    Hi, I recently had an issue with my A/C compressor locking up and it caused my service disconnect to trip.  My service disconnect is located in a locked hall closet along with the meter.  I live in a multiple-occupancy building which does not supply power and does not have maintenance on site 24/7.  The incident happened on a Friday evening and maintenance refused to come out to reset my disconnect. My question is:  Is my HOA in violation of NEC code per 230.72(C) each occupant shall have access to the occupant's service disconnecting means?  I have contacted local code enforcement and he referred me to the fire inspector whom then referred back to code enforcement.
