Yep, that's what he says, but he also says it won 't shut off till he shuts off breaker....that leads me to believe it is actually running which will sound
like it's humming. If it was a bad capacitor, it would shut itself off due to overload on or in compressor....just say'n

Maybe I have not stated right if I turn the fan to on or auto and turn the breaker on it starts blowing cold air. But if you turn it off compressor continues to hum fan stops.

Are you going to try and fix yourself or is it in warranty? What state are you from?

Going to start with the basics t stat and a relay i found could be the problem when i googled the problem. If looking at those doesn't come up with a result I will probably have somebody look at it.

Think I got it figured out, as others have said I believe its the control board. I put the old analog t stat in and it still did it , found the compressor relay on the board and unhooked it and it didn't happen anymore. that relay is supposed to be a normally open so I believe its the problem.

Thanks all for the input replaced the compressor relay control board today and everything seems to be working right so far. Came with new digital thermostat and an updated digital board. Less wires, not a lot of instructions only downfall.

New control all wired in tested while still all open . Be careful while electric is live if you test like this.
