Question about Honeywell Programmable Thermostat Heater

2 Answers

Honeywell T8011R We lost power last night and woke up to no display on our honeywell T8011r. Fan still works when turned on. I took it off the wall all the wires and everthing looks okay, we flipped the breakers on and off still nothing. I have read other units haveing a switch on the back but this one doesn't. I also talked to a honeywell tech that had me check everything and decided it has to be an electrical issue and we are not getting between 24 - 30 volts. We use a voltage meter and it is reading 26 (if we did it right). Any suggestions, its getting into the 30s tonight. :{

    Well I don't know what happened but after taking the thermostat with me today to price new ones, I brought it back home for one last try. After popping it back on everthing lit back up and showed 88 degrees, obviously from the car ride home and the heater blowing on it, because my house is only at 60 at this time. So for some reason it is working again. Any ideas what might have happened, can it reset itself from the drastic temp. change?

Had similar experience. Display off and no fan power. I replaced the unit after an hour and the display came on. I guess a pin needed to be reset (cleaned by wiping against contact). Hope it stays on.

Check for either an in-line fuse in the heating unit or a fuse on the control board also in the heating unit.

    Maybe one of the pins were not making connection and when you removed it, it fixed it self. Stranger things have happened.

The display on my Ampam by Honeywell programmable thermostat displays all 8s. Is it time to get a new thermostat?


"Funky" displays often indicate a problem with a control or processor. The simplest fix is removing power for a minute or two and trying again.

Doing this will likely erase any time / temperature program in the t-stat, so you should make note of it before attempting.

I'm not familiar with the t-stat you have, but if it is like most - it has a battery or two inside to maintain the program during power outages (and allows programming while in your easy chair). You should remove the battery(s) and remove it from the wall (most will simply pull away when unclipped / disconnected) to completely power down. Wait a moment and reinstall the battery(s) and reinstall to base on the wall.

Honeywell thermostat won't turn the furnace on after power outage.


probably tripped a limit switch or a low voltage fuse would kill your display on the tstat, you should have battery power on your stat though.unless you have knowlege of electrical you better call a technician

We installe da T8011R Programmable Heat Pump Thermostat approximately 2 years ago and two weeks ago, the a/c unit began turning itself completely off (blank screen and all) several times a day and night...


If the screen is blanking out that means that the 24 volt power to the thermostat is being disrupted.
The most likely cause is a safety switch on the secondary condensate drain line. This means that the primary drain line is almost totally clogged and that the condensate backs up enough to trip the condensate overflow switch. When it shut the system down (blank thermostat) this allows time enough for the condensate to slowly drain out and the safety switch resets itself. Clean out the primary condensate drain line (hook a shop vacuum to the line where it terminates outside and sucks the gunk out of it), this should take care of the problem. If it does not then you may have to get an a/c technician to professionally blow the line out from the air handler and possibly clean the condensate tray out in the air handler.
Hope this helps.
One note: If the safety switch was properly installed then the system would shut off and never come back on until the drainage was corrected. Yours is obviously not installed properly.

I have Honeywell T8011R programmable Thermostat. Turn AC on last night for first time...working fine...came back late morning to find display and fan off. Check circuit breaker...on. I took it off and...


Hello, first you must verify if you are getting 24 volts to the tstat at the secondary side of the transformer, if not you have a bad transformer. If you are getting 24 volts then check the batteries in the thermostat.

T8011r thermostat doesnt have a display, fuse is not blown out and it suddenly stopped working


Here is a link for the owner's manual. It gives several suggestions for the cause of the display being blank. Check those and let me know if that helps.

Honeywell Electric Baseboard Heater thermostat


You need to take the wires off the thermostat. And touch the red and white wire together. If the heater works then you need a new thermostat, if it does not work then you need a new ignitor. It all depends on the t-stat. Dont worry about the wires there are not enough volts to hurt you. It is milli volts so just touch them together and the unit should fire up

Battery backup?


which model do you have ? the 8000/8001 or 8011 the set is different depending on your type of heating system. This model has a memory chip not a battery that saves your settings. So you could be looking at replacing the unit.

I have a Honeywell Programmable Thermostat, T8011R. The users guide for the T8000 series can be found at:
http://www.honeywell.com.au/business/acs/acp/ecc/ec/residential/identify.html

To keep your temperature at a single setting, just enter the temperature at every period, i.e. WAKE, LEAVE, RETURN AND SLEEP for both the Monday through Friday time frame and the same for the weekend. I do this at 55 degrees when I'm going to be out of town.
To 'Guest' , enter your 68 degrees at WAKE, LEAVE and RETURN, then enter 66 degrees at SLEEP. Do this for the Monday through Friday time frame and again for the Saturday - Sunday time frame.
