Contour comfort control

We cannot get HOLD off on the control. It is set at 70 but our house temp is only 63. We would like to be able to change the temp easily. The previous owners had it programed to change temp auto. We can not get it cleared, its always on HOLD. Please help.

Normally, if you have a hold option, there should be a hold button which when you press again should un hold the setting. have you tried pressing the run button. this would eliminate all hold function and just run the programmed temperatures.

My clk200 convertable is contantly showing a temperature of 70 degrees or above and the heater either blows red hot or stone cold with nothing in between. Can anyone tell me what the problem might be


I'VE OWNED SEVERAL MERCEDES BENZ CARS AND IMHO THEY ARE THE BEST CAR IN THE WORLD. DO YOU HAVE HVAC AKA AUTO CLIMATE CONTROL? IS SO SET THE TEMP A BIT LOWER. ONE FEATURE ON THIS SYSTEM IS IT HAS A MIND OF ITS OWN. THERE IS PROBABLY NOTHING WRONG, BUT ONE OF MY BENZ CARS WAS SO HOT I SET THE TEMP AT 65 DEGREES AND IT WAS COMFORTABLE. THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THE HEATER DOORS ARE NOT OPENING CORRECTLY OR THE CABIN FILTER HAS NOT BE CHANGED IN A WHILE.

I have never used central ac before - how do I set it? If it is on 75 will that cool the house? If I want it cooler, do I put it lower? like 65?


As to your question 'will 75 cool the house?' The answer is 'yes' - if the outside temperature is low enough. Typically speaking you can expect your central AC to cool a properly insulated house to a down to a temperature of about 20-25 degrees lower than the outside temperature. For example - if the outside temp is 95 degrees. You could expect to get your house down to 70-75 degrees. If the outside temp is 110 degrees then you could only expect to get the house to 85 or 90 degrees.

So .. as you can see - your 'inside' temp will be directly affected by the 'outside' temperature.

As to the operation of central air; it is very simple.

I would suggest that you not pay 'too much attention' to what you have the thermostat set on. A comfortable temperature - is a personal thing - so - I would set it somewhere - say 72 and see how I (and others in the house) was handling that setting.

If you want it 'cooler' just 'notch' it down a degree or two - if you need it a little warmer - turn it up a degree or two. Do this "fine adjusting" till you have the temperature setting you are comfortable with.

Usually the more you can leave your thermostat alone the better off you will be from a comfort position and an electrical useage standpoint. Obviously, the higher you have your thermostat set the 'less' it will cost you on your electric bill.

How high you set the temperature is a balance you have to come to based on how comfortable you want to be - matched with how much you want to hold down the electric bill.

hope this helps

There are two sensors connected to the thermostat housing and i need to know which sensor is which and what they control. on cold days i cant get started


The larger of the two is the coolant temperature sensor. The other is the actual gauge temperature sensor. The coolant temp. sensor gives information to the cars computor & when the car reaches a predetermined temperature, the computor changes the ignition timing allowing the car to run at normal operation temperature settings. The temperature sensor gives info to the dash board gauge &/or temp. warning light. The reason you can't start on cold days is that your coolant temp. sensor is stuck in advanced mode & the timing is to far advanced . To remedy this problem change the coolant sensor. Good luck!

Furnace shuts off at 63 no matter where i set the thermostat


check the selector switch on the thermostat and if you have gas, it should be on HG. If you have electric, it should be on HE. If you have an amp meter(clamp on style), check the white wire for amperage with the heat on. What ever the reading(.7 for example) set the heat anticipator located on the subbase to that number. this is for efficiency and must be set to the proper setting or the heat will not cut in and out properly

I set the thermostat to 70 degrees but it doesnt cool down to 70, it seems that the temp in the house only rises, instead of cools down.


Setting Unit at 70* ? and not cooler ( dropping temp in the house ) Question ? does temp dop at all, if so the Unit maybe unsized, if the temps are going up then the unit is not working at all - maybe just the fan is running. If this is a split unit ( outside unit / furance). A number of things could cause the same problem - call a sevice company. it could be anything -from a Breaker to an electrical part, split Units have to different breakers ( fuse) . Check that first

I have a comfort zone furnace. If it's 50 degrees in the house, and i set my thermostat to 70 or so,it takes at least 24 hours to reach 70 degrees. The furnace starts up and runs normally for about five...


When the thermostat calls for heat it should run until the room reaches the temperature setting then shut off. Is the blower motor running and can you feel air coming out of the vents? It sounds like the blower is either not running or putting out enough air to keep the furnace heating. The blower moves the heat from the heat exchanger to the room, if it can't remove enough heat from the heat exchanger there is a limit switch that will shut the burner off if it gets to hot and that's what it sounds like is happening.
