Question about GE Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I noticed our heat pump was running all the time, even on warmer days 40 degrees and warmer. i turned it off in the house at the tstat and flipped the breaker off, hoping to reset it, when i turned it back on, it was still running all the time. aux heat comes on alot, too. Not sure if this is a normal thing or not. any advice?

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

sounds like you relays are frozen on at the compressor, you should have a grey box, that looks like a power box, you can pull the fuse their or at the ckt breaker

Coleman Evcon furnace blower runs w/ no call for heat. Temp is 5+ degrees above thermostat setting. (Programmable tstat)


When you say door are you referring to the front door or the furnace door? If the unit kicks on AND off by itself I would say it's in the tstat or the tstat wire. If it were internal I would think the blower relay or heat contactor/relay were getting stuck AND THE FAN WOULD NOT TURN OFF until you flipped the breaker. Good luck

Goodman gph1348m41ac unit is blowing cool air in heat mode with mid 30s ambient outdoor temp. I turn it off then on and will usually blow warm air but this cycle is becoming more repetitive. any expert...


A heat pump on the optimal heating day (about 50 degrees ambient) will only deliver approximately 85 degree air as compared to 125 degree air from a fossil fueled furnace. The colder the outdoor air is the less heat there is available to be transferred to the living space. At 30 degrees, the heat transfer capability is getting close to negligible meaning the run cycles will be approaching continuous and eventually as the heat pump along cannot maintain setpoint, the outdoor stat or stats will bring on auxilliary heat in the air handler.

If your ambient temp is below the 'balance point' of the heat pump, the house temp will drop a little lower and most times energize the heat strips through the outdoor t-stat. Your outdoor stat could be set too low for the heat pump to carry the structure all the way down to the balance point so when you turn it off and back on, the lower indoor temp automatically brings on the heat pump plus a heat strip or two, thus the warmer air. Second stage on the stat satisfies due to the heat strip, drops them out of the circuit and the heat pump is left running on first stage heat delivering the perceived cold air.

Your outdoor stat could also be not functioning correctly and not allowing the heaters to come on until the system is turned back on reestablishing the two stage call for heat.

Tons of possibilities and not enough room to list....

You have a heat pump.
Once the outdoor temperature falls below 36 degrees, heat pumps will sharply lose their ability to heat.
If you are getting a 72 degree indoor temperature when the outdoor temperature is 28-30 degrees, the heat pump is performing up to spec.
On heat pumps, the air coming out of the nearest air vent to the unit should be heated approximately 40 degrees warmer than the air entering the unit.
If you have a 70 degree indoor air temperature, the heat pump should be supplying 110 degree air at the closest air vent to the indoor unit.
Gas heat is a much better heating source where outside temperatures are commonly below 36 degrees.
Even electric furnaces perform better than heat pumps under these conditions.

Honewell RTH 7500 Temp Sensor Problem?


Check your installer configuration. If you have it set up, in the configuration, to match your system, and you can turn it up by 5 degrees with no heat, it may be a fault at the tstat. If and when it fails to cycle on, you can jump R to W, by touching those 2 terminal/wires together, and it should begin the heat process. If it don't, then it's not your tstat. Hope this helps!

We have a new a/c and the system has heat strips. For a/c. we have had the thermostat set on AC at 72degrees. Now that it is getting colder and may need some heat in the house, do we switch the...


If your thermostat has an emergency heat setting this means you have a heat pump system.
Yes you need to set the thermostat to heat for heating the house.
The emergency heat setting should never be used unless your outside unit is not functioning.
The emergency heat setting overides the heat pump (the outside unit will not be energized).
The emergency heat setting will run the auxillary heat (heat strips) only.
When the thermostat is set in the heat position the heat pump will run to heat your house.
If the heat pump can't keep up (extreme cold) then then the auxillary heat will kick in to augment the heat pump until it satisfies the thermostat settings. If your room temperature gets 2 degrees below your thermostat setpoint, your auxillary heat will kick on. Example, say you are going to be gone a couple of days and you turn your heat down to 60 degrees. When you return and it is 60 degrees in your house, you turn the thermostat up to 70 degrees. Since you are turning the temperature up 2 degrees or more (10 degrees in this case) from the 60 degree room temperature then the heat pump will come on and the auxillary heat strips. The unit will continue heating like this until the temperature in the house gets to 69 degrees and the heat strips will turn off and the heat pump will continue to run until the 70 degree setpoint is reached.
Hope this helps.

Setting changes! what is most effecient setting? Is a manual available?


Hi; Okay I have had over the last 25 years been ask the same question a thousand times. Technicly speacking so many BTUs are needed to cool or heat a space,(square feet).If You have a high heat or cooling load it will require more BTUS to reach Your normal desired temperature If You leave for work in the summer and turn up the tstat to 90


degrees. When You get home and turn down the tstat to 75 degrees Your air cond. system will run a very long time and pull more power due to the excessive load. This process can sometimes exceed the normal amperage rating ion the equipment and will incress Your power bill and shorten the life of Your equipment. So with this being said You can pay me now or pay me later. I personally think if you leave out for any length of time set Your tstat up to 80 degrees or 5 to 7 degrees slide cooling or heating this is acceptable. I wouldnt recomend a programmable tstat these devices are very complex to program or diagnose. These devices will make You some times pull Your hair out and run around the house screeming in a rage.

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

If you have a volt meter, check to see if you have 24 volts coming from the thermostat on the yellow wire.

If you do, and it is set on emer heat, you have a bad T-stat.


It looks like it is wired properly.

If you have no meter, you could try changing the stat, I reccomend Honeywell or white rodgers.

Let me know if you eliminate the Tstat as the problem and we can go from there.
Chances are its the stat.

Ruud heat pump high pressure cut off problem


That's going to be in your installer configuration. Check and make sure the G terminal has a wire connected to it at the tstat , and that connection it tight. In the configuration menu, make sure it is set for a heat pump, elected heat. It seems to me that the tstat doesn't know its connected to a heat pump. Should be able to locate aodel # for tstat on the back of it. And ask Mr. Google for a manual, if you don't have 1. Hope this helps!
