Have you confirmed that the thermostat is programmed correctly?

Did the thermostat ever control the temperature of the house properly?

When you indicate "kick", are you talking about flipping the Auto-On switch back and forth? The Auto-On switch only controls the fan, and no heating or cooling (Auto - fan runs on call for heat or cool, On- fan runs all the time.).

If "kick" means making the heating work, and if you have the same problem for making the cooling work, chances are good you have bad thermostat.

If the problem only occurs with the heating, and cooling works fine, then the problem could be in the controller board of the furnace, assuming you have a more recent (1990's or newer) furnace.

My Robertshaw 9600 displays 99 degrees and because it is satisfied, is not calling for heat. The temp is actually in the lo 60's and falling. I've tried battery replacement, but nothing changed. Other...


Hmm. I don't think it posted the first time around. So I'll try again.

There is a temperature sensing diode on the back side of this thermostat's circuit board. This diode may have failed or become disconnected.

I'd lean towards its having become disconnected, as I've been inside an example of this Robertshaw (originally Maple/Chase) 9600 thermostat and noticed that the soldering on this part was of poor quality. So if you have a soldering iron, and know how to use it, you could probably fix it.

I have a web page (just the facts, no ads, malware or fluff) that talks of some other common problems with this thermostat and how to fix them:

Robertshaw 9600: Temperature rises too high, fan doesn't stop.


It sounds like the thermostat is wired improperly. One quick was to check is by finding breaker to unit and shutting off power. Go to thermostat and remove from wall take all wires off thermostat besides wire going to R(might be RcandRh) and C(which is common) Tape all bare wires removed with electrical tape. Now go back to the breaker and turn power back on. Nothing should be running at all. Take a voltage meter and measure the voltage from R to W(which is heating). If you read 24V then the thermostat is open and not calling for heat. Now turn the thermostat up so it is calling for heat. You should read 0V from R to W. If this checks out your thermostat is probally fine. You can check the fan the same way by going from R to G. In auto you shoul read 24V from R to G and in th on postion you will read 0V from R to G. If the thermostat checks out then the problem is probably at the furnace or rooftop. Either with the thermostat wiring or the main board acting up
