Question about Honeywell Programmable Thermostat Heater
INSTALLED THE THERMOSTAT PER INSTRUCTION, NO CONNECTION FOR THE GROUND WIRE. AFTER TURNING ON AND PROGRAMING TIME AND DAY AND BEFORE COULD READ INSTRUCTIONS FOR SET UP ON THE TEMPERATURE CHANGES THE SCREEN WOULD GO BLANK AND BACK ON REQUIRING RESETING OF DAY AND TIME.ETC. UNABLE TO USE TO DETERMINE IF HEATER WORKS. IT IS FOR ELECTRIC BASEBOARD HEATING.
Well, it's an be only one of three things then (in order) -
1) Bad wiring connection, particularly the middle pair of white and black wires connected to the supply wiring, or
2) One of the breakers or fuses has tripped or blown, or
3) Bad thermostat.
If 1 is OK, check 2 (double check if breakers, sometimes they don't look tripped when they are), and lastly, take the stat back and get another one.
The ground is secondary, and it is assumed your living in a house where 14-2, 12-2, or 10-2 with ground was NOT used. If it was, hook up the ground. If not, it's OK. The grounding requirement was added to the NEC after your house or whatever was built. It is not electrically active or needed for this circuit.
