Key1cc sorry for stealing your thread. I am curious your outcome because I plan on having the same thermostat (Possibly the 802) installed. I am no expert, but I would think you would get some cycling when it is mildly warm outside (like 75-80) and long run times when it is (90-100). What is the outside temp when you notice this short cycling? Thanks
Yesterday it was 90 degrees outside....and I'm not sure 6-10 minutes is defined as short cycling. I took the advice of this site and set my cyles per hour from 3 to 2 today at lunchtime. Afterwork I will monitor it closely this evening to see how it does. The temp will be in the low to mid 90's.
My compressor protection time is set at 5 minutes.
