Question about Honeywell Programmable Thermostat Heater

Message: "in recovery"

I have a new Honeywell t-stat recently installed (5/15/09) upstairs which programs m-f, Sa, Sun. I have a new down stairs which programs m-f, Sa/Sun. I have one unit with a damper system, for my two story home. I'm not the original owner of this house. My upstairs unit is now displaying a message "in recovery" and while the temp is set on 83 while I'm out, it looks like it's trying to default to the 76 degree setting I have for the sleep setting - although, the room temp will not be nearly that cool. Downstairs will be cooled, as directed, by the "leave" mode.

Any thoughts?

The "in recovery mode" is refering to a thing called energy recovery management its one of the features on your tstat what it does- when you are using the program on your tstat the "in recovery" starts your unit early so if the tstat is set to be 70 degrees at 8 in the morning when 8 o clock hits it will already be 70 degrees in your house you can turn this feature off if you want in the installation setup codes

My upstairs temperature is 80 degrees and the downstairs is 69 Honeywell focus pro th6000 is set at 69. Why is the upstairs so drastically hot?unit is located upstairs& thermostat is downstairs


if there is no control of air movement between floors and you have it on cooling then any cold air will go down to the lower floor
or alternately if you have it set on heating all the hot air will rise to the upper floor
where is the system located (upstairs or down stairs ) and where is the thermostat located
to get control close any upstairs to down stairs doors or erect a heavy curtain across the stair well

Honeywell thermostat "In Recovery" Message?


In recovery only shows on programmable stats. It refers to the adaptive recovery when using the programming. Over time the stat will learn how long it takes to cool or heat to the programmed set point. For example, if during the day the programming is set to 80?, and at 4:30 the programming drops to 76?, if it takes 2 hours for the temperature to reach 76?, it will learn that it takes 2 hours and eventually it will start turning on at 2:30 so that at 4:30 the temperature is satisfied instead of at 6:30, at which point it is no longer in recovery

Honeywell CT3600 does not turn off heat


Its hard to say where its getting power from. It should be a normally closed two wire valve, so power must be fed from the tstat only? Not real sure how it's wired. You could try a round of MUSICAL THERMOSTATS? That would answer your question as long as its played properly.

Sounds like the programming on your thermostat needs to be reconfigured, but I need more information like the Honeywell Model number which can be found behind the front cove, but becareful to unsnap the t-stat properly not to damage the pins that connect t-stat to its base.

We have a tv upstairs and one down stairs, they


Since the antenna is on the roof the signal has further to travel to get to the downstairs antenna and as a result the signal is weaker. Install a device on the antenna line before the first TV called a signal booster. This unit plugs into the wall and gets connected to the antenna wire too. It will improve the signal for both televisions.

Heat on bottom floor no heat on top floor


pretty vague, but i'll give it a shot. i assume that your upper and lower floors are heated by the same unit. of course if your not sure you better check to see if there is a second t stat for up stairs in case there is a second unit that heats it. there may also be a zoning system that seals off upstairs ducts unless the zone stat for that area is calling for heat. so look for a second stat upstairs if you think it may be zoned. now to you original question. lets assume the unit is not zoned and only one unit heats both. then you may have a mechanical damper in the ductwork ,usually located close to the indoor blower that shifts to force more air upstairs in summer and more air downstairs in winter, these can usually be shifted as needed to control air to upper lower and are usually marked upstairs dornstairs etc. if you have no dampers etc, then you have reason to suspect the ductwork has come apart or been crushed before it gets upstairs. you'll have to go up or under the house etc and try to find duct problems.good luck
