Hello, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you!
So if I understand you correctly, The system is asking for 'COOL" outdoor unit isn't doing anything?
If you have something long and skinny that will fit in the slot of the outdoor unit force the fan to spin and let me know if it stays spinning
But does it continue to spin by itself?
Like under power of the fan motor?
Spin it hard if you can
Thermostat does indeed say COOL?
The 5 minute delay is normal to prevent short cycling. If the fan kept spinning you'd have a bad start capacitor, but since that isn't it then it most likely is a bad contactor.
Its in the outdoor unit. It could be other things such as computer board, thermostat, thermostat wiring, low voltage transformer, but most "LIKELY" the contactor. They are cheap and available at heating supply houses. They look like this.
