Heat Pump Outside Unit will not kick on

______________________________________________________________________ The Heat Pump unit works fine for the air, it kicks on like its suppose to; when you switch to heat; the outside unit does not come on … (furnace works with propane/electric); thus we have no heat. Everytime a technician arrives he says it works fine, hands us a bill and leaves; 2 days later the same problem. Any ideas?

Does he not mention what he did? Are you there for the repair? What’s the bill show was done? Replacing fuse and service call?

He came back again and he replaced the thermostat (he said the thermostat we had was the wrong one for the unit, even though its worked fine for 6-8 yrs); and replaced a transformer. The last time I told him it quit working; we got a bill for $250, told them I wasn’t paying it until it worked; he said he would be back to check it again, but never showed. This was supposed to be a reputable company in our area. bubbad “Re(2):Heat Pump Outside Unit will not kick on” , posted Wed 19 Oct 18:45 ______________________________________________________________________ Could be a faulty thermostat, but then again it could be a number of things. You need to have that tech, (or another one) come out and and give your system a thorough checkup, in heatpump mode, backup heat, and defrost cycle. bubbad
