I would check the reversing valve. This is what switches the flow of refrigerant for Heating and cooling.There could be several other reasons that could cause it not to heat.
Good Luck, Sincerely, shastalaker7


ps Heat pumps are very temper mental, like I said there could be many things that could cause this problem, and I couldn't walk you through them all. If you have a split system, two piece unit, go to the out side unit and have some run the a/c in cool. Then after a few min. have them switch it to heat and you can hear the reversing valve switch to heat, as it will make a swishing sound.If it doesnt, the valve may be bad, no power to the coil on it, or even the coil could be burned out.

Was it new out of the box or did you buy it as an open box? Is it more of a musty smell or more of a rotting smell? Does the compressor stay on when you turn it on, or is it cycling on and off? Let me know what you find out and we can go from there.

Hi,
Have you checked the power to the unit??? The power on most of them feeds through the outdoor unit and then goes to the indoor unit...
There could be a circuit breaker tripped or there could be fuses in the disconnect box outside...

Check that you have power to everything...
If you do have power then there is a problem in the unit...probably a transformer burnt up...

Sounds like either bad reversing valve or to get you going during the summer someone may have wired it to stay energized all the time which would have been a thermostat problem.

The AC unit turns on and I can cycle through the options in order to adjust the fan speed however the fan does not start in any of the three settings. The ac unit produces cold air, however the fan does...


You say the unit produces cold air ??? where are you getting the cold air from???
If your fan does not run in any speed F1, F2 F3. and a funny smell sounds like the motor is bad
Mine works in F2, F3 but not in F1

It smells like burnt plastic after 30 min


is it new? how old is it? burnt plastic is the smell a bad motor produces. dont worry, i dont think it will cause a fire, but a fan motor on its way out will stink!
if its relatively new, return it. if not, get a new one!

Many thermostats have a setting to keep the fan running instead of cycling with the compressor. Check its settings.
