Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll do my best to help. Let's get started and see what we can do.OK to start with if the middle reading is 71 and target is 78, unit is not going to come on as we are already showing room temp is below the target. Try pressing the down arrow on lower right to set target temp to about 67 and see if ac will come on.
