Question about Honeywell Air Conditioners
SOURCE: contour comfort control
normally, if you have a hold option, there should be a hold button which when you press again should un hold the setting. have you tried pressing the run button. this would eliminate all hold function and just run the programmed temperatures.

simply push cancel. That clears the hold feature.
Pushing hold once gets - permanent hold.
Pushing hold twice gets - days of permanent hold. So you can set it if you are going away on a temp and at the end of the days it goes back to normal operation.

How old is your system?
If your system is a heat pump and is failing to keep up overnight during the colder weather. Or if it struggles to keep up at all, a few issues come to mind.
Obviously, the first and most common cause would be due to an undercharge of refrigerant. With an undercharge, your heat pump has lost efficiency and cannot properly remove heat from outside.
Other possible issues that come to mind are failed defrost cycle. If your unit is not defrosting properly and it continues to run non-stop, a freeze-up could occur on the outdoor coil. And the worse it gets, the worse your system will perform.
Another possibility is auxiliary heat or heat strips are not coming on at all. Depending on your thermostat, you would be able to tell if the thermostat is calling for auxiliary heat. If you are not getting any additional heat, then the heat pump may not be adequate for the space intended.
Other smaller factors may come into play such as incorrect defrost cycles. Possibly a mechanical component taking a break or overheating or maybe a mechanical failure such as failed compressor leaving the only heat you have as emergency.

Basically, your going to press either of the arrows until it flashes, or about 1 second.
Then you set the temperature you desire and then press and hold the HOLD button until HOLD is displayed in the display.
Congrats, your on a permanent hold.
Then your next step would be to go get a real thermostat, install it on the wall, and then throw that piece of **** Hunter out the window as hard as you can.
The biggest problem with the Hunter stats is that they are cheap. On top of that, the programmable stats have a factory set program that cannot be simply deleted. Its always there, no matter what you do. And it makes for hassles when it goes back to factory settings and you either have to painstakingly re-program it or deal with the factory settings.
Here is a link to the Hunter manual.
I would recommend to you the Honeywell line-up. The Visionpro 8000 series is a very nice and user friendly thermostat. Its the same one I have on my wall. Very easy to use and understand. Its touchscreen and the screen can be locked to avoid unwanted use of the system.

I am not sure, i have a similiar unit that is brand new, seems like a faulty mechanism from the maker, it starts cold for about 2-3 minutes and then shuts down condenser and blows hot air repeating this cycle. I don't believe it ias a recharge, just a faulty machine
