Condenser kicks on and then immediately off

Hello,

This is a new York 3 ton system. Worked great for a few weeks before this problem showed up.

The blower inside runs fine. Air comes out of my registers normally. Then I hear the condenser click on and then back off again, so the air is always warm. See the video:

Any ideas?

Welcome to the forums.

That doesn't sound too good and it certainly isn't good for the equipment. I would not have the system call for A/C and have that happen. Without a meter to make tests we'd have to guess at the problem. Obviously the compressor unit is only being activated for a second. A low refrigerant charge could cause that as well as a thermostat problem.

I'd call the installing company back.....stat !

Thanks for the ideas. Installer came back out and replaced an expansion valve.. so far so good.
