My Simple Comfort 78100 thermostat wont heat above 72 all of the sudden. It's been working fine until today when I noticed the temperature 3 degrees below what I set it. I can't seem to make it go higher. Any suggestions?

Check for a tripped breaker. the fan works on a different breaker. You will almost always find them side by side in the panel.

SOURCE: Furnace doesn't reach desired temperature

One of two things you can try. Do you own a volt ohm meter? Anytime your unit cycles short like it is doing the control circuit which on this one is 24 volts that engages relays and controls the gas valve to open and close. I am thinking the heat exchanger is getting so hot it is tripping the upper limit which for the most part is around 180 degrees. So next time it turns off take your ohm meter and with the power to the whole unit off. Either turn the breaker off or there is a light switch that is real close to unit turn it off. Undo the two wires to the gas valve and ohm them out. You should have continuity if you get nothing check each limit switch should have a couple. Undo wires to them and check. If you find one that is open more then likely the upper one. They are a safety device that keeps the unit from getting too hot.

There might be another option increase the speed of your fan motor to get the heat out of furnace quicker. Look at the circuit board notice the fan wiring going to it. The Red wire from fan is low speed look to see if it is on HEAT on the board. You should have 4 speeds to pick from you could take the black off of COOL and swap wires and test the unit by doing that. I'm going to put a solution on this so I can come back to it quicker. Even though we a just testing it for now. ken

SOURCE: thermostat issue with comfort zone II.

Is this an electric or gass furnace - Eather of these can can have this problem its most recomendable that you call a seviceman .
in the case of electric furnace you may requier a new heat sequencer. And in the case of gass you may requier a new relay.

Verify 24 volts at the low voltage transformer inside the air handler. If it is OK, jump out the red/green and yellow thermostat wires. If everything comes on, replace the thermostat.

The fan relay is stuck in the on position. When the temperature drops the heater does not ignite because the fan is already running and ignition is locked out after the heat cycle starts an the fan turns on

Honewell RTH 7500 Temp Sensor Problem?


Check your installer configuration. If you have it set up, in the configuration, to match your system, and you can turn it up by 5 degrees with no heat, it may be a fault at the tstat. If and when it fails to cycle on, you can jump R to W, by touching those 2 terminal/wires together, and it should begin the heat process. If it don't, then it's not your tstat. Hope this helps!

The heater will not kick on. It's a programable 7 day that reads 69 degrees and if I arrow up to 72 degrees, nothing happens


Change Temperature Setting Until the Next Program Period (Temporary Change)
? Press UP Arrow or DOWN Arrow until the screen shows the desired temperature setting.
NOTE: The temporary temperature setting is displayed for about 3 seconds and then the room temperature is displayed.
Temporary appears in the display. The setting cancels when the next program period starts or when
you press RUN PROGRAM.

Change Temperature Setting Indefinitely (Hold)
? Move the System switch to the desired position (Heat or Cool).
? Press HOLD TEMP then UP Arrow or Down Arrow to change your setting if desired. (The display changes from showing the setpoint
temperature to room temperature after approximately three seconds).
? To cancel Hold press RUN PROGRAM.


The downloadable manuals for this t-stat are here, and the addendum, here. Page 17 and 18 detail thermostat operation I have copied above. It has graphic representations of keys that do not copy over very well, so if you have questions about the steps above, you should view the manual in the links provided above.

I hope this helps! Please take a moment to rate my reply - thanks!

Sounds like you have a heatpump. Is that correct? When it gets under 35F or so the heatpump just isn't able to keep up with the heat demand and will require help from a backup source such as electric strip heaters. The way the thermostat works is that the heatpump will work until room temperature gets 2F to 4F below what you have the thermostat set for, the Auxillary heat will kick in to help out. I think I am answering your question, please let me know if I have misread your problem and I'll try to come up with something else.

A/C units have a design temperature of 90F. Now when the temperature is above 90F they start to have trouble keeping up. Depending on how well your unit is sized for the house, you will notice when the temp is over 90F. I don't know if who ever looked at your unit checked the refrigerant pressures since you said he checked the temps but I assume he did, however, it could possibly need charging.

If you still have the instructions for the thermostat, then it will show you how to get into the menu and set the swing on the temps. I would try to explain off the top of my head, but its actually quite a bit off numbers to remember. Hope it helps somehow.

Check the drain line. Possibly tripped the float switch because the drain is clogged. Don't leave float switch out, you'll have to vacuum drain clear.

Temperature varies 13 degrees around setpoint on aux heat


I don't have the book for this particular unit but, check the sequencers that control the electric heat mode, as the regulator heat pump works good. The part may have a time or temperature delay that is too long for you. Also if it has a remote thermostat, check the heat anticipate setting. You will have to check the installation manuel, but its usually .6 to .8, but I don't think that is the problem.
