Customer: replied 3 years ago.

heating and cooling systems take a few minutes to kick in. It says its for the compressor protection so it won't damage the compressor? Any idea why it wouldn't just start up?

There is a five minute time delay. Does fan work in on position
Customer: replied 3 years ago.


yes fan does work when switched to on position. Just didn't know why there was a 5 minute delay or if that was normal for each time turning on the heat and the cooling system.

Yes there is a five minute delay each time. Your outside unit may have delay also. Is everything working. Russ
Customer: replied 3 years ago.


yes I believe everything is good to go.
