My AC unit compressor is not switching on. It might be failure of a capacitor or not. Any suggestions?

A.c.'s and furnaces are not something for a person to fool with unless you are qualified. About 85% of air conditioner and furnace problems are from people not maintaining them once a year. It takes more than just changing the filter monthly to maintain these appliances. You should have both tuned up once a year. It's no different than changing the oil in your car and maintaining your vehicle. Call a professional. The average cost of maintaining these appliances is a lot less than replacing them or paying for an expensive repair. Most companies have sales in the Spring and Fall for maintenance. Check with your better business bureau and hire a reputable company to do this.

This question came to my mind after seeing my brother's air conditioning unit. From what he tells me, his son and a couple of his friends were throwing some pebbles at it. Because of that, it damaged parts of the fan and that was what got me worried. I think he would be more worried because it seems like he might either need to replace the fan or just do a new air conditioning installation because the unit is hardly working now. How much damage would a chipped fan do if it were to be ignored?
