Default Well, crap. The ac is down

All of a sudden, the home a/c doesn't come on. Good thing it's not too hot.
Called the service guy. We'll see how this goes...

Is everything dead? Blower? Heater? If it's all dead, have you checked the fuse? If your thermostat has a battery, have you replaced that?

I have changed the batteries in the thermostat.
Swapped in a new thermostat, that I had, but never used.
Turned circuit breaker off and on.
Removed air filter.
Unit seems to turn on for about 20 seconds, then stops.
Seems to be short cycling. Probably low refrigerant.
Waiting for the tech.

No fan on one of the two units tonight... 100 plus heat indecies this weekend...glad I have reserve window units. I will never purchase another Tempstar branded product; a fan every year for each of the last 6 since both units were replaced brand new. Good warranty, but bad product quality mars the ownership experience.

Doesn't quite start completely?
Had a Dual cap crap out 2 months ago.
After $160.00 to replace it (service call, trouble shoot, replace cap),
I now know I could have done it myself for ~$20.00.
Still, better than a $5K bill for a new unit.

Yeah, thanks! I'm still in shock.
This service contract thing has been totally worth it.
