Heat Pump T Stat Question


Daughter ccalled and said the Tstat was displaying a "flame and snowflake".

From what google told me its in lockout mode. Is something going on that I should call a tech out?

Thanks,

Ed

Probably. can't tell you much with the limited info. I would reset it once, and see what it does.

What more do you want? Are you talking pressures or equipment?

Thanks

Brand and model number of tstat. Same for equipment.

While line pressures and temps would help. I figured you didn't have them to post.

If its flashing, its in lock out to prevent the compressor from short cycling.

If its not flashing. turn off the power to the indoor unit for a minute. then turn back on. If snowflake and flame come back on and are not flashing. Time for a new stat.


PS: If its powered by batteries, change them.
