Check your thermostat and mode selector setting, thermostat setting should be set at warmer and mode selector setting should be at low heat or hight this is applicable for manual unit.
If it is a remote control just set the remote to heat mode.

The capacitor is located inside the control panel on the outside unit. It is round or oval and silver in color.It runs the outdoor fan and the compressor both.
The terminals are marked= C, /F or fan/, H or herm. C-F-H.
The microfarad rating is printed on the capacitor. Make a color code wire diagram before removeing wires.
Disconnect power to the unit. Use a insulated screwdriver to short out the terminals on the capacitor before removing it.

SOURCE: A/C drain pan not draining.
The drain must have one and only one trap in it. A trap is where the pipe goes up then back down so that water is kept in a section of the pipe - will stop the air from blowing thru the drain and not letting the water drain - may not sound right but it is! I've seen this many times! Drain traps are not understood at all by the HVAC industry.

Kenmore DX 1400 should be an ICP products central heat pump unit. As such, it will have the exact same charactoristics as the Tempstar, Comfortmaker, Heil or Arco air brands R410A, 14 SEER series of controls.
I am assuming when you say unit is shutting down that you mean only the outdoor unit, and the inside blower( air hanler / furnace? contiunues to blow.
First, there is a control in the outdoor unit called the "comfort alert module" this module closely monitors the compressors operation, as well as hi and lo pressure switches and amps of the compressor. If it senses a fault, in some cases a specific fault will cause the unit to shut down, it may not restart. The module has a set of lights. there is an index to translate the code faults by what color and timing of the flashes.
Secondly, there are several things that can cuase the result you have posted. Unit shutting down due to low pressure control could mean low freon charge, or freon restriction in the system. Both of these require a professional to look at the problem. if your installer put in an aftermarket time delay relay, this can cause the problem.
Last but not least, the rsult you are getting could be caused by a circuit board failure. heat pumps will have this.
End result, call a service company known for their ability to solve problems. Without more precise informaiton, the above suggestions are just avenues to look at. More information needed for a precise answer
