Sounds like the reverse valve is bad. This would have to be replaced by a technician.

Heat Pump comes on, fans slow down, switches off?


Sounds like a bad temp sensor or switch. Like in cars my guess is that the switch is failing to work causing the fans to stop despite the pump getting hot.

Sounds like you have a heatpump. Is that correct? When it gets under 35F or so the heatpump just isn't able to keep up with the heat demand and will require help from a backup source such as electric strip heaters. The way the thermostat works is that the heatpump will work until room temperature gets 2F to 4F below what you have the thermostat set for, the Auxillary heat will kick in to help out. I think I am answering your question, please let me know if I have misread your problem and I'll try to come up with something else.

Heatpump A/C not working


First,Turn on the heat cycle (Not Emergency)and see if the outside unit come on,If not,and you don't have low voltage outside,Go to the inside unit and test the transformer,If you have low voltage from the transformer but not outside,It is the low voltage wires,If you don't have low voltage from the transformer,It's the transformer.If you have low voltage outside when in heat mode,but the unit won't come on,It's the contactor.Let me know if you need more help.

Thermostat show AUX HEAT


A heatpump has two sources of heat. One is when the heatpump is operating in normal heat mode, and the other is typically electric heat strips.

The strips come on when the unit is going into defrost, when the unit is not able to keep up with the demand for heat (really cold temps) and when the unit is not working properly.

Whne the strips are on, the T-stat displays "aux-heat" to indicate the strips are in operation.

If the strips are working properly you should have warmer air than with the HP alone. Try switchin it from "heat" to "emergency heat" and see what it will do.

When the HP is not able to keep up with the demand for heat then the heat strips come on, but they typically come on only when the room temp has gotten well below the thermostat setting.

In that situation it would be normal to see indoor temps at 63 degrees when the T-stat is set on 70.

But when you set it to E-heat it bypasses the heatpump operation and goes directly to the heat strips. If they are working properly it should maintain an accurate temp in the home.

Goodman heatpump. Crazy pressure in heat mode


Check the TXV valve on the outdoor unit, it could be stuck closed. We have been experiencing the same problems with the 410 systems and the TXV was the culprit. Good Luck

If your Heatpump's fan isn't running but your compressor is, your fan motor is out. If nothings happening at all ensure your getting power to heatpump (ex: breaker tripped, fuses blown on outside power switch, or fuses blown in breaker box?)

Low heat


if this is a heat pump it should either be low on freon or problem with airflow over outdoorcoil. (like a fan that failed or really dirty coil) PLEASE keep in mind if this is your first year with a heatpump instead of a furnace it does blow air out MUCH colder than a gas furnace or boiler.
Thanks ,
