SOURCE: Problem with GE Zoneline 5200 model

Heat pumps have saftey circuits that prevent liquid flooding of the compressor. Inadequate airflow across the evaporator in cooling can trip this circuit. Have your package unit serviced with particular attention to cleaning the evaporator coil and be sure your filters are clean and changed frequently in the summer months. Hope this helps GL!

SOURCE: Soleus MA-9000AH blows hot air

Sounds like the compressor is not running. This model had lots of problems with over heating. It also will never really blow more than a moderate cooling through it. Since you have cleaned all the filters and is still 100 deg, I believe the failure will be the compressor itself or the capacitor.

If you find an oily residue in the drain or on the pipes, it may have simply leaked the refrigerant out. Good Luck!

SOURCE: Goodman with 2 thermostats, freezes in summer, no heat in winter

is the system zoned? if so maybe the zoning control board to the damper motor is wired improperly. when a system freezez its because of 1- restricted air flow across coil, (maybe dirty filter) or 2-low refrigerant charge. again could depend on how its zoned.

Your outdoor condenser is in heat mode. Check the wires on the thermostat. Sounds like a small wiring problem and nothing else. Good luck. Please keep me posted as to you progress.

Using as heater and unit is blowing cold air


A heat pump is an air conditioner that reverses its refrigerant flow. In the cooling mode, the evaporator is cold to the room and its condenser is hot. In the heating mode, a valve reverses the refrigerant flow and makes the evaporator warm and the condenser cold.

Using heater...cold air out of the back


With heat pumps that's the way they work. In heat mode they are using the evaporator as the condenser and it blows heat out the front and cold out the back. In cooling mode, a reversing valve switches the gas flow reversing the operation of the coils and it blows cold out the front and heat out the back.

SOLEUS KFHHP-22 - Heater doesn't blow air at all, warm or cold. Cooling works great but no heat.


Doesn't matter how hot it was when installed, there still should have been proper start up performed. That means running unit thru all cycles and checking charge. If it was installed this summer then installer should warranty service to return and complete install properly.

Have a Soleus LX-140 portable air conditioner. Water was leaking out the right side of the machine. Opened the casing and found a clear hose, one end attached to the plastic tray above the condenser and...


I have an LX-100, and had the same problem, so I am guessing that the designs are similar. There should be a pump in the condensate pan at the bottom of the unit -- on mine, it was near the front, right next to the overflow float switch. There should be an outlet on top of the pump, which is where the hose needs to be attached.

It looks like the pump pushes condensate up into that plastic tray, which lets if flow over the heat exchanger, both cooling it and evaporating the water. With the hose detached, you're probably noticing degraded cooling performance and a lot more condensate in the holding tank than there should be. At least, that was the case for me. Good luck.

UNIT WILL RUN FOR 15 MIN WITHOUT PROBLEMS THEN THE DISPLAY WILL GO BLANK AND UNIT WILL THEN BLOW OUT WARM AIR.


Check the condenser coil blower wheel. Soleus Air units use a cheap plastic wheel that comes apart after the warranty period. The condenser coil is the backside coil that is rejecting heat through the exhaust when unit is cooling.
The display going blank is a symptom of unit overheating, it's can't exhaust the heat buildup at the condenser, therefore the cabinet overheats.
If you find the blower wheel in pieces, I have a parts source for you:

Soleus 14000 btu air 12000 btu heat


Hi
Your text "will not blow out" indicates lack of air flow.
There are two posiblilities:
The upper blower wheel has failed (evaporator coil) OR the lower blower wheel has disintegrated (condenser coil in cooling mode) - which is very common on this Soleus Air model. The blower motors are very good and rarely fail.
Unplug from outlet, remove the six phillips head screws which secure the back to front of the appliance. Look for many broken pieces of your blower wheel.The proceed to www.soleusparts.com and order a blower wheel replacement kit(s).
Problem solved!

Fan freezes up with ice in winter


They need air, do not cover it when in use.

If ti cools fine in summer then you just have a defrost problem.

Make sure the outdoor coil is clean.
If the coils are clean, then you have a bad defrost control.

In heat mode the unit should go into a timed or temp controlled defrost. If it is frosting up to the point of stopping the fan, in heat mode only, and otherwise operates properly, then its a bad defrost control.

It is reccomended that the defrost temp sensor be replaced at the same time the defrost control board is replaced. Some temp sensors are part of the board and not a seperate component, but not most.

Soleus air heat pump soleus lx 140 quit working


Hi
The Soleus Air condenser blower wheel is all plastic and I have seen many of them disintegrate from normal residential use. It's just a weak part.
Go to shop.soleusparts.com and buy a metal blower wheel replacement kit. Problem solved!
