I didn’t know how to post my resolution of my question about my ac unit in my condo . I struggled to find an answer. But I started basic troubleshooting, first changed batteries in thermostat, replaced AC filters, checked to be sure it wasn’t frozen then attempted to flush drainage tube wholla ... it was plugged! I flushed with white vinegar and water reconnected tube .., presto ac worked perfect. So before you call call an overpaid after hour service tech check out simple possibilities including your circuit breaker to be sure is isn’t tripped!!! And just saying... I am a senior female

      I was proud bc I’m sick of these tech overcharging me replacing parts that are not needed and coming three times before finding solution. I am sure they would have put parts in not needed. All day the ac was cranking out cold with no further problems!

    Congratulations on your problem solving. Often times our problem just needs a simple fix. I've often used a Google search to ask a question for help in various ways and usually others have had a similar problem and you can learn from others rather than reinventing the wheel. Happy you were successful in locating and solving your a/c issue.
