    Where do you live? And you need to know what is known as the "balance point" of where the heat pump and the outside temperature makes it necessary to use the alternate fuel.

We says the outside can pull heat out of 40* air, below this change to emergency heat or it should do this with the thermostat on its own.

Heil heat pump heat won't work changed defrost board ac works


Reversing valve may be bad or stuck. U can pull the fan, then turn the unit on. The reversing valve is just a small unit with a 110 V. cable going to it. Sometimes taping the valve will make it change to heat.if so it will need to be replaced.

A downeast hot tub water is only 78 degrees turn up to 100 doesn't never get warmer and shows a ECn code


Check your filter cycles and switch spa into Standard Mode as you have it in Economy. (In Economy mode it will only heat during the filter cycles).
If the Ecn or Ec Message is Alternating with the Water Temperature on the Display, the Spa is Operating in the Economy Heating Mode.

If the Ecn or Ec Message is ON Solid (Not Flashing) on the Display, the Spa is Operating in the Economy Heating Mode, but there is No current water temperature because the Spa is between Filter Cycles.

Ecn or Ec is Alternating with Temp:
The Spa is Operating in the "Economy" (Ecn or Ec) Heating Mode.

The Water Temperature is Sampled Only during Programmed Filter Cycles. The Heater will Only operate and Heat up to Set Temperature during the Filter Cycles. The Water Temperature will probably drop Below Set Temperature between Filter Cycles. Other Heating Modes are Standard, Standard in Economy, and Sleep Modes.

Ecn or Ec is ON Solid (Not Flashing):
The Current Water Temperature is "Unknown" (- - - or - -) while in Economy or Sleep Mode.

Between Filter Cycles, while in the Economy or Sleep Heating Modes, the Pump has not turned ON and the Last Water Temperature is not Current. To read the Current Water Temperature, either Change to Standard Heating Mode or turn On the Heating Related Pump, and wait at least 2 Minutes.

Heil epm36f19a1 runs but no heat


Fan relay is stuck among other things. The thermostat turns on the combustion air fan and puts power to the spark unit. If the burner comes on after the temperature in the heat exchanger rises the indoor fan will then come on. After the thermostat comes to temperature the power to the gas valve which shuts off the burner. Then after the heat exchanger cools a bit the indoor fan will stop. That's the sequence of events. look at the switches that control the fans. There is a wiring diagram somewhere on one of the panels that access the unit for service.

Should my Heil heat pump CH95 automatically defrost? And when?


It depends if it has a defrost control built into it or not. Most units do not come with them installed they are an add on feature that you have to pay for. if the outside unit is icing up then the outside temperature is probably to low to run the compressor. I would switch over to aux. or emegency heat option on the thermostat as in low temperatures it is not efficent to run a heat pump anyway. Hope this helps have a wondeful evening.
