If the thermostat is set to “heat”, your air conditioner will not kick. So, make sure that the thermostat is set to “cool” and try turning it on.

Check the air filter

This may cause a low-pressure switch to trip and cease the compressor of your air conditioner. So, check your AC’s air filter; clean-up or replace it if necessary. Regular maintenance can help check the filter is dirty and fix it before turning into big issues.

Check the circuit breakers

If the circuit breaker is tripped, it may block the electric current from the power system. Check for any tripped breakers in the electric panel. If you find any, reset the tripped breaker into OFF position and then turn it into ON position. However, if the breakers trips immediately again, do not try to reset it; because, you may end up either with a grounded circuit or a short circuit. It is time to call a qualified technician for help.

Check the condensate drain

If the condensate drain is blocked with gunk, the drain float switch will shut down your AC to avoid any potential damages associated with water overflow. So, if the drain line is found clogged, you can use a wet-dry vacuum to suck out the gunk and free the blockages.
