Run a couple of easy checks:

There are generally two wires on a thermostat for heat these days if you use hot water or steam. If so, touch them together. Does the heat come on? If yes, the thermostat is the problem. If not, you've got a problem with the furnace. If more than two wires, for hot air, you can connect them all together for this test. NOTE where wires came from! R is the common heat wire. G is for the fan and W is for the furnace heat call.

Many thermostats today use a battery to close the relay. You should change it at least once yearly. You may still get a display but no relay action when the battery is weak.

If you do not get a response from your heat source, there are other tests...please repost and state what kind of heat you have...oil or gas, hot air, hot water or steam.

Heat won't come on. My hvac system worked fine throughout the summer but now that it's getting cool the heat won't come on. I have a Hunter digital, programable thermostat. I reset and...


if you have an electrical meter this is how to test for bad t-stat heating relay. (this is for the most typical furnace setup in a typical home)
first you will need to find and do several things at the furnace.
find the MAIN furnace switch and turn off. switch should be mounted outside of furnace on either side of furnace cabinet. remove both furnace doors. find the electrical circuit board, it will be the square thing that almost all wires go to or come from. find the 24v (t-stat) connection screws on the circuit board. they should a row of small phillips screws, and there should be a minimum of 5 screws in a row. the screws will be labeled as follows (not in certain order) R W Y G C . The screws you will be concerned with are R, W, and C. If there is not a C screw you will substitute the C screw for a unpainted part of the furnace cabinet in your testing. The last thing to find is the door switch which should be mounted behind the lower door. It is mounted so when the door is attached the switch is depressed. Use some tape or something to depress the switch without the door on. you will not have enough hand to do it manually during testing. get your electrical meter and your ready to test. always remember that if the Main furnace switch is turned on any of the electrical connections, motors, etc. inside the furnace could be energized at any time.

step 1 : with main furnace switch on, both furnace doors removed, and door switch depressed go to your thermostat and turn a minimum of 5 degrees higher than ambient. if t-stat isnt on then something you did is wrong. check switches.

2: with newer t-stats there can be a delay. so wait 5 minutes then go to furnace.

3: put electrical meter in AC and in correct range if you have a cheapo meter. you will be reading 24v so correct range is the closest to 24v but must be above 24v. take your leads and put one on circuit board screw labeled R, other lead on C. you should read 24v or similar. minimum voltage should be about 22v. anything less than 20v there is a problem far before your thermostat. if you read 24v move on.

4: take your leads and put them on the W screw (heat) and C screw (common24v). You also should read 24v. If you get a reading less than 20v or no reading at all then you either have a bad thermostat or bad thermostat wire.

No heat model 44100b


First make sure that your heating system is on (gas turned on if applicable). Check the unit for any error messages. My furnace has a blinking LED for trouble-shooting. However, the typical issues for it are: blocked air inlet and burner ignite the gas (alternatively, pilot light unlit). Once, the problem has been with the circuit board but that failed in the summer. Make sure the circuit breaker is on and that the cover of the furnace is fully seated. (This can be an issue after changing the filter.)

Next change the batteries if they are low. (This model needs new batteries every 30 days or so since it doesn't use AC power.) Make sure that the thermostat is set for heat. If this is a replacement thermostat, double-check that the wires were connected to the correct spots. (You should have labeled these when the old thermostat was removed.) Tighten all of the terminal screws. Use a unbent paper clip to press the reset button on the thermostat (just below and to the right of the up/down arrows). If the furnace works and the above do not solve the problem, replace the thermostat.

The manual for the 44100b is available here: http://www.hunterfan.com/uploadedFiles/Support/Owner_Manuals/44100.pdf .

I hope this helps.

The furnace wont turn on even though it says it is


not all digital thermostats are compatible with the manufacturers circuit control boards in the furnace. Hunter has had this problem several years ago. Other than that you may have miss wired the unit. usually the furnace is used as backup heat (during defrost) or emergency heat if your heat pump konks out. Are you switching to emergency heat for a furnace call?

Thermostat takes too long to cool down 1 degree


Thermostats don't cool or heat. They are just the control device that tells the furnance or AC to operate and register the present temperature and tell the furnance or A/C to shut off, once the desired temperature has been reached.

Most programmable thermostats will take at least 1-2 weeks to "learn" how long to run the furnance or A/C in order to reach the desired temperatures you've programmed into it, for the time you want it be that temperature. Variables such as extremely hot days and higher humidity will also affect your cooling system.

Give it a little time to self-learn and it should adjust itself after a week or two of operation. You might want to take some time to review and familiarize yourself with the owners manual to see what Hunter advises for setting up and using the thermostat.

You may need to have your A/C checked to see if you're running low on freon, or need to have the coils cleaned, need to change the air filter, etc.

Hope this helps and best regards!

I set temp to 74 and stop at 70 and decresing.


Sounds like the variances are not set right. if I am understand you. You set the thermostat to 74 and the heater shuts off at 70? If that is correct then the variances are wrong or you have placed the T stat in a bad location where it is getting heat from a vent, wall where there is a appliance or in a very drafty location
