The stat works using a bi metalic strip so that click you here is making a contact and telling the boiler to call for heating so if you getting no click you need a new room stat. Replace with same model and note the wiring most stats only use 2/3 wires depending on system

My Baxi Combi 80e boiler turns the heating on randomly. With the wall thermostat turned down and even with the boil switched to hot water only the heating still fires up when unwanted.


If the thermostat wire run passes anywhere through, beside or inside any metal surfaces and the wires touch any of the metal its the same as if you turn the stat to on. I've seen this a few times. Easiet way to detect it, if its inside the house is at night in the dark. Look around when its doing this you may see the small spark when it goes on. Otherwise you will need to inspect the entire run from the stat to the untis, etc.

From what you describe it sounds like it might be a relay problem.
It needs to be diagnosed properly first.

If you have a newer style programmable thermostat there are batteries in the thermostat that need replacing. Otherwise look at the thermostat wiring. If you have a voltmeter. check for 24 volts ac on the terminal with the red wire and the one marked C. If no voltage is there either a fuse is bad or the 24 volt control transformer is bad.

I do not have a room thermostat connected to my oil fired central heating boiler. I want to install a wireless room thermostat to avoid having to run cable. how do i go about this and which is the best...


All wireless wall thermostats are Millivolt controlled. rather than having an 18 or 24 volt (transformer) wired wall thermostat. Before purchasing any wireless wall thermostat, you need to determine what your oil fired boiler requires for activation. My experience tells me, that it's going to require either 18 or 24 volts. In which case a wireless thermostat won't work.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

My goodman a/c unit wont turn on at all


Hi, not knowing if this is a central heat and air unit, or window unit, ect, I will say first to check the circuit breaker to see if it has tripped. If you have no power, this could be the problem, it just over loaded and tripped the breaker. If you do find it tripped, be sure you shut it all the way off hard, and back on hard. If this is not the problem, and if you have a wall mounted thermostat, get back to me and let me know what we are working with as far as if it is a heat-pump, gas fired central heat and Air Conditioning, or what ever you may have, This will be of much help in solving you're problem.
Sincerely,

Replaced mercury thermostat w/Honeywell CT87K - doesn't work!


You need a specific thermostat for a Wall Furnace it is a Millivolt Thermostat and not a 24v standard thermostat....usually it will work anyway however if the powerpile (generator produces millivolts from the pilot light) is weak it may not be producing enough...or the Pilot light may be dirty and lazy...won't produce enough millivolts ...or you can have bad or dirty contacts or connections....or a combination of any of the above.....a 24v Thermostat and particularly a non-mercury thermostat has too much resistance in it for a millivolt system....as your Wall Furnace (other than the fan) runs on less than 1 volt

Electrical burning smell in house


Mhenn, It is my guess that the 'electrical burning' smell is from your heating system. Since there is no smoke and the walls are not warm.... then there is no real problem. The smell maybe just dust has collected in the duct work that is burning off the central heating systems electrical heat strips. If you have electrical heat strips then that may be the problem. If you have a central gas heat system, it may be the same type problem. Hope this helps you. Henry
