Make sure the temp on heater is set at 104. otherwise easy touch panel wont override manual setting from the heater. if you press the mode button on easy touch panel, and it doesn't change, then one of the relays inside the panel is the problem

I replaced the heat blend actuator because I was not getting any heat. Now, after replacing, all I get is hot air and no cold. The A/C was working fine just before replacing.


Do you have Manual Climate Control System or Dual Automatic Temperature Control System ?
The temperature control switch:
  • is a potentiometer that outputs a variable voltage to the temperature blend door actuator to set the position of the temperature blend door.
  • initiates closing of the heater control valve. When set to full COOL, a lever on the temperature blend door pivot shaft depresses the pintle of the heater control valve vacuum switch. The heater control valve vacuum switch then applies vacuum to the heater control valve, closing off engine coolant flow to the heater core.
  • is serviced only with the climate control assembly.
You may have disturbed something when changing the actuator , the vacuum switch o vacuum hose .

How do I change the temperature and make it stay. I set it at 72o and it still jumps back to 75o


Is it it 75 degrees in the room? Does the heater operate when set above 75? Does it try to heat when set to a lower temp? If the heater does what it should to heat, it is simply reverting to thermometer mode. This is normal.

Heat not working


Sounds like the air blend door is not opening to let heat in.

Engine coolant is provided to the heater system by two 16 mm (5/8 inch inside diameter) heater hoses. With the engine idling at normal running temperature, set the heater-A/C controls as follows. Temperature control to full Heat, Mode control to Floor, Blower control to the highest speed setting. Using a test thermometer, check the air temperature coming from the center floor outlets and compare this reading to the Temperature Reference table.

If the floor outlet air temperature is insufficient, check that the cooling system is operating to specifications. Both heater hoses should be HOT to the touch (the coolant return hose should be slightly cooler than the supply hose). If the coolant return hose is much cooler than the supply hose, locate and repair the engine coolant flow obstruction in heater system.

POSSIBLE LOCATIONS OR CAUSE OF OBSTRUCTED COOLANT FLOW
If coolant flow is verified and the heater floor outlet temperature is insufficient, a mechanical problem may exist.

POSSIBLE LOCATION OR CAUSE OF INSUFFICIENT HEAT
  • Obstructed cowl air intake.
  • Obstructed heater system outlets.
  • Blend-air door not functioning properly.
TEMPERATURE CONTROL
If heater floor outlet temperature cannot be adjusted with the heater-A/C control temperature control lever, one of the following could require service:

Trying to set temp on honeywell t-stat


I believe what your experiencing is the 75 degrees is the hold temp position...the display then reverts back to the actual room temperature...it doesn't mean the set temperature changed back to 65 degrees. Try to reprogram the thermostat schedules, and try not to use the hold function...just the temporary hold. (which is bumping the programmed temperature up or down until the next programmed period)

I have a Skytech 3301 for a propane stove with some thermostat problems.


Great question! It sounds to me like the Skytech's swing temp setting may be out of whack.
Here is a quick link to the product page with a link to the owner's manual at the bottom if you need: Skytech 3301 Fireplace Remote.
Below is an excerpt on how to check and modify the swing temp settings for the Skytech 3301. (I apologize if the copy/paste formats poorly).
The Thermo Mode on the transmitter operates the appliance whenever the ROOM TEMPERATURE varies a
certain number of degrees from the SET TEMPERATURE. This variation is called the "SWING" or
TEMPERATURE DIFFERENTIAL. The normal operating cycle of an appliance may be 2-4 times per hour depending on how well the room or
home is insulated from the cold or drafts. A smaller "swing number" increases the number of cycles so the room temperature is more
constant. A larger "swing number" decreases the number of cycles, which saves energy, in most cases. The factory setting for the "swing
number" is 2. This represents a temperature variation of +/- 2
0
F (1
0
C) between SET temperature and ROOM temperature, which determines
when the fireplace will be activated. The "SWING" number values are:
1=+ 1
0
F (.5
0
C), 2= + 2
0
F (1
0
C) and 3 = + 3
0
F (1.6
0
C).
SETTING THE TEMPERATURE SWING (TEMPERATURE DIFFERENTIAL)
1. To change the temperature "SWING" setting (1-3), press the TIMER/TIME and DOWN buttons
simultaneously to display the current "SWING" setting in the SET TEMP frame. The letter "S" will
display in the ROOM TEMP frame on the LCD screen.
2. Press the UP or DOWN button to change the temperature differential or "SWING" (1-3). See above
for 1-3 "SWING" temperature valves.
3. To store the "swing number press the SET button or allow 15 seconds to lapse, and the new "swing
number' will be automatically programmed.

MANUAL CHECK OF " SWING" OR TEMPERATURE DIFFERENTIAL
The operation of the factory set "THERMO SWING" can be checked by adjusting the SET TEMP 2
0
F above or below the room temperature.
This will cause the system to turn ON or OFF. Normally the system will only respond to temperature changes every two minutes. Manually
changing the SET temperature will activate the system in less than 10 seconds. IF the "SWING" is changed, then a new room temperature
differential will respond. Factory setting of "SWING" temperature is 2
0
F.

My Pentair Easy Touch inside remote reads 'No Comm' even though batteries are fine. I get the same message even close up to the transmitter antenna. My pool service looked at it and noticed


Your power center outside has to be "trained" again so it and the remote recognize each other. I don't have the charts in front of me but check your manual or one online. It's fairly simple to do.
If that still doesn't work, the problem may be with either the remote or the power center. Good luck with it.

My heater is heating to 100 degrees as indicated on the heater, but the actual temp in the spa is much less, usually 10- 15 degrees less


Press menu, scroll to settings. There should be a choice labeled "calibrate". You can change the temp reading here.

Have pentair easy touch controls just installed new water temp sensor. spa is 88 degrees but master temp heater shuts off because it reads 104. what should i check? the thermistor/


If the Easy Touch is reading the correct temperature, but the heater is not - you need to double check the temperature of the pool water with a standard pool thermometer.
Other things to consider:
1) The water is traveling too slowly through the heater. If the water is heating too quickly, then it will shut it off. If it takes a while for this to occur, then this would not be the issue.
2) Thermostat/thermistor is incorrectly reading the temperature of the water prematurely shutting the system down.
Make sure you really are checking the temperature of the water and matching this temperature up with one of the two readings that you are getting. Don't just take the word of the displays on either unit.

Water temperature thermostat misread


You most likely have a bad water temperature sensor. Replace the water temperature sensor that is probably near the discharge side of the filter pump. That should take care of the problem.
