Thermostat Will NOT Turn OFF

System continues to run even after it has reached targeted temp. It is like the Automatic button doesn't work. I have to turn the thermostat to the off postion, to turn it off. But when it comes back on later, it has the same problem.

Most of these have a flag switch which starts then when the duct air goes through. If that fan switch is stuck it wil not turn off.

The hot water in our Aprilaire 440 is running constantly through the filter and down into the sump pump. It continues to run even when the furnace is off.


The automatic shutoff switch from the furnace to the humidifier has probably gone bad and will need to be replaced. However If the humidifier has a float valve in it like a toilet tank, it may be hung in the open position,which allows the water to continually run. Take the top of the humidifier and check the float valve's operation. It may simply need cleaning.

I have a carrier humidifier model BG49. When the furnace turns off due to reaching room temp. The water still continues to flow into the reservoir of the humidifier. Is this the correct operating...


Hello, The humidifier should turn on and off with the furnace's blower motor, If the humidifier keeps continously running than the solenoid valve is stuck open and should be replaced.

If your humidifier is working properly, then the problem lies outside of the humidifier. For example how long does your furnance run when the thermostat calls for heat? If your furnace is oversized for your home, it will heat your home relatively quickly, and turn off, while your humidifier does not have a chance to work long enough for it to increase the humidity. If this is the case, you could try to set the thermostat to run the fan in manual mode instead of automatic. This will give the humidifier a chance to increase the humidity.

Hope this helps.

Chronotherm Three thermostat vs Buderus Logamatic Computer.


The outdoor thermostat senses the the temp of the outside air, and adjust the boiler water temp according to what it knows is best. The reason that the boiler is running longer is the old boiler used to be constantly sending 180ish degree water to the baseboard, now that water may only be 140ish degrees. The idea behind this is to reduce off cycle heat loss, as the greater the temp difference between the air temp and water temp, the quicker you loss heat. The theory in boiler run time is this, the less times it starts and stops, and the long run times will give you the best efficiency. Hope this answers you questions.

Dehumidifier - hot compressor / coils not cold


If the compressor's running and it's getting hot and the coil isn't getting cold, then you are probably low on refrigerant or your txv or metering device isn't working.

Oil Furnace Problem


Hello Genna,
I am not a furnace guy but I may be able to give you a few ideas of things to diagnose the problem and get it resolved. First off, I assume you have a thermostat that you use to to turn your heat on. If it is a generic ( meaning : non programmable model) then you should be able to try this simple test. Remove the cover ( typically they snap on) around the thermostat so you can see the control mechanism inside. You should see few skinny wires ( similar to those used on a telephone wire) solid copper in various colors.. When you rotate the dial on your thermostat to call for heat, there is a small glass vial that has a drop of mercury ( which is electrically conductive) in it that makes contact and shorts two control wires together ad that is what calls for heat on your furnace. When the temp inside the room where the thermostat is reaches the tempertaure you requested, the bimetal mechanism either contracts or expands to reposition that glass vial to shift the mercury off the contacts and your furnace shuts off... That is the basics behind how your thermostat and furnace work ( generally speaking) If you can identify the two wires inside the thermosat that are shorted together when that vial of mercury shorts them inside it.. you can temproarily unhook them ( they are low voltage.. normally 24 Volts or less) so no worries about getting ashock or anything.. and short them together for a minute or two.. by doing that... your furnace should turn on and heat should flow.... Once you start your furnace this way.. unhook these two wires and your furnace should shut down .. It may take a minute or two ( depending on the control for it) If it doesn't..then your problem is on the furnace side and you may need to get the furnace control system serviced or replaced.. if it does shut down, then your problem is your thermostat and thats a simple replacement.. Also.. make sure the thermostat was properly leveled on its base.. The position of the thermostat ( meaning level) will dictate when that mercury makes contact and your furnace switches on.. OK..I tried to explain the works of this to you but here is a link to a Honeywell site that explains it in simpler terms.. The part about shorting the two wires together and then opening them will aid you in identifying where the problem actually is.. here is the link: http://homerepair.about.com/od/heatingcoolingrepair/ss/thermostat.htm

Hope this helps you more than confuses you..
Regards
