So I’m calling a tech in the morning, but just wanted to run this by the folks here first.
Tonight while the A/C was running, power tripped to the entire house, and quickly came back on. The A/C kept running when power came back on for a few minutes, then shut off. Now, it won’t come back up. I checked all the breakers and they look ok. Funny thing is, nothing will work. The furnace doesn’t kick on, and turning on the fan blower doesn’t work either. Just as a quick test, I cut the power and wired the r and y terminals together, powered up, still nothing.
I’d like to think this is just a bad thermostat, but when I wired the terminals together, that should’ve bypassed it. Any quick ideas? Like I said, I’m calling a tech in the morning, but I’m just looking for some ideas of stuff to think about.
