    Mine is doing this same thing. I know exactly how the thing works. I take it off hold, have to reset the time and day of the week, hit run program and it very quickly goes back to HOLD at 62 with no time or day showing.

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

How to reset the thermostat to shut off after 2 degrees/CT87B-4008?


on these thermostats remove the outer ring cover and in the lower right side you will see a slide adjustment. move it i believe left for closer cycles and right for longer cycles. it should be 2* on either side of set point. remember that the fan is not furnace shut off.and turning back and forth will not tell you anything. just set it and see how it works then change it again if you need to

Thermostat says Heat On, but furnace is not running


Hi Juliegeee. I am Roger. I am going to download you a programming sequence I put together that will probably help. To test and see if it is the thermostat before reading all that I wrote hear, Jump or touch the two wires together on the thermostat and see if your furnace starts and stays running. If it does, this post I made will help you to get it going. There are many manufacturers making many different digital thermostats. With residential thermostats, the variations of types, methods of operation and how to program them has gone far past the market need to just plain crazy. The only reliable place (?) to get specific operations and program manuals for your particular product, would be from "customer support" at the "manufacturers" web site or phone number. The "Model", "Serial" and "Product" numbers of your particular thermostat are usually printed on a small piece of paper pasted in its cover somewhere. In most cases, Just the Name and model on the outside cover will be enough for identification when asking a question or ordering an owners manual. That said, here are a couple things that seem to be fairly standard. This is the best way I found to program over the years. Remove the thermostat from its base plate. Be careful pulling on it. They don't all come off the same way and we don't want to break it. Before starting the programming process, it's best to erase whatever may be in your thermostat already. Overlapping time periods can cause a lot of trouble. Removing the battery's will erase any programming that may have been done before now. The factory program is just for basic operation and they don't normally have any schedules in them. The factory program will not be affected by removing the battery's. It's also much easier to do all this while sitting at a table and not hunched over at the wall. Remove the old battery's and replace them with new ones. The battery's are used to store your programming so be sure to put good battery's back in before starting. Here are some common terms used in programming a thermostat. If the names I am using for these procedures is different in your thermostat, change them when writing this all down. One "SCHEDULE" covers a 24 hour block of time. Each block of time from a start time to a stop time is a "PERIOD" in the "SCHEDULE". Again, these are the most common terms and may very in your thermostat. Here is an example of how to program one complete "SCHEDULE" ----- Get a large piece of paper and write down EXACTLY what you want your thermostat to do in ONE, 24 hour day. Here is an example of one "SCHEDULE" having 4 time "PERIODS". > ----- You want your furnace to start at 5:00 AM and warm the house to 72 degrees by 5;30 when you get up. Write down "72 degrees from "5;00 AM to 6;30 AM, or when you expect to leave the house. Then write down "62 degrees from 6;30 AM to 4;00 PM or 30 minutes before you expect to be home. Then write down "72 degrees from "4;00 PM to 10;30 PM or when you expect to go to bed. Then write "62 degrees from "10;30 PM to 5;00 AM or 30 minutes before you expect to get up.-----< You have just covered a 24 hour period of time and created ONE "SCHEDULE". Each day of the week needs a schedule. Various thermostats are different in how they handle schedules. You will need to read your "Owners Manual" to find out how your thermostat arranges its schedules. To get started, look for a "SET" button or touch sensitive area on the display screen. If there is no SET button you can see, check your manual for the button to press. That will put your thermostat in its programming mode. With some thermostats, the display will blink or change color to let you know you are programming. While in this mode, use the temperature set point arrows ( up and down) to scroll through all the different things that can be set ( Programmed ). When you hit one you are looking for, press the left and right arrows or buttons to set that function or time where you want it. Press the up and down arrows to get to the next adjustment, use the left and right arrows or buttons as before to set that function. Keep doing this until you have gone through all the various functions and set points. When you have gone all the way through, and have all the functions set where you want them, DOUBLE CHECK all your times and temperature changes against the desired operation you wrote down. Be extra careful none of your start and stop times for the temperature resets overlap each other. If you programmed in Holidays or special events you may have, be sure the TIME and DATE are correct. Press the "RUN" or "START" button to lock it all in and start your programs running. Again, be careful of overlapping the times in each "PERIOD" of each "SCHEDULE". That can keep your system running all the time or maybe even not at all. I hope all this will help you to better understand these complicated devices called thermostats. Thermostats are a deep subject and specific factory information in your owners manual may be needed to get you through. I hope this helps though. At least a little. Write it down before starting and be extra careful of overlapping in the time "PERIODS" and you should be OK. Good Luck, and let me know if you need more help. Roger

I just installed a honeywell 5-2 progammable thermostate.. Everything is hooked up fine and I have my days, hours wake, sleep, leave...etc all set, but when it goes on.. for example, I have it set for...


You didn't include a model number, so it's hard to know for sure - but I'll take a stab at this one. Many of these t-stats have a programmable offset to reduce "hunting". This can be as little as 1 degree or more than 2 degrees.

This means if you set the offset to 1 degree and the room temperature to about 65 degrees, the furnace will heat the room until the t-stat registers a rising temperature of 66 degrees. The furnace shuts off and will not turn on again until the t-stat registers a falling temperature of 64 degrees. The average is 65 degrees, and prevents the furnace from starting and stopping numerous times instead of just once with the 1 degree offset.

You can further reduce the number of furnace start and stops by increasing the offset to 2 degrees. This would work like this when the t-stat is set to 65 degrees and the room is cool:

Room Temp Furnace
63 On
64 On
65 On
66 On
67 On
68 Off

The room is now warm and heat or furnace is off. The room begins to cool like below:

67 Off
66 Off
65 Off
64 Off
63 Off
62 On

With a 1 degree offset, the room temperature varies +/-1 degree (about 2 degrees total). With a 2 degree offset, the temperature about varies +/ -2 degrees (about 4 degrees total).

Also, when the thermostat shut the heat off, the heat that was made is delivered to the space instead of wasted by sending outdoors - so the room will get a little warmer even though no fuel is being burned. The same holds true at the other end. When the t-stat turn heat on, fuel is burned, but there's little heat until the source has reached the optimum temperature and then the heat is delivered to the space.

I hope this helps & good luck! Pleas rate my reply - thanks!

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.

Does the T8602C1095 have an anticipator that may need adjustment when the temperature set is exceeded, eg we set at 70 and it goes to 71-72 and then need to manually shut down system.


that is how they work. ther is a 1 to 3 degree variance up or down.it probaly does not kick back until 67 or68 degrees. a two stage furnace will keep a more steady temp.
