If you filter is in the furnace, it may be clogged or has moved out of position. Thereby, triggering the sensor that is signaling the thermostat that there's a "filter malfunction". and turned the heat cycle off. Check the filter for clogs and change the filter or if it's not in the proper position, but it back in place.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN WHEN HEAT IS SET 66 AUX IS FLASHING


If it is a heat pump if the ambient I door temp is not than 3 degree s lower than 66 it utilizes the aux heat ( heat strips) to help the unit achieve your desired temperature set point faster. Also the heat pump does need help if trying to overcome really cold temperatures. Once set point is achieved the heat pump should be able to keep the home at the set point without aux heat. But the flashing may just be to let you know that the heat strips are in use at the current time. See if when the temperature gets close to your set temp if it goes away. If not a heat pump it may always flash to just tell you heat strips are in use. Some homes mostly trailers only have heat strips but on heat pumps heat strips are there to help heat pump get to your desired temp. But when your heat pump can maintain the temp without the strips is where it saves power. Also heat pump thermostat hVe emergency heat settings. This scares alot of people but if your heat pump isn't working and you have to switch it to emergency heat until you can get it fixed,. That means that the system is only using heat strips and not utilizing heat pump at all. Power bill may be a little higher but remember, most trailer homes only have heat strips and if you do not use emergency heat in this situation your heat strips will only heat home 3 degrees below set point on thermostat to allow heat pump to bring it up the other 3 degrees. If heat pump isn't working correctly you will always be 3 degrees colder than what you set you thermostat at. Maybe too much info but it's prolly just your aux heat on helping system achieve the desired temp you set thermostat too.

Heat Pump - blows heat to set temp, then off, then kicks on to blow cold


Heat pumps defrost which is the AC mode, if the heat strip isnt working during a defrost, the air will be cold, A heat pump only feels warm if the heat strips are on too! the refrigeration cycles heat output is much less sensible to our 98F skin. heat pumps that satisfy a room setpoint are working at least, all heat pumps feel drafty to most.

Have an 2003 Olds Alero 2.2L, overheating. Removed thermostat housing/feed pipe to check thermostat to find no thermostat present, however the heat has working, although it has took 5 or 6 minutes to warm...


I can't give you any specifics on how to change your water pump, but I can answer your questions about the thermostat. Yes, the heat will work withou a thermostat. And yes, a car will overheat without one, especially in the summer months. The purpose of a thermostat is to allow cooler water to flow into your block, but also to allow the water adequate time to be cooled in the radiator. Without the thermostat, water is continuously cycling through your coolant system, getting hotter and hotter. Often I see people with malfunctioning thermostats jsut remove them, sometimes on the side of the road, just to get where they're going.

What does the "auxillary heat"


Auxiliary Heat is used to turn the electric heat strips ON, If the heat pump is not working. Or if the heat pump can't bring the space temperature up to Set Temperature it will display Aux Heat ON....... Assuming you have a Heat Pump System with Auxiliary Electric Heat as Back up...... If the tech didn't install a jumper wire from AUX to W on the subase which is in back of the Display on the Thermostat.....you won't get Auxiliary Heat if the Thermostat is set for Auxiliary Heat. Other wise the thermostat will turn the heat pump on first and then the electric heat (Aux Heat) if it needs it to satisfy the set temperature....... Hope this helps

On the thermostat the "filter"


Thermostats used in homes sometimes have a timer built in which will remind you to change your furnace filter. Most of them can be adjusted or disabled. The thermostat has no way of knowing whether the filter is actually dirty, it just reminds you every so often by flashing "filter" on the display.

It is possible to reset the timer, or adjust how often it appears, or disable it completely. Exactly how to do that depends on the make and model of your thermostat. Often, it is simply a case of holding two buttons at the same time for a few seconds.

As to why the furnace doesn't come on, there can be many reasons. The problem likely is not the "filter" flashing on the display of your thermostat. Try resetting the breakers that service the furnace unit itself. Make sure that the thermostat is set to "heat" and the setting is turned up. If the thermostat uses batteries (most do these days), replace them.

If this doesn't work, the following information will be helpful to get the furnace running again:
Brand
Model number
Age of furnace
Location in home
Brand and model of thermostat

what it sounds like happening is the unit is realizing it is falling behind most thermostat s have a 3 degree deadband if they fall 3 degrees or more at a time after running for so long then it will bring on the emergency heat which is located in your inside unit... when it gets really colds and you see this you need to go outside and look is the outside unit still running and is it freezing up on you...also if running check the larger of two pipes make sure the large pipe is hot to touch...based on the description you have given the thermostat is calling for emergency heat but for some reason is not bringing it on or there is a problem with the emergency heat.... hope this helps out some

What type of system do you have, Heat pumps have an AUX setting if that not comming on depending on where you live it may not keep up on its own. A gas furnace should give no trobble check you normal stuff like the filter and it is not on a program and changing over around the time you check it.

Why wouldnt my heater be pumping heat through my house when i have the heat "on" on my thermostat, would this be because my air filter is too clogged? cause this just recently started happening.


Often,yes the filter needs replacement.Air is sucked in through the filter and recycled back to the house.But try checking if the blower fan motor is running fast enough.If not check for a bad blower motor.
