What does auxillary heat mean?
Optional Information:Make : LuxProModel : PSDH121Already Tried:I tried pushing up and down arrows to reset. I didn't get a manual with this and the online manual doesn't speak about auxillary heat . It seems to lose heat when this appears in the display window
I don"t believe I have another heat source. We live in Texas and have had extremely cold weather. Would this go into this mode to protect the unit? If not, how do I reset that thermostat to come out of auxillary mode? My thermostat is dropping in temperature and it is getting colder in my home.

ok... interesting..OK, do you have a paper clip handy? I want you to fashion a little jumper and pop the thermostat back off so you can see the wires.I want you to touch one end to the R terminal and the other to the W2 terminal and hold it for about 2 minutes and see if the heat comes on. (no you will not get shocked)
ok... this will work for the night..... Set it where you want it to be comfortable... no not 80 if that's what you were thinking...Now a little bubble gum and a shoe lace may keep a helicopter from crashing until it can land but it's not a permanent fix.... You need to go to Home Depot or Lowes or something and get a new thermostat tomorrow.Get one suitable for a heat pump with aux heat. (2stage heat/1 stage cool). I recommend a Honeywell. (this is where you nod your head in agreement and say "I Promise")
