Thread: Payne heat pump

  1. #1

    Payne heat pump

    I have a payne HEAT PUMP model# PH10JA048-B. It stopped working last night. I noticed the breaker was tripped. When i went to turn it back on it wouldn't allow me and kept tripping. I checked the disconnect and the whip to the heat pump and it all checked out fine; when i reconnected the whip back to the heat pump it tripped. What could be the problem that would trip the power to the unit? It was installed 8 years ago and the only thing i have had to replace since install has been the capacitor.

    a short in the unit? where would it most likely be, in the relay? there is also a mother board, could that be the issue? is this common with this type of heat pump from payne?

    there's no way to see that unit from here; so, go ahead and call your service contractor to come out.
    It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.

    I don't think that brand matters so much.
