my condensor fan for my ac is running while my heat is on.

Resolved Question:

my condensor fan for my ac is running while my heat is on. I know this isnt right but i'm not sure where to start trouble shooting. My first instinct is the control board or the digital thermostat. heil 4-t gas pak 14 yrs old

You can start by disconnecting the Y yellow wire of the control board at unit. If the condenser fan stops you have a problem from there to inside. If it does not you have problems with unit. Check to see if compressor is running also. Can and compressor run at same time. Start with Y terminal first. Rus

The relay that controls your fan is stuck . Get it replaced. It will not hurt fan to run. It is not an emergency. Rus
