I almost started to sweat but wanted to test the system so waited longer but still the cooling function little green light with the little snow drop sign stayed off. Finally, I gave up and turned it on manually. Is this a malfunction or do we always should turn the cooling function on/off manually?
If you manually turned the A/C off ('snowflake' switch light off) it will not turn back on automatically regardless of what temp you have set. You need to turn it on (green light on) and then press auto. It will maintain your desired temp whether that requires cooling or heating.
