Let’s get started with the process by determining what type of thermostat your house has.
There are three models of thermostats:
As you’re aware the majority of technologically advanced products, there are regular malfunctions that may happen. Most of these issues don’t require pro help and are simple to solve alone.
All Honeywell thermostats have a unique kind of codes assigned to the issues that occur.
Think how simple it can be to repair a computer by restarting it. In most situations, correcting a thermostat can be just as uncomplicated.
Here is a listing the most reported Honeywell thermostat errors. These are applicable to the following programmable thermostats:
If the display is empty on your programmable thermostat, you might need to put in new batteries. If that doesn’t fix the problem or you use a smart thermostat, there could be a wiring issue.
Next, you should check the power is on for your furnace or air handler. Verify the switch near the indoor unit is switched “up”.
In addition to that, you should make sure all furnace cabinet or air handler doors/panels are sturdily in place.
A loose panel may activate the safety switch, which cuts off power to the equipment.
Infrequently, an empty monitor could indicate you should install a new thermostat.
Make sure that your thermostat is on “cool” or “heat,” not “off.”
During warm weather, verify you set the thermostat lower than the ambient temperature. In the winter, confirm it’s higher. This sounds goofy, but we’ve seen it happen many times.
Ensure the power switch near your indoor equipment is in the “on” position. You should also make sure the cabinet doors or panels are secure on your furnace cabinet or air handler. An unsecured panel can trigger the safety switch, stopping electricity to the system.
Heating or cooling still won’t start? Verify circuit breakers haven’t flipped and that your HVAC equipment isn’t experiencing error codes.
First, check your thermostat is set to “cool” or “heat.”
Then, make sure it’s telling the appropriate equipment to turn on. This is typically demonstrated by “cool on,” “heat on” or an illustration.
If these words or the icon is flashing, your thermostat is in a five-minute delay state. This mode keeps your unit from harmful short cycling. This can happen if you lose power.
