Guys I am stumped on this one as for now! We are having ice problems again with this winter storm in LA. Anyways I got up this morning noticed my heat pump was having ice build up due to the weather. I went to t-stat & turned on my emer. Heat my 10 kw pulled in, I set t-stat for 76 degress to get my home as warm as possible before power goes out. Now here is when things seem to be wrong. My heat pack pulled in ran about 5 mins. & kicked back off & t-stat cut fan speed back to 50% & is blowing cold air now. I can bump up a few degrees & will come back on?
Now I no that t-stat is set right but what are the causes for this. My t-stat should not be saying heat on without the heat pump on. It should bring my home to the set temp of 76 degrees & cycle off not do what it is doing. Any ideas?
My system is XR 15 model 4twx030e1000a
Air handler model 4tee3f039a1000a
Heat pack bayhtr1410brkc
T-stat trane 802 (honneywell)
