I replaced mine a few months ago with:

Honeywell Programmable Thermostat ENERGY STAR®
Model: RTH6300B1056

It's also 5+1+1 and another nifty feature is that it automatically adjusts
the start time. It cost $59 and right now Lowes has a rebate with it for a
$5 gift card. I've never had a problem with mine. I can't comment on the fan
control, however, since my AC is only wired with three wires and is missing
the fourth fan control wire.

get yourself a White_rodgers 90 series 5+1+1 from a local HVAC dealer.
Skip the home depot stuff as it cost almost as much.

the w-r has filter replacement timer, 5+1+1 day programmability,
seperate temperature settings for heat vs. a/c, and an auto setting to
decide which it needs when. vacation settings. Lockout. Also the fan
is programmable to some degree. During the summer my fan stays on while
I am home and I rarely need the a/c compressor to kick on (house gets
more humid this way though)

check them out at their website. im happy with mine. They also have
simple models.

4-wire typical wiring of a thermostat is: Y (Yellow) G (Green) W(white) and R (red). Inspect the thermostat to see if it has a jumperfrom R1 to R2. If not, put your red wire on R2. On a 5-wire thermostatyou may have a blue wire. This will go to the common terminal (usuallyC but sometimes B) check the inline fuse in the air handler to see ifit has blown. Replace it only after wiring the thermostat correctly.

if you have a newer t-stat your heat pump reversing valve is either o or b depending on the type of system you have

Frigidaire AC window unit, model fam185r2a (18,500 BTU) only cools for a few minutes before it cycles off and just fan blows. Then a few min later cool air cycles back on. Is this a thermostat issue?

The window units normally have a sensor thats attached to the front of the indoor coil. This controls the thermostat. I usually pull this sensor away from the coil because it stops cooling before the room is cool. It is attached to the cold coil so it senses the coil temp, not the room temp. You can normally see it when you remove the air filter. Don't break it! It may be a wire or small copper tube

Compressor not working

You have power coming into the contacts, but will the contacts pull in? If not and I'd asmune they aren't, with unit on and thermostat calling for cool do you have 24 volts on the coil side of contact. That will be where a small wire will connect on each side. If you carefully pust in on contacts and the unit will run, more than likely the coil is bad and will need to replace complete contactor. Look for a broken wire from air handler to the outside unit. It will be 2 thermostat wires in a brown sheave.

I have a Honeywell RTH230 thermostat. Ive read the manual top to bottom and have set the temperature to 70 degrees and followed all the directions. But my home is still almost 85 degrees, and even hotter...

i am assuming the unit is coming on and all... there could be an issue with the refrigerant in the system such as a leak.. need to make sure the indoor fan is coming on and also that the outside unit is coming on..there are 2 copper lines at outside unit that are refrigerant lines the larger one should be cool and the small line should be warm.. there also should be hot air blowing out of the outside unit... if this is not happening you have a problem with either the freon has leaked or the compressor may not be coming on inside the outside unit \

Over heating

Thermostats in cars are often neglected, if not totally forgotten, units. Yet they play an important role in the general performance of cars by restricting water flow until the engine has warmed-up. Thermostats are heat sensitive valves that open and close. On cars they prevent circulation of coolant to the radiator until the engine is warm enough. When the thermostat is closed water only flows through the water pump and water jacket to let the engine warm quickly. When the thermostat opens, water can then pass through the radiator for general cooling.
google_protectAndRun("ads_core.google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad); Having a car that warms quickly is particularly useful in cold weather when you want to use your car heater as soon as possible. The thermostat is in a small housing positioned where the top radiator hose connects to the engine. The best time to check or change a thermostat is when you are servicing your radiator because you need to drain the cooling system
first. Hence, a thermostat change is a good time to flush and clean your cooling system, check all radiator hoses and the radiator pressure cap. Be sure you have the correct cap on your radiator and it is not rusted. Thermostats are small, inexpensive items. You can test them by heating in water and checking their operating temperature with a thermometer. However it really is quicker and ultimately more reliable to simply fit a new one,
1. thermostat common problems (replace every 50-60k miles)
2. thermostat switch sensor (which turn your cooling fan on and off)
3. check and see if the cooling fans is running when the engine get to its operation temperature. (fan motor can be fault)

Need help with electrical for Armstrong 3.5 Ton 16 SEER

Next item: What is the exact model of the thermostat? It should consist of TH6###?#### where the "#" are numbers, and the "?" is a letter. And also you can check the following:

1. Remove the thermostat by gently pulling straight out from the wall to remove it from the sub base and tell me is you have 1 or 2 terminal blocks on the sub base. This will tell me if your thermostat is a 1 stage cool or 2 stage cool thermostat.

