Most thermostats have a 5 min delay to protect the compressor.

Welcome to the forums.

Many/most thermostats have a 5 minute compressor turn on delay.
Some A/C condensors have a 5 minute timer board in them.
Some heat pumps have a delay built in.

We'd need a make and model of the condensor to check further.
The new control board should have come with some type of documentation.
A delay may be indicated on there.

Usually when the compressor cap is bad the compressor will hum loudly or cut out on thermal overload pretty quickly.
