Had you just restored power or anything when you got this message?
Expert:  airheatman replied 1 year ago.
Normally a wait message indicates one of two things.Either the power has just been restored and thermostat has to find equipment or the outdoor is in a time delay mode to protct compressor.As ong as everything comes on within 5 minutes I would not be concerned.
