If all the voltages are correct you might have a bad contactor. Check the low vltage wires that controle the contactor and see if you have >24 volts. There also might be a low pressure not letting it come on.

My unit is not putting out power to the thermostat. It's a heat pump with aux heater. Voltage tested between R and AUX/W2 posts show no Amps. What could cause this?


You have to go to your indoor unit its called a airhandler check high voltage going to unit should be 240volts .if you have 240volts look to see if there is a fuse either on the board or in line it will look like a car fuse 3amp or 5 amp check if fuse is blown but before checking make sure you pull disconnect so you dont have any high voltage going to unit. If fuse is blown get same exact fuse auto parts store will have them replsce put stab back in diconnect unit should run .if there is no fuse in airhandler keep high voltage on go to transformer and check for low voltage comeing out of transformer .NO 24 volts comeing out .replace transformer.if you have 24 volts comeing out of transformer check low voltage wireing thermostat wireing one goes to thermostat and other goes to out door heatpump usealy Brown in color and will have 8 small different colors wires inside brown jacket. Check for 24volts between red wire and common should be blue color if it is color coded. If no voltage there is a break in red or common wire.or sometimes just wirenuts need to be retightin.also when checking for low voltage one leed must be on common and other lead goes to red.also with high voltage off take face off thermostat carefully make sure all connections are TIGHTEN. This will also so you witchcolor wire is common it will be connected to C terminal hope this helps.note must have 24volts red and common or t-stat will not light up.hope this helps

Where is the low voltage 24 vac transformer located?


The transformer is located in the furnace. You might want to check to make sure the furnace door is on correctly brcause theres a swich that will open for safety . Also some have a fuse on the solid state board.

Just had a new 3.5 Ton Goodman GSZ13-13 SEER, heatpump installed. Its working OK in Cooling, however whe switched over to heating mode the indor unit makes a loud grumbling sound. The installer stated that...


I install them every day and I have not had one make a loud grumbling sound. Sounds like you might have a low voltage (Thermostat) wiring problem. The only thing different inside the indoors unit from heat and cool is the fan speed, electric heat when on. The fan might be loose or out of balance and it only shows up at low speeds. Either way, the noise is not normal.

Heatpump A/C not working


First,Turn on the heat cycle (Not Emergency)and see if the outside unit come on,If not,and you don't have low voltage outside,Go to the inside unit and test the transformer,If you have low voltage from the transformer but not outside,It is the low voltage wires,If you don't have low voltage from the transformer,It's the transformer.If you have low voltage outside when in heat mode,but the unit won't come on,It's the contactor.Let me know if you need more help.

Two lennox heatpump 71/2 tons


check the true psi with the line psi to see if same if psi is good in cooling 225 hi and 70 low on 80'day then compressor is fine and i would start checking for temp difference on the reversing valve sometimes this will cause high suction or high discharge psi shift it manually with by energising it be cooling or heating then pull wire and see how it shifts if shifts good then txv on out door unit could be bad what is the psi in heating on the discharge line going to the indoor unit? most prv's are set at about 350 psi r22 as for suction line size its only hot gas in hp mode os no problem their shows in cooling mode as low suction psi ..hope this helps some also make sure indoor coil is clean!....thanks & rate me

My 2 T. coleman heatpump stopped working, it makes a feint buz but does not start.


If you are not comfortable working around High Voltage, do not attempt to fix anything. At your own risk, there will be two small wires going to your outside unit and one set of larger wires. The larger set powers the unit with High Voltage. Leave them alone. The smaller wires carry Low Voltage and energize the control on the condenser. If your thermostat is not sending a signal, these two small wires will not have any voltage running thru them. Check for 24 volts when the thermostat is calling for Cool. For a quick test, jump out the terminals where the two wires connect and see if the outside unit starts. If not, you have issues that will require a technician. If it does start, check the wires for any breaks or bare spots and replace if you can. Check the thermostat and make sure it is in fact calling for Cool. Replace any batteries in it or jump out the same two wires at the thermostat and see if it starts. You may need to replace the thermostat if it does start.
