How did you manually start the condensing unit? Did you bypass the contactor?

If you flip the switch on the thermostat to ON instead of AUTO, does the fan run?

comment Multiple recepticles in a circuit which covers multiple rooms, all controlled by a single GFCI receptacle
@HenryJackson The multiple GFCIs in kitchens are likely not on the same circuit, as NEC requires a minimum of 2 small appliance circuits in kitchens. In any case, you should not connect a GFCI device on the load side of another GFCI device.

comment How to resolve a crack in the shower floor?
Depending on the material the pan is made from, it may be possible to patch the crack. However, if there isn't proper support under the pan, this crack or other cracks will likely reappear.

comment Is it possible to reduce the diameter of a drill bit?
Use the 6mm bit, and wiggle it a bit to widen the hole to 6.25mm. If you're dealing with such precision, you should probably be using specialty tools. For reference: 6.5 mm = 0.255906 in., 6.25 mm = 0.246063 in. A difference of 0.009843 in. or ~5/512 in. (0.009765625).

Why do you recommend using both types of dope at the same time? Is there an advantage to using both together?

Has this setup ever worked with the A/C? Did you change anything, or did it just stop working?

Including the make and model of the furnace and condensing unit might be useful. A schematic for the furnace would also be helpful.
