Let’s start the process by figuring out what model of thermostat your home has.
There are three models of thermostats:
As you’re aware most technologically advanced products, there are several glitches that may take place. Most of these situations don’t need pro assistance and are simple to solve on your own.
Each Honeywell thermostat has a special group of codes that correspond to the malfunctions that take place.
Think how simple it can be to restore a computer by restarting it. Many times, troubleshooting a thermostat can be just as uncomplicated.
Here are some of the most common Honeywell thermostat problems. These include the following programmable thermostats:
If the monitor is empty 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 problem.
Next, you should make sure the power is on for your furnace or air handler. Verify the switch by the indoor unit is in the “on” position.
In addition to that, you should make sure all furnace cabinet or air handler doors/panels are tightly in place.
A loose panel may activate the safety switch, which cuts off power to the unit.
Infrequently, a blank display might signify you should buy a new thermostat.
Make sure that your thermostat is on “cool” or “heat,” not “off.”
In the summer, verify you schedule the thermostat beneath the current temperature. When it’s cold, make sure it’s higher. This sounds silly, but we’ve seen it take place many times.
Make sure the power switch by your indoor system 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 trip the safety switch, cutting off electricity to the equipment.
System still won’t run? Make sure circuit breakers haven’t flipped and that your HVAC equipment isn’t showing error codes.
First, confirm your thermostat is set to “cool” or “heat.”
Then, make sure it’s calling for the right equipment to run. This is typically demonstrated by “cool on,” “heat on” or a picture.
If these words or the icon is pulsing, your thermostat is in a five-minute delay state. This mode stops your unit from harmful short cycling. This could happen if you lose electricity.
