Question about Honeywell CT87B ROUND HEATING&COOLING MECHANICAL THERMOSTAT - WHITE Heater

1 Answer

T87 thermostat heat doesn't stay on long

My gas furnace is constantly turning on (2 minutes) and off. Is there some kind of setting (maybe the delay setting) that I need to change so that it will stay on longer.

This can't be good for my heating bill and I know it's not good for the comfort level in my home.

Is this truly a T-87 round mechanical or is it the new electronic version? If it is gold in color it's the old tried and true, if it's white it could be either. Pull the outside ring straight out. If it is a t-87 mechanical you will see a mecury bulb setting on a spring on top. On the lower righ (4 to 5 o'clock) is a heat anticipater adjustment. Take the brass poiter and slide it to the left as far as it will go this should increase the duration of cyles and make them less frequent. This is if the problem is truly thermostat related. If it is the electronic version of the T-87 and it displays this behavior only when it is very cold out, it is a programming glitch that they were informed of 2 weeks after it came out, because I told them. If this is what you have purchase a new thermostat and replace that junk that is defacing your wall.

IT SOUNDS TO ME LIKE EITHER YOUR SYSTEMS LOW VOLTAGE WIRING IS INCORRECT, MOST LIKELY @ THE FURNACE. IT COULD ALSO SIMPLY BE THAT WHEN THE TECHNICIAN THAT INSTALLED THE T-STAT AT START-UP DID NOT GO THROUGH THE INSTALLER SET-UP & CHOOSE THE CORRECT SETTINGS FOR A DUEL FUEL SYSTEM. TRY THIS " SET THE THERMOSTAT TO EMERGENCY HEAT, WAIT A MINUTE OR TWO & SEE IF THAT TURNED GAS FURNACE ON. IF SO THEN IT'S A SIMPLE FIX IN THE WIRING OR PROGRAMMING & NOT SOMETHING MAJOR! GOOD LUCK!

All gas furnaces have a pilot light. On the On/off dial, look for the word "pilot" turn it to pilot and press. You should be able to find where he gas is coming from(small stream) let go and air out the area. Press in the button and apply a long match or torch to light the pilot. Keep pressed for about a minute, then let the button go slowly.
If it stays lit, turn the dial to 'on' then the dial at th thermostat should do the rest.

The heat come on turn off but fan will not shout off.


if you have a gas or oil furnace then the limit control is probably bad. If you have electric heat or a heat pump then the sequencer is probably bad. But first make sure the thermostat is not set to "FAN". The thermostat must be set to "AUTO". Many systems have a time delay on the fan to capture the remaining heat after it completes a heating cycle. Usually several minutes.

Whats' so hard is the Honeywell thermostat has a built in 1@ differential. It is not adjustable.
You might ask your installer about a time delay relay installed in the furnace to break the thermostat heat wire (usually white wire).
Most time delay relays are 90 seconds. But that might be enough to reduce the furnace cycling.

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.
