Russ here. Welcome. I am here to help. Please do not rate until you are satisfied with answer. Always available for follow up questions. Waiting is a five minute delay on thermostat. Does the inside fan work. Id so check to see if you have a float switch in the drain line near unit that might be tripped. If it is not tripped go to outside unit and feel fan on top to see if it is hot. Russ

Hello Russ and thank you for the reply. The inside fan did indeed work for about 5 minutes after the Wait message went away. I do not believe that there is a float switch on my unit because I have searched before. The kind I am looking for would be connected to the white piping unless there is another version I should look for. If the outside fan you mean is on top of the condenser unit, then no, it did not feel warm but has not been on for several hours. What else should I check?

Hey Russ, I'm not sure what the turn around time is supposed to be, but it is past 1:30am here and I can't stay up anymore.

Sorry had power outage here for 3 hours. Need model number of unit please. If you can remove front cover. You will see terminals R Y G O W Take a small wire and jumper between R and G to see if fan comes on and runs. Checking thermostat operation now. Russ
