Heat Pump Troubleshooting Chart

If your heat pump isn’t cooling or heating as appropriate, always start by checking the thermostat and ensure it is set to the correct setting. If it is, adjust it 2-4 degrees above the room temperature. If the fan doesn’t kick on check the fuses and breakers. Flip the circuit breaker switch to the closed position and/ or replace the fuse, and if that proved to be the issue, be sure to discover the cause of the overload. A poor connection, shorted controller board, or even a seized blower motor could be at fault. If the breakers and fuses appear to be in good order, the wiring to your heat pump could be worn-out or faulty, which will require repairs, if the connection is just loose, tighten it up. If the fan is operating and the cool settings are not in accordance with the temperature of the room, warm air might be coming out of the vents when the thermostat is set to emergency heating. Check to see if the thermostat is set to 5 degrees above room temperature. If you begin to feel the warm air, the outdoor unit is the problem and if you don’t feel the warm air the thermostat or air handler are more than likely defective. Presuming the outdoor unit is to blame, reset the thermostat to normal from the emergency heating, wait for approximately 10-15 minutes and check the unit for frost buildup on the coils. If there is frost, the defroster or control module is faulty or the refrigerant is low, in which case, a professional is required. In the even the coils are frost free, asses the debris around the unit, including object clutter, grass, weeds, or bushes encroaching, or dirt and debris. If this is the issue, clean off the filth, manicure the vegetation, and remove the clutter.
