Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Perhaps it's the control valve. There are so many perhaps here without someone qualified to check the unit anything would be a guess. You will need to spend a few dollars and get a technician in to check the unit for the cause properly.

The first thing you mention is that it is "NEW", this should be a warranty issue if indeed new, check your paperwork for the sale and installation warranties.
