I know this is late but I had to add a solution to this problem since I had the exact same problem and was able to solve it. The probelm is not your control board. On these units, the heat pump compressor will not kick in unless the temperature you set on the control panel is within 2-1/4 degrees (or 4 degrees depending on your unit model. Otherwise, the unit locks out the compressor until the electric heat coil bring the indoor temperature up to that level - and then will switch the compressor back on for heat pump operation. So the problem is not the control panel or the compressor, it the electric heat coil. The coil has two manual limit switches on it that may be tripped and should be checked. The coil can be easily accessed by shutting down the power, removing 4 screws around the air outlet, pushing the screen up and sliding the panel out the top. The power wires can remain in place while the limit switches are reset. Hope it works.

sounds like your switch dial is backfit try pull it out and reset it back the right way

Your question is worded strangely, did you have an electrical fire in the unit? My guess is that you have not kept the filter clean and now you need to take it to a service company for the replacement of the heater's fuseable link.

check thermostat contacts, possibly not sending signal to pick up

Yes you could have a bad overload on the heater element which is fairly simple to fix. To test for this pull the heater out and get an ohmeter set it to continuity and check the continuity first through the entire heater element then if there is none pin point the overloads and check to see which one has no continuity.

How are you determining that one section.is cold and one warm? If this is in fact the case you have a blockage in the coil or a compressor that is down provided this is a multi compressor unit.

I'm leaning 2 directions, one is that your tstat is sensing your heatpump can not keep up with the load. Therefore bringing on heat strips or two, you have a cycles per hour limit set for compressor heating and your machine is cycling too often.

F1 - Control Board Failure - Replace control board (ERC). F2 - Oven Temperature Too Hot - Replace oven temperature sensor. F3 / F4 - Shorted or Open OvenTemperature Sensor - Replace oven temperature sensor. F5 / F6 / F8 - Control Board Failure - Replace control board.

Clean the filter and try it again

I would guess two possible problems - dirty thermostat contacts and many appliances are also fitted with a thermal fuse or other type of thermal cutout which might have failed.

How much power is the question. Remember, heating coils usually require 240 volts. You likely are only getting 115 due to a faulty limit switch. 115 will carry through to the other side of the switch from the coil side leading you to believe the switch is good. Remove both sides of switch and test continuity.

Motor might be bad and shutting down on thermal protection. Is this a direct drive or belt driven ? .if belt driven try adjusting the belt tension or just replaced the motor
