What does the snowflake mean on a Honeywell thermostat in cooling mode. Also had the problem in the heating mode.

    I missed the rest of that, sorry. I believe when the icons are flashing you are in a time delay. When icon becomes solid machine should run.

The flashing snowflake means it's in a time delay (compressor saver delay) when snowflake is solid there is a call for cooling and unit should run assuming no other problems

The snowflake means it's cooling. If the outdoor unit is not running then the problem is likely outside.

I don't know what the hold temp means on my honeywell thermostat


1. You didn't indicate what model of thermostat you have.
2. Hold function on a thermostat with scheduling would mean to hold it at the manual setpoint indefinitely, in other words not following the schedule. 3. I assume the temps you're trying to achieve are C If you have a heat-off-cool switch, I assume it is on the cool position. Most of the honneywell thermostats with a digital display, will indicate a little flame icon when the thermostat is calling for heat, and a littel asterik (snowflake) when calling for cooling. If you don't see the asterik, then you may have a thermostat problem. Have you checked to see if your furnace (air handler) is running? Have you checked to see if your condensing unit outside is running? If they are running, then you have a refrigeration issue.

I have a blinking snowflake icon on my air conditioner, my air will not work. My heater will work fine but the air will not come on


When the snowflake is blinking the thermostat in in a delay mode designed to protect your compressor. If it does not stop blinking in 15min the stat is bad otherwise something is wrong with the AC

Honeywell Thermostat


Make sure G from indoor unit goes to G on thermostat for fan continous fan, if that doesn't work and you have 24 volts to R and C then the t'stat is bad.
For 2nd stage heat or aux.heat, on the indoor unit you need to make sure the wire W2 from the indoor unit goes to W2 on t'stat.
You don't need any wires from W1on the indoor unit to W1 at the t'stat because with a York heat pump Y1 is the contactor which turns the compressor on and you will get 1st stage heat, and for cooling the t'stat will also bring on O which is the (reversing valve) or cooling changeover relay for the cooling mode.
C = common usually black wire
R = hot usually red wire
Y or Y1 = contactor
W1 = 1st stage heat not needed for heat pump
W2 = Aux. heat indoor heat
G = fan
O = Cooling changeover relay
B = Heating changeover relay
L = System monitor
E = Emergency heat relay
