if you have the right voltage & the fan runs but not the compressor, maybe a wire is burnt off or you need a capacitor OR the compressor is bad. an 18,000 btu may have a 35/5 mfd capacitor on it so you need to find the "size" which is on it - do NOT forget to write down which terminals the wires are connected to - there will be an H for Hermetic a C for Common and an F for fan.
