Question about Heating & Cooling
My heater will not get over 70* just shuts off but the pilot stays lit if i hold the over ride button down it will heat longer but only when held down threo coulp? factory setting? i dont get it.
The over ride button is on the thermostat? It sounds like the thermostat is programed to cut out at this temp. If you want to try, remove the thermostat and connect the white and red wires together, don't worry, they are only 24 volts, you wont feel it. Like this the heater will run continuously. I don't know what type of heater you have so after a few minutes (4 or 5) the fan doesn't come on you need to attach the green wire to the white and red, but I don't think you will need to. If this does as I said, then the thermostat needs to be re-programed, or replaced with a simpler model that is not "energy efficient."
