advice on cleaning the outside unit of AC

I want to clean the outside unit for my AC, and I found this *.co/3OPGN8O2SCLF.jpg switch outside. Do I need to pull this in order to disconnect the power to the unit?

If all you are ceaning is the outside case of the condenser you do not need to worry about the power. HOWEVER, if you want to open the condenser and clean the interior coils, then you need to disconnect the 240 volt power at the condenser and the turn off the inside system.

Hi there, I think you are cleaning first time. You need to turn off the system and should carry your work.
