How to Start a Run Test on an Amana PTAC

A run test is a great way to make sure that every part of your Amana PTAC is working properly. The simple test runs the unit through all functions in a specific order.

To start the run test:

  1. Press and hold the temperature up and down arrows and double tap the heat button. The number 88 will appear on the display.
  2. The unit will then begin the test. The order of events is:
    1. Low Fan Mode
    2. High Fan Mode
    3. Compressor Engage
    4. All lights turn on and low heat mode begins
    5. High heat mode
    6. Off
  3. Test is now complete.

If anything is not working, you will now know which part is bad.

My amana ptac vibrates when running. I had to remove pictures from my wall. Any suggestions on how to fix this problem? Thanks

Was it recently installed? Has it been there a while and the problem is new?
