When the unit started clicking (both inside and outside), I set the thermostat to have the fan on and the heat off. The clicking stopped immediately and the fan kept running. As soon as I turned the heat back on, it started clicking again. Also, if both inside and outside units are clicking and I turn up the temperature on the main thermostat, when it reaches a certain point (a few degrees higher than the current temp), the thermostat will click and the indoor unit will stop clicking. The outdoor unit will still be clicking and doing it's power dip routine.
I looked at the thermostat wiring and tried to compare it to the junction box wiring, but am having trouble making sure it's right. Maybe the thermostat is wired wrong and causing the issue? The thermostat is a RiteTemp 6022 (a Google search will take you to their site and an install guide). I have wires connected to the C, O, W2, Y, RC, and G terminals on it. The main unit's junction box has wires connected to R, O, B, G, T, W1, and Y. The instructions mention about auxillary heat, which I have no idea if I have or not. Can you tell that from the schematics or wires mentioned? There is a jumper set on number 8 that on means heat pump or off means "normal". The operation guide says that if the heat pump isn't working properly, I could move the jumper from number 8 to number 6 to temporarily make it auxillary only.
I'll be able to check the outdoor unit's connections, etc. on Saturday. Do you think you'd be able to look into the thermostat wiring for me ?
