If you’ve got an air conditioner unit that’s giving you some major problems, you may need to repair it or replace it, particularly if you haven’t been maintaining it for a while. If you’re leaning towards the option of repairing it, then we’ve got just the list of instructions for you. Here is a list of things you need to do in order to get your AC to turn on.

• First, you need to turn the circuit breaker all of the way off, and then turn it back on.
• Now, you have to ensure that the unit is plugged on, as well as turned on.
• The next step is to ensure that the outlet is working. Do this by plugging in a light that works, not only for the standard-voltage models. Remember not the plug a light into a 220/240-volt receptacle.
• Check to see if the light comes on. If it doesn’t, then the circuit has probably overloaded so you need to take a look at the electric panel or the fuse box. You may then have to replace the fuse or reset the breaker.
• If the light does come on, then it may be that the air conditioner’s switch is faulty or that the thermostat needs some repairs need to be done or the thermostat simply needs adjusting.
• Now, set the thermostat to cool and make sure it’s below room temperature.
• If you’ve tried all of these things and you’ve still got no luck turning your air conditioner on, then you should probably refer to the owner’s manual, or unplug the unit and have one of our professionals take a look at it for you.
