    20 to 30 min ON; 7 to 10 min OFF

    My AC......90 degrees outside, 76 degrees inside, NY State

    cycles as shown in subject.

    is this correct? Or does something look wrong? I gave a range of on and off because it is not always exactly the same, but it is in the range given

    Put the stopwatch away IMO.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    Hey, I running one on mine now. Its been running non stop for over 4 hours.
    Feels great in here. Its working fine. OD temp 92.5, ID temp 72.2. (dang kids been running in and out)

    OP, long run times are normal when the OD temp is above 90°, your cycles are fine.

    Like others have said... Long runtimes (near constant) here to maintain 72* with 95* OD temp. Once you get near/reach your design temp this isn't irregular. You also don't have your thermostat set that low.

    I don't have 4 hour run times, I have 20 to 30 min run times. Are you saying that 30 minutes is a long run time and that I am fine?

    30 minutes is a good run time, for your OD temp and ID setting.

    5 hours is a long run time but necessary

    if it's sunny and > 95'F out
    and thermostat is set to 75'F.
