The system type has been incorrectly set during the installer setup. The t/stat thinks there is auxiliary heat equipment that is controlled by a signal on the Aux-E terminal which you obviously don't have. My recommendation would be to go to the Honeywell website and download a copy of the installation guide for the FocusPro 8000 and go through the installer setup again but select the appropriate system type under setup function 1.
I subjest the honeywell pro 3000 is a very good stat it comes in programable and non programable their is also a pro 8000 that is great its touch screen and has many options but the 3000 is most cost effective
The Honeywell Vision Pro 8000 can be complicated to figure out if it isn't set up right from the system menu. There are so many things that you can make it do, sometimes the most common things are wrong. My question is ''what kind of system do you have, heat pump or not?, and is the system gas or oil?" If I knew these things, I could definitely help you figure out if the thermostat is set up right. I have the manual so that I can give you exact numbers. Just in case, you can email me at : firstname.lastname@example.org
If the thermostat is not over shooting the temperature than don't worry about it.
These thermostats are very sensitive and will turn the heat back on even before the degrees drop on the display. Often they will shut down before the display changes also. You can change the sensitivity of the thermpstat if you read the directions and change the cycles per hour to a less number. There is an installers program in there that you need to push a combiunation of buttons to get too. The instructions tell you how to do that also.
Hopefully you did not throw away the instruction manual for your t-stat.. :-)
did you make sure that when you pushed the system button that either heat or cool was blinking before pressing the buttons left and right of center? Also you can pull the stat from the base mounted on the wall and remove the batteries, wait a few and put the batteries back in and it should revert back to initial factory settings
The Chrono Therm 3 and 4's were some of the worst products that honeywell has EVER put out. I would suggest switching to the Vision Pro 8000, please consult your local HVAC company for more information regarding the change over.
You have two systems.
These two systems should be wired totally independent of one another. I have the Pro series t/stat in my house. I love it.... I am a retired contractor I get stuff at cost. I paid about $130 for that t/stat. I understand he is in business to make money. But he should be fair enough that in the future you would want to call him back, Or even give him a nice referral. Alol this guy wants is your money. If the first guy admitted thatbhe did not have the expertice. He shouldn't be paid the experts price.
Call your city or county building inspectors office. Tell them that you would like a list of 4 or 5 reputable heating contractors in your area.
$275 should be fair for the nice t/stat and a fused transformer. Although a cheap t/stat would be fine.
Plus 75 bucks to pull upthe driveway. 60 -90 bucks labor to staighten things out. You should not have to pay for the romantic weekend away for the contractor and his wife.
