Let’s get started with the process by figuring out what kind of thermostat your residence has.
There are three models of thermostats:
As you’re aware most technologically advanced things, there are common malfunctions that may occur. Many of these troubles don’t require pro help and are easy to solve by yourself.
Each Honeywell thermostat has a unique set of codes matching the malfunctions that take place.
Think how easy it can be to fix a computer by restarting it. For the most part, correcting a thermostat can be just as simple.
Here are some of the most common Honeywell thermostat problems. These include the following programmable thermostats:
If the display is blank on your programmable thermostat, you might need to replace the batteries. If that doesn’t solve the malfunction or you have a smart thermostat, there could be a wiring problem.
Next, you should ensure the power is flowing for your furnace or air handler. Confirm the switch near the indoor equipment is switched “on”.
In addition to that, you should make sure all furnace cabinet or air handler doors/panels are sturdily in place.
An unsecured panel may trigger the safety switch, which disconnects power to the unit.
Less frequently, an empty monitor could mean you need to replace your thermostat.
Make sure that your thermostat is set to “cool” or “heat,” not “off.”
When it’s hot, confirm you schedule the thermostat below the ambient temperature. In the winter, verify it’s higher. This sounds absurd, but we’ve seen it take place a lot of times.
Ensure the power switch close to your indoor unit is in the “on” position. You should also check the cabinet doors or panels are closed on your furnace cabinet or air handler. An unsecured panel can trigger the safety switch, cutting off electricity to the system.
Unit still won’t run? Confirm circuit breakers haven’t tripped and that your HVAC unit isn’t showing error codes.
To begin, ensure your thermostat is set to “cool” or “heat.”
Then, verify it’s telling the right equipment to run. This is usually demonstrated by “cool on,” “heat on” or an icon.
If this set of words or the illustration is pulsing, your thermostat is in a five-minute delay mode. This mode keeps your unit from damaging short cycling. This could occur if your power is interrupted.
