If it shuts down completely, it is probably a safety device. Doubt if it's the t'stat. This sounds like something is overheating and the safety is shutting down the unit. The safety could be the fan delay/limit switch. Also, there are usually several "Thermal Disc" type safety devices located near and around the heat exchanger. These can go bad. In other words, they can "Trip" at a temperature lower than the rated temp the devices is supposed to trip.
I would look here for you problem. Good Luck

Why does my PTHP. shut off and switch to electric resistance heat?


im guessing its there way of defrosting the coils , as with this type (small) its tough to defrost the coils in an efficient way , hp runs normal to within one or two degrees of setpoint , hp shuts off or reverses in low speed , back up heat comes on to complete the room heat and to generate the heat needed to defrost the coils , entire unit shuts off when set point is reached , reversing valves set for heat and wait till next cycle

now mine does something slightly different : it runs for fifteen minutes and if set point is not reached it switches to back up and reverses the coils ,leaves compressor on (low speed) , this heats the coils up and defrosts the outdoor unit , and if it runs long enough twenty minutes total time , it goes back to normal and aux heat shuts off . this drives me insane thinking how much im spending on heating the outside !! but im sure its needed to prevent ice build up on outdoor coils ,and I sure don't want that cracking with ice formations

Some of these units have had trouble with the motors and this is what causes them to shut off. NuTone has been pretty good about replacing them under warranty. 1-888-336-6151.

F9 reset, no heat and door wont lock for cleaning. no heat for regular oven either


Hi. The unit is programmed to not operate,or heat, when there is a serious fault within the door latch assembly. This F-9 code, represents a failed door latch assembly. This device must be replaced. Once replaced, the unit will operate correctly.

NOTE_ Try to reset the mechanism. This can be done by shutting down the power, or unplugging for five minutes. Once the five minutes have passed, simply, re-introduce power to the unit, and observe. if the error code returns, replace the door latch assembly.

The heater starts up but then heat shuts off within a couple minutes


i would look a a high limit problem.check for obstruction between heat exchanger and top of unit or plugged heat exchanger.remove top and look straight down and you should see burner flames between heat exch fins. depending on which ignition you have,could also be flame sensor problem.ususally with flame sensor problem burner shuts off within 20 seconds.hope this helps.

Unit starts and stops to often


No this is not normal. You have a problem refered to as "short cycling". This is an indication of low refrigerant charge. You need to have the unit leak checked, repaired and recharged,

Cooling problem with my ac.


The start capacitor may be the problem. Is your AC a central unit or window unit? Whats the model and make? If a window unit it could also be the thermostat is defective or too close to evaporator fins. Dirt on the condenser outside can cause the motor to heat up to the point it shuts down to cool the internal overload. Let me Know, Sea Breeze

Change your heating delay to shut off sooner, you can find this in the installation manual. Also the Thermostat may have delay after heat as well. It is true there could be many variables, but it also sounds like the Heatpump is not charged properly, you will have to have a different tech come out and check that. No need to have the installer mess your system up any further. This solution will only correct the auxilary heat, your heat pump on the other hand will require expert skills.
