The thermistor is and electronic sensor and part of the thermostat, it is the solid state device that sends a very low voltage signal that the system converts into room temperature, thermistors are very accurate devices and much better than the old Bi-Metal type of sensor, you may just have a connection problem, or the thermistor may be defective, testing by a qualified tech is required on site to fund the final repair solution, but I suspect the cost to repair will be fairly modest.

    Disconnecting the unit power will reset the code, but as soon as the system goes through prove out the problem will flash a code again, winter is coming do you want a temperature control issue right now?

    Any full service parts store like Sears and others can get the parts, they will come with instructions in most cases, also check on line, they are usually cheaper and have great tech telephone support for installing the part.

I have a Amana unit Model# PGA60C1152F that has a blinking light on the control board it blinks 4 times. That heat will come on then go off but the blower nevers comes on.


look on the inside of the door that you took off and there should be a diagram and on that there will flash code that will tell you what 4 flashes means.i think it is a flame rollout or high limit.

My Amana heat pump model PTH153B50AJ does not cool properly. The compressor comes on and the fan works.


This sounds like a freon problem your system probably has a leak in the system somewhere. Amana has tons of problems with there equipment. They make there coils paper thin and they split especially on a heatpump. Amana used to be a good brand and then got bought out by goodman manufacturing and have turned there product into ****. How old is this unit?

I have an Amana PTH153B50AK - The heat is blowing cold. Can you tell me which part needs to be replaced?


If the room air blower only puts out what feels like cold air and continues to run all the time it is an indication that the unit has a fault code stored in its CPU or central processing unit (better known as the circuit board). If the unit has a small viewing port either on the front panel or just behind the front panel, you can look into it and see a blinking LED light. Count the blinks and record. Sometimes there may be short and long blinks such 1 short and three long blinks. This could be an error code 13 or 31 depending upon the manufacturer. On the reverse side of the front panel, there should be a wiring diagram that also has a diagnostic chart that will tell you how to read the codes and where to start looking for issues based on the error code you recorded.

hope this helps, please rate my answer.

Blower motor runs but dies out..


When it does this carefully feel the end of the blower motor. If it is too hot to touch,Replace the blower motor.
Your 5 minute off sequence allows the motor to cool enough for a restart.
