Honeywell humidistat stuck

Florida condo closed 6 months every summer. Honeywell humidistat installed 2 years ago in line with White-Rodgers ac/heat thermostat.
Caretaker found condo super-cold, ac tech found humidistat stuck running ac full time. Tech recommends timer in place of humidistat.
Q. Clean/repair/replace humidistat? Replace with timer? If so, what kind. Local Lowe's has only lamp timers. This is NOT the CT87B Round as listed. It's a rectangular wall mount with no visible model number

What i would do is make sure tha the hole for the wires that go to the humidistat is completely closed and that you are sensing the true humidity for the space also have the tech wire the so that the heat comes on instead of the ac for the de-hiumidification process.

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.

I had a new thermostat installed was not working correctly and was replaced with another. This one is even worse than the other. To get the furnace to come on the house temperature on the thermostat reads...

Hi, even though Honeywell do make good products, I would return this heat only stat and replace it with a heat/cool stat even though you have heat only. If you want to stay with the mechanical style stat, I would go with a white Rodgers 1F56-444 mechanical stat. Inexpensive but good quality. When you wire one with cooling on it, you will see on the new stat terminals such as Rh and Rc, W, G, Y, and some with O and B. The Rc and Rh will have a jumper wire connecting the two. Leave it on! If you have 2 wires maybe a red and white, connect the red to either one of the R terminals as the are connected. The white will go to W for heat. If you have 3 wires and the third is green, it will go to the G terminal. If not, no worries. In cooling the Y is for compressor, G for fan and Heating W for heat. Red is you're 24 volts. Get rid of that stat and get a good one. If you do go with the white Rodgers and you find the temperature does not match the room temperature on the cover of the new stat, you can adjust the needle pointer on the cover of the new stat to the exact room temperature. This is what I recommend to you. It will solve your headaches. There is a small screw slot on the back cover for this adjustment.
Keep me posted on the out come.
