1)Turn control on to ensure annunciator data and light are present. If data and light are present, continue to next step. If data and light are not present, see Sec. 5.1.

2)Depress MODE switch to activate annunciator light.

3)Simultaneously depress the bottom two buttons (temperature UP and DOWN) and hold.

4)While holding these buttons down, depress the MODE button once and release.

5)Release the two buttons previously held down.

6)Depress the MODE button once again.

i type slowly , i was composing an answer to the last email, when this one came in. no!! it did not work.
when i first torn 'on' no lights come on 'til i press 'mode'
i then follow your 'reset' instructions and nothing changes, when i press mode repeatedly it goes from 'off'
to 'fan only' to 'cool' and back to 'off'

Customer reply replied 5 months ago

'mode' button for the third time the light goes off, and subsequently the sequence remains unchanged,

HVAC Technician: HVAC Guru, HVAC TECH replied 5 months ago

Well it is 11:10pm where I am at, let me see if another tech can help you with this issue as I can not guarrantee you will get this fixed tonight nor can work for free all night long if this does not get fixed. This is a complicated Heatpump Duo system. Stand by for another tech please do not reply here as it will only delay assistance.

24 hour service is unacceptable to me, i was in the middle of a long thread with a technician who had been
so far unable to solve my problem, and then i received an email to say the system was down or something, seems very convenient, i hope there will be no charge for this totally useless [so far] service, no $5, or$44
would still love to get help, temperature going down below freezing tonight, i'm cold!!!

This stopped working in November 2017. Dealer found Evaporator coil leaking and replaced it. Paid for labor to do it.How ever November thru April we mostly used heater. In May we turned thermostat to cool. After few days it stopped working. Called the dealer. They came and looked at it and found that high pressure switch on condenser coil is not working.
