Question faulty ac or thermostat???

I have a Trane xe1000 AC unit and a honeywell thermostat. When I set the temp lower than the temp in the house it will blow what seems to be cool air (that may have nothing to do with the unit) for just a few minutes. Ultimatly the temp rises in my house as it gets warmer outside. There are a lot of conflicting settings on the thermostat. It never kicks on by itself but always breifly when I manually reset the temp. I'm clueless

Does the thermostat use batteries? Can you post the make & model of the thermostat?

if you have wake,leave,return and sleep modes set them all for the same temperatures that will give you a constant running temperature.say 65F see if the house cools down

If the A/C (the inside blower + the outdoor compressor and fan out there) only runs for a few minutes - then naturally the house is going to warm up since the a/c shut off. And it is a good bet then that something is wrong with the functions the way the stat is set up or it's (lack of) power. And that is where your attention should be directed.

Hey, you might want to check out Thermostats from Venstar, Honeywell, Carrier - HVAC-Outlet.com. I was having an issue with the stats in my new condo and they totally helped me out! It was nice that I could actually talk to someone too. Their number is 866-991-HVAC

Did this problem just start?
Have you always been able to use the stat before?
