Unhappy HELP....I clean out my pipe with vinager and water and the AC unit was still on!

Hello,
I forgot to turn off my ac unit before pouring vinager and water into my pipe during the same time I did not close the pipe plug. Then I turn off unit and clean out Safe-T- Switch then it work for about two day and now my ac unit does not blow air out the vents. Can you tell me what could have gone wrong? What need to be replace?

Model FX4DNF031T00AAAA

Welcome to the forums! What pipe did you pour vinegar into? If it was the pan drain to the evacuation pump, it should have had no affect on the operation of the A/C. Did you reconnect the safety switch after you fiddled with it? The reason your A/C doesn't blow air is because your air handler had become disabled. Have you checked your breaker panel for a tripped breaker? Does the limit (safety) switch remain open or is it closed?

I did replace safe-t-switch.
Where is the air handler....will search in manual...do I have to buy a new part?
Checked breaker, it was still on.
Yes, safe-t-switch remain close.
Double check everything turn on unit, fan outside is working, the wire pipe is cool and warm to touch, but is still stop it to blow air out but it has a trying sound.

The air handler is the unit inside the house where you poured your vinegar. It houses the fan that blows air when the unit is on. You say it has a "trying" sound. If the motor was replaced, I would contact the installer and have them look at it since it may still be under warranty. It could be seized up. If the door/panel to the air handler is not closed properly it may not contact a switch needed for the air handler to run. Post pictures of the switch, door, pipe, etc, anything you think we may need to see on this unit. http://www.doityourself.com/forum/el...your-post.html
