Furnace reads system on but furnace will not run

I have a Honeywell programable (not sure the model but 8yrs old)

I have the temp set to 22 degrees and it is 20degree and reads system on bu the furnace is not on. It will come on now and then but ignite, blower on then it shuts off. Also it will start and do the same thing if I switch it to off and then back to heat. Sometimes when it is running i will hear it ignite more then once. I have changed the batteries but no change. I am not sure if it is a furnace problem or time for a new thermostat.

Thank you in advance.

    I 've been having the same problem. I several times a week have to reset the breaker. It's programmed 4 times during the day. Silly *** me never knew about the batteries. LOL. Just changed them. Hope that was the trick.

It sounds like you have plugged filters or a dirty flame sensor when you turn the thermostat off you reset the lock out in the furnace control board. first always check your filters and make sure their clean. then turn the t-stat to heat go to the furnace and listen. see if you can hear the combustion motor turn on then a little later you should hear the gas valve open and the burners ignite. if the burners ignite for approx. 3 sec then shut off you have a dirty or bad thermocouple. if you don't feel comfortable with performing repairs your self call a qualified service co. hope this helps.

It is definitely a furnace problem. Once you turn the thermostat up above room temp, it closes a switch and sends power to your burner, (gas or oil). It would seem more like a problem at the burner that is causing you problems. If you do not have experience with heating equipment I suggest you call a local repair man. Hope this helps a little

I have a Honeywell programmable Thermostat (an expensive one that handles humidity, etc) and every spring and fall the thermostats behave improperly by ignoring the programmed temperature and cooling the...


What is the model number of the thermostat? What may be happening is the humidity control is trying to satisfy the humidity setting by running the a/c. In the installers set-up, there should be a setting to determine how long the system should run to satisfy humidity setting. I typically set thermostats for a 3 degree droop. Meaning it'll only drop 3 degrees below set temp. Also check your humidity setting to be sure it's not set too low. It should be set between 45% and 50%.

I have a honeywell ct3200 with a trane xl 80 furnace. it will cycle on to the right temp, go off and cycle the furnace back on 30 seconds later. Is that normal? It is 32 degrees outside, set at 68


Hi, check page 22 in your manual, it says "Adjust the screws on the back of the thermostat as instructed on page 7." Your furnace is a 80% efficiency but is also a high efficiency 2 stage heating system so try adjusting screws A and B both ways and see which gives you the correct cycling.

Cannot set heat setting by using "hold" feature


make sure it is not telling you room temp, some of the Honeywells, will display room temp over desired temp. check that, if it wont let you switch temp than buy a new one, if you dont have a heat pump a new cheap stat is around 20.00.

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

Temp shows 2 degrees warmer than what is was set to


sometimes the furnace does a better job than anticipated, i wouldn't worry about it, especially if the furnace shuts off.
the setpoint is the temperature you want it to be
cycle lenghts are determined by how much recovery you are requesting. for instance, in the morning when you wake up, you want the temperature to be at its setpoint. what the thermostat will do is make the furnace run a limited lengths during the recovery process.
