Question about Honeywell Electronic Programmable Heat/Cool Thermostat - CT3300A100 Heater

Thermostat says ''Aux heat on'' and buzzes when we turn on heat

We have a honeywell thermostat. When we turn the heat on, the words, "heat on" blinks. Then, we hear a buzzing sound, sort of like an alarm and the panel on the thermostat says, "aux heat on".
Ideas???

    I have a RUUD that has started buzzing incessantly. I do have a heat pump, and it is working. I'm not having the issue with the aux heat light, but the buzzing at the thermostat itself is loud and distracting. I've gone in and tightened all the screws, but no help. Do I just need to replace the unit?

You most likely have a heat pump, the aux heat (usually electric) comes on anytime the room temperature is 4 degrees below the thermostat setting. Does the buzz go off when the aux heat lite goes out? If the aux heat does not shut off then the primary heater (heat pump) is not putting out enough heat to satisfy the thermostat. I need a little more info. Do you have a heat pump? Is it working?

SOURCE: Buzzing sound when aux heat comes on

Sounds like it could be a effiency function to warn you that the heat elements are on. Check your thermostat manual and see if you can turn this feature off. If this is not a feature then the thermostat may be wired wrong or something in the circuit may be trying to short out.

Aux keeps coming on !on honeywell th3210d thermostat when i turn regular heat on


This is normal when the heat pump doesn't satisfy the room temperature within a given time, it automatically will kick on auxillary for backup.

What does the "auxillary heat"


Auxiliary Heat is used to turn the electric heat strips ON, If the heat pump is not working. Or if the heat pump can't bring the space temperature up to Set Temperature it will display Aux Heat ON....... Assuming you have a Heat Pump System with Auxiliary Electric Heat as Back up...... If the tech didn't install a jumper wire from AUX to W on the subase which is in back of the Display on the Thermostat.....you won't get Auxiliary Heat if the Thermostat is set for Auxiliary Heat. Other wise the thermostat will turn the heat pump on first and then the electric heat (Aux Heat) if it needs it to satisfy the set temperature....... Hope this helps

Removed my non programable Honeywell RT 5220D replaced it with a Honeywell RTH6350D to run my Goodman Heat Pump. First I labeled the wires then connected wires as follows: AUX, G, C, O/B (orange wire)...


Leave the factory jumper between R & RC. Connect the wires to the new stat just as you have them labeled. Use a piece of thermostat wire to make a jumper from AUX to E terminals. Your new thermostat should give you instructions on how to access the installer set up. You are going to set it up as heat pump with aux. I see this is 2 days old but if you need any help let me know.

Sounds like you have a problem with your heat pump. Your aux heat is a electric coil. how old is the unit when was the last time it was serviced? How cold is it out side?

Honeywell Thermostat


Make sure G from indoor unit goes to G on thermostat for fan continous fan, if that doesn't work and you have 24 volts to R and C then the t'stat is bad.
For 2nd stage heat or aux.heat, on the indoor unit you need to make sure the wire W2 from the indoor unit goes to W2 on t'stat.
You don't need any wires from W1on the indoor unit to W1 at the t'stat because with a York heat pump Y1 is the contactor which turns the compressor on and you will get 1st stage heat, and for cooling the t'stat will also bring on O which is the (reversing valve) or cooling changeover relay for the cooling mode.
C = common usually black wire
R = hot usually red wire
Y or Y1 = contactor
W1 = 1st stage heat not needed for heat pump
W2 = Aux. heat indoor heat
G = fan
O = Cooling changeover relay
B = Heating changeover relay
L = System monitor
E = Emergency heat relay

You need to go into the installer setting to change it from heatpump to single stage gas heat.Go to www.honeywell.com if youve lost them.
