SOURCE: reset button keeps popping out

most common cause for heater overheat, and reset, is lint build up in the exhaust line, reduces air flow, the air gets hotter than designed, and resets pop.
some lint always gets past the screen and lodges in the fan and ducting and vent hood.
examine and clear the above, all the way to the wall, and problem should cease.

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.

Sounds as though the power cord reset switch might be bad and need to be replaced. If not, then there is a short somewhere in the system. Do an ohms test on the switch to determine if it is bad.

If you examine the body of the camera there is a tiny reset - which is recessed into the body. To access it you need somthing such as a bent out paper clip wire.

Hope this helps. Remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

The h1 means you have a voltage problem. Check your voltage to the unit.

If capilary tube choke so what will do effect in refrigerator compressor?

the compressor will go to a high head pressure and switch off or burn out
best have a technician check it out
blockages in the tube are rare so check for other problems like a failed start run capacitor for the compressor

Air conditioning only blows cold air.

Can you hear the blend door moving when you change the temp from cold to hot or vice versa? If not, then you need new blend door actuator. Also check the heater core for any blockage. (2 ways to the car til normal temp, and turn on the heat and feel the hoses by the firewall...if one is hotter than other, there is a blockage inside the heater core. Or disconnect both hoses at firewall, and put garden hose in one of those 2 open tubes and turn on the water...good flow or weak flow coming out of heater core tube? Weak flow means blockage) If there is a blockage, time to get new one.

My Hotpoint tvf770 starts but does not appear to heat and it stops after a few minutes. I have checked the filter and exhaust tube for blockages, both clear.

Suspect a broken/burned off wire to the heater element, or 'open circuit' of the heater element, or thermostat fault
