Question about Friedrich Heating & Cooling

Open Question

Friedrich YM18 230 volt heat pump. The unit has heated and cooled well for about 5 years. Just started heating mode recently and the unit no longer heats. Fan runs OK. Was able to get the heat strip to run for a few minutes (smelled the dust accumulated over the summer burning off). Now, no heating whatsoever. When in the "Money Saver" mode, nothing happens. Fan will not come on and unit will not heat. With "Money Saver" mode off, the fan runs.

SOURCE: axu heat and outside blower fan run all the time

I can tell you exaclty whats wrong . and it sounds like multipart problems. you have an old RUUD heat pump and its reversing vavle is stuck. without that valve opening it will contantly try to run in refrigerant mode to make heat. and here its 26 degrees, het pumps are only made to be effiient in over 34 degrees and that why your electric heaters in the blower section in an in a closit of unit
continously running up you eectric bill big time. cuses for the reversing valve to stick are sitting along time when it was low on refrigernt. or ust plain shut depending on its age. that cicking is the relay trying to open or close the reversing valve swict to make pressure again. any local guy an fix that one. theyre are kits called hard start kits that they hook up to them that shoot an extra zap of jiuse in it to try to free it up if its not totally lockd up being though that you still hear the relays pulling in and out thats good you may have just caught it in time.

now here is a quick test and possible cure but only if you what your doing turn both units off take off the top cover of the old rudd and get a small hammer not a sledgehammer and rap and tap all around the reversing valve. it will be a cylindrical tube black usually have sets of copper or brass tubings going in the 2 sides of this so dont hit itthat hard it gets dents it and is ruined. look for oil spots which uually means the refrigerant leaked out , and its seized up for good. they try spinning around the big out door fan door fan some. you may have to rock it back and forth Till it braks lose but dont put super human efort int it,

than put it all bak together making sure you connected wires back up right. go in and have you wife eithe watch it or you do it and switch the breker on and off about 8 times to trying to get the cnnectors switches to stay in and if your brave take a well insulated screw driver and hold them in for 2-4 miuntes to force it to work. if that doesnt do it call your local repairman and tell him you need a hard startkit only much safer, the cost about 40$ but you labor will be high if he is sent alone so may you can help im out and lessen your bill if the valve cant be made to work again. you may want start looking for prices with that model and serial number and d shut that electric heater off some one to replace it . I hope I helped you out some no charge ( I dont have my Pay Pal acct. set up yet ) good luck tom.

Yes the heat could be running at the same time the cooling is on.
Take a Amp meter and read your amp draw on the air handler wiring while running.Any reading above 2.5 amps should be checked out.that is 2 point 5.

You may have cottonwood on your compressor. Before you spend any money, do two things. Rinse off your compressor to clear any cottonwood, and check your filters, they may need to be replaced. Hope that helps!

I have a coleman heat pump that is about 22 years old and never had a problem. but now my heat strips at times, start to operate at the same time the unit is cooling. thinks for any help


I would check the control wiring. At some point two bear wires are touching. When the cooling mode is energized it is causing the heat relay to also pull in. Check for visible damage to insulation at any point where two wires can make contact with each other.
