The switch on the right side of the T87 is for the fan. Down is the auto position which will cause the fan to run only when needed. Up is the always-on position, used to circulate the air constantly. If you want to shut down all heating cooling associated with this thermostat you need to look at the switch on the left side of the stat. To the right is heating, center is OFF, and left is ac.

Just purchased a home and I wonder if the thermostat is the issue for a/c not coming on, but I dont know the model #. How can i find the model #?


Those stats just snap on over the top of the sub base. Usually a firm but gentle squeeze either on the left and right sides OR the top and the bottom allow it to 'give' enough to pop off. Make sure you are GENTLE...unless you just want to buy another stat. Also the little rubber buttons MAY just tumble right out !!!!! Some do, some don't.

The model of the stat should be on the back side of the front cover.

From this picture, IIRC, it looks like an older Honeywell.

Honeywell 5000, 8000, 8000 iaq, prestige, round dial analog, digital Honeywell redlink. 1 heat 1 cool thermostat 3 heat 2 cool thermostat. does the stat u have do conventional a/c and heat pump. red wire is hot wire 24 volts not heating its your 24 volt control power. this will be r on your board and t-stat and red wire. y is for cooling mode and is yellow and will be noted y on both board and t stat. green is fan on the indoor furnace and will be g on board and t-stat and the wire is green. blue is the common side of the transformer labeled b on both board and t-stat. I did not see brown on your schematic I looked up I seen orange which is your reversing valve wire for the heat pump whether its calling for cooling or heat this is what changes the flow of Freon to make it to the indoor coil as warm Freon or cold when called for in heat or cool. the thermostat if a vision pro 8000 needs to be programmed in the installer mode which if this is the t-stat u have u need to read through the heat pump section. the green hooked to the orange doesn't look right on the print but that's the breakdown. http://www.manualslib.com/manual/277678/Haier-Hb2400vd2m20.html?page=11#manual heres your schematic

We had a Honeywell CT87N round thermostat installed. The heat comes on but the actual temp on the bottom stays much lower - like 8 degrees lower. Is there a way to calibrate the thermostat so that they...


One thing you can try is to remove cover, it just snaps in place.There are two plastic leveling posts at top two sides. You will need a small level commonly called a torpedo level to set on these leveling points.It should be very close to level,bubble in middle. If it's not look at base plate against wall and locate two lower mounting screws there will be a small slot where the screws go into wall to allow for slight adjustment.You will need a small screwdriver to back these two screws out a little maybe 1 turn.Adjust thermostat base so that level has bubble in middle and carefully tighten the screws,keeping t-stat held level. This should help some but it is not unusual for set temp. ont-stat to be off 3-5 degrees from thermometer reading. Hope this helps you.Thanks.

Hey John, man that ole T87 has been around for a hundred years and I have installed many of them, but I cant remember the letters on the wiring. Seems to me that it is R-W-Y, any way you will use the R and W. I have a t87 at home still in the box and I could wait till I got home to help you but Im sure its the R and W terminal. Dont forget to set the heat anticipator. Set it the same as the current value of your gas or oil valve.

Have an old honeywell room stat (type with round temp knob) and have taken off wall to allow for decoration. Now heating does not work. Any ideas on whether it's broken or alternatively can it be bypassed.


jumper red to white and it should bring on a call for heat. if it does then you probably damaged stat on reattachment. do you self a big favor and go to a digital stat. you probably have a red white yellow and green wire. hook them up same way on new stat. if you have an extra wire you can pull a common and power the new stat off the transformer, if not you can get one that uses batteries. robertshaw makes some good ones 9400 9401 etc. you need straight cool with gas furnace. they are great. no need to get to fancy and avoid the ones with programming and all. they are way to complicated unless your into lots of programming and tech details. plus those old honeywells are almost impossible to get perfectly level on the wall and if they are not level they will perform way out of whack
