Why is my outside air unit not coming on?

AC not turning on could be the result of a blown fuse located at something called a safety shut-off box. This should be found close to your AC unit. Check to see if you have a blown fuse, and be sure to replace it if that’s the case. Even if the fuse doesn’t appear to be damaged, go ahead and replace it anyway.

If the heat pump is not turning on, check if the power socket has been switched on. If the power source is on and it is still not working, check to see if the fuse in the heat pump has been tripped or blown. If the fuse is the issue, reset it or replace it, depending on the situation.

Is the outside fan supposed to run when the AC is on?

Your split-system cooling system won’t work unless both units – the indoor evaporator and the outdoor condenser/compressor – are operating. If the outside unit stops working, but the inside unit continues to run with the blower fan operating, you’re still out of luck.
