Let’s begin the process by finding out what kind of thermostat your house has.
There are three kinds of thermostats:
As you know many technologically advanced things, there are regular malfunctions that may happen. Most of these problems don’t call for pro help and are simple to repair alone.
Every Honeywell thermostat has an exclusive group of codes matching the malfunctions that happen.
Think how simple it can be to repair a computer by restarting it. In most situations, diagnosing a thermostat can be just as easy.
Here is a listing the most encountered Honeywell thermostat problems. These are applicable to the following programmable thermostats:
If the screen is clear on your programmable thermostat, you may need to install new batteries. If that doesn’t solve the trouble or you use a smart thermostat, there may be a wiring problem.
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 trigger the safety switch, which stops power to the equipment.
While it’s less common, an empty screen might indicate you should install a new thermostat.
Check that your thermostat is on “cool” or “heat,” not “off.”
When it’s hot, verify you put the thermostat below the room temperature. When it’s cold, verify it’s higher. This sounds goofy, but we’ve seen it occur a lot of times.
Confirm the power switch by your indoor equipment is in the “on” position. You should also check the cabinet doors or panels are closed on your furnace cabinet or air handler. An open panel can trigger the safety switch, stopping electricity 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 start, ensure your thermostat is set to “cool” or “heat.”
Then, check it’s telling the right equipment to turn on. 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 stops your equipment from harmful short cycling. This may occur if your power is interrupted.
