Removed A/C Blower to Clean Now No A/C

I cleaned my coil today and noticed a lot of mold in my blower. I took the blower out and cleaned it as well. I put ever thing back and now the AC doesn't turn on. Nothing happens when I turn on the thermostat.... inside or outside. Any suggestions? Is there any way to send power to the blower fan to make sure the motor works fine?

There are a few things to check...

Did you wet the motor? This might trip a breaker


Is the door switch depressed? I sometimes need to bend the door switch closer to the door

Did you turn off a square D breaker type service disconnect? Those things are prone to failure.

Will Compressor run if Fan Faulty?

If tge inside fan blowwer motor is broken, will the outside unit also not turn on?

I think it will short cycle, because it will have no "load".

Threads combined. We keep all like posts on one topic contained in one thread.

There is a safety switch on the blower door. If it's not pushed in tightly by the door.... nothing will work.

Not sure what the yellow line is. Pictures are very helpful. How-to-insert-pictures
Is this a furnace or just an air handler ?
A model number of it is also helpful.

As mentioned.... it doesn't matter if the inside blower is working.... the outside condenser will run for a short while until it overheats or freezes up and then it needs to cool before restarting.
