Question about Honeywell Programmable Thermostat Heater

Open Question

Thermostat shows wrong temperature

I have a Honeywell TH110 DP programmable thermostat (controls a baseboard heater). During heating (set point at 67F) the temperature reading gets stuck on 62F regardless of the actual temperature of the room and the thermostat just keeps the heater on.

I have checked this with a reliable indoor thermometer. For example, it could be 72F inside temp and the thermostat still shows 62F with the baseboard heater going on. I have verified that there are no drafts near the thermostat.

To further verify I have turned the heater power off and let the room cool down to 50F and re-started the heating. For a while the indoor thermometer and the Honeywell unit show the same temperature until it gets to 62F from then on the Honeywell is stuck and the heater keeps working and the room gets warmer beyond the set point of 67F.

Any ideas on what could be causing this?

Most of these problems are the program settings on these way overcomplicated thermostats. You will need to re-read the instructions on setting the programs. Or bite the bullet and buy a cheaper and simpler one. If you installed it yourself, make sure the settings on the inside are correct, like gas/electric heat, and 24 volts, stuff like that.

SOURCE: Honeywell CM921 Showing room temp at -24 degrees, How do I reset?

Heya this is a manufacturing fault from honeywell them selves when it comes up -24 basically it needs to be replaced there is no way around in if you get in touch with honeywell they are generally good about it also if you provide them with the date code and model code they will be greatfull as it seems they have sent out a "bad batch". you locate this by:

A) Move the slide in to the off position
B) Press and hold i for 5 seconds
C) Unit will enter settings mode
D) Press and hold the i button and the + and ¿ button together
E) The unit will hold the relay on for 5 minutes and you can view by pressing the down arrow twice for model id/date code (ww/yy)

I hope this helps

The thermostat will not cut off the A/C until the thermometer reading gets to 76.

If there is not a heat source near/behind the thermostat which is causing the thermometer to read higher than actual room temperature, it sounds like the thermostat thermometer is out of calibration.

There are ways to calibrate it, but much to involved to go into here.

One solution is to just set the thermostat at 80, knowing that it's really set on 76.

Another solution is to replace the thermostat.

Check in your manual for the thermostat. By pushing a combination of buttons you can get into the advanced installer menu. From there you can make an adjustment to correct the temperature.

SOURCE: Honeywell RTH2310 thermostat temp variance

Hi,
Yes you can change that by change the number of cycles per hour that your t-stat looks from for youe furnace. Lower the cycles per hour number and it will increase the range.

You can see how to do it here

Why is my honeywell 8320r1003 short cycling for hot water heat.I have heat set at 65 degress.cycling 2min,3min,the most is 8min.


Hi Bill, after closing your thermostat, is this correct the situation?
And how far is your thermostat from your baseboard heater, if the baseboard is underneath the stat, you should move the stat elsewhere. Hope this help you find the problem.

Need to start with comparing the temp in the room to the temp the heater is set to. A t-stat will read +/- the actual temp. If their not even close, then the heater will run trying to reach the temp the t-stat is set to.

Check your wiring to the base board heater itself, is there any jumpers that should have been removed? Are the thermostat leads on the correct terminals at the base board heater? This sounds as though it is wired directly to the power and not thru the thermostat. Please check your paper work for wiring, if you are not comfortable with doing this please consult with an electrician.

Make sure the switches on the back of the thermostat is set for hot water heat. If you have more then 1 zone you may a stuck zone valve or a short in the wiring somewhere keeping the boiler on.

Replace three wire thermostat with four wire thermostat


From the two red and two black wires (and the specs in the pdf), your new thermostat sounds like it's designed to directly control the line voltage (120 or 240) to the heater. That's the usual way baseboard heaters are controlled.

Could your wires be red, black, and (old, yellowed) white, the standard colors in a 3-wire power cable? Just the red and black should be enough to control a 120-volt heater so I don't understand what the white would have been used for. If it were my heater I'd take off the cover(s) -- with the power off, of course -- and find out what those wires actually connect to.
