Incoming Power Problem
The central air condensing unit is energized with 240 volts of electricity. This electricity then flows through the disconnect box to the compressor and condenser fan motor. The disconnect box enables the air conditioning unit to be turned off outside. The disconnect boxes includes a cartridge which may contain fuses. If the compressor and condenser fan motor do not run, the disconnect box fuses may have blown, or the circuit breaker supply power to the disconnect box may have tripped. To determine if the disconnect box fuses have blown, use a multimeter to test the fuses for continuity. If the disconnect box fuses do not have continuity, replace the disconnect box.
