I don't even know if I am doing this right or if I am on the correct forum. I am clueless. Anyway, I just spent $ on my central air unit because it was running constantly and on auxillary (the little green lite stays on) plus the air blowing through the vents was warmish. Serviceman changed a part (definite purpose contactor 1 pole ?) because he said the ants got to it and then told me I had to spend another $ to change out the thermostate (digital) because the old thermostate was making the unit run continually. He also told me I need freon but I can only afford so much in one day.
Well, the guy left over 5 hours ago and the unit is still running constantly---set at 75 to cool in the auto position. Even after changing the thermostate. I have put in three calls and each time I am told that because it is over 85 degrees outside the unit will run constantly.
Is this true or am I being handed a load of bull hockey? I am wondering if I should put a stop order on that check until they fix this thing.
PS. The unit just shut off and after 4 minutes came back on. So the unit is running for over an hour and shuts off for 4 minutes and then comes back on for one hour. Will the temp outside cause this?
thanks for any and all replies.
