a. Turn the ON/OFF switch to OFF position.
b. Simultaneously depress and hold the MODE and ZONE
push-buttons while turning the ON/OFF switch to ON.
FF should appear in the LCD display until the MODE
and ZONE push-buttons are released.

When they are running go out and feel the cover outside and if they are HOT and sounds like a jet plane then they are using propane.

It seems some are confused by your use of the terms "axillary heater system", and "Auxiliary mode" in your questions and descriptions, (I know I am).
Can you please explain exactly what the "axillary heater system" and/or "auxiliary mode" you're talking about is/are?

OK Just to get it right on my end, when I flip the switch to (HEAT=ELECTRIC) my roof top heat pumps come on AND my propane furnace comes on at the same time 30degs or 60degs, no difference. If I go to HEAT only my propane furnace will run not the pumps.
The Auxiliary Heater is what I thought he was talking about when it switched over from electric to propane. My bad if I call it Auxiliary.

I don't think I have seen an answer to this question yet. Whether or not it is 60 or 30 out, what is the thermostat set at compared to ambiant temperature when you turn it on. With my unit if the ambient temp is more than 3 degrees lower than what the thermostat is set both my heat pump and furnace will come in even if it is just set on electric. When it gets up to temperature both will shut off. Then the heat pump alone will attempt to keep the temp. If the temp falls more than 3 degrees and the heat pump can not keep up, the furnace will come back on. Hope this helps.
