Think how simple it can be to repair a computer by restarting it. Many times, correcting a thermostat can be just as uncomplicated.
Here is a listing the most reported Honeywell thermostat problems. These involve the following programmable thermostats:
If the display is empty on your programmable thermostat, you might need to install new batteries. If that doesn’t take care of the issue or you use a smart thermostat, there may be a wiring issue.
Next, you should make sure the power is enabled for your furnace or air handler. Make sure the switch by the indoor equipment is switched “up”.
Also, you should make sure all furnace cabinet or air handler doors/panels are tightly fastened.
A loose panel may trigger the safety switch, which stops power to the equipment.
While it’s less common, a clear display might indicate you need to buy a new thermostat.
Ensure that your thermostat is on “cool” or “heat,” not “off.”
In the summer, make sure you put the thermostat beneath the ambient temperature. In the winter, verify it’s higher. This sounds goofy, but we’ve seen it occur a lot of times.
Make sure the power switch by 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 trigger the safety switch, cutting off electricity to the equipment.
System still won’t run? Confirm circuit breakers haven’t flipped and that your HVAC equipment isn’t displaying error codes.
To start, ensure your thermostat is switched to “cool” or “heat.”
Then, ensure it’s signaling the correct unit to turn on. This is typically shown by “cool on,” “heat on” or an icon.
If these words or the illustration is pulsing, your thermostat is in a five-minute delay state. This feature stops your equipment from damaging short cycling. This may take place if you lose power.
