your pilot assy is clogged, disassemble the pilot assy completely and inspect the orifice. there should be a tiny pinhole in the end of the orifice, clean well with small wire brush and reassemble, don't forget to clean the thermocouple while you have the assy out.

SOURCE: 96 honda civic lxi overheating.

The car is not overheating if the temp gauge goes up and down by turning the lights on and off.  The gauge is giving you bad information.   You can confirm this by starting the car from cold, sitting in the driveway, let the temp go to somewhere BEFORE normal operating temp, then turn on headlights and fan blower on high, watch the gauge, then turn them off.   If the gauge moves significantly from the electrical load, you probably have a short or a bad ground connection.  

You have a short circuit or bad wiring somewhere in the front half of the car.  I don't know what thermostat switch you have replaced ... but it's not the problem .. stop buying them.  
If you are the original owner, was there an accident that may have damaged some wiring?  If you bought the car second hand,  get a carfax and find out where the thing was hit ... concentrate your wiring trouble shooting in that area.

I think it is something OTHER than the temperature sending unit or the gauge

SOURCE: No cool air. Thermostat AUX light turned on

I suggest you call a qualified service repair man. There are as many ways to connect a heat pump as there are people doing them. Nothing is standard industry wide that has anything to do directly with color codes, so it would be meaningless to go into them here. The terminals may be adapted to standard but but the thermostat manufacturer may not follow any terminal designations.

However you may just have an extra wire touching one of the terminals inside the thermostat. You can check this by removing the cover. Look where the wires attach to the terminal screws on the thermostat. Sometimes a new service person cuts the insulation back too far here or in the outdoor or indoor units and a "whisker" from one wire can touch the other terminals. A whisker is not the normal case try and move it away from another terminal if its is touching there. However, you may have jumpers in place especially if you have W, W1, W2... at any of the 3 sections, meaning the outdoor, indoor and thermostat.

If you can tell me the terminal designations R,Y, W1, W2, E, G, O, (B)... at the thermostat and the color thereon each, then at the indoor unit terminals or wire designations and the color there, then at the outdoor unit and the color thereon each terminal or wire designation there. I might be able to help if the above whisker check you don't find anything.:

Ritetemp model 8050c i have to reset it 8-10 times per day if it is set on 74 the setting will always go up to 82 and beyond.sometimes it will go up in minutes How can it be set to stay where i want


Are you using the "Temp Hold" to hold your temp at that temp or changing it without opening the panel?
(To change and hold the temperature until you return. .Open the door and push the TEMP HOLD button. The HOLD icon comes on. Push the UP or DOWN arrow buttons to set the hold temperature. .HOLD is canceled if MODE switch is moved, or by pressing TEMP HOLD again.)

Overheating


do a full system flush on the radiator and engine and the lines to the heater. flush them out. also change the thermostat and the temp switch, the temp switch sensor is the one with only one wire on it with either a 11mm or 13mm head on it depending what one was fitted. after it is flushed reconnect the pipes add the water and antifreeze, when all clean in the system the water should come out clean. 50/50 water antifreeze should be used. leave the top off the header tank and run the engine with the heater on number one. keep squashing the pipes as the engine warms up to help get the air out and keep the header tank full to the top. when the fan kicks in to cool the rad turn off the engine and leave to cool down when cool top up to the line and put the cap back on. wile you are doing the bleeding you should see the temp go up. if the heat goes to or above a 100 and the fan does not come on then the fan switch or motor may need changing, thermostats last for around 5 years, temp switches can last up to 5 years temp switch for the fan can be around 3 to 8 years.

Housesitting. RTH111B model. I cannot keep the


That is a NONprogramable T-stat. There is no program to overide, therefore there is no need for a "hold" option. To set the temp, place the switch on the side marked

COOL
OFF
HEAT

to the desired setting, and push the up down arrows on the front until the display shows 80.

The DISPLAY will revert back to the current room temperature within a few seconds, and will keep the unit on until it reaches the desired temp.

The set temperature remains at 80, it just shows the current room temp.

Can not get temp below 77


Is the thermostat set up for automatic change over from heat to cool? If so, the heat is probably set for 75, you will need to lower the heat setting in order to Lower the cooling. the stat won't let these settings with in 2 degrees of each other so the heating and cooling don't fight each other.

Rheem furnaace blower stays on


On a furnace the fan is controlled by a computer and a sensor ot a oldstyle fan thermostat. Basically it waits till the furnace heats up a little and then turns it on and after it shuts off it will run till the thermostat cools back down may take a few mins. In cool mode the thermostat controls the fan so it shuts down immediatly. This is why the thermostat asks you if its electric or gas heat. Should have a switch somewhere for this.
