Top convection oven not heating. Seems to occur sporadically but more often won't heat. I sent the 2 relay boards and oven display board out for analysis and repair. I am still having the problem.


One of the first things I check on any heating device besides the element is the High limit switches that only allow the element to work if the heat stays below a certain degree range. They areon furnaces, dryers, wall heaters, etc. They usually look the size of a small coin abouit 3/4 -1" with little wings on the side to for screws to secure them. That may be your problem.

Heat pump not keeping up to set temperature on thermostat but never drops below 63 degrees whens its 20 degrees outside.


It may be getting low on refrigerant due to a small leak. I'd have it serviced soon. When running at less than peak efficiency it will much more often switch on the heat strips and they are not cheap to operate.

Questions about a dual energy heating furnace


If you have a heat pump the electric heat is the emergency heat. Short explanation of a heat pump is it switches the jobs of the indoor and outdoor coils. So instead of taking heat from inside and moving it outside it works backwards picking up heat from outside and moving it indoors. Probably an electrical problem. 7_7_2014_5_33_51_pm.png

Will not come on but emergence heat works


Check contactor that operates compressor and condenser fan. Does it try to come on when you first turn it on, or just sits there? If it tries to come on, it could be the capacitor.

Blower works no heat


Most electric furnaces use time delay relays called sequencers to turn the heating elements on and off. If your thermostat is calling for heat, the sequencer coil should get 24 volts and the contacts will close in a pre-determined order bringing on each element individually. If the sequencer coil is getting 24 volts and the elements are not heating, then one of the following issues is going on. 1. The sequencer contacts are not closing because it is defective. Therefore the heating element is never getting proper voltage (usually 208/230V) 2. The heating element may be broken. 3. The high temperature limit switch for the element may be open, not allowing proper voltage to the element, or 4. The element is not getting proper voltage because of a blown fuse, tripped breaker, or broken wire. I hope this helps!!!

I have a goodman self contained heat pump that is 3 and 1/2 years old. I wake in the night to hear what sounds like the fan runnning and running and running and air moving thru the vents. Then I will hear...


Heat pumps are a very efficient design when working properly. But lose efficiency the colder it gets outdoors. I usually tell people when it drops below freezing to turn the thermostat to aux or em. heat. A heat pump can remove heat from 20°f air. But not very well. More heat at 30°f air, obviously, and so on. So the colder it is outdoors, the longer it will operate to remove heat from outdoors. And then, if it can't keep up, it brings on the electric heat elements to compensate. Now you are running both outdoor and indoor heat. This is where it's inefficient and costly. Also, the outdoor will start to freeze up. This is normal unless you can see a substantial amount of ice. The heat pump will engage defrost mode, cycling on the electric heat indoors. And defrost mode is actually cooling mode! The reversing valve in the heat pump switches to cooling mode, cycles off the outdoor fan, and defrosts for a set time or temp. So now your electric heat is engaged, and your indoor coil is a COLD coil! Not hot! Very inefficient. These 2 things are why your elec bill is higher in the winter. So it makes sense to me, if the elec heat is going to be on anyway, to move the tstat to aux or em. heat, when it's going to be below freezing outdoors. This will turn off the heat pump and use elected heat only. The only down side to this is, if you don't have enough elec heat to keep you warm, you may need both heat pump and elec heat. So trial end error until you find what works. Also, have a qualified tech check the system for operation and efficiency. Hope this helps!

I have a Goodman Electric furnace, Model AR 30-1 that is not putting out enough heat. Could it be that the heating coil is going out? Air from ducts is lukewarm at best.


There are more than one set of electric coils in these units. You can test each one with an amprobe to see which one has no flow. Than it is a matter of finding out why. Sequencers stagger the starting order of coils in electric furnaces, could have one of several other issues!

It seems that the temp more often goes up to 20-30's and that food is not as frozen when I check it. When temp goes up I check it for next couple of minutes and usually within 10 min the temp is back down...


This is normal. All commercfial freezers must defrost 3 to 5 times a day, or they will freeze over at the coil and then stop freezing. A timer in your freezer turns off the compressor and turns a heating element on for 10 to 15 minutes. During that time the coil heats and melts frost from the coil. Usually within 30 minutes the temperature will briefly rise to 20 t0 25 degrees F and then quickly drop down to 0 degrees F. The food rarely defrosts in this short period of time..

It is not freezing up because of the temperature, but because of ice being formed in inside. Either by a blocked condensation duct, or snow due to previous storm.
