Welcome to the forums.

Ahhhh...a thread of your own
If we work on two different problems in one thread everyone becomes confused.

Did you change something..... like the thermostat or any related wiring ?
The orange wire gets its 24vac directly from the thermostat when the heat pump is on in air conditioning mode. When in heat mode..... the orange will not be powered.
