Question about Honeywell Programmable Thermostat Heater

1 Answer

My heating/cooling blower (not the outside unit but the fan in the garage) does not turn off, even when my Honeywell TH8000 is set on automatic. What can I do to have the fan motor shut off?

    Same problem. Just change my Termostat thinking it was defective. The blower will not shut off on auto.

    Inside blower fan runs all the time on heat, but cycles on cooling. The unit warmes up and shuts down but the blower stays runing. After a hour or so the unit goes back on and it warms the house and shuts off while the blower never shuts off.

    Is the fan in the on position on the thermostat? It sound like it is on instead of auto. What kind of heat system do you have? Is air hot or cold ? When you turn heat down does fan still run? You can disconnect green wire on back of thermostat. I this a new thermostat that was just installed if so wires are not connected wright. If not you might need new one. You could have a problem with heater to. Does heater turn on when thermostat is turned up and go off when it reaches desired temperature?

Try hard wiring your 24 volt that goes to the outside unit to the yellow wire coming back from your thermostat make sure the yellow wire is on the yellow terminal on the thermostat (honeywell) i have run into situations when this seemed to be the only thing that worked

Coleman Evcon furnace blower runs w/ no call for heat. Temp is 5+ degrees above thermostat setting. (Programmable tstat)


When you say door are you referring to the front door or the furnace door? If the unit kicks on AND off by itself I would say it's in the tstat or the tstat wire. If it were internal I would think the blower relay or heat contactor/relay were getting stuck AND THE FAN WOULD NOT TURN OFF until you flipped the breaker. Good luck

How do I reset the temp my heat pump switches from electric to gas. It runs much more economically on electri than on propane. The thermostat is a Honeywell th8000. Code 350 setting I believe. Thanks


Heatpumps are more complex than an AC unit. Yes, there is a difference between a heatpump and an air conditioner. Where the real difference lies is out side in the condenser unit. There's a defrost board out in the unit, and depending on the brand and model, one of the wires will need to be changed so that the gas furnace will not come on. The problem with this, heatpumps use the heat that is available from the outdoors and transfers it to indoor. When the temps outside drop below 50 degrees, there's not enough latent heat to transfer, thus calling the propane furnace to operate. Without the addition of the furnace, you will not be able to heat the area properly. The only way to remedy this, is to remove the propane furnace and replace it with an electric airhandler with a heat strip for "emergency heat". The emergency heat term is used when the temps drop below the temps I mentioned above and calls for the heat strips to come on.

HAVE A HONEYWELL THREMOSTAT TH8000 NEED WIRING HELP HEAT IS COOL COOL IS HEAT


Most of the time the white wire hooks to W and the yellow wire hooks to Y....... W= Heat Y= Cooling In any case if you are getting Heat when you set the thermostat to Cooling....... Turn the furnace off at the ssu or main breaker and then ... Pop the thermostat off of the subase and switch the wires that you have on Y with W and put the wire from Y to W.... Here is some more information on how a typical thermostat is wire in the pdf..... Hope this helps...

My honeywell Thermostat reaches the heating temp. but the fan will not stop running.And yes the fan is set to auto.It just keeps running and running and running.It stays the same temp but will not shut off...


I want to give a simple explanation before I go any further. On the heating side of a unit even though tthe temp has satisfied the thermostat, the fan will run until it cools down the plenum where the air flows from the air handler. There is a bimetal switch called a fan limit that operates the blower when the plenum reaches the temp set on the fan limit switch. Now if your fan keeps running even after the plenum chamber has cooled down, then you could have a fan limit switch that is stuck in the run position and must be replaced in order to correct the problem.

How do you wire a honeywell round mechanical thermostat


What are you trying to wire up?
Typical Thermostat Wiring for 4 or 5 wire Heat/Cool Thermostat (not heat pumps)
4 Wire Termostat
R = Red One Side of 24 volt Transformer
G = Green Blower
Y = Yellow Cool
W = White Heat
5 Wire Thermostat
with one transformer for both units
Rc One Side of 24 volt Transformer
Rh Jumper Rc to Rh
G = Green Blower
Y = Yellow Cool
W = White Heat
5 Wire Thermostat
With 2 transformers one for indoor unit
And one for outdoor unit
Rc = Red One Side of (outside) 24 volt (outside transformer)
G = Green Blower (outside transformer)
Y = Yellow Cool (outside transformer)
Rh = Blue One side of (inside) 24 volt (inside transformer)
W = White Heat (inside transformer)
COOLING ONLY Thermostat
R = Red One Side of 24 volt Transformer
G = Green Blower

The model of T-stat you gave comes up as a discontinued model on Honeywell's web site, but it looks to be a manual stat that type of stat would have to be wired with a summer winter switch with electric heat, allowing it to turn on the fan with a call for heat. If yours is a programmable T-stat you would need to select electric heat or in the installers set up change the default setting for fan from unit controls fan in heat to thermostat controls fan.
