Every Honeywell thermostat has a unique kind of codes matching the problems that happen.
Think how uncomplicated it can be to restore a computer by restarting it. In many instances, diagnosing a thermostat can be just as easy.
Here is a guide to the most common Honeywell thermostat issues. These are applicable to the following programmable thermostats:
If the monitor is blank on your programmable thermostat, you could need to put in new batteries. If that doesn’t fix the issue or you rely on a smart thermostat, there might be a wiring problem.
Next, you should make sure the power is enabled for your furnace or air handler. Verify the switch by the indoor equipment is switched “on”.
Additionally, you should confirm all furnace cabinet or air handler doors/panels are sturdily in place.
A panel that isn’t tight may trigger the safety switch, which stops power to the equipment.
Less frequently, an empty screen can mean you should buy a new thermostat.
Check that your thermostat is set to “cool” or “heat,” not “off.”
When it’s hot, verify you put the thermostat beneath the room temperature. When it’s cool, verify it’s higher. This sounds absurd, but we’ve seen it happen many times.
Confirm the power switch close to your indoor unit 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 activate the safety switch, stopping electricity to the equipment.
Unit still won’t run? Confirm circuit breakers haven’t tripped and that your HVAC unit isn’t showing error codes.
To begin, confirm your thermostat is set to “cool” or “heat.”
Then, check it’s telling the correct equipment to run. This is often demonstrated by “cool on,” “heat on” or an icon.
If these words or the picture is flashing, your thermostat is in a five-minute delay mode. This setting protects your system from bad short cycling. This may happen if your power is interrupted.
