Thanks! Y'all just saved me from digging out the manual on our maiden voyage. Dealer prep guy said to leave fan on high always.

Why did the the dealer prep guy say that? Sounds like a statement not based on fact.

Sounds like a "boondock" guy.

I have heard this is a technique to reduce start up amperage when running on the generator.

Since the compressor and the fan motor have peak amperage draws during startup that drop after the motors are on speed, a generator operating at the margins may not be able to handle starting the fan and the compressor concurrently.

I solved this problem by installing a fan delay relay allowing the compressor to start up first, followed 5 seconds later by the fan motor.

Just cut the fan wire coming from the thermostat and connect the ends to the two lugs on the relay. Do not cut the jumper and turn the dial all the way to the left (plus a smidge).

I had a control board replaced on the AC on my 2012 Sunseeker under warranty in 2013. Since then, the compressor starts first and then the fan (both AC and heat pump).

I love this forum. Have never needed the furnace before when plugged in. This morning I turned it on and had the same issue. Within minutes I had the solution simply by checking this forum. Thanks.
