There are three kinds of thermostats:
As you’re aware many technologically advanced products, there are regular problems that may take place. The majority of of these problems don’t require pro help and are easy to repair by yourself.
Every Honeywell thermostat has an exclusive group of codes that correspond to the glitches that occur.
Think how easy it can be to repair a computer by restarting it. For the most part, troubleshooting a thermostat can be just as uncomplicated.
Here is a guide to the most reported Honeywell thermostat problems. These apply to the following programmable thermostats:
If the display is empty on your programmable thermostat, you could need to install new batteries. If that doesn’t solve the issue or you have a smart thermostat, there may be a wiring malfunction.
Next, you should ensure the power is flowing for your furnace or air handler. Confirm the switch by the indoor equipment is in the “on” position.
In addition to that, you should make sure all furnace cabinet or air handler doors/panels are tightly in place.
An unsecured panel may trigger the safety switch, which stops power to the equipment.
While it’s less common, a clear screen can mean you should install a new thermostat.
Check that your thermostat is switched to “cool” or “heat,” not “off.”
When it’s hot, make sure you put the thermostat beneath the room temperature. When it’s cool, make sure it’s higher. This sounds silly, but we’ve seen it take place lots of times.
Confirm the power switch close to your indoor system is in the “on” position. You should also comfirm the cabinet doors or panels are tight on your furnace cabinet or air handler. An open panel can trip the safety switch, cutting off electricity to the unit.
Heating or cooling still won’t run? Verify circuit breakers haven’t tripped and that your HVAC equipment isn’t showing error codes.
First, confirm your thermostat is on “cool” or “heat.”
Then, check it’s telling the correct unit to turn on. This is typically shown by “cool on,” “heat on” or a picture.
If this phrase or the picture is blinking, your thermostat is in a five-minute delay status. This feature keeps your system from bad short cycling. This can happen if your power is interrupted.
