Go to the gas valve and look on the valve it will tell you the rating. Set the adjustable heat anticipater on the thermostat to that. Look for something like .54 amp or .35 amp. If you have a amp meter you can make a 10 wrap and get it that way but that is too much work. ken

Pilot and burner light then gas shut off model 7900


How many degrees before it reaches desired temp, does it shut off? A thermostat is designed to shut the furnace off a couple/ few degrees before it reaches set temp. It has what is called a heat anticipater, which shuts the burner down, and lets the blower use the remaining heat from the heat exchanger to bring it up to desired temp making it more efficient. If it is more than a few degrees, replace the thermostat. You can jump out the red and white wires to confirm the faulty thermostat. If by doing this, the furnace never shuts down, until you separate the red and white wires. That confirms a faulty thermostat. Hope this helps someone.

Honeywell thermostat blows cold air on heat


Thermostats don't actually blow anything, the heating system might though. Check the breakers for your heat system, then call a heating specialist. They're really not that expensive.

Unit turns on but doesn't stay on


If you have a non digital type of thermostat and a gas furnace, it will have an adjustable anticipater as part of the thermostat. In a normally operating system the average anticipater setting is 0.4 amps. Or simply .4 . Incorrect setting can cause the heat to turn off early or late.

If the burners are staying on but the blower turns off you could have a faulty blower motor. Sometimes replacing a faulty blower motor run capacitor will extend the operational life of the motor.

There a many other possibilities.

Dual heat system, honeywell thermostat, auxiliary heat won't turn on


IT SOUNDS TO ME LIKE EITHER YOUR SYSTEMS LOW VOLTAGE WIRING IS INCORRECT, MOST LIKELY @ THE FURNACE. IT COULD ALSO SIMPLY BE THAT WHEN THE TECHNICIAN THAT INSTALLED THE T-STAT AT START-UP DID NOT GO THROUGH THE INSTALLER SET-UP & CHOOSE THE CORRECT SETTINGS FOR A DUEL FUEL SYSTEM. TRY THIS " SET THE THERMOSTAT TO EMERGENCY HEAT, WAIT A MINUTE OR TWO & SEE IF THAT TURNED GAS FURNACE ON. IF SO THEN IT'S A SIMPLE FIX IN THE WIRING OR PROGRAMMING & NOT SOMETHING MAJOR! GOOD LUCK!

I have to play with thermostat to get my heating system on


You did not make it clear if the thermostat is a programmable unit or not. I am wondering if the thermostat is not set on the correct heat anticipation setting. A heat anticipater is a small heater that helps the thermostat turn off before it over shoots the desired temperature setting. If the thermostat is set for a 5 degree setting, it will turn off at 63 degrees if set at 68. If the anticipater was set at 1 or 2 degrees, it will shut off the heater at 66 or 67. Newer thermostats will only allow the thermostat to cycle 6 times per hour so if you never reach the desired temp, you have to wait 10 minutes before it will allow a call for heat. Check the installation instructions to see if there is a setting where you can get the anticipator temperature closer to your set temp. Good luck.

Have gas furnace and this winter,began having


The Thermostat Wizard is an interactive tool that will guide you through wiring and troubleshooting your thermostat, as well as programming it to the most comfortable settings for you and your family. Simply answer the questions from the Thermostat Wizard to correctly connect, troubleshoot and/or program your Honeywell Thermostat. You can even print the instructions and bring them right to the thermostat to help make things easier.

However - the problem is probably not with your thermostat but with your furnace. It is most likely a dirty flame sensor - a maintenance issue. If you have not had your furnace serviced recently (more than 1 year) that is where you should start. Modern furnaces require regular maintenance.

Hi,Richmart
I'm Harvey the Plumber,
First, Your question is if your thermostat is wired correctly!

Assuming that it is correct, a common problem that most people and plumbers overlook is correctly setting the heat anticipater on the thermostat.
Assuming that you have a gas central heating system, then you must simply look on the gas valve for the amp rating.
For instance,if the gas valve printing says .4 amps then set the heat anticipater for .4
It's common for the unit to turn on and off erratically (short cycling) when this setting is not correct.
If all you are worryied about is the wiring, you must look at the wireing diagram that came with the thermostat.
Further diagnoses would requie detailed information about your central heating system.
Or the alternative would be to have a hands on tech help you out.

Feel free contact me again!
