Thermostat is not lit up and won't turn heating on

The thermostat was not lit up and was missing batteries in the battery compartment. It has worked fine for two years without batteries; don't know what they are for. I put two AA batteries in and now the themostat displays but it won't turn the heater on.

I called the repairman. The disconnect box had burned up and he replaced it with a fuseable box. All is well now. I couldn't have fixed it myself.

Heat won't turn on

Is the heat not turning on because the thermostat stop functioning? Or because there's a problem with the heater itself?

If the thermostat is not working, replace the batteries...if the problem is not with the thermostat, then the problem lies in your heating system.

We have a White-Rodgers 90 series thermostat that started beeping last night. We have had it for about 4 years. Does it have a battery? I couldn't find anything about that in the manual.

Susan, the "90" series of thermostats covers a couple of different thermostats made by White-Rodgers. Here's how to find your model number. With that info, I can check the manual specific to your thermostat.

In the mean time, check the display for the word BATTERY or BAT. (Flashing) on the display. Battery flashing or blinking on the digital display indicates low batteries. If the batteries have recently been changed and the thermostat continues to indicate low batteries, use a pencil eraser to polish each of the battery contacts inside the back of the thermostat. Do not bend them up and down when polishing or you might break them. When complete, they should all be as shiny as a mirror. This will assure proper battery back-up, allow the backlight to work correctly and remove the flashing battery symbol from the screen. Battery (Solid) on Display The battery symbol (not blinking) indicates a loss of power (24 volts) from the heating and cooling equipment to the thermostat. Normally the heating and cooling do not operate when the battery indicator is on. If the battery indicator is on, check the fuses or breakers, make sure the furnace is switched on, and verify the blower compartment door is closed properly. The battery display is designed to indicate the thermostat is running on batteries, so replacing batteries has no effect on the indicator. See No Heat/No Cool for more information. Note: Some heat only systems (zoned systems) disconnect power from the thermostat during a normal heating cycle and display the battery symbol. Millivolt heating systems always indicate battery because they do not supply 24 volts to the thermostat.

A beep often is provided as audible feedback when keys are depressed on many thermostats. You should check to make sure that no key is stuck in the "in" position or is otherwise activated.

Thermostat is making a clicking sound, eveything on display is lit up.

If the thermostat has a display and making a clicking sound, that sounds like the thermostat is working.

If your thermostat has batteries, then its most likely your batteries that are keeping the display lit.

You can try removing and replacing the batteries first. Also, check all your breakers. If these two steps fail and the system is not functioning, then you have a problem somewhere.

If your furnace has a filter or fan compartment door, be sure it closed tightly and that the filter is installed correctly - there could be an interlock switch that is preventing the thermostat from operating. Also, if you haven't already turned off the power to the furnace, do that, wait a minute and then turn it back on.

Obviously, make sure the thermostat is on, is set to heat and calling.
