Let’s start the process by figuring out what model of thermostat your home has.
There are three models of thermostats:
As you know many technologically advanced products, there are regular malfunctions that may take place. Most of these troubles don’t require Expert support and are simple to fix by yourself.
Each Honeywell thermostat has a unique group of codes that correspond to the troubles that take place.
Think how uncomplicated it can be to repair a computer by restarting it. Many times, diagnosing a thermostat can be just as simple.
Here is a listing the most encountered Honeywell thermostat problems. These are applicable to the following programmable thermostats:
If the display is clear on your programmable thermostat, you could need to get new batteries. If that doesn’t take care of the trouble or you have a smart thermostat, there might be a wiring issue.
Next, you should make sure the power is on for your furnace or air handler. Confirm the switch by the indoor system is in the “on” position.
Also, you should confirm all furnace cabinet or air handler doors/panels are tightly secured.
A loose panel may trip the safety switch, which stops power to the equipment.
Less frequently, a blank screen might indicate you should replace your thermostat.
Ensure that your thermostat is set to “cool” or “heat,” not “off.”
In the summer, verify you schedule the thermostat lower than the room temperature. When it’s cold, confirm it’s higher. This sounds goofy, but we’ve seen it take place lots of times.
Ensure the power switch near 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. An open panel can activate the safety switch, diverting electricity to the equipment.
Unit still won’t turn on? Confirm circuit breakers haven’t flipped and that your HVAC system isn’t displaying error codes.
First, confirm your thermostat is switched to “cool” or “heat.”
Then, check it’s calling for the correct system to run. This is usually indicated by “cool on,” “heat on” or an illustration.
If these words or the illustration is blinking, your thermostat is in a five-minute delay mode. This feature stops your equipment from damaging short cycling. This can occur if you lose electricity.
