Re: programming the thermostat

It may not be a thermostat issue. It's very hard to help you when you only give us 16 words to go on, so I want you to do the following and get back to us.

Provide us with a make and model number of your heating system.

If the heating system has air filters, check and replace them if needed.

Make sure that the heating elements or ducts are not being blocked by furnature and that you can feel heat or air movement from all.

Tell us if the heating system is cycling and/or staying on al the time or not coming on at all. This will require you to move away from the thermostat and find the heating unit.

The more you can tell us, the more we can help you!

Thermostat is following a schedule when none is set

Your Lennox thermostat could be defective, but it may have been programmed by some inadvertent button pushing. The thermostat also has certain default settings such as a low limit that will trigger heating if the indoor temperature becomes too low (to prevent freezing of pipes).

At what temperature do I program the thermostat for a comfortable cooling(at how much do set the cool and h ow much should I set the heat). Thanks for your help

Normal settings are heat 70 and cooling 74 to 76 I like 76 if your not active its fine. They say the every degree above 70 heat cost additional 5%.

The thermostat although programmed to heat to 70 will not shut off and keeps going until ridiculously hot.

Are you confident that it is the thermostat? I would first try would be to disconnect the wire on the R terminal of the thermostat and see if the heating system stops. If it does, then you have confirmed that the thermostat is in fact the issue. Replace it. If it continues to run on, you have a problem with the wiring or control board of the heater.

Set back thermostat has mind of its own.

The Honeywell Vision Pro 8000 can be complicated to figure out if it isn't set up right from the system menu. There are so many things that you can make it do, sometimes the most common things are wrong. My question is ''what kind of system do you have, heat pump or not?, and is the system gas or oil?" If I knew these things, I could definitely help you figure out if the thermostat is set up right. I have the manual so that I can give you exact numbers. Just in case, you can email me at :

therostats have what is known as off-set deflection , or simplely put the plus or minus of the temp range which the heat turns on or off this setting is adjustable on many thermostats i usually set for 3 degrees if it is set for 1 or 2 it will run all the time refer to owners manual to see how to set this in program

I have just had a new boiler fitted and wanted to run the thermostat (honeywell cm921) on auto, the electrician set the timer to come on at 1 & off at 2 disabled at 3 & 4 and on again at 5 and off...

Complicated because I need more info....but in General a Boiler should not be on a Programmable Thermostat as it takes too long to heat you have Radiators in your house???Or ductwork for heat???It will make a difference...if you put the boiler on a program it may come on anyway as some boilers maintain there own internal temperature regardless of the thermostat.....if you want to run it on a program adjust the temperatures so there is only about a 2 degree swing....70...down to 68....back to 70.....etc...there should also be a switch in the thermostat to set for Boiler...or Electric heat...make sure that switch is on...otherwise its difficult to give you a more conclusive answer

Cooling temperature will not below 70

controllers more than likely on a memory lockout... kill the power and take the batteries out of it... leave it for 60 seconds and try again... unfortunately you are probably going to have to replace the controller, sorry

Thermostat does not stop heat pump unit

Most of these problems are the program settings on these way overcomplicated thermostats. You will need to re-read the instructions on setting the programs. Or bite the bullet and buy a cheaper and simpler one. If you installed it yourself, make sure the settings on the inside are correct, like gas/electric heat, and 24 volts, stuff like that.
