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.

When i turn the heat up sometimes it takes a long time for the gas furnace to start ..why?


Watch your furnace when you turn the thermostat up...make sure to record everything that it is doing. If you have an induced draft, forced air system, then the heat sequence of order should go like this... Initial call for heat from tstat, Inducer vent motor turns on-pulls in the pressure switch, circuit board sends power to igniter whether it is spark or hot surface, then gas valve opens. Flame sensor senses flame, burner stays on, and blower motor kicks in to heat the space. If you notice any variance from this, then something needs to be checked by an HVAC Service Tech.

Dual heat system, honeywell thermostat, auxiliary heat won't turn on


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!

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.

Heater days on for secondary n turns off...stays off for too long...how do I set it to stay on longer periods...


Match the thermostat heat anticipator with your furnace gas valves amp draw. For instance, look on you gas valve and the amp draw is .02 look on your heat anticipator dial and set it for .02
Most wall thermostats do not come preset. The heat anticipator wire is miro thin and can be severed by simply touching 2 24 volt thermostats wires together to check for voltage.

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.

I have a new York hybrid heat pump/gas furance


Did they check the sensor in the plenum. You are suppose to have bonnet sensor to switch from heat heat pump to gas whaen it is to cold for the heat pump. The bonnet sensor may be to bad. The unit is cycling ever five minutes because it may have five minute time delay.

Bryant programmable thermostat will switch on furnace


Turn the power off to the Air handler unit.
Remove the thermostat from the wall, (Just the face part).
Look on the back side of the thermostat and verify that the jumpers are set to electric and not gas, otherwise the fan will not run during heat mode, they come from the factory usually set for gas.
If this is a electric heater this will solve your problem, If it is gas then it will be more detailed. Once you put it back on keep in mind that most thermostats have a 3-5 minute delay so just give it a little time and the fan should then work once you have the jumpers in the correct position.

I've replaced my very old (mercury) Honeywell thermostat with a new one (round, Model: YCT87K1011), but I can't get it to control the temperature. If I connect the two wires one way, the furnace comes on...


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.
