Think how easy it can be to repair a computer by restarting it. In most situations, diagnosing a thermostat can be just as uncomplicated.
Here is a guide to the most reported Honeywell thermostat issues. These apply to the following programmable thermostats:
If the monitor is clear on your programmable thermostat, you may need to put in new batteries. If that doesn’t take care of the problem or you have a smart thermostat, there may be a wiring issue.
Next, you should ensure the power is flowing for your furnace or air handler. Make sure the switch near the indoor unit is in the “on” position.
Also, you should confirm all furnace cabinet or air handler doors/panels are tightly secured.
A panel that isn’t tight may trigger the safety switch, which disconnects power to the equipment.
Less frequently, a clear monitor could signify you will need to install a new thermostat.
Make sure that your thermostat is switched to “cool” or “heat,” not “off.”
When it’s hot, verify you schedule the thermostat below the current temperature. When it’s cold, make sure it’s higher. This sounds absurd, but we’ve seen it take place many times.
Confirm the power switch near 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 unsecured panel can activate the safety switch, diverting current to the unit.
Unit still won’t start? Make sure circuit breakers haven’t flipped and that your HVAC system isn’t experiencing error codes.
First, check your thermostat is switched to “cool” or “heat.”
Then, verify it’s signaling the correct system to start. This is typically shown by “cool on,” “heat on” or an illustration.
