It sounds like it may be iceing up, it takes awhile to thaw then kicks back in and runs until it ices up again, remove access cover, clean condensers gently and thoroughly, don't bend the fins make sure freeze sensers on condensers are making good contact

Assuming this is a heat pump I'm guessing you have a bad temp sensor. Your outdoor fan is likely controlled by a temp sensor so it only runs as needed during heating. Fan not coming on and compressor still needs cooled therefore compressor protection kicking in?????

Check the blower motor capicator. It should be mounted close to the motor with 2 wires to it (brown,brown/white).
Turn the blower on the thermostat and spin the squirrel cage by hand and see if it runs after by itself. If it does then definitely the capicator is bad .If it still doesn't run then check to see if there is voltage going to motor.
If thermostat is calling for fan and there is voltage present at the motor terminal then the motor is bad

Have a goodman heat pump and air mover smelt plastic burning and cut tremostat off fan continues to run with a little warm air coming out with it off on thermostat


Hi, did you smell this plastic burning at the thermostat? The stat is only low voltage, 24 volts but may have shorted the fan contacts together causing the fan to run. The way to check is to take the first section of the stat off. Get to the wires coming in. Should have several since it is a heat-pump, but remove the red wire and tape or clip the bare end off. Turn on breaker back on. If the fan stays off, the stat is faulty. Make sure you buy a heat-pump stat. If fan keeps running, the problem will be in the main board/defrost board. It has shorted causing the fan to run and this is where the smell came from. You can sometimes remove the 4 screws to board and look at the back and if your lucky you will see the burned spot. Make sure the breaker is off first. Let me know. Good luck,

Where is the reset button on an Amana ASZ14 unit?


I don't think the Amana ASZ14 Heat Pump has a reset switch, but you can still reset it by resetting the power (when it's not running... turn your thermostat OFF first).

To reset the power, locate your circuit breaker box. There should be a double-breaker for the Heat Pump and another double-breaker for the Air Handler. Turn them both off for at least 2-3 minutes. Then flip them back on and turn your thermostat back ON.

You're thermostat may also have a RESET button that you can push. I have to reset mine every time I change the batteries in it.

During the summer time it will cut off sounds like it is loosing fuel pressure will turn over, but wont start back up until at least an hour later. Drives perfect during the winter time no problems,...


What causes this is ussually the oxygen sensor. It works when the engine heats up and if its no good, it will run your engine lean or even shut it down. check them and replace them. They should be done every 2 years.

My amana heat pump will start and run momentarily and stop several times, and eventually it works, the house stays at 70 degrees so it works but this does not sound right what's the problem if any?


Hi; I need more info. Do You mean the outdoor unit is stoping and starting while running in a call for heat by the tstat. When heat pumps run if the temperature out side reaches low enough the outside unit will go into a defrost cycle to remove any build up of frost or ice. If the outdoor unit has a dirty coil or a low freon issue this also can trick the unit into a premature defrost cycle. Now here is another scenerio.If Your ac is running in the cool mode and stops prematurly there could be several problems. Low freon level, faulty fan motor causing the compressor to go into a freon bypass mode wich sounds very spewy. Please tell me if you are in heat mode.. Also how old is the unit. Sometimes a severly worn control contactor can disallow all the needed voltage to cross over to Your fan motor and compressor. Watch unit while its acting up... Also when unit goes into a sceduled defrost the fan will stop this is normal and will restart when the unit comes out off defrost You will here this big swoosh sound. Thats the freon being redirected back into the heating path.Let me know...alpharome416

I have a 2 ton Goodman heat pump. when it gets to the temp. it is set on it will not cut off. I can cut the thermostat back 2 degrees and it will cut off until it gets cold enough to come back on and then...


Heat pump have coeficient of performance. They are rated at about 60 degrees. So at 60 degrees you get 24,000 but the colder it gets the lower the rate 40 degrees18,000 and so on. Now on your Goodman depending how cold it is outside a heat pump reaches a balance where it runs all the time. That is if your heat pump is charged correctly. Your problem might be that it is a little low on Freon. Also your back up or auxillary heat to comes on to help keep up. On some tstats that is about 2 degrees behind the set temp. On digital tstats if the heat pump can not keep up it is about two minutes behind. I hope I have not confused you but it is better for the heat pump to run and pull 9 amps than the electric abck up to come on pull 9 plus 20 to 30 for the heat. Answer just have your charge checked ask for Service check special I have them with my company and it cost about 50.00 to check and clean systen Freon exrtra. Check your aair temp between the inlet and the closest outley should be at least 20 to 25 degree rise in temp. FEEDBACK WELOME Rus

Amana Cooling Condensing Unit fan stops spinning after 15 mins


Capacitor, dirty condencer coil causing the motor amps to run too high. But most likely worn bearing on blade side of motor causing it to pull to one side causing it to over heat and shut down. Sleve bearings should have no side play.
