Hi, on all heat pumps, the reversing valve will be energized in the cooling mode only. The only units that the coil on the valve is energized in the heating mode is a Rheem and Ruud unit, they will default to cooling if they fail, this is crazy but they do it. You say your reversing valve is energized and stays there. I know you don't have a Rheem. If it is energized at the coil, it must be in the cooling mode. If you want it in the heating mode, and it is not switching the sleeve and ball bearing in the valve, it may be the thermostat, a faulty reversing valve 24 volt coil, or the control board at the outdoor unit it self. I wish I knew what season you are in, if you live where it is hot or where its cold right now? For a temp. fix on this, you can de-energize the valve by removing the panel where the compressor is and unplug the coil to the valve and it will switch back the other way if the valve isn't hung up its self. Very easy to unplug this coil, just grasp the black plug if you are sure it is energized, and pull it off of the 2- terminals to remove power to it. Depending on what mode it is in, I am assuming cooling as it is energized in cooling, you can also go to the circuit board and find the o or b terminal, which ever is being used to switch the valve, and take off the wire. This should kill the power to the coil. To find out which part is causing it not to de-energize, you will have to start at the thermostat after you hook all up like it was, and remove the o/orange wire or b/blue wire to see if it kills this coil. If so, the stat is bad. If not, wire it back up and go to the control board. Kill all power to the a/c. You want to take a look at the back side of this board. It is very tight and will have 4-stand off screws to remove. If you need to remove any wires, write the colors and terminals they come off of so you know where they go. This is very important. You just want to peak in behind it to see if you see any hot or burnt spots anywhere. I have seen this over, and over again. If so, this board is the problem. If you are still getting 24 volts to this coil when you are not in the cooling mode, you still have a faulty stat or control board. These are what sends voltage to the reversing valve coil.I would start with the stat as this is the least expensive of the two parts. If you don't feel you can tackle this, don't feel bad as this is something that you must be or have some training in to troubleshoot it. If this coil is energized, unplug it to kill the power to reverse it, so you can temp. fix this. Please keep me posted on this and please rate me as I know you will be kind. I will be checking in with you to see if you called out any one, and I hope that the reversing valve has not froze up on you.
Sincerely,

    Thank you for the great rating. So, you are getting a new unit. This will solve your problem for sure. Just food for thought, remember that the only a/c on the market today that are heat-pumps that the reversing valve is energized in the heating mode, is the Rheem, and Ruud units and they have a 240 volt coil on the reversing valve as all other units have a 24 volt coil and are energized in the cooling mode.

Tip

On a heat pump the difference between haet and cool is the reversing valve


On a heat pump the difference from heat to cool is the reversing valve.
In cooling or heating the Y1 terminal will always be energized, this is the contactor.
Depending on brand the reversing valve will either be energized in Heat or Cool. At the outdoor unit check to see if the reversing valve is getting 24 volts in cool, if not check to see if it is getting 24 volts in heating. The easiest way to check if the reversing valve is shifting, is to feel the big copper tube, (it is not the suction line on a heat pump) this is a refrigerant vapor line. It will be cold in cooling and hot in heating.
Check your thermostat installation instructions and heat pump installation instructions to determine the proper terminal designations for your heat pump and thermostat. There are some brands out there that use the B terminal as common to the 24 volt circuit, so you have to check the wiring and make sure this is not common.
If it is energized in Cool then the Y1 and O terminal will be energized. You will have 24 volts from common usually the C terminal to Y1 and O.
If it’s energized in Heat then the Y1 and B terminal should be energized. You will have 24 volts from common usually the C terminal to Y1 and B.
If you get heat when you’re calling for cooling or vice versa then switch the wire between the B and O terminals.

Change out problem


AIR HANDLERS DO NOT ENERGIZE REVERSING VALVE , THE THERMOSTAT DOES THE JOB THROUGH THE O  OR B TERM TO THE OUTSIDE UNIT. IF YOU HOOK UP TO O TERM AND HEAT COMES ON WHEN YOU SET AC ON THEN SWITCH TO B TERM ON STAT. YOU SHOULD HAVE O TERM ON CONDENSER OUTSIDE AND YOU USE ORANGE WIRE IF YOU HAVE ONE. IF NOT USE UNUSED WIRE IN 6 WIRE STAT HARNESS.

Lg minisplit heat pump will not heat


You may want to check that the pressure switch is not functioning? Secondly there is also a thermo sensor on the condenser coil which could be faulty.

System does not go into defrost


Did you check the solenoid on the reversing valve? Has the compressor ever been replaced?

Most reversing valves are normally in heat pump mode, and when the solenoid is energized, it is in A/C mode (in summer cooling, the valve is energized.). If the solenoid is bad, then the unit can not switch to defrost.
If the compressor has been replaced, there is a chance that the reversing valve might have some trash in it, preventing it from switching over. Lightly tap on the valve when defrost or A/C mode is being asked for.

Replace Carrier tstatccshp01 builders standard thermostat with Honeywell rth7500 series and wiring not matching Does O wire go to Aux..? fan working but no cool air.


No... Aux. is auxiliary heat strip. This is usually a white or black wire its up to the choice of the installers preferance. O or orange wire. is used to the reversing valve on a heat pump. If you do have a heat pump there is a programing section inside the Honeywell t-stat. which should say heat pump or straight cool, then another section that will ask if you want the reversing valve to energize in heat or cool. most Heat Pump brands energize in cool the exception is Rheem and Ruud they energize in heat.
