heat questions and PROBLEMS

question......with an electric heat pump,(central heat and air) should the outside fan (condensor fan?) be running? (to get heat)
would a low refrigerant charge keep it from running?(heating)
the blower fan runs, but I have no heat. Can something be jumped to get the outdoor fan running without hurting the unit until I can get a pro out? thanks for anything!

Wink

Have him put in some Dye tel or fluorescent dye now. It will help find the leak before it gets to cold. If not you will have to go to EME like said
