Question about Amana PTH123B25AJ Heat Pump Air Conditioner

1 Answer

1997 Amana 2 or 2.5 ton heat pump, 13 seer - air handler only blows 4-5 min

Amana 13 Seer 2 or 2.5 ton heat pump and air handler installed new in July '97 in 1400sf 1 story brick ranch, w/ lots of tree shade during day, 8" blown insul in attic that has ridge and eave vents. Outside temps mid 80's - 60/pm.

Air handler only blows cool air for about 3-4 minutes before slows, then ramps up and blows hard for abt 1 minute before stops blowing - this happens about 2 or 3 times per hour.

Any ideas?

Do you have a totaline t-stat. they and some other brands have a fan recirculation setting in the installers menu.

this is assuming that this happens in addition to the heating or cooling normally

Why is my heat pump tripping circuit breaker continuously?


Probably a weak breaker. I would change it and see if it happens again. If the problem continues call a hvac guy out

Amana heat pump 13 seer split system when in heat pump mode once the thermostat is satisfied the head pressure on the high side shoots up to 600


410 a runs at a much higher pressure then r-22. that is still very high. it would take a temperture over 150 degrees to produce it on a idle system.

I had a 2 ton 13 SEER air handler installed last August to replace one about 27 years old. The condenser was installed about 14 years ago and it's rated as a 10 SEER. Is there a problem of them operating...


The air 'handler' is nothing more than a type of fan turned by a motor.
The condenser however is a sealed, closed system with coolant that will need to be properly removed (EPA stuff). The condenser must be installed with care, recharged, then checked for leaks.
There is far more involved than replacing an air mover.

I do most of my repairs myself but sealed systems that must be charged is something I leave up to a pro.

Difference in seer


i would check fan speed. it's probably on high. you might be moving more air with new system. a dirty evaporater on old unit woud have gave you a larger temperture drop.

Replacing HVAC


Check with you energy company. We found out after we replaced our unit, that if we went with a particular seer we would have qualified for discounts to our bill as well as government incentives and additional discounts. It will keep you cost reasonable and your energy company will give you an honest answer to which will be best for your specific house layout as well as your electrical connections that will need to match up with your new unit. Hope this helped some.

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.

Just had the haier 4 ton 13 seer outside unit installed. my inside unit is a payne and still in good condition.had a 4 ton 10 seer outside unit previously. my problem is the unit froze up the first night...


Your problem is that your 13 seer outdoor unit is not compatible with your 10 seer indoor unit, even though the tonnage is the same. The metering device on 13 seer indoor units is different. Most 10 seer indoor units do not have an expansion valve. When you change from a 10 seer outdoor unit to a 13 seer outdoor unit, you must, at the very least, change the from a fixed-orfice metering device to an expansion valve.
