My first thought is, if you have to ask this question, you should not be playing with your HVAC because you will likely hurt yourself. But if you insist; What does the humidifier require 120 or 24V? If it is 24V, then you take it after the thermostat at the relay that turns on the rest of the system. If the humidifier wants 120V, take it from the switched portion of the above mentioned relay. Your heat pump is 240V, so one side of the humidifier goes to the relay, the other side goes to ground, not the other side of the 240V return. If your heat pump is connected through a GFI, this will likely trip the GFI, shutting down your heat pump.

Go to page 12. 24V should be terminal 6 and A on the relay. 120V should be between B and ground on the fan motor. Before opening anything, turn all the breakers to the heat pump, likely 3 dual gang breakers. Have a couple spare automotive ATO 5A fuzes in case you blow one. Have an shut-off valve for the water supply. Please be careful!!! What you are doing has a high potential of hurting yourself or blowing up something in your heat pump, leaving you without heat.

SOURCE: Amana HTM (heat transfer module) system

I would check the house thermostat(and its wiring to the indoor unit), and if it's OK then check the heat transfer fluid diverter valve inside the indoor unit (should be sending the hot fluid through the big radiator (air exchanger)) until the surface temperature of the radiator is approximately 130 degrees F, then the fan control operates and the fan starts to blow hot air through your ductwork. My HTM is 26 years old and I've had many opportunities to "hone" its operation...

This is no doubt due to failure of the "hot surface ignitor". This device lights the main burners for your furnace, and they fail a lot. I strongly recommend the replacement should be done by a technician.

SOURCE: Electric furnace blows cold air before and after warm air.

It is normal. Your house has to go down a couple more degrees because the heat pump is not working. You can solve this by rewirng you thermostat. Take off the wire that goes to Y and tape off. Then take the wires that are marked w and e or w1 and put the wires to yellow. Do not run ac with it wired like this. If you need more information please post me back

SOURCE: Goodman Air Handler motor will not turn off.

Look at your Thermostat wiring.
If there is a green wire going to the "G" terminal, disconnect it.

If it stops running, you have a bad T-stat.

If it keeps running, you either have a stuck fan relay or a low voltage control wiring malfunction.
Those are usually related to one of the safety switches having problems.

If green is not going to G, let me know, and we will determine which one is indeed the fan wire and go from there.

Remember, when you rate the solution, it closes further dialog, so only rate when you are satisfied with the discusion.

Thanks for visiting FIXYA!

Hello, it's kinda diffucult to tell where the water is coming from without actually seeing it, but since you say it is coming from the bottum of the furnace it might be that the condensate pump might be clogged up or one of the hoses could be leaking that leads into the condensate pump. One other thing to check would be the humidifier, somtimes they can either leak from the drain line or the humidifier itself, check these areas out and and ask me further questions if needed.

The terminals on the control board are designed to provide power to the controls of the humidifier, not run directly to the solenoid. If you don't want to install the controls, you can run the 24 volt signal from the furnace heat signal (W1/W2) through the humidistat to the solonoid. This will allow 24 vac to get to the solenoid only when the furnace is running. I do this on most humidifiers that I install.

You need 24 volts going to the coil of the contactor. If you do not have 24 volts, you will need to trace the wiring back to see where you are losing it from. Try placing your voltmeter at C & Y coming from your air handler. If not, go to your air handler and test for 24 volts ac at C & Y coming from your thermostat. If you do not have 24 volts coming from your thermostat, there is either a problem with the thermostat or there is a problem with the wiring between the thermostat and the air handler. If you have 24 volts at the air handler coming from the thermostat but you do not have 24 volts at the outdoor unit coming from the air handler, then you have a problem with the wires between the air handler and the outdoor unit.

I hope you find this information to be very helpful to you moving forward. Please leave a rating. :-)

Please note. Not all installers use the proper color codes when they install or replace equipment. It may be necessary go go to the furnace or outdoor unit to verify what wires are for what purpose. Also be sure there are no splices in the wire that could change the wire colors between components.
  • R (red) or Rh (Red heat) 24 volts from equipment.
  • Rc (Red cooling) 24 volts from transformer in cooling equipment.
Note: If only furnace has a transformer and cooling equipment does not jumper Rc and Rh.
  • W (White) sends 24 volts to furnace control to start the heating cycle.
  • W2 (no standardized wire color, usually whatever wire color is available) controls second stage heat.
Note: W2 is most often used for heat pumps to control what is called emegency heat or Auxillary heat, and most often will use the white wire.
  • Y (yellow) often (blue) is used, controls cooling unit (outdoor condensing unit) also is used for heat pump heat.
  • Y2 (no standardized wire color, usually whatever wire color is available) controls second stage cooling.
  • G (Green) controls the fan "on" operation of the furnace/air handler. Also often is used to start the blower for many electric furnaces.
  • C (common) most often brown but can also be black or other color available to installer.
  • O (orange) Energizes heat pump reversing valve for cooling (Trane and most other brands).
  • B (Blue) Energizes heat pump reversing valve for heating (Rheem, Ruud and Weatherking).
