Heat pump that just blows cool air

I have a Janitrol A24-05 Heat Pump with a Honeywell T8085D thermostat. When I set the thermostat to turn the heat on all I get is cold air blowing. Any ideas?

    I'm hoping it's the condensing unit circuit breaker since that would be simple. Where do I look for it?

    The outside temperature is in the 40s and there is no back up. Where would I look for the condenser unit circuit breaker?

    When I turned up the thermostat yesterday the pump screeched and finished with a bang. Now there's no heat coming through the vents just air from the circulating fan. Emergency heat on now and running.

Is the condenser operating? what is the outdoor temperature? A heat pump is a cooling system with a reverse gear, most reversing valves which make this possible fail to the heat mode so it is not likely to be the problem. You should have either gas or electric back-up heat. If you switch to emergency heat do you get warm air? Really need to find out more to make an informed guess at your problem, the simple stupid would be is the circuit breaker to the condensing unit possibly tripped or shut off?

    sorry for the delay, condenser circuit breaker should be in your main electrical supply panel, there can also be a fused or circuit breaker type service disconnect outdoors by the condenser, should be a gray box with a door,.

My Honeywell thermostat isnt keeping my house cool even though the temp is set to 69. Currently 90 degrees in here


Its probably not the thermostat. The air conditioner may be stuck on heating mode. If its a reverse cycle, the reversing valve may be jammed so even when the thermostat is calling for cold air, it stays on heat. If the machine is on heating mode, it should be blowing cold air out of the outdoor unit of the air con. If its on cooling mode, the outdoor should be blowing hot air.

Honeywell thermostat blows cold air on heat


Thermostats don't actually blow anything, the heating system might though. Check the breakers for your heat system, then call a heating specialist. They're really not that expensive.

How do I replace an old White Rodgers thermostat with new honeywell TH5220


The Orange wire for the reversing valve and used with a Heat Pump
If you have a heat pump, then yes. If you have a gas furnace then no. If you have a HP and the reversing valve is not connected, then you might just be using the emergency electric heat strips. :-o

Honeywell thermostats keep turning off and on and blowing cold air


Need to know the type of heat you have. If it is an air to air heat pump, with this cold weather, you are not going to get much heat out of it. It will feel cool (a little higher than room temperature). If the temps outside stay below 25 degrees, then switch it to Auxillary (Emergency ) heat.

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.

I install new RTH7500D thermostat Honeywell, when I set for Cool it blowes heat when I set for a Heat nothing works I wire per instruction have two stage system


Hi,
It sounds like the t-stat is programmed for a heat pump or you have a heat pump and the t-stat is programmed for a regular furnace....
Check out the manuals in the tip and go into the installer setup to change the t-stat to the proper programming for your system..

Can somebody help,why is my Central AC blows


Most heat pumps have an auxillary heat. Many are electric auxillary heat with a heat strip in the air handler. A common malfunction is for the electric auxillary heat to operate when the heat pump is set on cool. To confirm this, locate the conductor that runs from the heat sequencer to the connection on the heat strip. You will see this on the top section of the air handler. Use the clamp on part of the amp meter over that wire. If the thermostat is set on cool and the heat strip is drawing amps, it means the heat is coming on while the heat pump is set on cool. There is usually one or two causes for this, either the sequencer is bad or there is low voltage wires usually behind the thermostat or in the air handler closet that are touching that shouldn't be touching.

If this is not the case, if its not a problem of where the heat is coming on with the air conditioner, it could be a case of the reversing valve malfunctioning. The way a heat pump works is it reverses the flow of the refridgerant. For instance, many heat pumps the reversing valve is activated in cool. That would mean that there is a low voltage circuit that activates the reversing valve when the heat pump is in cool. I'm not sure what model/brand your heat pump is, Goodman and Janitrol for instance, the heat pump reversing valve is activated in cool. In any case, if the reversing valve is not operating properly, when the air conditioning is set to cool it will actually be heating. Or you could set it to heat and it may actually be cooling instead of heating. Please check these two items first and if you have any further questions, please let me know. Especially if you know of any additional problems like the evaporater is icing up or if the air handler fan is not operating when it should.

No heating


We had the same problem and then had to pay $60 to have the guys who installed our original system tell us we just had the settings wrong. We thought we had "electric heat/cool", which is what we set the thermostat for. Turns out we have "auxhilary heat pump" or something like that. We don't have gas heat, it's electric, but apparently its not basic "electric heat/cool". So try changing your settings. Good luck!
