I have a 5200 BTU Samsung window A/C with electronic control and I'd
like to know what kind of cycle time window A/C should be getting.
This thing has Energy Saver feature which slows down the fan immediately
upon compressor shutting off, then subsequently fan off. I thought this
was a neat feature so I don't have to listen to the fan when the unit
When I enabled the Energy Saver, I noticed the cycling is based on fixed
time and I feel that it's unusually short.
Compressor on: x min, where x is variable and can range from 3 to 10
minutes once the room has cooled down
Compressor off, fan low: 2 minutes even every time
Compressor off, fan off: 1 minute even every time
Compressor starts and repeats the cycle.
Total compressor off time between runs: 3 minutes.
Isn't this excessively short?
