On the heating element [behind the coil, (the springy thing)], at the top end of the element, there is a little thermistor I think it is called. You will have to remove the fan shroud. With the power off, check for continuity if you have a multimeter. If that is the problem (no continuity), you can pick one up at al local heating supply. Just have it soldered back in and reconnect. If the thermistor 's continuity is okay, remove the main board under the control knobs. I have seen these boards burn in the back where the relays are soldered on. If you're really good with a solder you can try to re-solder it. If not, it's about as cheap to buy a new unit as it is to buy the board. Good luck.

The problem sounds like 1 or 2 things either you have a bad sequencer for the heat strip or the emergency heat portion was not wired up.

How old is the unit? Heat pumps don't work when it's real cold, you know it's limits. If it's not real cold outside, then it may be low on gas or such and need a service call.

I have a 5 ton goodmsn heat pump it only blows cold air the heat doesnt come on have a new heat strip in it but still blows cod air


Heat pumps require a reversing valve for heat operation on the outdoor section, a control signal to a "O" terminal or orange wire is required for heating and cooling depending on the thermostat and out door unit requirements. The thermostat also has to be heat pump type for the system to operate heat for electric system with heat strip, two stage electric heating.

Its 28 degrees out side and my goodman 3.5 ton heat pump package unit is blowing cold air out of all my regesters


Sounds like the heat pump is not running. Check outside to see if the fan is spinning.

Try moving the thermostat to emergency heat and see if that gives you any heat. If it does, then you have heat until you can get a service technician to locate the problem with the heat pump. It could be a wide range if issues from bad thermostat to bad wiring to bad capacitor.

Than the reverseing valve is not changing over swict to emergency or aux heat. then the wireing outside needs to be checked to make sure orange goes from O @ stat to the outside.

My heat pump is shot and is operating off the emergency heat. Can I just continue to use it this way or do I have to replace the heat pump?


You mean you are using the Emergency heat setting instead of the heat pump????...You're using Natural gas only now tn emergency heat????That's fine...I wouldn't replace a heat pump if you have Natural gas....it's too expensive compared to Gas....you may be able to still use the heat pump as an Air Conditioner only , it depends on what's wrong with it...otherwise you will have to get a Central Air unit instead...cheaper and just use the Gas for heat

My heat pump blows cold air for the first 10 minutes or so


Don't know how long you have had a heat pump but thats the nature of them in colder weather. Some people prefer to switch to "emergency heat" on the t-stat when temps fall below 20 or 25 degrees. This bypasses the heat pump and allows your back-up heat to heat the house. If your house is total electric your emergency heat is an electric furnace and it should handle the load if it was sized properly. Don't leave it on emergency when it warms up because your heat pump is much cheaper to operate than the furnace. As always, check your air filter since it can restrict the amount of air that moves thru the furnace, which is critical. Hope this helps

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

Heat strips not heating


Check your sequencers on your elements. If you don't have the equipment, then all you can do is check your filters and ensure they are clean. Also see if you can set the heat pump at a lower temp, you can do this at the defrost board, the therm or sensor. Get (the heat pump) to heat the house more than the electric before you have a tech come and diagnose your problem.
