Check your home's circuits and fuse box. If you have an open circuit breaker or burned-out fuse... Switch on circuit or replace fuse.
Hold your hand in front of your indoor vents. Do you feel air, but air that hasn't been cooled? This usually means that your indoor unit is running, but not your outdoor unit. If this is the case... You might have a frozen line between your fan and compressor.

Temporary solution:
Turn off your thermostat and leave it off for 1-3 hours.

Permanent solution:
Contact your dealer.

If your system IS cycling constantly, and IS reaching its set point... This usually means that your system's working fine, but your local temperatures are constantly in the extreme, so your system's working extra hard to meet that set point.
  If your system IS cycling constantly, but ISN'T reaching its set point... Contact your dealer.
