SOURCE: Improper Termperature Readings during AC run

personally i'd just replace the thermostat, but try pulling the front panel off and look on the circuit board and see if there is a jumper for F/C or any other settings. you may try changing its position. you can also remove the batteries for 15 minutes and see if it resets itself. the only other thing it could be is a wiring issue.

When the furnace exceeds the temperature set by the thermostat, this could be indicative of several issues. The thermostat mounted crooked. When a thermostat isn't level on the wall, it can affect the automatic on/off function. To fix this problem, pop the cover off of the thermostat and loosen the screws attaching it to the wall. Straighten the device and tighten the screws.

If the thermostat is level and the temperature regulation system is still malfunctioning, the problem is most likely with the heat anticipator setting. The heat anticipator is a device inside the thermostat that governs when the furnace turns off. When the heat anticipator is on the fritz the furnace doesn't receive accurate direction, resulting in a heat system that either runs too long or not long enough. Usually, simply adjusting the heat anticipator, which is a small disc located underneath the thermostat cover, will fix this problem.

  • Temperature Does Not Reach or Exceeds Setting

  1. Thermostat is not level ? Use a level to realign thermostat.
  2. Anticipator not set correctly ? Adjust the anticipator.
  3. Thermostat not calibrated ? Recalibrate line voltage or low voltage thermostat.
  4. Range stop incorrect ? Clean thermostat and check .if same problem then,Replace thermostat.
  5. To clean thermostat.
  • Kill the power at the circuit breaker panel.
  • Remove the thermostat cover.
  • Clean the bimetal coil with a soft, clean brush.
  • Remove the thermostat body by unscrewing the retaining screws (on a round thermostat). Slide a piece of bond paper between the lever and contacts to clean them.
  • Reassemble the thermostat.

  • Thanks. keep updated for any more can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

    SOURCE: I have a Honeywell EMM-3

    Zoning, in the A/C world, refers to different areas of the house which may be cooled to different temperatures. Zoning is accomplished by closing/opening vents.
    Zone 1, 2, 3 etc. do not have any particular meaning, except to indicate zone control flappers 1, 2, 3 etc. which are physically inside the ductwork which determines the zoned area.
    Just because you have this fancy thermostat, does not mean that your house is actually zoned, but I am not to sure why such a thermostat would be purchased if it was not (unless it was free).
    Zoning uses dampers. Is there air blowing out of the registers?

    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.

    Sounds like you also have a high efficiency furnace like mine.
    Here is a procedure to slow down the number of cycles you are experiencing.
    1. press System
    2. press and hold buttons 3 and 5 on the bottom of the screen. (there should be 7 buttons displayed)
    3. set code to 240
    4. change setting to 3 for 3 cycles per hour. (your thermostat probably shows a higher number, probably 5? That is why your unit is cycling so often).

    I have a honeywell ct3200 with a trane xl 80 furnace. it will cycle on to the right temp, go off and cycle the furnace back on 30 seconds later. Is that normal? It is 32 degrees outside, set at 68

    Hi, check page 22 in your manual, it says "Adjust the screws on the back of the thermostat as instructed on page 7." Your furnace is a 80% efficiency but is also a high efficiency 2 stage heating system so try adjusting screws A and B both ways and see which gives you the correct cycling.

    Honeywell rth230b won't shut off heat

    Sounds like a relay sticking. Possibly in the thermostat or possibly the furnace relay at the furnace. The next time it happens, unplug the thermostat from the wall. If the furnace still runs then it's the furnace relay.

    Hope that helps...
