A/C Unit Cycling

We have a 2017 Sunseeker 2400ws. When running the A/C, I notice that it sometimes seems cycle - ramping down then ramping up again. I don't think the compressor shuts off. Is this some kind of safety feature?

No not a safety feature but designed that way. On Auto the fan blows on high until within a few degrees of the set temperature and then it switches to low speed. Fan comes to a stop when switching speeds (compressor does not stop.) That is what you hear. A bit disconcerting, but normal operation. Bugs me every time.

I've noticed that too in my 2017 Sunseeker 2250. I always run my thermostat fan in the "AUTO" mode and I just assumed that it was just changing the fan speed from HI to LOW and vice versa.

If your thermostat FAN speed is set on AU for Auto, this cycling is probably the unit switching from HI to LO and back to HI -- automatically. If you're in AUTO, the fan doesn't always run the same speed. That's how mine works. YMMV

I hate it.
Why doesn't it just shut off when it reaches the desired temp?

I don’t hate it but sure would like to be able to override the fan constantly running. Sometimes its good, sometimes not so much.

I have mine set on auto it shuts off when temp reaches what I have it set for on thermostat. Default is 2 degrees under but you can change it to 1.

A/C is fixed at 2 degree. Heat is adjustable 1 or 2 degrees.

Perhaps our thermostats are different. I reset mine to 1 degree but it didn't seem to change. After rereading the manual it said the adjustment was for heat setting, no mention of A/C. Easy to do, give it a try.
