Question about Kitchen Appliances - Others
I have a Rheem ''RQPW-B024JK06E BVA'' Heat Pump.
When the outside temp goes below 15F (-10C) the heat pump is not supplying enough heat to warm the interior of the house above 60F (15C) and the aux gas heat is not turning on. Thermostat set to ''Auto''.
The heat pump works continually trying to maintain 68F (20C) but the heat registers are only supplying about 64F (18C).
When Iset the ''(-)HC-TST402DFMS'' thermostat to ''EMERG''ency the heat pump compressor shuts down & the gas now supplies heat to the interior to whatever temp I want (to me this indicates the Gas heater & Gas valve are working OK). What could be causing the unit not to turn on the gas to maintain the req'd temp when in the Auto mode? The unit is only 2 years old & this is the first winter it has been used.

Sounds like you have a problem with your heat pump. Your aux heat is a electric coil. how old is the unit when was the last time it was serviced? How cold is it out side?

The fans are set to delay for 60-90 seconds to remove all heat from the heat exchanger/heater elements.
If the fan runs any longer than 3-4 minutes after the Emergency Heat shuts off, you may have a bad sequencing relay in the air handler.

This sounds like an overload. Space heaters can pull as much as 15 amps on thier own. Some cord heating is normal, but if it gets hot, its overloaded. If it's old as you indicate, your circuits perhaps can't take the extra loading.
Also, never use an extension cord with a space heater.

SOURCE: I have the following home
If your furnace has a filter or fan compartment door, be sure it closed tightly and that the filter is installed correctly - there could be an interlock switch that is preventing the thermostat from operating. Also, if you haven't already turned off the power to the furnace, do that, wait a minute and then turn it back on.
Obviously, make sure the thermostat is on, is set to heat and calling.
