New heat strip does not come on with themo in heat position.


you cant use that thermostat for a heat strip,your thermostat only gives 9 volts to tell the heat pump to come on,a heat strip needs 220 volts to run,DO NOT PLAY WITH ELECTRIC HEATERS!!you do not know what you are doing and can burn your house down or hurt someone!!

I would like to know how to replace the heat strips in an Amana GPH1330M41 unit


Buy a heat kit from a Goodman dealer. Check that your existing wire will carry the amp load.

Heat pump i dont know the model


The "R" terminal on the back of the stat should be 24 volt supply to the stat. For a heat pump, when the stat calls for heat, the "W" terminal goes hot (24 V) and should actuate the reversing valve and start the outside unit for heat. when the stat calls for cooling, The "Y" terminal goes hot and starts the outside unit without the reversing valve. The heat strip is used to temper the air while the outside coil is defrosting when in heating. You need an OHM meter to test for a short in the heat strip. A lot of installers are wiring it to heat all the time when in the heating mode if the heat output is too low on really cold days. Try jumping "R" to "Y" and the outside unit should start. Disconnect the heat strip from power while testing. This is really brief, its a big subject. Good luck.

The divider that seperates the freezer from the fridge get hot to the touch, heats up the fridge door gasket


Hi, Welcome to FixYa.

I`ll start by letting you know first the heat between the doors is normal...to a degree, and done by design to help prevent moisture along the "breaker strip"/divider.

If all else appears fine, temp. Ok, fans running, no significant frost build up on freezer back wall, it's likely nothing to be concerned about.

**Just be sure the condensor fan isn't jammed and still turning.** The fan at the back next to the compressor.

The amount of heat can be determined by several factor's such as,

1) temperature setting - lower ( colder ) the temperature is set the more the run time the hotter the strip.

2) The ambient temperature - hotter the environment the more the unit runs to compensate, hence the hotter the strip.

3) The amount of "fresh" content added to the unit ( especially freezer section if unfrozen items added ) - new items add a lot of warmth thus demanding the unit to run more to remove this heat (btu`s or british thermal unit`s )causing the strip to be hotter.

4) Build up of dust & dirt on the condensor coils - this also causes the unit to run excessively which in turn makes for more heat on this strip.

These are all things which can and do determine the amount of heat between the doors.
Another factor to always consider is of course If it is hot where you live the unit may just be running more to compensate as with other factors I mentioned.

Hope this answer's your question and let me know if I can assist you further. Thank's for coming to "fixya" and good luck moving forward.

I have a Goodman phk 024-1 unit that will not heat.


Basically, set unit to call for the heat strips to be energized. There should be a control that sends power to the heat strips. Usually a contactor or relay. Verify that power passes thru this device to the heat strips. Make sure that the correct voltage is being delivered to the heat strips. If correct voltage is present at the terminals of the heat strip, check the amps. If no amps, heat strip is probably broken. Don't forget that some of these units have sequencers that "Stage" the energizing of the strips. And all of them should have some safety device such as a fuse or thermal overload or some other device that stops voltage should there be a malfunction.
Hope this helps.

I have a westinghouse window unit and I think it has heat strips for the heat. How do I tell if it is a true heat pump or if it has heat strips and how do I get to the Heat strips in the unit to check.


If it is a heat pump, the compressor will be running both in cool mode and in normal heat mode.

Confirm the current indoor temperature. Turn the thermostat up one degree at a time until it comes on. This will typically be 1 to 4 degrees increase. As soon as it comes on stop increasing the temp.

If the compressor is running, it is a heat pump.

Check the temperature coming our of the vents at that time. You should have 30 to 60 degrees increase from the air temp going into the unit and the conditioned air temp coming out.

Then turn the T-stat up another 10 degrees. If the temp coming out of the vents increases by 20 degrees or more. the strips are on.

The strips operate in three situations.
1) the system is set to emergency heat
2) The heat pump cannot keep up with the demand for heat. (because its too cold outside, the desired temp setting is greater than 4 to 8 degrees above the room temp, or the HP is malfunctioning.)
3) The HP is in defrost mode

You could also take the panels off the unit and look for a reversing valve, but unless you know what you are looking for you will not recognise it.

When I turn the air on the heat strips comes on at the same time


Is this a central heat? From the size i assume it is.
You say air conditioning on part of your question then use heat pump on another part. So it is important for us both be on the same page.
With all due respect some people think they have a heat pump and it is just AC and electric heat also but is not a heat pump.
. If you have the outdoor AC unit running with your thermostat set for heat and the air coming off the out door unit is cold, or you see it "steam up outdoors" off the out door unit at times (we call this mode defrost).

If you actually have a Heat pump system some times it is wired to have the strips come on at the same time the heat pump comes on especially if you experience a lot of weather below 40' occasionally and have an emergency heat setting on your thermostat you most likely have a heat pump.

If you have a heat pump for sure now the heaters can come on with the outdoor section if
1 they are wired to do so or
2 the thermostat has 2 stage heating and the second stage is telling the elements to come on, or
3 the outdoor thermostat (if so equipped) is telling the elements to come on.
Any 1 or combination of these 3 items can cause the elements to come on wit the out door unit.

Electric heat strip installation and wiring


Need to make sure your wire size to the inside unit is large enough to handle the amperage, that you have a two stage heat thermostat.
