Defrost mode on heat pump.


Why is your heat pump running for 90 minutes straight, at 50 degree ambient temperatures?

Would the wire from the defrost control board be considered the power source?

W2 from defrost control is what turns on the aux heat during a defrost call. All you need to do is find that wire, cut it and put one side to the top and the other side to the bottom. You are making it seem more difficult than it is.
