So, we had a pretty bad lightning storm that already blew out my cable modem and some networking equipment. Was just sitting down to finally watch some TV when I started hearing a rythmic noise comming from the compressors on the outside wall behind my tv. Looked at my graph and saw this pattern in sync with the noise I was hearing.
Immediately turned off the thermostat, and went out to inspect. Pulled the cutoff fuse there at the unit and took a good look. Couldn’t see any damage or corrosion, put things back together and came inside. Turned the unit back on, no rythmic noise and the pattern looks more like this
Though right now I seem to be having a problem with the app…
Either way. I know there was a few threads about compressor restarts and “fixing” a/cs with similar problems. But I’m not even sure where to start, or what I would say is wrong, though it doesn’t seem to be happening right now.
Not in the mood to spend $125 on a service call after spending $400 replacing my networking gear if it’s a wild goose chase.
Any help welcome.
