Question about Honeywell CT87B ROUND HEATING&COOLING MECHANICAL THERMOSTAT - WHITE Heater
Replaced the thermostat and the heat will not come on. it onlys has to wires. trying to find out why it won't come on.
if you cross the two wires and you see a slight spark and heat comes on, then the problem is in the thermostat, if not then problem is at furnace it self.

the two wires are hooked to the baseplate at the R terminal and the W terminal. there may be a switch somewhere on thermostat for electric or gas heat. make sure its in gas mode. make sure batteries are fresh and put in correctly in regards to polarity. make sure furnace is on when doing any settings with the thermostat. make sure themostat is set to "heat". make sure themostat is calling for heat (turn way up to be sure its doing that) . check the troubleshooting guide that came with the new thermostat.

You need a specific thermostat for a Wall Furnace it is a Millivolt Thermostat and not a 24v standard thermostat....usually it will work anyway however if the powerpile (generator produces millivolts from the pilot light) is weak it may not be producing enough...or the Pilot light may be dirty and lazy...won't produce enough millivolts ...or you can have bad or dirty contacts or connections....or a combination of any of the above.....a 24v Thermostat and particularly a non-mercury thermostat has too much resistance in it for a millivolt system....as your Wall Furnace (other than the fan) runs on less than 1 volt
