Try reprogramming the thermoatat, if thats no good then have a look at how you installed the thermostat and if you have done it correctly, rectify it if you have not and try again.
if that fails the thermostat itself may be faulty

kind regards

It is possible. Several system checks that you can make before deciding that would first be sure that your thermostat is switched to heat instead of cool. To the right for heat, to the left for cool.

Second test, using your up button, run the temperature up to at least 80 degrees, this would eliminate any wrong temperature settings that may be presently in the unit.

This way, if the heater doesn't come on with a manual setting, the wiring connections to the heat side could have been switched.

Sorry, but there is nothing wrong with the thermostat.

The problem is in the furnace. In heat mode all the thermostat does is close one switch; heat on or heat off. The furnace does the rest. So if the furnace fires up the thermostat is working.

Your cool and "fan on" both work on a high fan speed through a relay.

Heat is at a lower fan speed, usually medium or medium high. You have something wrong in that part of the circuit. It could be several things depending on the model, age and type of furnace. It could be a bad speed relay, a bad fan switch, a bad furnace board, (speed relays are often built on to the board), or even a loose wire to the blower motor (heat) or bad winding in the blower motor (medium) so it only works on high.

You should keep the fan switch on any time you heat as the unit heating with the fan not running will cause it to overheat which is very ******* the furnace, could damage it, and is a little dangerous.

Call for service right away please.

Good Luck.

Why won't my lg ductless heat pump regulate the room temperature?


After I have been reading up on your unit it appears that the thermostat is not operating correctly. I found this real basic information on installation for your unit. This link I am giving is pretty basic instal schematics. But seems to be something about your thermostat needs to be dialed in or is not working properly.

Wiring color to Thermostat Depending on what thermostat youhave and existing wires. Typically red and white are for heat and yellow andgreen are for cooling. On base of thermostat there should be initials stampedto identify wires by color. R. W. Y. G. Possible Rc. and Rh if so for most usesyou need to jumper these two together. You may have a blue wire instead ofyellow or green. If so just hook blue to y or g. Hope this helps you. Thanks.

I am getting hot air instead of cool air from my heat pump when it is in the cooling mode.


The problem is in the thermostat wiring. Y1 on an air conditioner, brings on the cooling. On a heat pump, it brings on the compressor, which generally fails to heat mode. The O wire operates the reversing valve, which brings on cooling. If these wires are reversed, or not hooked up, you will not get cooling.

If you have this type of system your thermostat will not work;
  • Multi-Stage Heat Pumps
  • 3 Wire Hydronic Systems
  • Line Voltage Systems (120/240 VAC)

  • This thermostat is only for this type of HVAC systems;
  • Most 24V Heating and A/C Systems
  • 1 Stage Heat/1 Stage Cool: Gas, Oil, Electric, or Single Stage Heat Pump Systems
  • 2 Wire Heat Only Hydronic Systems (Hot Water Baseboard & Radiator)
  • Millivolt Systems (Wall Heaters / Furnaces & Gas Fireplaces)

    1. Never connect a low voltage thermostat to line voltage.
    Two wires control a heat only system.
    1. Connect one wire to W and the other to RH.
    Two wires control a cool only system.
    1. Connect one wire to RC and the other to Y.
    Three wires for forced air heat only system, where the previous thermostat
    did not have a clock or timer.
    1. The previous RH or RC wire is the 24-volt transformer wire. Connect it to RH. Leave jumper connecting RH to RC. Connect the forced air heat system to W, and the fan wire to G.
    Three wires for a heat only, forced
    water system that did NOT have a
    clock or timer.
    1. This system employ 3 wire zone valves. Currently no Lux controls are compatible with this system.
    Three wires control a heat only, forced water system that DID have a clock or timer.
    1. Tape off and do NOT install any clock or timer wire. Often they are labeled C or TC. Install the remaining two wires, one to RH and the other to W.
    Four wires control a heat only system,
    and two of the wires operate clock or timer. The other two wires operate the heater.
    1. Tape off and do NOT install any clock or timer wire. Often they are labeled C or TC. Install the remaining two wires, one to RH and the other to W. The jumper connecting RH to RC may remain or be removed.
    Two wires control heating AND cooling.
    1. Currently no Lux controls are compatible with this system.
    Three wires control heating and cooling. One wire operates heat, one operates cooling and the third provides 24 VAC.
    1. Connect the 24-volt power wire to RH. Install a jumper connecting RH to RC. This jumper is usually pre-wired. connect the heat wire to W, and the cooling wire to Y.
    Three wires control a cooling only system. One wire operates the compressor, one operates the fan and the third provides
    24 VAC.
    1. Connect the 24-volt power wire to RC. Connect the cooling wire to Y and the fan wire to G.
    Four wires control a heating and cooling, electric, gas or oil, forced air system that
    is NOT a heat pump.
    1. Connect the 24 VAC transformer wire to RH or RC. Install a jumper connecting RH to RC This jumper is often prewired. Connect the heat wire to W, the cooling wire to Y. and the fan wire to G.
    Four wires control a Single Stage Heat Pump. They were labeled: G, Y, R or
    RH or RC, With either B or was used.
    1. Do not connect wires to both B and O. Connect the reversing valve wire to B or O, just as the previous thermostat. Install a jumper wire from RH to RC. Connect 24 VAC wire to RH too. Install a second jumper wire from W to Y. Connect compressor wire to Y and the fan wire to G.
    More than 4 wires are connected to the
    old thermostat

    Sounds like you got the wrong thermostat.
    The orange wire is for the reversing valve, which reverses the flow of refridgerant and changes the system from cooling mode, to heat mode.

    If your thermostat has no terminal for the orange wire, (usually labled "O") then you have a thermostat that is not compatible with heat pumps.

    Ruud system and heat is not working


    This is a heat pump right? You have the blue connected to o/b, I assume you have a yellow wire connected to y or cool. The thermostat may need a jumper wire from RC to RH on the thermostat. This gives 24v to the heat system to work. If you have this already, then the orange wire is most commonly connected to the reversing valve. On the wiring directions that came with the thermostat what does it have common assigned to (if any)? And you need to know that the reversing valve is energized in cool or heat mode. the wiring diagram will tell you this.
