2 yo unit, central air and heat pump
Suddenly the mai breaker was in off position
I try to switch to ON - no luck - clickin and goes to off
After about 1 hour ( i've check breaker - ok, kick the ouside unit- compressor), the breaker fixed in on position, but ac does not cool - fan is working.
Any ideas?

a couple of ideas

if the breaker was tripped, it would indicate a short or overamp condition. when you tried to reset the breaker the first time and could not, was the thermostat calling for cooling? i would look closely at all wiring connections inside the unit, especially at the compressor. you may have a "hard start" condition that is causing the compressor to pull high amps on startup, possibly a tight compresor. the fact it is now running and not cooling indicates that the compressor is not running.
