Ours was leaking water. After taking the covers off,cleaning it,and draining all the water out, I started getting the same problem with the light coming on every 7 minutes. I actually added some water to the system till it was too full and then drained it out through the plug. The light still came on every 7 minutes until I turned the unit off and then unplugged it for a few minutes. I plugged it back in, turned it on and reset the temperature. It seemed to reset itself and kept running normally. BB

Hello Tom ,   I'm sure i can help you with this.... I work on these units everyday. unfortuneately im not there to put my hands on it but i will explain as clearly as possible.    The most common problem I tend to find with these units is that the control board  and indoor fan motor tends to go bad in these quite often.  If you put the unit in A/C MODE  and/or Fan mode and set it to high if it will not speed up from low , then your problem could be in a couple different places.   1st.  The bearings in the fan motor could be wearing down ,  2nd  The Control board could be bad  in that its not telling the fan motor to speed up.     

 

And when you tell me that the compressor doesnt run in that mode at any given time..... which the electric heat and heat pump itself works together so that when the load is really tough  that the heat pump doesnt over work and in general saves life on your compressor.      

 

Solution is this.

 

Take your indoor fan motor off and and drill out the rivits  and it pulls apart easy, and replace the bearings and grease them.

 

ALIGNMENT OF THE FAN IS A MUST.   doesnt cost much at all the fix this. Just a little time and bearings

 

Replace the Board in the control box

 

 

This my friend will definetly solve your problem.    These problems i see everyday with these same units.

If this is a heat pump system it is possible that your fan blade is hitting ice on your condenser coil.

SOURCE: GE zoneline heat not working

Is it not heating in heat pump mode, emergency heat mode, or both? The default heat mode on the AZ55 is heat pump. Does the fan blow in heat mode? It's difficult to diagnose a heat pump with the information given. Since you say the unit cools, it's not a compressor problem. Possible problems could be reversing valve, thermostat, control board, or switch, if it is in heat pump mode. If it is running in emergency heat mode, problem could be switch, thermostat, control board, or heating element.

To determine if the unit is in HP or emergency heat mode, have a qualified technician check the auxiliary control switches. There are 2 sets of these. The set on the left, switch marked ALL I2R. If it is down, the unit is in HP mode, up is resistance heat. Hope this helps some.

SOURCE: 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.

Tip

Replacing a condenser fan in centralized A/C


On of the common problem with centralized A/C unit is a bad condenser fan. I have known people who called an ac technician to fix their ac because of a bad condenser fan and suggested replacing the whole unit! Costing them a lot of money when all it needed was a 50 dollars condenser fan! If the condenser fan do not run or it runs only when you give it a push, it'sbad. You will also notice that it is vey hot. When replacing a condenser fan you may want to replace the starting capacitor too. Replacing a condenser fan is not very hard, just make sure that the power to the ac unit is turned off at the breaker box. Confirm that the wires are not live by using a meter or an ac tester. The fan motor are held with brakets sometimes just screws. Most fan you can buy that has reversible rotation by just reversing the plug. Make sure it is blowing upwards. If not reverse the rotation. So if you notice that the unit is not putting out cold enough air and you went outside and noticed the compressor running but not the fan, turn off the AC right away and do not use it untill the fan is replaced. Running the unit with a defective fan can damage the compressor caused by overheating.

The difference between the heat pump and condenser


Well...they are kinda the same. The condenser is where the refrigerant is condensed from a gas to a liquid. When in AC mode this happens outside at the AC unit. (You ever put your hand over a running AC unit in the summer? Feels warm!). When in Heat Pump mode the process is reversed. Instead of condensing the gas to liquid outside (which creates heat) the condensing happens inside and helps warm the building up (with the help of the fan of course). So essential the condenser is where the gas is condensed into a liquid, which creates heat. A heat pump can reverse the direction of the flow and cause this condensing to happen either outside or inside.
This is a very watered down version of what happens but I hope this is sufficient for what you are asking.

Hummm. A bit difficult to solve this problem. Seems like the condenser outside is not working, I mean the fan of the condenser. Looks like you have a wall A/C and a wall A/C always have condensers outside the house and near the A/C. Have you checked if the fan is spinning? I don't think the compressor is at fault but check it anyway. You should be able to hear the compressor running either in the wall unit or in the outside condenser housing. The only heat you should feel is from the condenser itself. If you blows warm air, that means the fan is working, if not that means the fan is not working. But don't be confused with the fan not working because in winter time sometimes the fan is not working and some times it does. As I said, it's a difficult problem to solve but at least start with checking the situation with the fan in the condenser.

I have a rth6350d it worked fine until today when i change it from ac to heat now it runs for a sec and then the auxillary heat comes on under the number and i get nothing.


seems like the reversing valve cut out the condensing unit. it may be shorted. if not, something else shorted. did you check the main power fuses? if condenser is cut out it will go into resistive heat.

Make sure your fan clutch is working. No fan, no cooling of the condenser, no heat dissipation, no cold air. Start the truck and make sure you feel air movement, a lot.

My condensor fan and compressor on my Carrier AC (Model# 38ckc036350) stopped working, so I replaced my capacitor and they both work fine now. The problem is my house won't cool down. There is c


Often after a repair has been made, the air conditioner will take hours to readjust back to normal. When the system has been off for to long, not only does the heat in the house rise, but so does the humidity, which has to be pulled out of the air first before it really starts dropping in temp. You could have a low charge on refrigerant, dirty filters, etc. More than once I have ran into things that were just coincidence after a repair that showed up. Since you just replaced the capacitor, I would make sure the fan motor is turning in the right direction and there is nice air flow coming out of the condenser, some times if one wire is wrong, it can cause it to spin backwards, which will work, but just barely. The air needs to be pulled through the coils, not pushed. Hope this helps!
