Let’s get started with the process by finding out what type of thermostat your home has.
There are three models of thermostats:
As is the case with most technologically advanced products, there are regular problems that might occur. Many of these troubles don’t call for professional help and are simple to fix on your own.
Every Honeywell thermostat has a special set of codes assigned to the malfunctions that happen.
Think how easy 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 apply to the following programmable thermostats:
If the screen is blank on your programmable thermostat, you might need to replace the batteries. If that doesn’t solve the malfunction or you use a smart thermostat, there might be a wiring malfunction.
Next, you should make sure the power is on for your furnace or air handler. Verify the switch by the indoor equipment is switched “on”.
In addition to that, you should make certain all furnace cabinet or air handler doors/panels are tightly fastened.
A panel that isn’t tight may activate the safety switch, which stops power to the system.
Infrequently, an empty display can indicate you will need to get a new thermostat.
Check that your thermostat is set to “cool” or “heat,” not “off.”
During warm weather, confirm you set the thermostat lower than the current temperature. When it’s cool, confirm it’s higher. This sounds goofy, but we’ve seen it occur many times.
Make sure the power switch close to 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. A loose panel can trip the safety switch, diverting power to the equipment.
Unit still won’t start? Confirm circuit breakers haven’t turned off and that your HVAC unit isn’t displaying error codes.
To begin, make sure your thermostat is switched to “cool” or “heat.”
Then, ensure it’s signaling the appropriate equipment to run. This is typically shown by “cool on,” “heat on” or an icon.
If these words or the illustration is flashing, your thermostat is in a five-minute delay status. This mode keeps your system from damaging short cycling. This could take place if you lose power.
