Question about Honeywell Programmable Thermostat Heater

2 Answers

Heater blower motor cycles on and off (frequently). I have a class 2 LR95329 Honeywell Thermostat

Last year my Coleman gas furnace would not stay running (the electric blower motor would not stay running). The unit has some age, so I pulled the blower motor out to inspect. It looked old, so I replaced. The same problem occured (frequent cycling on and off of blower motor). Next, I repaced the old Thermostat with a new Honeywell (analog type- # listed above). I also replaced the thermocouple with a new one. This solved the problem.
I just prepared the furnace for a new season (cleaned burner area, filter, inspected area, cleaned thermocouple with alcohol (pilot light had been on throughout the summer), and then, turned the gas off, waited 5 minutes and started the lighting process. The furnace lit up fine. I then increased the thermostat and the main flame ignighted. The blower motor started up in a short time, but then cycled off again. It began acting in the same manner as last year (cycled on and off). I noticed that when you touch, or bump the thermostat, I hear a click in the furnace area. This must be a device in the furnace area that closes contacts, to complete the blower motor curcuit. I'm thinking it may be the thermostat, or possibly the thermocouple.
What do you think?

Thank you for your effort!

    I am having the same problem. The blower for my furnace comes on and blows for about 30seconds, turns off for about 2 minutes, and then blows again, repeating this over and over but never staying on long enough to warm the house. What should I do? I live in a 1984 mobile home, so I'm not sure exactly how old the furnace it but I have the model number.

The clicking noise is a relay or switch of some sort. You are right about that. I have 2 questions. 1) does the thermostat have a mercury bulb in it? 2) when the fan shuts off and on, does the burner stay on?

I had the same problem with a Coleman. The problem is the blower relay. You can find this at

SOURCE: thermostat won't keep furnace fan running

You probably have a loose or broken wire to the fan relay. Check the wires on the thermostat first. Pull up on the bottom of the thermostat to remove it from the wall plate. You should see several screw terminals and the conductor wires that should be connected to them when you look at the wall plate. Check if any of the wires are disconnected or broken. If a wire is broken, strip a portion of the unbroken section of the wire and secure it to the appropriate screw. (The fan relay terminal is G for most setups.) If none of the wires are loose or broken, then you have to check for damage to the wires between your heating system and the thermostat or at the heating system. It could be a bad wire going to the jumper on control board or damage to the board itself.

I hope this helps. If the problem is not at the thermostat, you may need to have a professional diagnose and fix the problem. However, if you post additional comments about your heating system, Fixya experts may be able to help you diagnose the problem.

(we had the broken wires at the thermostat keeping the fan from working in the past. It's an easy fix if you are willing to handle small wires carefully.)

SOURCE: i have a honeywell thermostat t6360.the light

Many thermostats have battery backup as well as the 24 volt ac. Have you replaced the batteries to see if it fixes all of your issues at once?

SOURCE: round honeywell thermostat

Sounds like you have a T86 thermostat...take the round front cover off to view the Mercury switch. Watch the bulb when you change the temperature to a higher setpoint. If the bulb makes contact when rotating it up, and the furnace doesn't go into a call for heat, then it could be the thermostat, wiring, or furnace problem.

Troubleshooting thermostats

Most thermostats have a built in 'cycles per hour' limitation, usually 6 cycles. Some thermostats have an adjustable one, but most usually do not need it. I'm thinking you are hearing a fan cycling on and off on its thermal sensing control and its not the heat at all. Unless you have a fan relay on an electronic control board that is energized in the heat mode, (and it is a gas furnace) it probably isn't the thermostat causing the issue at all. If its an electric furnace, well....that's another troubleshooting issue altogether.

Coleman presidential II furnace blower on and off

Sounds like the flame sensor. But it could be the thermostat. Is the furnace standing pilot or electronic spark or hot surface ignition. I would start by checking thermostat. Turn power off to furnace take thermostat off wall and take wires marked r & w and connect them together. Turn power back on if furnace works then change out thermostat.Most eclectronic ignition Furnaces have a flam sensor, You could take flame sensor out and clean it up with steel wool or wire brush.

Furnace shutting on and off every four to five minutes all day

Have you had furnace cleaned? Have you changed filter or took filter out and try heater? Have you checked return grill to make sure you don't have anything in front of it. Return grill or duct could be blocked or two small. Blower motor could be going off on thermal overload. Does the heater do the same thing when it is 20 degrees outside. The other thing it could be is furnace is not big enough.
Good luck let me know what you find out
