Let’s get started with the process by determining what model of thermostat your house has.
There are three models of thermostats:
As is the case with the majority of technologically advanced things, there are regular problems that can happen. Most of these issues don’t need pro support and are easy to repair by yourself.
Every Honeywell thermostat has a special group of codes matching the glitches that occur.
Think how easy it can be to fix a computer by restarting it. In most situations, diagnosing a thermostat can be just as uncomplicated.
Here is a listing the most common Honeywell thermostat problems. These involve the following programmable thermostats:
If the screen is empty on your programmable thermostat, you might need to install new batteries. If that doesn’t solve the malfunction or you rely on a smart thermostat, there may be a wiring malfunction.
Next, you should check the power is flowing for your furnace or air handler. Verify the switch near the indoor system is switched “up”.
Additionally, you should confirm all furnace cabinet or air handler doors/panels are tightly in place.
A panel that isn’t tight may trigger the safety switch, which cuts off power to the unit.
Infrequently, a clear display might mean you will need to replace your thermostat.
Make sure that your thermostat is switched to “cool” or “heat,” not “off.”
During warm weather, make sure you put the thermostat lower than the room temperature. In the winter, verify it’s higher. This sounds absurd, but we’ve seen it happen lots 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. An unsecured panel can trigger the safety switch, diverting current to the unit.
Heating or cooling still won’t turn on? Make sure circuit breakers haven’t turned off and that your HVAC unit isn’t showing error codes.
To start, confirm your thermostat is on “cool” or “heat.”
Then, make sure it’s telling the correct equipment to turn on. This is typically demonstrated by “cool on,” “heat on” or a picture.
If this set of words or the illustration is pulsing, your thermostat is in a five-minute delay state. This feature keeps your equipment from damaging short cycling. This can happen if you lose power.
