Question about Honeywell Programmable Thermostat Heater

1 Answer

Heater running continuously

Heat pump set to heat. I noticed it seemed to be running continuosly even when we lowered the thermostat setting to below the room temp. Hubby noticed that the indicator showed an Aux. heat sign as well. We turned the whole thing off to re-set. THen on turning on again the thing is blowing cold, unless the Aux. heat indicator comes on. Not sure what the heck is going on. Not sure if is a thermostat or heat pump problem.

Sounds like you have a problem with your heat pump. Your aux heat is a electric coil. how old is the unit when was the last time it was serviced? How cold is it out side?

Fan keeps going want heat on, how can i turn off the cold?


As you READ the owners manual below you will see that there is options to run a fan continuously as Well as an option for AIR CONDITIONING.

You will need to check the position of these switches to get the function(s) duh-sired... (sic: The word d3sire is considered as profanity on Fixya. Please review your answer and try again...
(my... how intellectually challenged can we get?? (TRULY SIC)).

I have an OLDER version (1F60-22) thermostat .. and have found
that NEW BATTERIES sometimes helps it to perform better.

Your instructions show your batteries as optional... so that might not be your issue... but at the very least I would set the WANTED temperature in HEAT mode... THEN Push HOLD.

Always take USEABLE pictures ...
so you can get wires EXACTLY back the way they were!!

If the FAN still runs CONTINUOSLY ... I would open the RED/WHITE (heater loop... which SHOULD stop the CONTUNUOUS operation (and point to the thermostat as the problem)).

there is also a temperature switch INSIDE your heater that also must operate (and release) for proper function... (assuming it previously worked... all wires are properly fitted & secure... and what-ever is happening NOW is a NEW malfunction).

BUT without the MAKE & MODEL of your HEATER ...
it would be IMPOSSIBLE to say the cost of that device.

Good luck & happy hunting

We have a new a/c and the system has heat strips. For a/c. we have had the thermostat set on AC at 72degrees. Now that it is getting colder and may need some heat in the house, do we switch the...


If your thermostat has an emergency heat setting this means you have a heat pump system.
Yes you need to set the thermostat to heat for heating the house.
The emergency heat setting should never be used unless your outside unit is not functioning.
The emergency heat setting overides the heat pump (the outside unit will not be energized).
The emergency heat setting will run the auxillary heat (heat strips) only.
When the thermostat is set in the heat position the heat pump will run to heat your house.
If the heat pump can't keep up (extreme cold) then then the auxillary heat will kick in to augment the heat pump until it satisfies the thermostat settings. If your room temperature gets 2 degrees below your thermostat setpoint, your auxillary heat will kick on. Example, say you are going to be gone a couple of days and you turn your heat down to 60 degrees. When you return and it is 60 degrees in your house, you turn the thermostat up to 70 degrees. Since you are turning the temperature up 2 degrees or more (10 degrees in this case) from the 60 degree room temperature then the heat pump will come on and the auxillary heat strips. The unit will continue heating like this until the temperature in the house gets to 69 degrees and the heat strips will turn off and the heat pump will continue to run until the 70 degree setpoint is reached.
Hope this helps.

I just purchased a house with brand new furnace wired to a RTH2300 Honeywell thermostat. It only has two wires running to it. I can't seem to get it to work in "manual mode"-where I set it on...


?? Connect Wires 5.

Labels don't match?

If a wire does not match any terminal on the thermostat,

see next page.

Quick Installation Guide

6

Alternate Wiring

If a labeled wire does not match any terminal

designation, see diagram below.

Do not use C, C1 or X wire. Do not use B wire if you already

have O wire. Wrap bare end of wire with electrical tape.

This thermostat cannot be used if your old thermostat had

any two of the following wires: R, RC, RH, 4 and V.

Place a jumper (piece of wire) between Y and W if you have

a heat pump without auxiliary/back-up heat.

?? Connect Wires (cont'd)

Set jumper JP1, on the back of the thermostat, if you

have connected a wire to the G terminal.

Incorrect jumper setting: An incorrect setting is

noticeable in a gas or oil heating system. When heating

starts, you will initially feel cold air coming out of the vents

as the fan is running before the furnace has enough time

to heat up the air.

?? Set Heating Fan Control 6.

HG Leave the jumper in this factory-set

position if you have a gas or oil furnace.

HE Place the jumper to this position if you

have an electric furnace.

Set jumper JP2, on the back of the thermostat, if you

have a heat pump.

Incorrect jumper setting: The heat pump operation

will be reversed, i.e., it will cool in Heat mode and will

heat in Cool mode.

?? Set Heat Pump Reversing Valve 7.

O Leave the jumper in this factory-set

position if you have connected O wire to

the O/B terminal.

B Place the jumper to this position if you

have connected B wire to the O/B terminal.

1) Install 2 AAA

batteries on the

2) Align the two

3) Push the

4) Tighten the screw

at the bottom of

Try checking the switch, you may need to have it replaced. Your heating system is still okey, but the
fan continues running even when switched off, Is this
what you mean? Then, have your switch checked, especially the electrical line going to the fan.

No interior heat / engine overheated 97 dodge ram 1500


From your description i would say the thermostat stuck closed, no heat, running hot, boiling in resavor, thermostat bad, replace. must of got real hot to makes that kind of clunking noise, I just hope for your sake thats all it is, of course i don't know the history of the truck, but right now it sounds like thermostat. There is an outside chance it could be a head gasget, cracked head, pluged radiator, thies are all worst case sanareo.

Thermostat does not stop heat pump unit


Most of these problems are the program settings on these way overcomplicated thermostats. You will need to re-read the instructions on setting the programs. Or bite the bullet and buy a cheaper and simpler one. If you installed it yourself, make sure the settings on the inside are correct, like gas/electric heat, and 24 volts, stuff like that.
