You can take the front cover off of your programmable thermostat. Unscrew approximately 2 screws that attach the base plate of the thermostat to the wall. Look in the back of the base plate after removing it from the wall to see how the 2 or 3 different colored wires (ex: red, green, black) are hooked up. Make note of this. Remove the wires from the back of the base plate and attach the wires to the same posts that they were connected to on the original base plate you removed. I believe the posts on the back of the base plates are color coded. (Ex: attach green wire to where it says GRN on back of base plate).
Make sure the thermostat that you are replacing and the new thermostat are similiar in shape, otherwise you will have make repairs to cover up a space that may appear around the new thermostat.

Good luck!

Fan will not come on when it's set in auto mode


If your thermostat is being used with an electric heating system and the fan does not start in heating mode on auto; remove the thermostat from the subcase on the wall and check for a switch on the back of the thermostat. A lot of electronic thermostats have a switch on the back that says electric/heat pump and gas/oil. If you have electric heat or heat pump you need to switch it to this side. Usually this is set at the factory for gas/ oil. Gas/oil furnaces have built in means of bringing on the fan and electric/ heat pumps are brought on by the thermostat.

I have a new Rheem heat pump. The cooling works fine but won't blow hot air in HEAT setting. I have reset the breakers for heat pump and air handler, changed filters and pulled batteries and reset the...


if this is indeed a heat pump you rthermostat should also have a emergency heat setting does it work on that setting... a heat pump on heat wuns the outside unit and has a recersing valve that changes the refigerant flow ..is the outside runnignduring heat mode... if you turn the thermostat in emergency heat the outside should shut down and indoor heat should come on...of this is not happening you have a wiring issue if both are not working... braeburn thermostats usually have behind the cover dip switches... i am not exactly sure what model this is but if indeed a heat pump the thermostat should have a r,w2,y,e,g,c,o,and b terminal... rheem wiring should be as follows
red to r white to w2 , g=green , yellow to y terminal there should be a wire hooked to the b terminal usually brown sometimes orange on the b terminal that is your reversing valve terminal.
you are going to have to make sure the thermostat is configured to energize the b termianl and will have to go into the installer setup to do this...hopefully you still have the paper work on thermostat... most heat pumps use the o terminal for reversing valve but rheem uses the b terminal
hope this helps out some repost with anymore probs...also make sure the switches are set to electric or gas whatever you have heat pump or not etc. inside thermostat

does it not have a reveres switch at the bottom of the unit or if its the programmable type you must program both for heat and cold and the auto temp in the head will change when it needs to. However these are tricky to set up so if you want a step be step procedural let me know and I will give it to you plus there color codes. to boot.

The furnace wont turn on even though it says it is


not all digital thermostats are compatible with the manufacturers circuit control boards in the furnace. Hunter has had this problem several years ago. Other than that you may have miss wired the unit. usually the furnace is used as backup heat (during defrost) or emergency heat if your heat pump konks out. Are you switching to emergency heat for a furnace call?

You probably have one of the wires reversed or have the options set incorrectly as to what type of heater you have.  Check your instructions here: http://www.hunterfanhq.com/tools/sales/hunter/preseason/images/owners/42710.pdf
