SOURCE: heat pump not running

check your house circuit breakers first that should be labeled heatpump or outdoor unit
make sure it is on and or not tripped
then if you have a box outside near the outdoor unit open it up and see if there is a breaker or maybe fuses that could be blown

Air conditioning worked all summer and now heat will not come on and outside unit will not run


Is this a heat pump or straight cool with heat strips. If straight cool the outdoor unit should not run in heat. If heat pump, did it work last year? If it did and now the outdoor unit will not run you likely have a bad control board. Possibly lost your settings in your tstat... check the stat first, make sure its configured for HP

A Great Tip For Saving Money


While everyone usually remembers to change their AC and Heater filters, no one thinks about cleaning the heating or cooling outdoor coil. If you have an outdoor unit for heating or cooling, those coils need to be clean too!!

The principle of an HVAC unit is to remove heat or cold from your home to make sure you have a comfortable temperature inside.

If you have a gas furnace, your good to go in the winter. Make sure you change your filter every month and you should be able to keep your home at an nice temperature for you and your family. BUT, if you have an air conditioning unit hooked up to cool your house in the spring and summer, you need to do a little maintenance every spring to make sure you get the most out of your unit and save money. The same principle works for a heat pump, so i'll break it down for each unit.

1. An air conditioning unit that has a gas heater works just like it sounds. In the winter, your thermostat will tell the heater to turn on. You will have your burner running until the fan switch in the heat exchanger gets to the right temperature to turn the fan on. This is so you don't have cold air circulating through the house. Cooling on the other hand works a little different. If your thermostat calls for cooling, your fan will turn on right away and your condensing unit outside will turn on. What you AC is doing is removing heat inside the house and putting it somewhere else. That;s where your condensing unit comes in. The heat you removed inside the house is transferred outside where it is compressed and cooled through the use of the outdoor fan.

Now, imagine if this outdoor unit has dirty coil. You are no longer able to remove the heat from the house because it's not able to be removed because of a dirty coil. This means a huge loss in cooling capacity, higher running amperage on the compressor, and your electric bill being alot larger than it needs to be. I'll have the solution after I address the heat pump.

2. Now, the heat pump. It is basically an air conditioning unit that can reverse. In the summer, the outdoor unit will blow hot because of the heat it removed in the house. In the winter, the outdoor unit will be blowing cold because it is using the heat outdoors to add heat into your house. While this sounds weird, it's engineering at it's best. In the winter, heat is able to be removed from very low temperatures and your able to transfer heat into the house because you have a compressor in your unit. It does what it says. It takes a low pressure-low temperature refrigerant and compresses it into a high pressure-high temperature refrigerant.

Now, getting to the coils of both units. You need to clean the outdoor coil on both units every spring to make sure you have a clean coil. In the long run, this will allow the unit to expell the heat gained from the house and in the long run will add life to your compressor and save you money.

On the heat pump, you'll also need to clean the coil every fall. This is because if you don't, you could have a problem with freezing your outdoor coil. If you can't remove the heat from indoors, you will slowly turn your outdoor coil into an icemaker!!

So, based on what you have, turn the power off to your outdoor unit. Spray very good with a degreaser such as simple green and let it sit for about a half an hour. Then, grab your hose and wash out the coil. You'll be amazed what comes out. Let it sit for a coup0le hours to dry out, then turn the unit on.

This will not only extend the life of your compressor, it will also save you money in the long run!!

Is the heat pump cooling itself down? It is a combination heat pump/air conditioner wall unit.


If a unit is in heating mode the outdoor unit is in cooling mode (outside always does opposite of indoor) after a while if there is a build up of ice on outdoor coil unit stops and puts hot gas through outdoor coil to clear it. The indoor fan stops to avoid and heat loss in area served buy unit once this has been done and indoor unit coil is hot again fan will start. This is the correct operation of the unit to save against bust could and reduced efficiency

I have a Mitsubishi heat pump that runs well but the outdoor unit does not defrost what could be the problem.


Why does my heat pump ice up in Winter?
Heat pumps naturally ice-up in the winter. It is normal for the entire coil to be covered in a white frost and even light ice, during cold weather conditions. However, it is bad for the entire unit to be encased in ice. This indicates ductless heat pump problems which should be addressed quickly to save energy and avoid serious damage to your ductless unit. These systems should periodically go into a defrost cycle. This keeps the unit running efficiently. If the coils are blocked by ice, proper heat transfer between the coil and the outside air will not occur.
How does the defrost mode work?
When the mini split heat pump goes into defrost, the reversing valve inside of the outdoor unit is energized, switching the system from heat to the air conditioning mode. The outdoor coil becomes the hot, the indoor coil becomes cold, and both - the outdoor and indoor fans shut off. This allows the outdoor coil to melt accumulated ice. When the built-in micro-computer analyzes that all ice have been melted, the heat pump heating system goes back to heating mode.
sanyo-mini-split-defrost.pngA cloud of water vapor may be seen rising over the outdoor unit and a "whoosh" sound can be heard as the refrigerant reverses direction. The entire process usually takes up to 10 minutes (depending on conditions).
How often does the system goes into defrost mode?
Ductless mini-split heat pumps have different ways of determining when to go into defrost. The built-in microcomputer determines outdoor temperature, refrigerant pressures, and several other factors. In colder temperatures the system will go into defrost more often than in warmer.
If a ductless mini split heat pump is severely iced-up in the winter it is possible that it isn't defrosting (though there could be many other causes). Let the manufacturer certified technician check your system

Instead of the heating element turning on the heat pump runs out side thermostate is not set on eheat


The heatpump is your 1st. stage heat, when you have a call for heat it will bring on the outdoor unit.
When the first stage heat can't heat the house and the indoor temperature drops 2° or 3° then 2nd. stage heat will kick in and maintain the house temperature at about 2° or 3° below the temperature setting.
If you outdoor unit fails or goes into defrost then emergency heat will kick in and keep the house at 2nd stage temperature approximately 2° or 3° below thermostat setting.
If you have an outdoor thermostat or balance point setting on outdoor board, it will shut the outdoor unit off at a certain set outdoor temperature and the 2nd stage heat will be primary heat for the house.

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.
