Every Honeywell thermostat has a unique set of codes assigned to the malfunctions that happen.
Think how simple it can be to restore a computer by restarting it. In many instances, troubleshooting a thermostat can be just as uncomplicated.
Here is a listing the most reported Honeywell thermostat issues. These include the following programmable thermostats:
If the monitor is clear on your programmable thermostat, you could need to put in new batteries. If that doesn’t solve the problem or you use a smart thermostat, there could be a wiring problem.
Next, you should check the power is flowing for your furnace or air handler. Make sure the switch near the indoor equipment is switched “up”.
In addition to that, you should make sure all furnace cabinet or air handler doors/panels are sturdily secured.
An unsecured panel may trigger the safety switch, which disconnects power to the equipment.
While it’s less common, a blank screen could signify you need to replace your thermostat.
Make sure that your thermostat is set to “cool” or “heat,” not “off.”
During warm weather, verify you schedule the thermostat beneath the current temperature. When it’s cool, make sure it’s higher. This sounds silly, but we’ve seen it take place many times.
Make sure the power switch close to your indoor equipment is in the “on” position. You should also check the cabinet doors or panels are tight on your furnace cabinet or air handler. An unsecured panel can trip the safety switch, stopping current to the system.
System still won’t run? Make sure circuit breakers haven’t tripped and that your HVAC unit isn’t showing error codes.
To start, verify your thermostat is on “cool” or “heat.”
Then, verify it’s calling for the appropriate equipment to start. This is often shown by “cool on,” “heat on” or an illustration.
If these words or the illustration is flashing, your thermostat is in a five-minute delay mode. This feature stops your system from bad short cycling. This may take place if your power is interrupted.
