Amana Heating & Cooling - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support
I know this is late but I had to add a solution to this problem since I had the exact same problem and was able to solve it. The probelm is not your control board. On these units, the heat pump compressor will not kick in unless the temperature you set on the control panel is within 2-1/4 degrees (or 4 degrees depending on your unit model. Otherwise, the unit locks out the compressor until the electric heat coil bring the indoor temperature up to that level - and then will switch the compressor back on for heat pump operation. So the problem is not the control panel or the compressor, it the electric heat coil. The coil has two manual limit switches on it that may be tripped and should be checked. The coil can be easily accessed by shutting down the power, removing 4 screws around the air outlet, pushing the screen up and sliding the panel out the top. The power wires can remain in place while the limit switches are reset. Hope it works.

Formula to calculate rating of capacitors in
It's not fixed formula, but as per basic rule, easy method tocalculate for motor capacitor.
(2650 X full load amps) divided by supply voltage(mentionedin capacitor)= MFD. (Plus or minus 10% to 15%)
Ex: 1 Tr which gives full load amps of 6 amps (2650 X 6)=15900 divided by 240(VAC)volts=66.25MFD
(10% to 15% plus or minus) You can fix 56.32 mfd or 76.18mfd
So, you can go in between 56.32 mfd and 76.18 mfd.
If you calculate of 440VAC capacitor, it will be 36 mfd.
Hope, it will be helpful . Thanks.

Replacing an amana mercury thermostat with honeywell programmable. Old wires are y1,w1,w2,g,rc/rh. Have y1 to y, w1 to o/b, w2 to aux, r to r, g to g. Now outside will not shut off when heat is on.
What is -the outside?
Heat pump, gas, electric heat combination?
You may need to back track, double check the Honeywell configuration jumper or software settings for your type of heating used.
