LED upgrade fixes AC

Who would have thought LED light would help fix a continually running AC unit?

Also recommend these LEDs.

The video explains whats happening at about minute 4:44.. The A/C temperature sensor is next to the light fixture, a regular incandescent bulb is hot and the A/C thinks its HOT in the MH.

When I was young, I worked at a TV (television) repair shop (The good ole days when TVs had tubes in them), I remember one of the service calls I went on was a complaint that it would get cold in the house when the customer turned on their brand new TV.. We sort of knew what the problem was because we've seen this before.

YUP - Their brand new color TV (round picture tube) was located against the wall with the below the furnace thermostat..

It won't do MACH 2, but I can get a sandwich and take a pee.

Actually the video explains it in the first minute. The remaining time show the difference in light output, color, and temperature. If you are thinking of upgrading the LEDs this video should help.
