Honeywell - cm61ng- Keeps going on and off all night

I have tried to set it, so it comes on and off at certain times of the day but it still goes on and off all through the night. Not sure what to do?

    Exactly the same problem except it is turning off when it should but turns itself on at about 4 in the morning and sometime early afternoon. Have tried re-programming on many occasions and am about to give up on it and buy another one.

Instructions on how to turn off your optimum start:-

Turn off ‘Optimum Start’
Step 1 Put the thermostat in the OFF position.

Step 2 Press 3 buttons together (at the same time) which are the INFORMATION BUTTON (i) and PROGRAM BUTTONS 3 & 4.
This will show a code of ICL 1 – now let go of the buttons.

Step 3 Press PROGRAM BUTTON 2.
This will now show a code of 30t 1

Step 4 Press the + BUTTON (on the left of the display), tap through until you reach 15 OP 1

Step 5 With the TEMPERATURE DOWN BUTTON; change the 01 to a FLASHING 0. Confirm the FLASHING 0 with the INFORMATION BUTTON ( i ). The 0 will now be static.

Step 6 Put the Thermostat back in the ‘AUTO’ position.
‘OPTIMUM START’ is now switched off.

    Inadvertantly put my thermosat in optimum start mode. No clue given in the instruction leaflet as to how to switch this off. Jon Garnett's advice fixed the problem in a couple of minutes. Thanks very much

Mine does the same and displays a little symbol "OPT". I found the instruction manual online and it says

"Optimum Start means that the CM61NG will switch on your heating system so that your desired comfort temperature is reached at the programmed time, thus avoiding unnecessary boiler
firing"

So it may be that you've set your times for when you want the boiler to start heating up the house, not in fact when you want the house to be at that temperature.

I'm trying setting the times a bit later and will report back if it doesn't fix my problems.

This is a programmable room thermostat, with timed on and off temperatures. E.g on at 08:00 to give temperature of 22oC, now when you set it to go off, you also need to put in an off temperature e.g 10:00 at 10oC. If this is too high, and i think they are preset to 15oC, it will come one if it drops below this temperature, regardless of what your times are.

We have pro2000 set at 70.the temp goes to 64 or below before it turns on.what do I need to do?


Try resetting your thermostat and checking all time and temp settings in your programming. I have found that usually it's the thermostat programming that defaults back to a certain temp after a certain time period. Here is a link to the installation instructions to help your further.
