    Thanks for responding to my problem. I did read that in the manuals, and it is supposed to have a electric heater that kicks in when it is to cold. The heat coming from this source just doesn’t seem to be much warmer then surrounding air. It is warm compared to just the Fan though. But how can I check that it is as hot as it can get?

You didn't say what zone you're in but if you're north of southwest missouri you can forget about anything seeming warm below 30 degrees outside i tell all my customers to switch to emergency heat when temp's get below 25 for extended periods of time 2 days - weeks. either way you're at the mercy of the utility company on emergency heat you get hot heat and faster results heat pumps out of the box can only give you what they can generater from outside temperatures 35-55 they work great giving better than 3 to 1 but that falls off drastically when the temperature plunges

Were dose the green wire go to my senville 18000 heat pump indoor unit

The green thermostat wire goes to the G on the terminal strip. If it's not a thermostat wire it is a ground wire Should be grounded to the metal case for safety. It does not affect the operation.

I have an amana heat pump a/c PTAC unit 14700 btu and it seems the compressor is not engaging or blowing cold air

could be a bad run capacitor or the unit needs to be cleaned take it outside and wash the condenser coil the outside coil and the evap coil on the inside be careful not to get the electric circuits inside the unit wet. I would wash the coils first and then see if it cools. Hope this helps

Heat Pump - blows heat to set temp, then off, then kicks on to blow cold

Heat pumps defrost which is the AC mode, if the heat strip isnt working during a defrost, the air will be cold, A heat pump only feels warm if the heat strips are on too! the refrigeration cycles heat output is much less sensible to our 98F skin. heat pumps that satisfy a room setpoint are working at least, all heat pumps feel drafty to most.

Window air conditioner cools (very icy cool air) for a minute or two then switches to fan. Will then stay on fan for about 10 minutes and then once again get "very cold", but only for a minute or two

Before I even read that far into your post, I was thinking "thermostat" replace it...It seems to be failing badly. If you take it into logical perspective...normally the unit gets turned on, then takes a bit to get cold, then once it reaches its pre-determined temperature, turns the unit either "off" or just blows the kicking off the compressor. This unit you have is getting this cycle done within 5 minutes instead of a few hours...replace the thermo and you should be fine. Now if you could post the exact model number here I can go look up the part for you.

Is it normal operation for these units to EVER blow out cold air or "nonheated" air when unit is in heat mode?

Yes. Heat pumps have to go into defrost just like a freezer when the temp gets too cold outside. The heat pump will temper the indoor air electric heat.

The last couple of days our heat pump will not cool below 80 degrees even if we set the temp to 65. The unit keeps running. last week the heat pump worked very well. The unit is 10 years old.

Check the outside unit. Feel the larger line to see if it is cold. Is the condensor dirty. If you have a way to measure temp. Take the return air at the filer and the closest grille temp and subtract. It should be between 19 to 23 degress. If not you have a problem. Could be refrigerant or some other problem. Either way you need to get it checked out by a service tech. Ask for free estimate that way you are going to know how much it cost before hand. Rus
