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

1 Answer

Thermostat auto-changeover mode unavailable

I installed a Honeywell Focuspro TH6000 series (model TH6110D1005) thermostat to replace my fairly new Braeburn 2000. I have AC and 1-stage regular gas heat and I bought the Honeywell because it has an auto-changeover feature between cool and heat.

I referenced the installation manuals for both the Braeburn and Honeywell to be sure I was connecting the right wires to the right terminals on the Honeywell. The descriptions of the functions of the four wires in both the Honeywell and Braeburn manual are the same, so I wired the Honeywell the same as the Braeburn. The jumper was used in the Braehurn and Honeywell.

Heat, cool and the fan work fine, as they did in the Braeburn. The problem is that I cannot configure the Honeywell to auto-changeover (the whole reason I bought it).

The Honeywell lets you select different modes to operate the thermostat in: heat, cool, auto-changeover and a heat-pump mode. The manuak mentions that heat pump mode will not appear on the display as an option if you don't have a heat pump (I do not have a heat pump and the option does not appear)..

The problem is that auto-changeover is also missing from the selections: heat, cool and off are the only mode choices offered.

Any ideas?

Thank you very much.

    TH6000 series states it changes from Heat to Cool automatically but it does not show up on the screen and says, "depending on how installed"

I have a Rheem Classic Super Quiet 80 gas furnace (for heat). The fan stops when the "heat" turns on.


Any time I ever had trouble,first thing to suspect is the thermostat.
They lose contact sometimes and sometimes you tap the face and they work til next glitch.
If the thermostat has some years on it,go ahead and replace it.
Can't you just leave the heat and fan in auto? That would be best,I think. don-ohio

What type of thermostat do you have?
You can call the company that installed it to get the over ride password or how to reset the thermostat so you can control the temperature

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

I have a Coleman Evcon electric furnace, the blower fan runs constantly and I have to shut the breaker off inside the front cover to turn it off. The switch is on auto and it runs even when the thermostat...


It could be a thermostat problem. Also it will seem to run constantly as it tries to heat and one of the elements are working which could be a sequencer problem.

Flashing re co


Re Co stands for Recovery Mode. That means if you have programed your thermostat to be at say 72° at 5:00 then it should kick on in Recovery Mode several minutes before 5 in order to reach that temperature. This is normal and doesn't indicate that something is wrong, just that your thermostat is trying to reach or recover the programed temperature.
