One of several things happened:
1) Your AC was on its last legs and then died. Search under "Cheap fridges and AC" for a place to order a new Carrier AC, and install it yourself for half the price of a new one installed at TenterWorld.
2)You overloaded the circuit at the house/shop/motel that you plugged it into. Reset the breaker and plug it into a 30 amp circuit.
3)You ran the AC on low current, damaging it or causing it to overheat and then a circuit breaker or fuse in you unit blew. Look for these and replace or reset.
Probably #1 or #3. A new AirV AC should run about $600, shipped. Installing it isn't tough, if you have a friend that can help you lift about 70lbs, and a couple of ladders.
