Stat wiring at heat pump

Im putting in a goodman heat pump Aph1424M41AB,with 9..5k heat kit an had a question on stat wiring ..
what i have doesnt seem to match color diagram an wanted to know how to wire it.
There is no yellow wire coming out .I have the green to green fan ,blue to blue-C,,orange to orange ,tan an white together to white ,purple an red to red ..I do not see a yellow wire .....What does the purple one go to ?
Any suggestions on wiring ,an do the brown an white stay together to white stat wire .
THANKS

That's a self contained packaged unit...... correct ?
So you have one cable from the thermostat to the unit.... correct ?
The model number starts with A. That's an Amana...... not a Goodman.

Red and pink don't get connected together.
I need to see the wiring on the bottom of the defrost board..... clearly.

Are you sure that's the right wiring diagram ?
It calls for a VTSB control board. That unit doesn't have it.
The board I see there is a defrost only board

Do you have this board too ?
This is what is shown on the wiring diagram.
This board is for an electronic (ECM) blower motor.

It only has that board in my pic ,no board i see like your 2nd pic ..Yes its possible the cover diagram is not the same ..or correct ..
ill trace the wires bk to the board ..~ an reply .
i wish i had the correct diagram ..Yes the purple does need to be detatched from red...should the brown an whit be seperated too?
Im used to a yellow wire w Amana..
Also can i jumper a ground to heat kil off the incoming green wire ground lug ?

White and brown are the heat strips and can be connected together.
Post a better pic of the defrost board.
The rest I can see.

I'll try to find the exact diagram for you.

TERMINALS to THERMOSTAT
Red R (24V)
Green G (Fan)
Orange O (Rev. Valve)
White W1 (Heat)
Brown W2 (Heat)
Yellow Y (Cool)
Blue C (Common)

Normal Amana/Goodman wiring.
You have a pink instead of yellow. That's what needs to be traced.

There should be an actual ID tag on the outside.
It would have make, model, serial number as well as operating parameters.

Look at above picture. That's what I need.
The wire connections only at the bottom of the defrost board.
Move the wires away from in front of the defrost board and take a closeup.

You had a bunch of pics that weren't needed. I deleted them.
I kept and labeled the one that shows what I needed on the defrost board.

The ID plate has a lot of information on it.
It's either near the refrigerant connections or the high voltage connections.
If you bought it used.... someone removed it to hide information.

How can I confirm the model and serial numbers for my Amana cooling system?
The outdoor unit nameplate is located vertically on the panel next to or above the refrigerant line connection point. Location varies depending on the size and efficiency level of the outdoor equipment.


Thanks for the pics... I'll go over them.

The ID tag is attached to the outside of the unit. Not inside.
If it's not on the outside.... it was removed.

Some labels are paper. Some are Mylar. Some are a foil.
