    Auxiliary Heat Will Not Shut Off

    I've got a Goodman heat pump unit with an added auxiliary heating coil that will not shut off. I've disconnected the thermostat and it continues running. The only way I can shut it down is by turning the breaker off. I am guessing a relay is stuck "on". Any ideas?

    Goodman model ARPF182416AA

    Thanks in advance for any assistance that can be provided.

    No DIY here, so time to call in a professional.

    Sounds like a simple fix, but you never know.

    New install, if so call the Installing Contractor as the usual labor warranty is one year. Out of a labor warranty call for service, they tell me this is not a DIY site.

    If you registered your system initially you should have a 10/10 parts and compressor warranty. If your system never got registered then you have a 5/5 manufacturered warranty. If parts need to be replaced, you may or may not have to pay for it, depending on the parts warranty period.

    Unit was installed many years ago. I've shut the breakers off and removed the service panel and found a part called a "heat sequencer" that appears to control the heating element. Y'all think this is the likely culprit?

    What do you think it likely is then? I'm not an a/c guy so could use some help.

    I think you are correct in a kind of general-theory sense.

    Does the indoor blower continue to run along with the auxiliary heating coil? Or is it just the heating coil which reminds on?

    The conventional view serves to protect us from the painful job of thinking.

    Yes, both the blower and heating element run continuously. I also can set the a/c on and the condenser will turn on but the heating element will run as well.
