RE CO means Auto Recovery. In my users manual it states:

Hunter's Auto Recovery feature meets the Energy Star guideline for energy efficiency by allowing the heating or cooling system to recover gradually from an energy-saving set-point temperature to a comfort set-point temperature.

Auto Recovery calculates how early to turn your system back on. so that the room temperature is already comfortable by the start of the comfort temperature program period. Auto Recovery works in both heat and cool modes.

*When the thermostat is in Auto Recovery mode, the display will alternate "RECO" with time and the program indicator will flash.

*Auto Recovery can be disabled by sliding the Recovery switch on the circuit board to disable. (this is located inside the thermostate)

*Auto Recovery can be cancelers manually if HOLD/RETURN is pressed during the recovery process.

*Auto Recovery will be canceled and change to temporary manual override mode if the set-point is adjusted during the recovery process.



Hope This Helped!!

3 Month baby and need help hooking up thermostat ASAP


The wire colours mean nothing. If your old one didn't have letters or you already disconnected it, you will have to go to the furnace. Under one of the panels there will be a control board to which the thermostat wires connect and this might have the letters printed on it. Trace them back and connect them appropriately.

If you have a furnace that is like mine (a single-stage natural gas one), chances are that R is +24V, C is common, W is heat call, and G is the blower. Y is generally cooling. The furnace could be turned on by connecting R, W, and G together, I suppose, if the above doesn't work... but it won't shut off automatically.

My hunter thermostate keeps flashing a 4 and wont turn on !


hunter thermostats are not the highest quality. on the back of the thermostat there should be a not well identified reset button. You can locate and push this to attempt to fix the problem. Or purchase a new (i would suggest Robertshaw or braeburn) thermostat and install.

Manual or directions


We have the same model. From the manual:
STEP 1: Slide the system switch to the HEAT or COOL position to program the corresponding system
STEP 2: Press PROGRAM to enter program mode. Heat or cool will be displayed on the LCD.
STEP 3: Press the UP or DOWN arrow. The Program hour and AM or PM indicator are flashing. Press to change the hour.
STEP 4: Press PROGRAM to change to the minute position. The current minute will be flashing. Press the UP or DOWN arrow to change the minute.
STEP 5: Press PROGRAM to change to the program temperature. The current temperature will be flashing. Press the UP or DOWN arrow to change the temperature.
STEP 6: Press PROGRAM again to move to the next program number. Repeat Steps 3-5 to change the remaining Weekday and Weekend Programs. [there are a total of 8 programs]
After cycling through all 8 programs, press PROGRAM again to return the display to normal. Press HOLD/RET at any time to exit the Program Mode.

TEMPORARY MANUAL OVERRIDE:
To temporarily change the current set temperature without affecting your program:
  • Press either ARROW and hold for about 1 second to enter the Manual Override Mode. When display flashes, you can release the key.
  • Press the ARROW to change to your desired Temperature
  • Press HOLD/RET to return to normal mode, or wait 15 sections for it to return automatically.
  • The current program number will flash to signify the Temporary Overide.
  • At the next program change time, the Temporary Override is cancelled, and the next program temperature becomes the setpoint temperature.
Hope this is what you need. God Bless.
