Is this a new installation? If so the elements may be pulling more load than the circuit can handle. That or you have a weak breaker. See what size the breaker is I.E. 20, 30, whatever, and see how may watts the heater is making. Divide that into volts (ohms law) and that should give you the amp draw. If its higher than the number on the breaker, then its overloading. If its lower but the breaker still trips, then change it.

I have a honeywell smart thermostat and it stopped working and I have no air conditioner

When did it last work? The first thing I would do is turn off the breaker that powers the A/C system. If it's a central system there are probably two 2-pole breakers (outside unit and air handler) turn them off, wait a few minutes and turn them back on. Let the system re-set (compressor time-out is at least 5 minutes after turning it back on. After the system is reset, see if your thermostat is working correctly and if not, try this link for an overview of Honeywell troubleshooting. Honeywell Thermostat Troubleshooting Six Step Guide

Cool air does not come out the vents, thermostat stays at 84 degrees or goes up higher.

Check your o.d. unit to see if its running. If not check your breakers. Try turning tstat off and a few mins later turn it on and check to see if its running. If it is running, check for ice on the copper tubes that connect the indoor to the outdoor units. The large, insulated tube will freeze. You can look inside the o.d. to see any ice. If there is ice turn the cooling off and the fans' auto/on switch to the on position for a few hours. Check air filter and try to cool again. You may need to call for service if these don't work.

Honeywell Chronotherm iv Plus power cuts on and off

There's a trouble shooting guide here, you need to check for the presence of 24V when it goes blank, and trace back to where it's disappearing (I assume it is losing the 24v, if not you'll need to go through the installer setup or read on...
My first thought would be to check the wiring which has been touched last if it started doing that after you had coil replaced.
As an aside I'm not sure which model you have but if it has batteries you should replace them (I don't think it does have batteries but not seen a model iv so I'm unsure)

Is the blower coming on inside? If it isn't, try tripping both breakers again. If the blower is working, your thermostat may be timed out or the air cond may have a timer in it that will keep it from coming on for a few minutes.

If none of the above work, make sure you didn't pull any wires off when you pulled the filters out.

I cannot get my heater to shut off when it get to hot in the house , i have it on 60 and auto and still running. I have to turn it off.

sounds like maybe you have a wire touching somewhere in the thermostat or the thermostat itself is failing, are you turning the power off to unit or turning the thermostat to off .... if you are turning power off then try this frirst turn you thermostat down as low as it will go a wait 1 minute 30seconds to see if it goes off if not then (at thermostat) remove the wire hooked to "w" terminal which if done correctly should be a white wire ... wait a few minutes and see if the unit shuts down ..if it does not see if you are still blowing hot air as the fan may just be running...if the heat portion stops ,but you still have fan then remove the "g" wire also and wait about 90-120 seconds and see if the fan goes off... if all goes off then either you thermost is still calling heat for some reason or you have one of those wires touching the "r' wire somewhere making the call for heat....
***** if you are turning the thermostat to off and the unit is going off then you most likely just have a bad thermostat and for some reason one of the relays are stuck on thermostat

Readings disappear on thermostat for awhile then come back

Hi Linda,

There are a few things that cause this:

  1. When the heat is starting, it will sometimes go blank for a few minutes and then resume.
  2. Most have batteries, replace them with fresh new ones, if the electricity goes out while you are away, the batteries will keep the settings.
  3. Have someone check the house when it is extremely cold or hire a service to monitor. Your alarm company can usually add temperature sensors to your home, it will add a little safety net for you.
Hope this was helpful, please rate my answer.
