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

Siemens rwb29 controller doesn't work properly. central heating comes up only when you select hot water, but not on its own


This happens to my rwb29 from time to time. You can try switching off the power to the controller for a couple of minutes with CH thermostat and CH programs set off. Or you can press the little reset button to the bottom right of the LCD screen. After 1 or 2 attempts these steps usually restore the independent control on my unit.

How do I wire a central heating room thermostat


You didn't mention if you had electric heat or gas heat. If you have electric heat you must move a wire on the thermostat to make the fan come on. Most all wall stats come ready for gas heat. No need to make a wire change for gas. Anyway I have a diagram of a typical central unit HERE

the first problem is you need a milli-volt t-stat and your central has a 24volt t-stat if you connect the 2 it will fry the controlls in the wall heater the second problem is t-stat location if the wall heater is near the central heats t-stat it will shut off the central to soon . maybe relocate wall unit to coldest room ?

Have a back boiler. Central heating working fine. Hot water not.


Depends on type of control system but usually you will have a three-way motorised valve somewhere. This is contolled by the tiimer and the thermostat on your cylinder. Look for a box that has one pipe going in to it and two further pipes coming out. I suspect yours is stuck on heating. Some models had a manual lever to put it to just hot water. End of the fday you need to get someone out to fix this one.

One of the thermastat wires attaching to the williams heating on the wall became loose from the screw and didn't seem to be making little of no solid contact like a car battery might due. i tightened the...


If it touched a grounded metal surface, it is possible, leave the wires hooked up at the furnace, pull the thermostat off of the wall, disconnect the 2 thermostat wires, and then twist them together, the furnace should fire, if it does, then the thermostat is shot. Replace the thermostat, usually when there is a short, it burns out the heat anticipator on the thermostat.
Good Luck,

Replacing WHITE-RODGERS manual thermostat with 3 wires ( red, white, blue and installing Honeywell electronic thermostat RTH110B, how do I connect it? The heating is not central, baseboard heating.


I have only seen one Honeywell thermostat that would work with a 3-wire heating system.

I would replace it with a White-Rodgers 1F80-0471. They are about $100, but they are a good thermostat, and they work well with the 3-wire zone valves.

Most other thermostats have the "Y" terminal that you need, but do not control the zone valve correctly.

Can't get new thermostat to work


When you have only 2 wires it is set up to run just a heater only. If this is a central heat/air unit, you would have 4, red for Hot, White for heat, green for fan, and yellow for cooling. sometimes they will have a blue wire that's not being used for a spare only.Some times you can use just the heat part of the stat if you connect the Red to r and if the subbas'e says Rc and Rh .If so, try connecting red to red and if it does say Rc and Rh that means red cooling and red heating.Run a jumper wire across the 2 reds along with the red from the wall. Connect white to w.Try programming the heat and see if it fires up. If not, you will have to replace stat with a 2 wire Heating only thermostat. Do not pull any wires up from the transformer as you will burn it out!! Just remember, 2 wires are for a heater only!4 are for heat and cool, and 8 are used for a heat pump.Sometimes the new stats have the red jumper wire in place and all you have to do is hook your red to either end of the jumper, and then white to W. If no RCand RH, get a heat only stat, or it will never work believe me, I know this.Good Luck and let me know if you need more help. Shastalaker7

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

Central heating programmer


is the buttons still working, eg, boost, on/off etc? or is the heating not working?

If so the LCD/Control panel may have lost power, this usually a switch/or fuse that may have been accidently powered of or blown
