My heat wont turn off

I installed a honeywell thermostat in my house last summer. I've installed thermostats before and never had any problems but this one is a nightmare i went threw like 3 before i found one to work with all he wires. i eventually found a more up to date version of what it originally had. well now i turn on my heat and it runs fine except for it wont cut off but the E-heat works just fine and cuts off and th a/c works just fine. i've checked and double checked and the wiring is correct to the best of my knoweledge.I need to figure this out without another $200 bill from the hvac men. Heat comes on but won't cut off. Trying to find info to set Cycles Per Hour (CPH) or heat spread on this thermostat. The Heating & Cooling is a Single stage heat pump ... Straight Electrical and old as the hills. It's on top of the roof so I don't know the make and model of the pump. Bought and was going to replace it with a Honeywell TH5110D  digital unit ... but seeing the wiring in this thermostat don't think I''ll chance it. Too cold to be without heat for three of four days.

    I just purchased a home and ran the Honeywell RTH3100 ac in the summer just fine. Ran the heat and I noticed the batt low was on. At the time i also noticed that the fan was not turning off. The heat would come on and heat the house and when the desired temp was met the heat would cut off but the fan would stat on and blow cool air. I changed the batteries and noticed it cut of once right afterwards. I have to remove the faceplace from the thermostat to cut off the fan. I am a new homeowner and have no knowledge of heat pumps and thermostats YET!!!

    The actuall unit never goes off. It will reach the temperature set and then cool air will come out and cool the house back down and then the heat comes back on. Quite an expensive issue!

No heat after installing honeywell thermostat H8110U

hook up the blue wire in the furnace cabinet where the blower section and the other thermostat wires are connected to the furnace. the thermostat you have uses a common wire from the thermostat to the furnace and this needs to be hooked up in the furnace otherwise you will have the problem you are having.

My heat wont turn off

if you have an emergency heat position we will assume you've got a heat pump. If you do not have a heat pump you have the wrong thermostat for your application. Need model of this thermostat, wire colors, termiation points (what terminal designator they are connected to), and if you have it where they were and the model of the last thermostat that worked correctly
