    When I switch from Auto to on the fan does not start, When I cycle past the set temp as if I were trying to manually start it, it clicks but not fan nor air or heat.

    Can you turn the fan of from the thermostat by going from auto to on? Also is it a hot surface igniter or does it have a pilot light?

Ok sounds like your transformer is not working. Now as long as no one has removed the doors to the furnace cabinet and they are in place just like the are suppose to be, because there is a door switch that turns off the power to the whole unit until the door is in place correctly. Find the circuit board and look to see it you have a fuse on the board it will look like a car fuse the spade type they are 5 amp fuses. If it is good find the transformer and replace it. If you feel comfortable around electricity there are two sides to the transformer line voltage which is 120 and the secondary side which is 24 volts. If you have a volt ohm meter ohm out the transformer each side line side and low voltage side. An open on either side will be noticed and then replace the transformer. I know this is alot of things to check but just elimanating everything it could be before condemming the transformer. Turn the main breaker off and replace.

    One more thing if you can't find a fuse then the board doesn't have one.

    When you changed the fuse look in your manual and make sure what the fuse size is. If you took out a 3 amp go back in with same size. It protects the board.

My amana ptac is not heating....the code "np" is displayed....how do I correct this...we just installed the unit and know little about operation. Thanks


I don't see this error code in the manual. I do see nP as an error code for Window Switch lockout. I just had this happen to me and they had me reset the control board.

Remove case, flick master switch to OFF for 10 seconds. Press Heat/Cool same time turn switch back on HOLD until off light comes on.

You should be fixed. Just had to do this for my unit. I was playing around with the settings and turned on the window switch option by accident.

Hello
There could be a few problems.First the compressor is heating up and causing it to pull high amps and triping the breaker.THis could be caused by low freon or low oil.
Possibly a restriction in the freon lines to and from the unit.These are some things a repairman should be looking for.

You can clean the outside unit,fins and coils with a degreaser and a water hose and see if this helps.

I have the same problem, and I found the manual reset inside the unit. Turn the power off, and unplug the unit. Remove the outer cover of the unit ( inside cover ) , and remove the 2 screws holding the " wire mesh " in the front of the cover. Pull the wire mesh up and out of the way, then carefully pull out the heating element.

My reset was on the upper left connection of the wires... just looks like a small push button, but the reset is recessed a bit.
Replace all covers and plug back in.. working fine..

If it does not have a furnace or heating elements for heating, then it is a heat pump, which is rare for a central AC system, but makes sense of the fact that it blows warm air when you reset the pressure switch, which may indicates freon pressure charge problem if your AC system has a reverse valve and uses freon to for heating (heat Pump).

Do you get heating when outside unit runs? if you do, check freon pressure levels and top up to required pressures. The button you depress is a pressure reset switch ... that is if your AC system is a heat pump ... which, as pointed above, it is not common for central ACs.

Amana air and heating unit model # ptc153b50am w/ power cor 37470


Sounds as though the power cord reset switch might be bad and need to be replaced. If not, then there is a short somewhere in the system. Do an ohms test on the switch to determine if it is bad.

Amana PTAC PTC093A35AA won't blow heat


The reset button is located behing a panel on the front of the unit that is labeled Heat Reset. If that label is gone then look around, it is a small hole, small enough for a paper clip to fit through.
That being said, I have 137 of these units in one of my hotels and have not had a single one needing to be reset. You probably are going to need a new control board kit. These can be purchased from Amana. They are $130. Make sure that you have pulled the heater coil out and inspected it first. Also, there was a recall years ago where Amana was supposed to contact and send out new voltage switches. These are the round black things that the Brown heater wires connect to on the upper and lower side of the heating coil. You should also try to replace those if you find the coil in good condition. I have had those resolve heating issues. Most of the heating issues were a result of a bad relay on the control board though.
Please remember to rate this fix.

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.
