    The only thing I can recommend, is having a talk with the compressor, it is probably feeling a little confused and vulnerable right now. Oh yeah. DUDE

    I agree you might have been blowing it off to play with your pretty t-stat with lights bells and whistles.I would be devastated as well.

    Now by accident the first time and to check if it really happened the 2nd time I shut the switch from cool to off but then turned it right back to cool and bumped the temp down and the ac came on.

    I then remembered it is not supposed to do this so I shut it off. Then like an idiot I tried it again to see IF that was what happened and it was.

    So...did I hurt anything by doing this twice ??? I know I shouldnt do this right ??

    I assume that the delay is built in the stat and when we shut the switch to off it reset the stat because when you stay in the cool mode and it goes of and you bump the temp down it will wait the 5 minutes to come back on


    Hope I didnt hurt anything...


    185 posts on this wonderful site and your still running that brand of stat?? Come on DUDE time to get with the program!
