A/C on and off trouble

I live in Delaware and have a (Carrier Multi poise Oil Furnace model 58CMA my A/C unit is Carrier model 38TRA)

I have my A/C set on auto it comes on cools down the house however once cooling temp has been reached and the unit shuts off it will not kick back on when the house temp goes above temp setting unless I use the reset switch located on the furnace.(pics attch)

Also when it shuts off it sounds like water it still circulating however (THERE ARE
NO WATER LEAKS ANYWHERE). Any help would be most appreciated

The "circulating water" could likely be the condensation draining. Mine does the same thing. It doesn't drain like it should when the unit is running and drains like crazy as soon as the unit shuts off. My best guess is that the condensate drain is not designed properly such that there is too much suction in the drain line preventing the condensation from draining while the unit is running. Could also be the freon still moving through the lines until the pressure equalizes.

Does it have good air flow with that Oil furnace; many don't due to restriction between cooling coil & large HT-EX; or is yours a down-flow system?
