I turn my heater on, it is set on auto, but it never turn off, it's a new thermostat.


If the setting was at 80 degrees and it didn't turn off, that's because the room didn't reach 80 degrees yet. Keep track of the room temperature as well as if it turns off when set for a lower temperature.

I just installed a honeywell 5-2 progammable thermostate.. Everything is hooked up fine and I have my days, hours wake, sleep, leave...etc all set, but when it goes on.. for example, I have it set for...


You didn't include a model number, so it's hard to know for sure - but I'll take a stab at this one. Many of these t-stats have a programmable offset to reduce "hunting". This can be as little as 1 degree or more than 2 degrees.

This means if you set the offset to 1 degree and the room temperature to about 65 degrees, the furnace will heat the room until the t-stat registers a rising temperature of 66 degrees. The furnace shuts off and will not turn on again until the t-stat registers a falling temperature of 64 degrees. The average is 65 degrees, and prevents the furnace from starting and stopping numerous times instead of just once with the 1 degree offset.

You can further reduce the number of furnace start and stops by increasing the offset to 2 degrees. This would work like this when the t-stat is set to 65 degrees and the room is cool:

Room Temp Furnace
63 On
64 On
65 On
66 On
67 On
68 Off

The room is now warm and heat or furnace is off. The room begins to cool like below:

67 Off
66 Off
65 Off
64 Off
63 Off
62 On

With a 1 degree offset, the room temperature varies +/-1 degree (about 2 degrees total). With a 2 degree offset, the temperature about varies +/ -2 degrees (about 4 degrees total).

Also, when the thermostat shut the heat off, the heat that was made is delivered to the space instead of wasted by sending outdoors - so the room will get a little warmer even though no fuel is being burned. The same holds true at the other end. When the t-stat turn heat on, fuel is burned, but there's little heat until the source has reached the optimum temperature and then the heat is delivered to the space.

I hope this helps & good luck! Pleas rate my reply - thanks!

I have a williams forsaire furnace that won't heat a room properly. The main burner will light and shut off as the thermostat tells it to but the blower won't blow any heat unless the thermostat is set...


There is probably another thermostat buried in the furnace for safety purposes which could be faulty - it is very unlikely there won't be safety devices built into the furnace and no reason to assume those devices would be any more reliable than a room thermostat for instance.

You really need a service manual for your furnace.

Have a 1004fa model to heat a room. temp on


You may have a bad circuit board. Depending upon the age of the heater it may still be under warranty. Contact Rinnai (in US) 800-621-9419 with your serial number and installation date. Ask if they can offer a solution. Good Luck!

I have a new Goodman GasPack heating and A/c unit. I turned the a/c on for the first time this year and I'm having problems with the theromastat. When it is set at any set point say 77 the a/c comes on...


If the space temp is (example) 72 degrees and you set at 80 degrees the unit should not come on. The A/C comes on when the space temp gets 2 degrees above setpoint temp. What type of tstat was installed digital or old syle mechanical. I'm leaning more towards a short in tstat wiring
