The manual reset is a small switch on the computer control board. If that doesn't fix the problem, while you are there, you will see 2 small black boxes wired into the computer board marked "heater 1" and "heater 2". These are relays, one of which has probably gone bad. You can either order a computer board for about $100 or replace the relays yourself with a soldering gun. You can order the relays for $4.02 apiece from Digi-key Corp. Part # is JTN1aS-PA-F-DC5V for the relay.

It sounds like your blower is coming on before your heat. With gas if your unit is new enough, typically you have an ignition mode to start your heat process, flame recognition, and then full burners, heating up your heat exchanger, and then bringing on your blower. Your blower maybe controlled by a circuit board, just depends upon age of your system.

SOURCE: Amana PTAC PTC093A35AA won't blow heat

The reset button is located behing a panel on the front of the unit that is labeled Heat Reset. If that label is gone then look around, it is a small hole, small enough for a paper clip to fit through.
That being said, I have 137 of these units in one of my hotels and have not had a single one needing to be reset. You probably are going to need a new control board kit. These can be purchased from Amana. They are $130. Make sure that you have pulled the heater coil out and inspected it first. Also, there was a recall years ago where Amana was supposed to contact and send out new voltage switches. These are the round black things that the Brown heater wires connect to on the upper and lower side of the heating coil. You should also try to replace those if you find the coil in good condition. I have had those resolve heating issues. Most of the heating issues were a result of a bad relay on the control board though.
Please remember to rate this fix.

Sounds as though the power cord reset switch might be bad and need to be replaced. If not, then there is a short somewhere in the system. Do an ohms test on the switch to determine if it is bad.

Work in a hotel and I have some broken front covers and was wondering if you sell them (just the plastic front covers) and any phone or email to get in touch and compraselas


Sir, we don't and can't sell anything on this website, other than information on how to repair something or where YOU can find it. In this case, I would suggest that you contact the manufacturer, Amana directly.

I have an Amana PTAC unit model no. PTH153B50AM. It will not heat, but the fan runs continuously in the heat mode. The unit has a label that says it has a manual reset for the heater, but no direction as...


First unplug the unit......Take the front cover off, take the wire screen off where the front fan is there is 4 or 5 screws that hold the plate that was under the screen. The electric heating elements are under that plate between the evaporator coil and the front blower wheel. It will lift straight up and give you access to the elements. In the electric heating element area there is a limit switch with a red or black button in the center of it push it to reset the limit it is on the right hand side by the controls. I wish I could find a picture to show you but I couldn't find one. It is not easy to get to... Hope this helps.

Heater stopped working. Fan works, control panel diagnostic check reports no failure code. Placard on front of unit says heater unit has manual reset, I can't find a reset button or breaker for heater....


The front panel should be held in place by four screw at the corners or snap in place. Either remove screws or pull gently on top right corner to remove cover. You should see a red reset buttom type reset. Push it in to reset. Hope this helps. Thanks.

I have the same problem, and I found the manual reset inside the unit. Turn the power off, and unplug the unit. Remove the outer cover of the unit ( inside cover ) , and remove the 2 screws holding the " wire mesh " in the front of the cover. Pull the wire mesh up and out of the way, then carefully pull out the heating element.
On the heating element, where the wires are connected, there is a manual reset button... Push the button in, till it resets...

My reset was on the upper left connection of the wires... just looks like a small push button, but the reset is recessed a bit.
Replace all covers and plug back in.. working fine..
