Question about GE Zoneline AZ38H12DAD Split System Air Conditioner
The most common cause is the fan relay on the main circuit board. However, if the outside temperature is 30degF and the inside is 60-65degF then the cause could be the insulation is ruined or missing on the backside of the unit's firewall. This can cause the unit's internal thermocouple wire to read below 45degF which is the freeze sentinal temp level. Anything below this temp level will cause the unit to come on for a few minutes to warm up the air and bring it to 46degF or higher to protect internal plumbing from freezing.
The best way to check for this is to manually set the unit to one of the heat modes and the thermostat up just until the heater comes on. Let it run until the unit turns itself off. Then set the mode switch back to Off and see if the unit still cycles on and off as before.
If it does then the main circuit board should be replaced unless you are comfortable de-soldering and re-soldering another fan relay in place.

If the unit switch is in the stop position and still operating may be there is something wrong with your control. Try to unplug the unit to reset the control error and operate it for testing. But if the symptoms persist please call a qualified technician.
