New unit, installed last year: Carrier Performance compressor #24APA and a FV4B air handler. Works great except one small glitch: After any sort of service interruption, i.e. power outage durning a thunderstorm, even a momentary flicker, the compressor won't restart. The air handler comes back, but no cooling. One has to switch the breakers on and off, (even though they do not apear to be tripped) and then wait about 10 minutes for the compressor to reset itself and come back on line.
Is this a common problem with the controls on these units? Is there a work around? If you're away on vacation and this happens, you loose the A/C until you return. This can get real ugly real fast here in South Florida.
