Non-deletable schedule in VisionPRO TH8000

Unwanted non-deletable schedule exists.Honeywell VisionPRO TH8000 When moving from Sleep scheduleto Wake schedule former schedules appear even though correct scheduleis placed in memory and is visible as desired schedule for wake mode.Is there any way to purge entire memory and go to default so that I canremove unwanted schedules. This condition only occurs from Sleep toWake mode. All other modes work correctly. Thanks

    I have one of the TH8000s and one of the older variety without the touch screen - if not the Model# RTH221B, it's a lookalike (the model number is too small to read - age - poor me).

    Our problem is, we have peak time and off peak time with our electricity provider, so when the peak hours finish at 7PM, the thermostats had already kicked in and were running up our demand charge, not to mention double the KWH rate.

    The TH8000 model was disabled with 530 function set to zero, the other with function 13 set to zero. This worked perfectly and I'm happy to be back in charge of my cooling schedule :-)

    I wouldn't have cared so much if it wasn't for the ridicules 12PM-7PM peak rates down here around Phoenix.

The thermostat has a function called "Adaptive Intelligent Recovery".

This feature allows the thermostat to learn how long the furnace and air conditioner take to reach programmed temperature settings, so the temperature is reached at the time you set. For example: Set the Wake time to 6 am, and the temperature to 70°. The heat will come on before 6 am, so the temperature is 70° by the time you wake at 6.

You can turn off this function. Download the installation guide at the next link:
and look for funcion number 0530 Adaptive Intelligent Recovery. In this manual you also find the way to do a reset with the function number 0710.

I hope this solves your problem.

    I mourn the loss of my old mercury switch thermostat! The electric company talked me in to going with the new and improved programmable thermostat. When the installer programmed a Day/Night schedule for my heat pump, the Adaptive Intelligent Recovery caused my auxillary heat (electric) to come on the estimated time in advance resulting in an approximate $127 increase in my monthly bill (which the company eventually reimbursed). The second service tech who came to investigate the problem explained the adaptive intelligent recovery program (which apparently the first guy didn't know about when I told him I did not want my auxillary heat coming on without my intervention). He programmed it to OFF (program 530 set at "0") and all was well. Then I had a service call for my heater and the service guy "broke" my thermostat and he replaced it but didn't know about program 530. This Link in this answer takes you to the Installer's SETUP information (page 15) and I was able to "turn off" the adaptive intelligent recovery. I'll go with this but there is something to be said for the old mercury switch with a manual control! Thanks for the information!

    In order to turn of the Adaptive Intelligent Recovery, search for the installation manual for your model. Mine was Honeywell model TH6110D, you had to press the fan and up button to get into the menu, and then turn option 13 to 0.

Thermostat set at 73degrees , turns on and off to frequently

Hello Jean Thomson,

There are several reasons air-conditioning could go on & off frequently.

Thermostats can be set with close degree function...

Assuming your temperature variances are of no importance
the THERMOSTAT can be adjusted to be less sensitive...

BUT BY FAR... the most common reason for rapid cycling
of the A/C are air leaks and poor insulation...

Your local UTILITY provider will likely have FREE (or very reasonable) thermal analysis - evaluation programs... wit supported contractor services to improve your INSULATION and reduce ENERGY CONSUMPTION.

Also you might need to consider that your A/C system is simply poorly engineered to keep your home at a comfortable temperature...

Again... there are SPECIALISTS who are capable of analyzing your existing structure... and recommending appropriate systems sizing to economically operate efficiently....

Nothing here for the uninformed noviciate... all highly technical.


Hope this helps!!

My thermostat is set on 68 degrees and it shows room temperature is 68, but the furnace still kickson, Honeywell said it has a 1 degree difference. so what's the problem then?

Yes there is a one degree tolerance, in fact my heater just kicked on and it is set to 67 and the inside temperature reads 67. It is also a Honeywell.

My termost set to a/c, the fan auto, blow very well, but when I switch to heat and the fan auto, doesn't work, but if I put fan on work why?

the thermostat says to call for heat buildup in the work if its not cold enough the thermostat won't call for heat and I won't go on but when it gets cold and the thermostat set to the temperature you want or hire someone that doesn't cycle

Why can't I lower my honeywell 8500 below 67 on cool?

With a two story house you have to be aware that cold air flows downwards so any cold air coming from an ac unit will flow downstairs( normally down the stairway) so unless you can close off the down stairs then the up stairs unit will be cooling downstairs as well. Ac units have a thermostat located in the air intake and it cools until the cold air has risen to that point. In effect the space above the ac unit will be hotter than the floor. Knowing how they work ,you can see that the upstairs unit will never reach the set temperature because the cold air is continually heating from the house and will never get to the top thermostat.
So your solutions are
1-- fit controls that restrict the cold air from leaving the upper floor (Doors)
2--don't run the upper ac unit unless you are living up there (waste of money
)3 place an ac in each upper room and keep the room door closed
