I have split system. Unit outside and other part under the house.
It A/C and Heat unit also. Goodman unit.
I have totaline thermostat p/n p474-0100
last 2 days when I come home heat has been stuck on. The system
outside is not on. But im getting heat. It feels like EH (emergency
heat) is what is on. But on Thermostat is does not show EH on.
Now when I hold bottom O and ^ then it shows the EH on and red light
comes on. Then when i hold buttons again light turns off and EH goes
away but heat is still going. I have already called tech. Just would
like to know what to look for and watch what he is going to be doing.
right now settings for Thermostat is:
Step#2 (display type dual or single) 2
Step#4 (heat pump) on
Step#5 (reversing Valve pofanity) O
Step#7 (Deadband) 2
Step#8 Min Diff heat/cool 2
Step#9 cycles per hour d
Step#10 therm backlight on
Step#11 F or C F
Here is link to manual
In this neck of the woods, with the service call, a generic
sequencer(installed) and sales tax, your looking at a *minimum* of about
$225, thats providing that the sequencer *IS* the problem and is the *ONLY*
problem. After all, I want to have Christmas too.
I can live with that I guess. In last year I had to call them 3 times.
starting to add up, bought house brand new only 4 years old.
capistor, then something under house forgot the name but compasor was
on but not blowing any air in house, then i was low freon. now this!!
my first guess would be that your service company is hosing you. its not
unheard of for a technician to cut the low voltage wire going to the a/c
contactor while servicing your furnace. this ensures him another service
call from you when it warms up, at which time he will cut the low voltage
wire going to your furnace which will ensure him another service call when
it gets cold again. call a different company this time.

The was a video clip a couple years ago. Some folks in California did
a test of the local AC companies. The disconnected one wire, and then
had a woman call a bunch of service companies to see what they
reccomended. One of them aparently cut the coil wire for the
contactor, nice fresh bright cutter marks. They had an instructor from
a local HVAC school check the system each time before they called the
service guy. They got an assortment of reccomended things to do,
repair, install, replace.

You can\'t shout down a troll.
geez nathan, where do you dream up this shit? guilty conscious?
read thru the lines the OP has posted.....
goodman equipment, bottom of the barrel carrier t-stat, numerous
problems on a 4 year new install. can you say cheap, all the way down
Well the problem was Heat sequencer. He said part was $106 and diag
charge $80. But my part was under warranty so part only cost me $55.
so total bill was $135 not too bad i guess. He then check out whole
system, refrigerant, etc...
volts 246 amps 5.6
ent 60f lvg 52f
ent DB 70 LVG DB 112
thats about all i see on work order.
So what all do you think now. Good job or bad job, or time will tell

You were screwed over royally. Ask for all your money back. You should
have gotten a new thermostat. Its almost always the thermostat.
New low voltage wiring too. You dont want those electrons leaking out
all over the place.
