2 week old unit the t stat clicks the air handler kicks on the codenceing fan kinks on but the compressor stays off
Hi, this unit has a time delay relay built into the thermostat and also has a small time delay relay that is in the condenser unit. Since both units are coming on, but the compressor is not energized, this tells me the delays are working if the outdoor unit kicks on, so that rules the delays out. Even though this unit is brand new, what will keep this compressor from coming on is if when this system was installed, they did a poor job on there brazing of the copper joints and it may have lost its freon charge. This happens a lot. It will shut off on its low pressure switch. Everything seems to be working good from what you have said but the compressor. There is nothing you can do, but you can call out the installers to find out what is keeping the compressor off as it is still under warranty, and the compressor will have a 1-year warranty anyway. Come to think of it, if it has lost its freon, the fan would not run on the condenser outdoors, so that's not the problem. It may have a problem with the compressor, as I have seen them come from the factory with problems!! It does happen, you know the saying even though its new doesn't mean it works. Call them out a.s.a.p. to solve this for you as you may have lost the compressor already. Do this now and keep me posted. Please don't forget to rate me on this as I know you will be kind. I will keep checking back in on you as I keep all of your information on file if I need to get in touch with you, and you can reach me through my user name below. Keep me updated on this, so call them out know and say you want them out now. You paid good hard earned $$$ for this so you should not have to wait.
