  1. Pull the faceplate (bottom) straight out from the wall.
  2. Loosen the screws at the end of the wires, like the one in the middle at the tip of my middle finger.
  3. Remove the 2 screws which hold the rest in.
  4. Make a note of which wires were attached to what. I suggest taking pictures.

    I suppose it would be prudent to say that you should disconnect the power first, and remember that you may have to re-light the pilot on your furnace, if applicable. Please don't electrocute yourself, or blow the house up.

Check for screws on this stat. If no screws than you need to exert force to remove the cover. Will you damage it? Who cares! You are replacing it. Just be sure you remember the color code. R to red, W to white and etc.

Honeywell programable stats are availible from Home Depot for under $50.

Hope this helps you Dave....

That is model number for your outdoor unit. Thermostats are not dedicated to any particular model outdoor unit. You need instructions for the thermostat so the thermostat make and model number are needed.

How do i hookup a thermostat to a dayton unvented radiant heater modle be132c


Hi, If you are hooking up a programmable stat, the connections on it would be RC, RH, with a jumper connected to both, Y, W, and G. If you only had 2 wires before, red to RH and white to W. For cooling,Red to RC, and W to Y. Do not remove the jumper.
