If there's no debris or anything in the blower wheel then your blower wheel could be off balance. You might have to clean the blower wheel fins or have to tighten the blower wheel to the motor shaft.

The unit could be undersized, the blower could be in low speed, etc. If your higher than the first floor you'll need to move a lot of air to cool your space in this heat.

Sounds like an average cycling time considering the fact that it's an older house with not much of an R-Factor. I wouldn't worry. Just keep your filters clean and you'll be fine.

Is the $ 293.00 including the service call ?

Sure you didn't burn up the transformer in the air handler somehow ?

The only other reason why you'd have no power to the unit would be a bad breaker or breaker is off. That's it.

Could be a capacitor, could be a bad blower motor, could be a stuck relay. Does the fan start when you put it in the ON position (on the t-stat) ?

In all honesty it's all the same crap anymore. I would buy the York only because parts are more plentiful, cheaper and easier to get. Carrier units use their own replacement parts, motors, boards...
