Time Delay , is perfectly normal if you have a time delay installed in your unit or if you recently switched to a digital tstat!
Protects the compressor from short cycling!!!
Vendor and Model Number?
Not enough information for an meanful reply... What is the vendor and model number? What type of t-stat.
Many unit's do have a delay built in to allow pressure's to equalize across the compressor to prevent damage... But then again some do not.
Why not set the T-Stat and observe the unit's operation of a delta time increment of a dozen or so cycles... If it's doing it's job relax. Also would consider having the unit serviced once a year (BEFORE) the start of each cooling season. An experienced Tech can spot and easily correct problems that would be transparent to you...
Sound like a plan?
If you're still curious provide the Vendor; Unit's model number and date of manufacture. That way others may be able to give you a more detailed answer...
