Honeywell T87f 3855 Doesn't Activate Heater

Hydronic Buderus system, Honeywell controllers (above).

Three zones, each master/slave.

One zone giving trouble.

In one zone, with thermostat set at 61 degrees, heater does not kick on, even when ambient room temperature is 51 degrees. Cycling the thermostat, i.e. "off/on", then setting temperature at 65 degrees or above, will deliver heat.

When running, heater will heat room to temperature set on thermostat (e.g. 62 degrees = 62 degrees). Problem is, thermostat won't kick heat on - even with 10 degree difference in set vs. actual temp.

Anyone have thoughts?

    This is a master/slave combination, upper & lower floors.

    The master zone is "on/heat", and set at 61 degrees.

    The slave zone is set at 61 degrees.

    At night, the temperature in both zones, under the above scenario, drops to 51 degrees by morning.

    The master is "on".

    The other two master/slave zones in the house also remain "on/heat" at night.

    No, boiler does not have outdoor thermostat. The whole unit, boiler, expansion tank, hot water tank, air handlers. . .everything is in the basement.

Recently purchased and moved into older home with a hydronic radiant heat system with boiler. Upon running the system in the colder temps, we are hearing a gurgling sound recurring in some of the runs


typically hydronic systems like that need to be bled, start with the highest radiator, the bleed valve have a little square head and you need to have a key that fits them, most supply HVAC houses have them sitting on the counter but you can ask them for one.

Hi zone controlled thermostats are controlled normally by a master control stat that is wired ( linked ) to each zone. If you had them installed, they should have left you with the sequence of operation to explain to you how these stats work, and what to check in case of light trouble shooting? This I would insist on getting from them.Yes, I am sure they will click as each one is energized, but like I have said on all commercial heating and cooling thermostats that are zone controlled, even on a residential application, they came with a master control that sensed the temperature in that area where the zone covered, and the master received a signal to shut off the zone and automatically checked the other zones to see if they were calling for heat or cooling and would control the zone as needed. It doesn't make sense to me to have lets say 6 zones you are covering in the area of your cottage all alone like a thermostat.The click would be that it is either turning on the heat, or turning it off. This would be OK I assume, if they are controlling the heat and shutting the heaters off when you want them off, to save on your heating bill, but a programmable thermostat would do the exact same thing as the zone controllers, as these are used in office buildings, and for controlling hot water valves and dampers in the ceiling, as they have zone sensors located around the building to sense the temperature and send it back to a main controller. The zones are called slaves to this controller.I have never heard of this brand, most controllers for zone control are Johnston, Honeywell, Barber Coleman. I'm sure they are good, but I will need to find the sequence of operation, which I will get right on now. Hopefully, I can find out. If not, go back to the installer to get the paper work he should have left you explaining all to you and showing you the schematic on how they are arranged and operated either alone, or together. It just sounds to me like they are a digital sensor that senses the temperature, and maybe preset, or is adjustable inside for a certain comfort temperature, just like a programmable thermostat would do in this case. Please do what you can, and rate me on this, as I know you will be kind, but without a main control, I sincerely believe you are back where you started.
Sincerely,

Okay couple questions here because either you have hot water baseboards or you have electric baseboard heaters.
- if the system is a hydronic baseboard heater fed form main boiler, usually this means your space heat is controlled by a zone valve which the zone valve is controlled by your thermostat.
-if you find the zone is controlled by a zone valve than it is possible the zone valve is defective causing hot water to bleed past the zone valve even though your t-stat is telling it to close.
- first find out what excatly the baseboard is heated by either water or electricity
-next personal message me and I can walk you through it

Replacing WHITE-RODGERS manual thermostat with 3 wires ( red, white, blue and installing Honeywell electronic thermostat RTH110B, how do I connect it? The heating is not central, baseboard heating.


I have only seen one Honeywell thermostat that would work with a 3-wire heating system.

I would replace it with a White-Rodgers 1F80-0471. They are about $100, but they are a good thermostat, and they work well with the 3-wire zone valves.

Most other thermostats have the "Y" terminal that you need, but do not control the zone valve correctly.

what you have is called a hydronic heating system.
this heating system is completely isolated from your water heater I believe this as most hydronic systems I have installed circulate water through the furnace to heat the house. If this is true you need only to connect your old water heater cold water supply side to the tankless and, old hot water side to the house system: the showers/tubs/sinks etc. in your home.
my appologies if I have missunderstood your inquiry.

Valve replaced , but 1 zone out of 3 no heat when


Hello. Each zone in you home has one thermostat controlling one zone valve. Generally, when a thermostat is calling for heat the zone valve opens and the circulating pump comes on to move the water around that loop. If your other two zones are both working as they should and you now have a new zone valve on the third loop I would suspect that the thermostat is faulty. Regards, Joe
