Default a/c unit not working

Several weeks ago the roof mounted a/c heater unit ran fine...went out today and nothing. No fan, no heat, no ac. I have no idea what the problem is. I have power to the c/b and the breakers are on. I have power on the line at c/b to the ac unit.

I pulled the inside cover and tested the power at the rotary switch where the romex came in and nothing. Although, this might be a lead from another connection where the power comes into the unit. I am not sure.

I suppose you need to trouble shoot these on the top of the unit? What are the steps?

Has the plug to the AC worked loose? I hope it has, that's an easy fix.

Default AC

I just purchased an 2007 towlite 19T but the air conditioning will not work. Where can I start to find out if it needs to be replaced?

Like the above post says, start at the A/C breaker, ensure power to the breaker AND out of the breaker. Turn breaker Off and check output-should be none- breaker on should be power. If that's ok, go to the A/C outlet and again check for power. Got it there? Then go to the A/C's power box. If there's power there, then you have a A/C problem, but it could be simply a capacitor loose wire, etc. Friend in the A/C buiss? Call him. Check breaker, check power cable outlet, ensure it's plugged in tight. Welcome aboard, by the way ! !

Have you located the electric cord to the top that supplies the juice. It is usually a 10 gague tan cord that plugs in in the bathroom

Is the a/c cord plugged in to the a/c gfi outlet? If so, does the gfi outlet need to be reset?

Soonerbabe,
How are you making out with the A/C?

Welcome to the forum. If you are plugged into household current, you probably won't have enough umph to run the AC.
