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.

My Honeywell EMM-3 zone controller system LED is flashing orange, indicating DAT fault. However I do not have any sensors hooked up.


Check to make sure your compressor is running fir the zone in question. DAT is a discharge air temperature reading that the unit uses to monitor itself. If you're sure you never had one, check the parameters and programming of your unit to make sure something didn't glitch and enable your DAT sensor

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, Have you jumpered Rc and Rh??? I bet you just have the red wire under the Rc terminal only...heat goes on when power goes from Rh to W... the white wire should be on W and energized (24v) when the t-stat is calling for heat...

Here is a list of each common terminal and what their commonly used for. Alsolisted is what colors are commonly used. NEVER ASSUME these are what youhave. Verify all your wires by following each to each piece of equipment. Thiswill help you to be able to match your equipment with the terminal.

Here is the rest of the tip that I wrote...

I had a Honeywell F4- 0019 motorised two port valve on my central heating that has failed. I have replaced it with a Honeywell valve from Thompsons Plumbase, but on fitting noticed the new valve has six...


I'm doing a lot of guessing here for lack of information. You have a residential boiler and hydronic heating system that is zoned around your home and each zone has an independent thermostat?
Again, I need to guess. The old valve was spring return with yellow, blue and red wires? If all is true so far, then I think you had a single end switch with one COMMON - one NORMALLY OPEN and one NORMALLY CLOSED contact. 6 wires would make up 2 end switches. Brown is a normal color for one lead of an end switch. If this is all true, your new switches are probably NORMALLY OPEN and you only need 1. If this did not help you, give me a better description of old and new and I will get this correctly answered for you.

Have a dual zone system. When zone 1 is working zone 2 is getting air and vice versa. What is the problem?


Try reversing the wiring at the thermostat or control station between those two circuits. There should only be one wire to change for each zone. (Not a White one)

We recently had Marley Double line break interrupter Thermostats installed as we could not turn our old thermostats "off". The lowest setting was 5'F. The heaters are in our cottage and when we...


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,
