Let’s start the process by figuring out what type of thermostat your house has.
There are three models of thermostats:
As is the case with many technologically advanced things, there are several problems that can happen. Many of these problems don’t require pro help and are easy to fix by yourself.
Every Honeywell thermostat has a unique kind of codes assigned to the glitches that happen.
Think how uncomplicated it can be to restore a computer by restarting it. In most situations, troubleshooting a thermostat can be just as simple.
Here is a listing the most reported Honeywell thermostat errors. These are applicable to the following programmable thermostats:
If the monitor is empty on your programmable thermostat, you might need to get new batteries. If that doesn’t solve the problem or you rely on a smart thermostat, there could be a wiring malfunction.
Next, you should check the power is enabled for your furnace or air handler. Verify the switch near the indoor system is switched “up”.
Also, you should confirm all furnace cabinet or air handler doors/panels are sturdily secured.
An unsecured panel may trigger the safety switch, which disconnects power to the unit.
While it’s less common, an empty monitor may indicate you need to install a new thermostat.
Check that your thermostat is switched to “cool” or “heat,” not “off.”
In the summer, confirm you set the thermostat beneath the room temperature. When it’s cold, verify it’s higher. This sounds silly, but we’ve seen it occur lots of times.
Make sure the power switch close to your indoor system is in the “on” position. You should also comfirm the cabinet doors or panels are tight on your furnace cabinet or air handler. An open panel can trip the safety switch, diverting electricity to the equipment.
System still won’t turn on? Verify circuit breakers haven’t turned off and that your HVAC system isn’t experiencing error codes.
To start, make sure your thermostat is set to “cool” or “heat.”
Then, check it’s signaling the right unit to start. This is usually demonstrated by “cool on,” “heat on” or an icon.
If these words or the icon is flashing, your thermostat is in a five-minute delay status. This feature keeps your equipment from harmful short cycling. This could happen if you lose power.
