Question about Honeywell CT87B ROUND HEATING&COOLING MECHANICAL THERMOSTAT - WHITE Heater
Don't really know what kind of heating system is being used cause i rent, but im pretty sure its gas and i know there are only two wires behind the thermostat, my old honeywell mercury button unit blew out and the landlord put this new honeywell in and now the heat won't shut off unless i take the unit off the wall. he put one wire in the r, and the other in w.. what do to correct it so i can turn heat on and off when i want?
Had similar problem, continuous fan, turn off power, then won't start up. Replaced thermostat, no change. The main controller board in the furnace went bad. What was weird was that it happened in the summer, while the heat was turned off. One day I noticed that the fan was running. The thermostat was in the off position, and I had to shut off power to the furnace to make it stop. I forgot about it till heating season came along and it wouldn't start up. The preliminary blower would start, the gas would click on, it would light, then quit. After tracing and checking the various safety switches, etc. it became apparrent the main board was bad. I found one on ebay, replaced it, [a simple job, unplug, a few screws, replug] and it's been working fine..good luck, John

You will need to go to the heating system and see what color wires are hooked to that. Typically the black and white wires will be used unless they used another color due to a bad wire. Hook the colored wires to the R or RH terminal on the thermostat and the other wire to the W terminal. You can also try taking the wires you have and one by one twisting them together and have a second person inform you when the heating system turns on. Take those two wires and hook them to the terminals I mentioned above.
