Question about Honeywell Air Conditioners

Open Question

Just installed the RTH 7600 and set it to Auto. Also set the temparature to 72 degrees and hit HOLD. The manual states this should permanently override the pre-programmed schedule settings, but we woke up freezing this morning. Why does the "Permanent Hold" setting not override the pre-programmed ones? Thanks David

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

I have a Braeburn 3200 and when the the temperature reaches the desired heat setting. The furnaces heat will shut off, but the fan will continue to run indefinetly. eventually blowing very cold air up


The fan relay is stuck in the on position. When the temperature drops the heater does not ignite because the fan is already running and ignition is locked out after the heat cycle starts an the fan turns on

What brand and installed in what? If a thermostat is installed on a wall that is heated by the sun it will give false temps. If it's mounted too low or high it will not be right either.

The temp setting shows 78 degrees,lower to 72 degrees /it stays for 15 sec and returns to 78 degrees no codes


you may not be giving the a/c enough time to cool down to 72 the reason it goes back to 78 is that is the temp in the room at that moment put on 72 and give it about 20-30 min. to see if this helps

The temperature on my honeywell thermostat is set to 89 degrees and does not want to change no matter what. The model is RTH2300. Please help because the heat is really unbearable.


Just google RTH 2300 for the manual, check that the hold is not on, if it is push it to turn it off, if not read thru the manual. On most stats if the unoccupied set point are blocking the occupied set points run the unnocc. temp down and then set the occ. set points down. Good luck

I would remove front cover and see if your thermostat has a mercury switch.this will be a small vial connected to a bimetallic coil. The vial wiil be about 1/3 full of mercury. It will have a brite silverey appearence.There shoul be two leveling peg on inside of thermostat. Check the level with a torpedo level. it should be very close to level. If not loosen mounting screws that hold stat to wall and gently move base till you have it level. Hold base steady and tighten mounting screws. This should help thermostat setting and actual temperture to be closer. It's not unusual for setting to be off by several degrees.
