Electrical Question From Robert About Troubleshooting
Question: Unfortunately, we are having to turn our air conditioners on already in the Midwest. I have two units, one for each level of my house. My unit downstairs will not turn on. I checked the fuse outside and swapped it with the upstairs unit and it still did not work.

Question: Unfortunately, we are having to turn our air conditioners on already in the Midwest. I have two units, one for each level of my house. My unit downstairs will not turn on. I checked the fuse outside and swapped it with the upstairs unit and it still did not work. I have a blown breaker in my breaker box that when I tried to reset, it popped and sparked. I know I have a junction box that may have some loose wiring but assumed the air conditioner was on a separate run. Would there be any other reason for my air not to work?

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
