Question about Heating & Cooling
If this si what I am thinking it is, it will be very hard to find and prove....
The compressor windings have aflat spot and if the motor stops at the right place it will not atart. The voltage goes way up and kicks out the thermal over load and gives you the alarms that you are getting.
The motor cools down and you reset the unit, the motor has moved just a tick trying to start the last time so now it is off of the bad start spot and will take off and run till it stops at the bad spot again....
Did that make any sense???
Long story short your compressor is going bad...problem will be to get it changed under waranty and convincing the installing company that you have a problem that requires a compressor replacement...
See if you can get them on a short leash and have them come before you reset the alarms and hopefully maybe they can catch what it is doing...
This is and will be a tough one... I've been there with a customer or two already... no fun... trying to figure things like this out!
I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!
Thanks for using Fixya!!
