Hello pamandb,
You may not have continuity thru a heating element but you should have some low resistance. If you've got an open in the el;ement itself, then you may have to remove the time to get at it to repair or replace. I have use signal tracers ( generate a sgnal in a wire and can be tracked with a receiver wand ) to track wiring and they cost about $50 - $70 in stores like home depot.. but regardless of where the break is, in order to repair it, you wil have to gain access to it which means removing tile.. Good luck

trace the wiring of the reversing valve.. its an electromagnetic relay in the middle of a cluster of tubing near the compressor. depending on its normal state when un-powered (normal heat or normal cool) the tech may have simply disconnected the relay (normal cool), or connected it directly to the call-for-cool line (typically yellow) (normal heat) regardless of heating or cooling, the compressor always runs the same direction

Gas furnance lights but fan does not come on. buzzing sound from panel near is not jammed it spins freely.unit is seven years old.

Most furnaces equipped with an electronic control board activate the same blower speed for heating and continuous fan. If the cooling speed works, the problem is likely in the circuit board (relay) or wiring to the motor. Check and rectify.

I think that you have the right idea. The wiring is probably wrong. If you can trace the low voltage wires to the air handler. make sure that the Y1 wire on the t-stat is going to Y1 on the hair handler and then to the condenser. The Y2 wire should be going to Y2 on the air handler and probably does not continue out to the condenser. The Y2 should be going to the contacor that brings on your backup heat. It seems like Y1 and Y2 are reversed somewhere.

The timer light flashes twice about every 15 seconds

This may mean that the filters may need to be cleaned. According to service manual the unit has a "Serial reverse transfer
error at start up operation". Call fujitsu for service if the fault cannot be rectified.

Power light is flashing and it isnt working

A multi split system is it? One of the reasons why the light flashes is because one indoor unit is on cool and the other is on heat. Changing the one on cool (or on heat) will fix this. Both indoor units need to operate on the same mode.

You need to make sure that both sides of the heat kit are coming on. One of the heating elements could be bad. Turn the power off and remove the heat kit. Check and see if there are any visible breaks on it. Also, when the unit is running, take a volt meter and check for voltage to the heat kit. You can also do a continuity check to see if the heating elements are good. Good luck.

I need to find a cable break under floor tiles, do bosch produce some sort of device that can detect cable breaks and locate the fault without having to remove all the tiles

There should be a conduit that the cable runs through. If you tie one end of the wires together and ohms out the other end it will tell you if you have an open circuit. If you don't have a conduit, you can find it by some type of metal detector or stud finder.
