I understand that you have a heat pump that doesn't work in cooling mode , and if the thermostat is not for heat pump , it will not work.First be sure you have the right thermostat and then that is wired correctly. Let me know what kind you have and I help you to wire it.

Replaced Thermostat and now Blower Motor will not run


Sounds like a set up issue on the tstat. You say this is a packaged unit, inside the machine you should find where the tstat wires hook up. Typically red is power yellow is compressor orange is reversing valve white is emergency heat green is blower. Put red and green together, test blower. Then red green and yellow, make sure blower works again. If blower runs both ways it's either the tstat wire or tstat itself. Make sure you are landing wires on dedicated heat pump terminals, make sure in settings you are set up for heat pump with back up electric heat and TSTAT CONTROLS THE FAN. Good Luck. Also if there is a switch on the tstat for gas or electric on the back you want electric.

I'm seeing a master switch on the control board, try a reset there. But, sounds like a bad element. You need to test continuity through your heater components. When testing a component unhook wires first, as they will still have continuity even if bad with wires attached.

Indoor fan blowing cold air when on heating


The indoor fan will continue to run. When heat pump goes into defrost the outdoor fan stops, the reversing valve switches and the unit is basically working in the cooling mode. In order for you not to feel a blast of cold air in the winter the electric strip heat also comes on so the indoor fan must run while the strip heaters are on.

Sometimes the auxilary heat light comes on, and this morning the auxilary and emergency lights were on. Our electric bill has been really high the past two months.


Assuming we are talking about a Heat Pump system with an outdoor condensing unit and an indoor air handler, it is not uncommon for electric bills to escalate during the harder winter months.
Typically, the auxilary heat light energizes whenever the electric strip heaters are in use. These heaters are used to supplement the heat from your heat pump system which will be unable to maintain desired occupied setpoint with outdoor temperatures below 35degF. At outdoor temperatures below 35degF is not uncommon for the heat pump to run non-stop and the electric heaters will cycle on and off as the temp in the house drops between 1/2 to 1 1/2degF below setpoint. The electric heaters will also come on when the system goes into a defrost mode...defrost modes typically last anywhere between 2 - 8 minutes. The emergency lights, depending on your thermostat, will come on whenever the thermostat is placed in EMER HT. Some systems energize the emergency heat lights to indicate there is a problem with your condensor unit.
I suggest you ensure the thermostat is in HEAT mode and not EMER HT mode. Also, while the system is running, step outside and visually inspect your condensing unit. Is it running? Does it appear and sound like it is running normally?
Don't forget your air filter. This is the single most important and most-neglected maintenance item on your system.

If after these steps, you still feel as though you are having problems and would like to try and correct them yourself, please let us know.

I hope you find this information helpful. Good Luck to you! :-)
