Think how simple it can be to repair a computer by restarting it. Many times, troubleshooting a thermostat can be just as uncomplicated.
Here is a guide to the most encountered Honeywell thermostat errors. These apply to the following programmable thermostats:
If the screen is clear on your programmable thermostat, you could need to get new batteries. If that doesn’t solve the problem or you use a smart thermostat, there might be a wiring issue.
Next, you should make sure the power is enabled for your furnace or air handler. Confirm the switch by the indoor unit is switched “up”.
In addition to that, you should make sure all furnace cabinet or air handler doors/panels are sturdily fastened.
An unsecured panel may trip the safety switch, which cuts off power to the unit.
Less frequently, a blank display might signify you should get a new thermostat.
Check that your thermostat is set to “cool” or “heat,” not “off.”
During warm weather, make sure you schedule the thermostat beneath the room temperature. When it’s cold, confirm it’s higher. This sounds goofy, but we’ve seen it occur a lot of times.
Make sure the power switch near your indoor system is in the “on” position. You should also check the cabinet doors or panels are closed on your furnace cabinet or air handler. An unsecured panel can trip the safety switch, stopping electricity to the equipment.
Unit still won’t start? Make sure circuit breakers haven’t flipped and that your HVAC equipment isn’t displaying error codes.
To begin, confirm your thermostat is switched to “cool” or “heat.”
Then, verify it’s signaling the right system to run. This is typically demonstrated by “cool on,” “heat on” or an icon.
If this set of words or the picture is pulsing, your thermostat is in a five-minute delay mode. This mode keeps your unit from damaging short cycling. This can happen if your power is interrupted.
