-AC appears in the display of chronotherm III

I have a Honeywell Chronotherm III programmable thermostat. While attempting to adjust the temp I noticed -AC in the display where the temp should be displayed. I replaced the batteries and yet it still won't work. Any ideas?

Thanks,
John

We had this problem recently. The heater would come on for a minute and the thermostat would display "Hold" plus the temperature. A minute later we would hear a "click" at the thermostat, and then "-AC" would appear where the temperature should be. The heater would then shut off, only to come on again a couple minutes later. The intake was also very loud. Anyway, we found the solution to be simple - my husband decided to just try changing the air filter, and all of a sudden everything was working perfectly! We thought it was a broken thermostat, but thankfully we tried an easier (and what should be obvious) solution.

I have had the same problem- twice. It was a similar but different problem each time. The -AC means the ac control voltage isnt making it to the thermostat. In my case both times it was a switch in the control circuit that wasn't closing properly. The easiest was the front cover switch. If the front cover is removed from the furnace or has vibrated loose, the switch will open, preventing the furnace from running. The other instance I ran into was a flow switch on the exhaust blower which ensures the there is flow OUT the chimney. The switch wasn't functioning, so the furnace wouldn't start. The blower would come on for a short time, but the burners wouldn't light.

Hope this helps,

Honeywell Chronotherm III Thermostat shows time of day-AC. No heat in the 2 zones with this message.


Hello,Message AC means that there is no 24volt power to the thermostat from the unit/s it controls.Please check all switches & curcit breakers to the unit/s as there is no low voltage power to the thremostat from the transformer in the unit/s.Maybe got turned off by mistake.

My honeywell chronotherm III says -AC any ideas


The problem is your 24v power source. I am unsure as to why you put "other than power source or batteries". If you did indeed check that your thermostat is receiving 24v, then I would say that you have a bad thermostat. Hope this helps

It would appear to me that you have lost the 24 volt power supply to the thermostat. In referencing the manuals for this thermostat, available @ www.honeywell.com, I've found that when the thermostat is not connected to the wall plate (plate mounted on the wall, that the thermostat either snaps or screws into), it will display the -AC. This being said, either the thermostat is loose on the wall currently, or your 24 volt transformer has died. Hope this helps.
