Question about Honeywell Programmable Thermostat Heater

1 Answer

My furnace works intermittently.

I have a honeywell thermostat and a rheem 90+ forced air furnace that is 6 yrs old. Occasionally the furnace does not turn on when the thermostat tells it to. If you manually lower the temp and then press "run program" it works fine for a few more days. Please HELP!!!

You may have a dirty flame sensor. There are a number of other possible causes as well. Rheem/Ruud/Weatherking furnaces also have problems with the connection on the blower deck.
The flame sensor sometimes must be bypassed around the MOLEX CONNECTOR in the deck due to humidity.
Hope this helps.

When i turn the heat up sometimes it takes a long time for the gas furnace to start ..why?


Watch your furnace when you turn the thermostat up...make sure to record everything that it is doing. If you have an induced draft, forced air system, then the heat sequence of order should go like this... Initial call for heat from tstat, Inducer vent motor turns on-pulls in the pressure switch, circuit board sends power to igniter whether it is spark or hot surface, then gas valve opens. Flame sensor senses flame, burner stays on, and blower motor kicks in to heat the space. If you notice any variance from this, then something needs to be checked by an HVAC Service Tech.

Does thermostat have to be on Auto or On to make my heat come on?? Dont know if i have thermostat problem or Furnace problem. Furnace clix on whenever it wants to, doesnt use the schedule i have...


If the thermostat is wired correctly, and matched to the type of heat you have ie electric, heat pump, boiler, forced air, gas or oil, the heat should run in either Fan ON or AUTO. Maybe you can explain your system a little more in depth...furnace type, M#, & thermostat brand w/ M#.

I have a honeywell thermostat model # th5220d1003-0636 & need to know what connections to make for gas forced air heat.


This is a Focus Pro 2 heat,2 cool thermostat. If you are connecting this to a single stage(1 heat) residential furnace then your connections are: At the thermostat the R and Rc therminals are internally connected so you can connect your R terminal wire from the furnace to the R terminal at the thermostat(this is your 24 volt supply for both heating and cooling. The W or W1 wire (heating) from your furnace you connect to the W1 terminal at the thermostat. The W2 wire from your furnace(if your furnace is a 2 stage furnace) you connect to the W2 terminal at the thermostat. The G wire from your furnace(indoor fan) you connect to the G terminal at the thermostat. The Y1 wire(cooling) from your furnace you connect to the Y1 terminal at the thermostat. The C wire(common or neutral) from the furnace you connect to the C terminal at the thermostat.

Honeywell CT3611 thermostat, not working..


if you cross the two wires and you see a slight spark and heat comes on, then the problem is in the thermostat, if not then problem is at furnace it self.

If you have a forced air furnace with an air conditioner attached make sure you have a jumper wire between Rh and Rc. If the Bryant thermostat had a wire hooked up to C you do not want to hook this up to Rc. Just cap it off and put it back in the wall or disconnect that wire down in the furnace.

Honeywell rth230b won't shut off heat


Sounds like a relay sticking. Possibly in the thermostat or possibly the furnace relay at the furnace. The next time it happens, unplug the thermostat from the wall. If the furnace still runs then it's the furnace relay.

Hope that helps...
