    I see the problem is still on here, are you still having issues? the heat pump cycling is expensive and hard on the unit, so if you have not resolved this, it should be soon as possible.

    Check the thermostat also.

Amana 80sse furnace fire up work for about 10 min. It goes in lockout and inducer motor stay on

Robert, that is a typical indication of the furnace cycling on its high temperature switch. Look for a dirty filter, return air blockage or any other thing that would cause air flow restriction across the heat exchanger. If nothing else is evident, possibly attempt changing the heating speed to medium low or medium high for heat to improve air flow. But if it worked with no changes prior to this problem, it has to be lack of air flow that is causing the issue.

I have an Amana Distinction furnace, last heating season we had an issue with a lack of air movement to the second floor. We paid for a technician to come out. His solution - boost the blower speed.

If you have a variable speed motor The black wire going to the contactor relay is highest speed.or if there is a terminal strip near the motor there will be one wire and three places to plug a wire marked H, M, Low

Rudd Rheem 1068-311 62-23599-04 board how do I change blower speeds?

psc motors have 4 speeds each colored black blue yellow red and white. there are speed taps on the board labeled heat, cool, even heat/cool and usually Park or M1 male spade fittings for the unused speeds. on the door will tell you speed chart by wire color ie black is high and red is low speed. newer models ask you not to use red for heat. to change speeds is by changing wires and their system mode taps. (beware the push release female end locks into the board) If using black for both and there is a heat/cool tap make sure that the separate taps cool or heat are empty, or motor will receive 120 volts twice. 1 thing to remember a 3.5 ton blower with a 2 ton air cond. wouldn't want to use black too much air flow.
If you have a variable speed its all in the bible for a manual and which dip switch position for cfm air flow.

Payne air handler with possible GE X13 Failure

Check your dip switch settings on tonnage and your CFM per ton settings. Also make sure they wired the the low voltage for cooling to Y and not YLO if its a single stage compressor system.

I replaced my Janitrol 7 wire thermostat with an RTH7500 which now controls my heatpump system. The switches on the Janitrol were cool - off - heat - Em Heat. Does that mean I have auxiliary heat? There is...

There should be electric heat strips in the airhandler.

They automatically come on when the unit goes into defrost, the thermostat is turned up more than 7 degrees over the indoor temp or if the outdoor temp is just so cold the HP cannot keep up.

Tat is your auxillary or emergency heat.

What does the new t-stats installers booklet say that the 0170 function and #2 #7 options are for?

If it is for gas vs elec heat then set it on the elec option.

The difference is that in gas heat systems the blower comes on a few min AFTER the furnace fires up to allow the heat exchanger to get hot.
In an electric furnace the blower has to come on emediatly because the heat strips get hot emediatly and if the blower is delayed the system will shut of in high temp overload.

Disconnecting green wire from thermostate did allow furnace to run properly but every time I want to switch back to heatpump I must reconnect green wire again.Here is how wires are connected to...

Try this.

A T-stat.

Orange = O
Red = R (with existing jumper)
Black = C
Yellow = Y
White =W1 (Or AUG)
Green =G

At airhandler/furnace.

Green = blower wire (usually green, double check with schematic)
(Green should not go to the HP.)
Orange to HP
Red to red and to HP
black to blue (or C) and to HP
White to W
Yellow to HP. (It may also go to a "float switch" if installed. but that will just be a safety switch on the drain pan in case the line clogs and it overflows.)

The green is typically used for the blower motor. (furnace only)

The orange is used for the reversing valve. (changes from AC to heat, is located in the HP only)

Blue is typically used for common (or "C") but they may have changed it to black due to a broken wire, or other problems.

The only wires going to the HP should be

Orange should not be going to the furnace at all.

HP wiring should be
Orange to orange or O
Red to R or red
Blue/black to blue or C
Yellow to Y
