If it says "recovery" the cooling should be running is it not? It is saying recovery because the house is so much hotter than what the program setting should be. if the cooling isn't coming on then there is a problem with your system. Is the indoor unit running? Is the outdoor unit running but just the fan not spinning? If the outdoor unit is running is the big copper line with black insulation around it cold and wet or warm and dry?
