Hunter Thermostat fan won't turn off

I have a Hunter Thermostat model 44260. When heat turns off, fan keeps on running. I have flipped the HG-HE switch on the back and that temporarily works. However, once the heat kicks back on again and then off the fan fails to stop. How do I fix this problem? Thanks.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, I am inclined to suspect 3 possibilities:

  • sticking relay contacts (if used) (a possibility, least likely);
  • dusty thermal sensor/switch for the fan (likely);
  • time delay. design feature, will power down the fan only after a certain period that the heater has turned off. This is to dissipate residual heat not only on the heater but on the immediate surroundings of the heater element (most likely).
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

I am trying to hook up a Hunter 44260 t-stat. The old one(not sure of model) has the following hookup. White-O Terminal Green-G Terminal Red-RC Terminal Yellow-Y Terminal then jumped to W Terminal...


Here is some basic info to help you. On the thermostat the letters mean... G is for your blower fan, and is usually green, Rc and Rh are power for the heating and cooling circuit (24v) and are usually red; Y (or in this case Y/O) is power to the cooling contactor (outside the house) and is usually yellow, and W (or in this case W/B) is the common wire, and is usually white. It kind of sounds like the people who installed the old thermostat followed these guidelines, so your best chance is to go to the heating unit and seeing where the wires connect to. Hope this helps

Programmable Thermostat Model 43157


On my Hunter model, there is a "Span" setting that allows you to change how long the AC/Heat will run before it turns off. Basically, it sets the acceptable range (above and below) your temperature setting. To access this press both the up and down arrows and hold them. "Span" should show up with a number (1,2, or 3). For your problem, change the setting to 1 so the AC will run shorter, and more frequently to keep the temperature more constant.

Hunter 44630 thermostat


Here is a link that will have wiring diagram it is for a similar model hunter. Also check your dip switch on the back of the stat to ensure it is set for gas (HG) or electric heat (HE) depending on your type of unit. Good Luck. Rule of thumb for most four wire systems is RED (power to stat) Yellow (Cooling) Green (Fan) White (heat)

I have no heater


Do you have gas or electric. Remove the stat from it base and look on the back you should see a switch marked HE and HG. HE is electric and HG is gas if you do not have it set correctly the heat will not function.
