First unplug the unit......Take the front cover off, take the wire screen off where the front fan is there is 4 or 5 screws that hold the plate that was under the screen. The electric heating elements are under that plate between the evaporator coil and the front blower wheel. It will lift straight up and give you access to the elements. In the electric heating element area there is a limit switch with a red or black button in the center of it push it to reset the limit it is on the right hand side by the controls. I wish I could find a picture to show you but I couldn't find one. It is not easy to get to... Hope this helps.

I have an amana ptac model pth153B50AM it does not seem to cool much at all but I do hear the compressor come on.Before i cost myself a couple thousand dollars can anyone tell me is this fixable?


yes it is fixable does the blower run? I would pull it out take it outside and wash with hose the outside coil and inside coil make sure you clean the outside coil real good on both sides. this may solve your problem.

Check to see if there is a fan switch...if not, then more than likely, the fan relay is stuck closed.

Amana PTAC PTC093A35AA won't blow heat


The reset button is located behing a panel on the front of the unit that is labeled Heat Reset. If that label is gone then look around, it is a small hole, small enough for a paper clip to fit through.
That being said, I have 137 of these units in one of my hotels and have not had a single one needing to be reset. You probably are going to need a new control board kit. These can be purchased from Amana. They are $130. Make sure that you have pulled the heater coil out and inspected it first. Also, there was a recall years ago where Amana was supposed to contact and send out new voltage switches. These are the round black things that the Brown heater wires connect to on the upper and lower side of the heating coil. You should also try to replace those if you find the coil in good condition. I have had those resolve heating issues. Most of the heating issues were a result of a bad relay on the control board though.
Please remember to rate this fix.

Amana PTAC


Sounds like if this is a heat pump, maybe it tripped out on high pressure. Maybe just unplugging the system may reset the control boards. This maybe due to a dirty filter or dirty evaporator coil.

Ptac fan keeps blowing


Try setting the fan control to "AUTO" this will cause it to cut out with the compressor.
