What is error A101, Suction Temperature Sensor Failure?

Error A101 means the heating source defaults to elements due to heat pump temperature sensor malfunction. The following steps can help you check the issue.

  1. Check connections of the wiring and sensors.
  2. Get an Ohm reading on the thermistors (if multimeter is available) (See Ohm chart for correct readings based on ambient temperature).
  3. Check on display by selecting Service>Sensors>If the sensor shows – 40°F, the circuit is open, +250°F indicates the circuit has shorted. Note: To confirm reading, power down the unit and unplug the thermistor from the board. Check Ohm reading. (See ohms chart)
