SOURCE: I have a Honeywell T8131C

I tried all the tricks mentioned previously to no avail.

These are the steps I performed to get it to work:

1. Remove batteries and make sure the battery contacts inside the unit are clean.

2. Disconnect all the wires from the back of the unit. Be careful not let any of the bare wire ends to come in contact with each other. Make sure you mark the wires or verify that the color code matches the markings on the rear cover:
W=White wire;
Y=Yellow wire;
G=Green wire;
R=Red wire (low voltage DC); and
C=Common (wire color varies)

3. Leave the unit disconnected with batteries removed for about an hour to make sure all the memory drains. I waited an hour, but it may not require that much time.

4. Install the batteries in the correct positions per the instructions. The unit should perform a power up display test, then the display will flash the time and temperature.

5. Set the clock and the display will stop flashing.

6. Slide the switch to cool and/or heat and program the desired weekday/weekend settings.

7. Slide the switch back to off once all weekday/weekend settings are made.

8. Reconnect the wires that were removed in step 2.

9. System should be operational at this time.

Thermostat is bad. Relace the thermostat. I suggest having a professional replace the thermostat as there are many ways to install incorrectly and lead to expensive service call to repair.

Rth230b honeywell display screen faint


Mike, The static electrical spark probably 'zapped' the Rth230b Honeywell Display unit. If you have already tried removing the power (batteries) from the unit and after waiting several minutes; reapply the power (batteries). If the problems remain unchanged, then it is time to replace the Display unit with a new one. The static electricity problem is problematic and the only way to prevent the same problem from recurring is to discharge yourself before touching the Honeywell Display. As you walk across the room which (probably has carpet), causes the static electricity to build up on your body and then discharges itself through the Display unit when you make contact with the Display unit. You might try coming to a complete stop and attempt to discharge the static charge on your body by touching the wall first with one hand for a second before touching the Display unit with the other hand. Naturally, cold weather with low humidity makes the static electricity worse. Hopes this helps you. Henry

EEE error message


I just talked to Honeywell support - they claim that an eee error means there has been a "unique error" and that the unit will need to be replaced - cannot be fixed. They were pretty good about giving a suggestion for a new thermostat and wiring directions if you want to DIY. Otherwise, call a pro.
