AC compressor kicks off sometimes ???
Yesterday I ran the AC for first time since last season.
I have noticed this before as well, that on the "Low" speed fan setting that that AC Compressor seams to kick off sometimes. When it does the fan of course continues to run and then after several minutes the Compressor will kick back on run 10 minutes or so then maybe kick off again. Cycling on an off a few times untill the thermostat is satisfied.
I have never noticed the Compessor kick off when the Fan is on the "High" speed setting. It always runs continiously untill the thermostat is satisfied.
Is this normal ??
I know the Compressor is suppose to kick off if there is iceing on the coils, maybe that what is happening.
On the low speed (Fan) setting the coils start to ice up, maybe quicker than on the "High" speed setting. I'm guessing maybe on high there is more cool air being extracted from the coils there for no iceing and no kicking off the compressor. I'm really guessing on this, maybe someone can shed some light on this subject.
P.S. I usually set the thermostat at 70 ish, some times 68.
Any info appreciated.
