  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....

Have dayton model 2e215 mercury thermostat and trying to replace with programmable. How do I get the old one off of the wall. It looks like the mercury vial sits on a cover over the wires but I cant see...


There are either 2 or 3 small screws which hold the thermostat to the wall plate.
Remove these and the thermostat will come off to reveal the wall plate with the wiring connections.

Wiring diagram for a Dayton thermostat


Contact Dayton on the internet for this problem. The diagram should be available on their site. Or they will give you a number for customer care. They can give you step-by-step instructions. I am a technician and this is what I would do as their are millions of wiring diagrams. Many are noy up to date.

Dayton 2yu62 doesn't work at all


Need to check heating elements and replace if necessary. If your checks are complete that is the answer I think.I suggest reviewing your findings. The heating elements rarely go bad.
