Have him trouble shoot the defrost board. Also check the charge of the unit, it may be shutting off from either low pressure or high pressure.

Outside unit runs for about 5 seconds then shuts off for a few seconds. It repeats this cycle.


Put in a 5 minute time delay. It is a two wire device in line with the contactor. Sounds like it is set to 75 turns of at 74 and repeats. The tstat should have a differential of 2 degrees as well.

Armstrong Heat pump Package Unit, Model#1B36DA-9B,


Hi, the outdoor unit will start to freeze when it is cold outside, but also it should go into a defrost mode to melt this ice either by the defrost board or defrost thermostat. You will know as steam will rise like smoke and some folks think it is on fire. If it never goes into defrost, get back to us and we can go through some things to check. Merry Christmas,

Installing 1 1/2 ton Weatherking Heatpump and ADP WAK351807P2 air handler 1 /1/2 with 7.5KW back up heat kit. Can't seem to get the thermostat hooked correctly. I understand the Weather King product...


O energizes the reversing valve when the thermostat is set for COOL. B energizes the reversing valve when the thermostat is set for HEAT.
The O/B is usually a orange or black wire.
You can't hurt anything if you choose O or B incorrectly. Hook one of them up and run the unit. If set for COOL and the unit runs cool inside it is correct. If set for COOL and the unit runs warm inside it is not correct.
If the inside temp is opposite from your setting change the wire to the other terminal.
Remember to disconnect power from the air handler when changing thermostat wires.
The defrost control board on the outside unit should be marked correctly for O or B.
Your thermostat may have a slide switch rather than a separate terminal.

I set the thermostat to 70 degrees but it doesnt cool down to 70, it seems that the temp in the house only rises, instead of cools down.


Setting Unit at 70* ? and not cooler ( dropping temp in the house ) Question ? does temp dop at all, if so the Unit maybe unsized, if the temps are going up then the unit is not working at all - maybe just the fan is running. If this is a split unit ( outside unit / furance). A number of things could cause the same problem - call a sevice company. it could be anything -from a Breaker to an electrical part, split Units have to different breakers ( fuse) . Check that first

UNIT NOT BLOWING WARM AIR-OR REACHING DESIRED TEMP


I assume this is a heat pump. The outside unit may be icing up. It should have a defrost cycle with electronic control that sometimes fails or sensor associated with the electronic determination of when to defrost may have failed or may not be sensing because its out of position. You can check for a defrost problem. If frost is blocking the outside unit air will not pass through it after the frost builds up and you may be able to see the white frost as well. If all this is true you need to get a service manual and use its procedures to find out why the unit is not defrosting.

Ac/heating unit not working properly. If the temp outside drops to around 40 degrees the unit will shut off and not come back on until temp outside rises to above 60


Check your filters, make sure they are not dirty. Make sure your outdoor sensor is working properly. If it is then check the setting on the defrost timer. If you don't know how, you'll have to call an expert to come fix it. Diagnostic fees generally are around 65 to 125 depending on time and contractor.

Heat Pump Stops Working only in the Early Morning


When the unit does what you say does the fan motor outside stop also , if it does that means it is in defrost mode and should kick back over to normal after the system heats up the coil enough