2. Check the air handler low voltace connections and check that the wiring is connected to both Y1 and Y2 and that these wires are connected to Y1 and Y2 at the condensing unit.

It may be the case of not connecting the condensing unit 2nd stage wiring, the thermostat is only 1 stage cool, or some similiar wiring mishap. Have seen it many times over the years. People get in a hurry and forget the small things. But if this was professionally installed, you paid a good price, if you find that the wiring is incorrect or the themostat is wrong, you should call your installing contractor and demand they return to correct this issue to maintain your factory warranty. If you have any addtional questions, or concerns or need help with any of the above, you can contact me again through here or via my company website at .

Window unit no longer cooling

you could pull the front cover off and see if there is a loose wire in the control box (behind where the control knobs are). it could just be a bad thermostat. you will see a copper wire with a silverish end on it coming out of the t-stat, try holding it between your fingers for a few minutes to warm it up, turn the t-stat to coldest setting possible, turn unit on, and then see if the compressor will kick on. if neither of those things help you could try replacing the thermostat, probably not expensive from samsung if the unit isn't too old. if that doesn't help either then the compressor probably bit the dust. but if not its worth fixing! hope that helps.

Honeywell Old T874D1512 dual heat/cool thermostat

I think I understand what you are saying....First, that switch marked On and Auto, is to control the blower fan only. So when you switch that to On, it turns on the blower, but not the actual heat. It sounds more like a problem at the furnace then at the thermostat.

Control panel erase from the windows

hi The thermostat control is usually mounted inside the refrigerator. Its visible control knob is turned to regulate the refrigerator/freezer temperature. The workability of this control can be tested in various ways, depending on the problem. To test the thermostat control:

Step 1:
 If the compressor runs all the time, turn the control knob to the OFF position. If the compressor still runs, unplug the unit, then pull off the control knob and remove the screws holding the thermostat in place. Pull out the thermostat and remove either the red or the blue wire from its terminal. Plug in the unit. If the compressor doesn't run, the thermostat is faulty. Replace it with a new thermostat.

Step 2: 
If the compressor runs after the wire is removed from its terminal, there is probably a short circuit somewhere in the unit's wiring. In this case, don't try to fix the problem yourself; call a professional service person.

Step 3: 
If the refrigerator or freezer runs but the box doesn't cool, unplug the unit and remove the thermostat with a screwdriver. Disconnect both wires from the thermostat. Tape the ends of the wires together with electrical tape, and plug in the appliance. If the refrigerator starts and runs normally, the thermostat is faulty. Replace it with a new one of the same type. Connect the new thermostat the same way the old one was connected.

Step 4: 
If the freezer compartment is normal but the refrigerator box doesn't cool, set the dials that control both compartments to mid-range. Remove these knobs (they're usually friction-fit). Then unscrew the temperature control housing; you'll see an air duct near the control. Replace the knob on the freezer thermostat and turn the control to the OFF position. Open the refrigerator door and look closely at the air duct. If this duct doesn't open wider in about ten minutes, the control is faulty. Replace the control with a new one of the same type. Connect the new control the same way the old one was connected.

My 2 T. coleman heatpump stopped working, it makes a feint buz but does not start.

If you are not comfortable working around High Voltage, do not attempt to fix anything. At your own risk, there will be two small wires going to your outside unit and one set of larger wires. The larger set powers the unit with High Voltage. Leave them alone. The smaller wires carry Low Voltage and energize the control on the condenser. If your thermostat is not sending a signal, these two small wires will not have any voltage running thru them. Check for 24 volts when the thermostat is calling for Cool. For a quick test, jump out the terminals where the two wires connect and see if the outside unit starts. If not, you have issues that will require a technician. If it does start, check the wires for any breaks or bare spots and replace if you can. Check the thermostat and make sure it is in fact calling for Cool. Replace any batteries in it or jump out the same two wires at the thermostat and see if it starts. You may need to replace the thermostat if it does start.
