Emerson Comfort Alert

ratio Member Posts: 2,871
Does anyone know, precisely, what causes a " short cycling" lockout, red on solid, yaller flashing 3? I found docs on its big brother the PerformanceAlert which calls out that alert as 240 starts with normal stops in a 24h period.

I assumed that the problem actually was short cycling & so I added a five minute delay on break timer. That seemed to help, but the unit (dual circuit 10 ton condenser) was locked out again this afternoon.

Information on this unit is scarce, & at least one guy I've talked to about it said he usually removes them if they keep tripping out.
