Question about Hunter Fan Company 5/1/1 Programmable Thermostat

The furnace won't stop at the programmed temperature set ponts

The furnace keeps on running when it should be shutting off. You have a 70 degree set point to shut it down and it's 71 degrees in the room, and the furnace keeps on running - why? Shouldn't it shut off as soon as it reaches 70 degrees?

My furnace runs to operating temp on thermostat shuts down then within 30 seconds try's to cycle back on three to four times. What would cause this.


Some thermostats have a swing setting that can be adjusted. A swing is the setting when you want the furnace to stop or start from the desired set point. For example, you set your thermostat at 70 and the swing is set at 10 degrees. Then the furnace will turn on 5 degrees below 70 and shut off 5 degrees above 70. Check you thermostats manual if it has this option.

The unit is on Heat, Fan Auto it's 36 degrees outside, Thermostate set on 73 Actual temp inside 70. Unit runs continuously. How can I get more heat. I tried Emergency heat and that doesn't help.


Have you cleaned the air return filters ? Wash them, don't vacuum or brush them. It damages the filter screen. Sometimes a thermostat will be out by a few degrees. If the filters are clean, try turning the temp down a bit to 65 degrees and see if the air con shuts down. ( If your room temp is showing 70, it should switch off the machine) If it doesn't turn off, keep reducing the temp by 5 degrees at a time and wait a few minutes each movement to see if and when it shuts down. If the machine keeps running, I would suggest your thermostat is shot and you will need a new one.

If the furnace is cycling on and off and not reaching temp there is a problem in the control circuit. If the thermostat is not satisfied the furnace should be running without shutting off in which case the capacity of the furnace is inadequate because of size or problems reducing the capacity. This could be caused by an increase in home size, poor air flow (dirty filter, loose fan belts, fan running slow, obstructions in the duct), dirty heat exchanger or burner, reduced gas flow, over temperature switch bad causing the burner to shut off early, or a few more technical reasons. You may do well to call a technician to troubleshoot this problem.

There are a few things it could be like the ignitor or the flame sensor is where I would start if the burners ignite then the ignitor is okay if they lite and then turn back off then the problem could be the flame sensor. The flame sensor you can take the flame sensor out and clean it with a piece of sand paper or emery cloth and it should sustain flame.

When the thermostat calls for heat it should run until the room reaches the temperature setting then shut off. Is the blower motor running and can you feel air coming out of the vents? It sounds like the blower is either not running or putting out enough air to keep the furnace heating. The blower moves the heat from the heat exchanger to the room, if it can't remove enough heat from the heat exchanger there is a limit switch that will shut the burner off if it gets to hot and that's what it sounds like is happening.

Thermostat temperatures not reaching preset Energy Star settings


Well with a boiler system like you have it will cost you more money to heat your house that way than if you leave it like it is. With a boiler system it takes a lot longer to heat an area than with a furnace. The best thing you can do is find a happy medium and leave it there at all times. If you read the paper work on your new thermostats they have a set procedure which tells the thermostat if you have forced air or boiler system. Do you have baseboard or in-floor heat how many zones do you have.

Temp shows 2 degrees warmer than what is was set to


sometimes the furnace does a better job than anticipated, i wouldn't worry about it, especially if the furnace shuts off.
the setpoint is the temperature you want it to be
cycle lenghts are determined by how much recovery you are requesting. for instance, in the morning when you wake up, you want the temperature to be at its setpoint. what the thermostat will do is make the furnace run a limited lengths during the recovery process.
