Anyone know where the compressor reset switch is on a Lennox Value Series 10ACB36-11P air conditioning unit?
Here is what happened. I was outside and noticed (heard) the fan locked up on my unit. Not sure how long, but I don't think for very long. I shut down and took off the top. After turning everything back on, fan would not run. However, after getting it started with a finger, the fan would run. Compressor however, would not kick on and the obvious, no cool air in house. Everytime I restarted unit, I had to physically restart the fan by hand.
A buddy that does some HVAC work says the fan capacitor probably went bad and the compressor got hot, and the high pressure switch activated turning the unit off as a safety feature.
I plan on replacing the capacitor, but I can't find the switch on the compressor that he is speaking of.
The unit and freon levels where checked in the Spring by a paid service.
Thanks in advance.
