Check the thermostat settings. Ensure the temperature selected is lower than the room temperature if set to "Cool" and higher than the room temperature if set to "Heat." When the desired room temperature is reached, the system will power down.

Check circuit breakers and fuses. Replace these as required.
Check the fins and coils on the outdoor unit. Ensure they are free of dirt and debris, and remove any twigs, branches or other obstructions that may be obstructing the fan blade.
Tips & Warnings
