Think how uncomplicated it can be to repair a computer by restarting it. For the most part, troubleshooting a thermostat can be just as simple.
Here is a guide to the most encountered Honeywell thermostat problems. These include the following programmable thermostats:
If the display is blank on your programmable thermostat, you may need to put in new batteries. If that doesn’t fix the trouble or you rely on a smart thermostat, there may be a wiring malfunction.
Next, you should check the power is enabled for your furnace or air handler. Confirm the switch close to the indoor system is in the “on” position.
Also, you should make certain all furnace cabinet or air handler doors/panels are sturdily fastened.
A panel that isn’t tight may trip the safety switch, which cuts off power to the unit.
Infrequently, a clear monitor may mean you need to replace your thermostat.
Check that your thermostat is set to “cool” or “heat,” not “off.”
In the summer, confirm you put the thermostat below the current temperature. When it’s cool, make sure it’s higher. This sounds absurd, but we’ve seen it happen a lot of times.
Make sure the power switch close to your indoor equipment is in the “on” position. You should also check the cabinet doors or panels are closed on your furnace cabinet or air handler. A loose panel can activate the safety switch, cutting off power to the equipment.
System still won’t turn on? Verify circuit breakers haven’t turned off and that your HVAC unit isn’t experiencing error codes.
To start, verify your thermostat is on “cool” or “heat.”
Then, check it’s telling the appropriate unit to run. This is often demonstrated by “cool on,” “heat on” or an illustration.
If this set of words or the illustration is pulsing, your thermostat is in a five-minute delay status. This setting protects your equipment from damaging short cycling. This could take place if you lose power.
