I understand that the thermostat leads must be connected to its proper function common / fan/ heat 1/ heat2/ cool/fan etc... I think I know how to read amp draw to determine if its possibly a bad compressor. The thing runs cold when the therm. is calling for heat and it runs hot when the therm. is calling for cool ...in the mean time the emergancy heat indicator light stays on. I thought she might be able to save some money if its nothing major. My next thought is just to suggest she buy the same make and model thermostat and switch them out if that fixes the problem the work is done ...if it dosnt ...return the thermostat back to the store and assume that its crossed wires some where.
