blower turns on, but not the condenser


(Massachusetts)

When I turn the central air conditioner On I can hear the blower come on but it just blows hot air. Out side the condenser unit doesn't come on.


I checked the Circuit breaker but it appears to be fine. What else could I check? The Thermostat is Honeywell (round). It's 1 year old and the central air conditioning unit is about 5 years old.

Capacitor?

I would check your run/start capacitor. Easy, do it yourself fix....

condensate removal pump?

You might check your condensate removal reservoir. If it is full, for example, if your condensate removal pump is broken, it will not allow the outside A/C unit to turn on.
