What should you do when you can’t get your heat pump to turn off? The AC repair experts at Mechanical Technologies share some troubleshooting tips that might help below:
Turn Off the Heat at the Thermostat
If your heat pump won’t turn off, switch the thermostat setting to “Heat Off.” If your thermostat doesn’t have a switch, try setting the thermostat above the current room temperature. This should turn the heat pump off temporarily.
Reset the Circuit Breakers
If changing the temperature settings doesn’t work, you can try resetting the circuit breaker. Just remember that this is only a stop-gap solution. If, after switching it back on, you still can’t shut your heat pump down, you’ll need to have an air conditioner service company inspect it for any malfunctioning components.
What could be preventing your heat pump from shutting down? We’ve listed the possible causes below:
Keep in mind that heat pumps have sensitive electronic components, so if you suspect your heat pump is malfunctioning, you should call an experienced contractor as soon as possible.
