AC Gone Crazy

My ac stops blowing and then turns back on by itself. I do not shut off or nothing it just happens. Does anyone know why it does this ?

You likely need to replace the final stage resistor/unit.

Final stage resistor. Easy replacement if you have small hands. Otherwise your hands will get cut up if you have normal - large sized hands. Good luck!

Is your climate control unit actually shutting off? My climate control unit seems to be losing power for a second and then coming back on for no reason.

Just had my final stage unit replaced late last fall.
