last night the whole neighborhood lost power for nearly 5 seconds and
then when it came up apparently it tripped the ac comressor breaker.
I found this out becuase the ac was not blowing cold air. when I tried
reseting it , it keeps popping back.
I tried so many times but as soon as I reset the breaker it pops back
again. I cna see the lights dim for a fraction of a second and i pops
back.like almost immediately.
I checked out everything and all looks fine.
What should I do....
Are you aware that the whole country (USA) is NOT in the snow belt. High
temperature here has still been hitting the low to mid 80's. A cold front
just came through. Tonight's low will get down into the 50's. Tomorrow's
high will be 75. I will be happy to not have to run the AC for a while.
Shut it off and leave it off for about 3 hours...seriously.
If it runs, leave it be. If not, then call a professional in for complete
diagnosis and repair, along with any information your home owners might need
as most will cover this....IF and ONLY if its actually due to the outage,
and not just plain wear and tear....like on a 14 year old unit....
