There are three types of thermostats:
As you know most technologically advanced solutions, there are several problems that might take place. Most of these troubles don’t call for Expert support and are simple to repair on your own.
All Honeywell thermostats have a special set of codes that correspond to the glitches that occur.
Think how uncomplicated it can be to restore a computer by restarting it. For the most part, correcting a thermostat can be just as easy.
Here is a listing the most encountered Honeywell thermostat problems. These are applicable to the following programmable thermostats:
If the screen is blank on your programmable thermostat, you might need to replace the batteries. If that doesn’t solve the problem or you have a smart thermostat, there could be a wiring problem.
Next, you should check the power is enabled for your furnace or air handler. Make sure the switch close to the indoor system is switched “on”.
Additionally, you should make certain all furnace cabinet or air handler doors/panels are securely secured.
A loose panel may activate the safety switch, which disconnects power to the equipment.
While it’s less common, a blank screen may mean you will need to get a new thermostat.
Check that your thermostat is set to “cool” or “heat,” not “off.”
During warm weather, confirm you set the thermostat beneath the current temperature. When it’s cool, confirm it’s higher. This sounds silly, but we’ve seen it happen a lot of times.
Ensure the power switch by your indoor equipment is in the “on” position. You should also check the cabinet doors or panels are tight on your furnace cabinet or air handler. An unsecured panel can trigger the safety switch, diverting power to the equipment.
Heating or cooling still won’t run? Verify circuit breakers haven’t turned off and that your HVAC equipment isn’t showing error codes.
To start, check your thermostat is set to “cool” or “heat.”
Then, ensure it’s telling the right unit to run. This is usually shown by “cool on,” “heat on” or a picture.
If these words or the icon is blinking, your thermostat is in a five-minute delay status. This feature keeps your system from harmful short cycling. This may happen if your power is interrupted.
