Question about Amana PTH123B25AJ Heat Pump Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Goes to 60 degrees

Amana heat pump resets to 60 degrees even after thermostat is set at 72 degrees and programmed. Bought new thermostat thinking it was that and programed turned on but heat pump still goes back to 60 degrees? So is this a easy fix? I'm trying to help a friend, all he knew it was a Amana and it's snowing outside and cold so he did not have the model number.
Thanks for your help

Providing its a 24V controll circuit, any heat pump thermostat would do the trick. The real trick is finding one that goes down to 8 degrees. Make sure the range goes down that low, and that it's a heat pump thermostat. A lot of Honeywell thermostats work on both conventional, and heat pump systems. You'll have to read thru the installation instructions to program it from the default conventional setting, to a heat pump setting. The manuals are quite user friendly with pictures and everything! Good luck!

We have a new a/c and the system has heat strips. For a/c. we have had the thermostat set on AC at 72degrees. Now that it is getting colder and may need some heat in the house, do we switch the...


If your thermostat has an emergency heat setting this means you have a heat pump system.
Yes you need to set the thermostat to heat for heating the house.
The emergency heat setting should never be used unless your outside unit is not functioning.
The emergency heat setting overides the heat pump (the outside unit will not be energized).
The emergency heat setting will run the auxillary heat (heat strips) only.
When the thermostat is set in the heat position the heat pump will run to heat your house.
If the heat pump can't keep up (extreme cold) then then the auxillary heat will kick in to augment the heat pump until it satisfies the thermostat settings. If your room temperature gets 2 degrees below your thermostat setpoint, your auxillary heat will kick on. Example, say you are going to be gone a couple of days and you turn your heat down to 60 degrees. When you return and it is 60 degrees in your house, you turn the thermostat up to 70 degrees. Since you are turning the temperature up 2 degrees or more (10 degrees in this case) from the 60 degree room temperature then the heat pump will come on and the auxillary heat strips. The unit will continue heating like this until the temperature in the house gets to 69 degrees and the heat strips will turn off and the heat pump will continue to run until the 70 degree setpoint is reached.
Hope this helps.

Where is the reset button on an Amana ASZ14 unit?


I don't think the Amana ASZ14 Heat Pump has a reset switch, but you can still reset it by resetting the power (when it's not running... turn your thermostat OFF first).

To reset the power, locate your circuit breaker box. There should be a double-breaker for the Heat Pump and another double-breaker for the Air Handler. Turn them both off for at least 2-3 minutes. Then flip them back on and turn your thermostat back ON.

You're thermostat may also have a RESET button that you can push. I have to reset mine every time I change the batteries in it.

On and off is determined by what temperature you set each program for. Example: 6 am - 70 degrees, 8 am - 65 degree, 4 pm - 72 degrees, 11 pm - 65 degrees. You can set the thermostat to fit your schedule and temperature preferences.  Good luck.

If you still have the instructions for the thermostat, then it will show you how to get into the menu and set the swing on the temps. I would try to explain off the top of my head, but its actually quite a bit off numbers to remember. Hope it helps somehow.

No Auxiliaty heat with new thermostat


The Vision Pro is a great t-stat and I have installed many of them with great results. I am wondering though if it is set up correctly. Did you go in and make sure that it is set for heat pump and for 2 stage heating? Look on the instructions how to get into the advance installer options. Go through that meanu and make sure that everything ig set correctly for your type of heating system and that it is set for 2 stage heating. From what you have here and I can tell the wiring should be okay that is why I think that it is in the t-stat programming.

Honeywell RTH230B a/c problem


if you set the thermostat on 70 and your house won't get ant cooler than 72, there is a problem with your system,not your stat. I'm thinking you are low on refrigerant if it is somewhat working. when the unit is running, if you can get your hand on the larger refrigerant line under the black insulation, it should be cold, about 55 degrees.

Thermostat temperatures not reaching preset Energy Star settings


Well with a boiler system like you have it will cost you more money to heat your house that way than if you leave it like it is. With a boiler system it takes a lot longer to heat an area than with a furnace. The best thing you can do is find a happy medium and leave it there at all times. If you read the paper work on your new thermostats they have a set procedure which tells the thermostat if you have forced air or boiler system. Do you have baseboard or in-floor heat how many zones do you have.
