If it's electric I would suspect the high limit fuse and thermostat located on element housing or the element itself. If it's a gas I would suspect the ignitor or gas valve coils.

I have a thermostat RTH9580. Why do I have emergency heat under system AND heat which sometines switch automatically to auxilliary heat?


If you have an air to air heat pump, in colder temperatures, the heat pump will not heat as well as it would in warmer outdoor temperatures making it run longer. the digital thermostats work off of a built in algorithm that kicks on the auxiliary heat when the heat pump runs to long so that it will satisfy the thermostat quicker. This can be tied to the Emergency heat @ the thermostat energizing a few heating elements, or just energizing a separate element from the emergency heat. I always recommend on an air to air heat pump to run the emergency heat when you have consistent Outdoor temperatures below 20 degrees F because you will cycle the heat less by getting hotter heat making life more comfortable, and it costs about the same as running the heat pump since @ those temperatures, it will run all the time.

Should the condensor fan come on in heat mode?


It depends on the type of heat. If your air conditioner is a heat pump where it runs in reverse (takes heat from the outside air and pumps it into the house), the condenser fan will run. If heat is auxiliary electric coils, only the inside fan should run.

Why is my Duo Therm Heat Pump Running in Aux Heat Mode?


If the compressor is running in heat mode but not producing any heat then the change over valve may be stuck. That is a job for a pro. If the thermostat isn't applying power to the changeover valve then a thermostat change is easy to do.

Honeywell Thermostat RTH6350 makes heat run in AC mode after AC runs


Well, if it wasn't doing that before then you more than likely know its in your wiring. Cools down then heats back up sounds like the auto change over is on, and the heat setting is higher than the cool setting?

What will happen if thermostat will be removed and


Good question: The thermostate acts as a valve (of sorts) allowing the engine to stay at a relative constant temp. If run without an engine will typically run too cool (this is not good as engines are designed to run at specific heats for best efficiency and motor oil too is designed to run a a designed heat. An engine can go the other way too and over heat. As mentioned the thermostate acts like a valve controling the flow of coolant thru the block and radiator. The run thru block is a long one and it will certainly pick-up heat however running without may cause the coolant to run too quickly thru the radiator so little heat will be lost. (imagine a lit candle run your finger thru it quickly and no heat exchange as it you will not burn your finger, slower you'll get the heat from the candle and burn your finger. In short use a thermostate, your engine was trully engineered to have one.

I hope this expalins it for you,

Heat pump fan does not run when house heat is on


The outside fan should be running except when the Heatpump goes in to defrost mode. Then the fan stops with the compressor running and it switches the reversing valve to heat up the outdoor coil. That should last about 5 min and you may see steam come off of the outdoor coil. That's normal.
Is the compressor running? It's possible that it's stuck in defrost or the fan simply died. I hope this helps.
