@yogeshw and @Wintermute - thanks. I was just looking for thread from last month on polling users with problems and could not find it, so your recap works just as well. Putting list together for when I pick up my S: less than 30 days now!

Seemed to me that several people had issues with their A/C ceasing to function - remedy was to turn it off (think it had to thaw due to being frozen) for about 10 minutes then it would resume normal operation.
