Let’s get started with the process by finding out what model of thermostat your home has.
There are three types of thermostats:
As you’re aware many technologically advanced solutions, there are regular glitches that may occur. Most of these problems don’t call for pro help and are easy to fix alone.
Each Honeywell thermostat has an exclusive group of codes matching the malfunctions that occur.
Think how simple it can be to restore a computer by restarting it. Many times, diagnosing a thermostat can be just as easy.
Here is a guide to the most encountered Honeywell thermostat problems. These are applicable to the following programmable thermostats:
If the display is clear on your programmable thermostat, you may need to install new batteries. If that doesn’t take care of the trouble or you use a smart thermostat, there may be a wiring issue.
Next, you should ensure the power is enabled 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.
An unsecured panel may activate the safety switch, which stops power to the equipment.
Infrequently, an empty display might mean you should install a new thermostat.
Check that your thermostat is on “cool” or “heat,” not “off.”
In the summer, verify you put the thermostat below the current temperature. When it’s cold, verify it’s higher. This sounds goofy, but we’ve seen it happen a lot of times.
Confirm the power switch by your indoor equipment is in the “on” position. You should also make sure the cabinet doors or panels are closed on your furnace cabinet or air handler. A loose panel can activate the safety switch, diverting power to the system.
Heating or cooling still won’t start? Verify circuit breakers haven’t turned off and that your HVAC unit isn’t showing error codes.
To begin, verify your thermostat is switched to “cool” or “heat.”
Then, check it’s calling for the right equipment to run. This is typically shown by “cool on,” “heat on” or an illustration.
If this phrase or the picture is pulsing, your thermostat is in a five-minute delay state. This setting keeps your equipment from bad short cycling. This can happen if you lose electricity.
