Question about Honeywell Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

MY APARTMENT HAS ELECTRIC WATER BASEBOARD HEATING SYSTEM, I found out the heat cannot be turned off even I disconnect the honeywell thermostats (only one on the wall for the whole unit - living room and 2 bedrooms), and I even turned off the electric supply in the fuse box, but heat keep coming out, I have to leave window opens to ventilate hot air. No hot water tank in the unit, it is coming from the building's central boiler. What should I do to gets the heating baseboard turn off?

Okay couple questions here because either you have hot water baseboards or you have electric baseboard heaters.
- if the system is a hydronic baseboard heater fed form main boiler, usually this means your space heat is controlled by a zone valve which the zone valve is controlled by your thermostat.
-if you find the zone is controlled by a zone valve than it is possible the zone valve is defective causing hot water to bleed past the zone valve even though your t-stat is telling it to close.
- first find out what excatly the baseboard is heated by either water or electricity
-next personal message me and I can walk you through it

SOURCE: Honeywell HZ517 Baseboard Heater

This troubleshooting approach may be sound, but you need a deep security star screwdriver to open the heater up. I have looked in specialty tool and electronics shops and no one has a screwdriver that gets in deep enough. You won't go anywhere without this screwdriver, so if anyone can suggest a source, that would be great.

Make sure BOTH fuses on each heater circuit test ok -- they are no doubt 220V -- hence 2 fuses

SOURCE: 2000 watt baseboard heater is making loud clicking noise

Most base board heaters installation instructions say to attach to the wall with screws which are slack ( not fully tightened) in order to allow the heater case to expand and contract otherwise you get a clicking noise

SOURCE: Fahrenheat electric baseboard heaters are not safe for children

A few companies sell child-proof covers that prevent little fingers and small objects from getting into the radiators. Try searching Child-safe baseboard heater covers in a google search or PexSupply.com.... we use them in daycare centers.

SOURCE: Electric baseboard heat not getting hot

Is your fuse box and main power source large enough to handle the full load if all are turned on at the same time? Are you uses two pole breakers? you might only be feeding with 110 volt. This would prevent them from getting very hot.

Replacing a Honeywell T822l1000 thermostat.


The W terminal is used for heating and goes to a small electric valve in the water line to your baseboard. The Y terminal is for a cooling system. The T822 is wired wrong and is not working. The wiring between R and W is corect for a heating only application. The R terminal is the power source.

Hot water not going, wanting to know how to turn it back on?


You have a real good description of your thermostat--
I wonder why you suspect the thermostat to be causing your 'No Hot Water' problem?

First of all, I have to be sure I understand your real problem--
When you say you want to 'turn the Hot Water back on', (It is 'Not going')
Do you mean you want a boiler (maybe in the basement?) -- or maybe a zone valve in a Hot Water, Baseboard heating system-- to be heating your house/ room/ apartment?

I would suppose, if you have the thermostat set higher than the room temperature, that it should be giving a 'call' to the boiler (or Baseboard Hot Water Heater..) to ignite a fire, and heat the waer, and then heat your room, or house.

So-- Could the problem be in the Device heating the Hot Water?

Please tell us more about your heating system-- what type of fuel, -- What happens when you lower the Thermostat, and then raise it-- What used to happen, and what does NOT now happen, etc.

Tell us more clues-- maybe we can help remotely like this-

Above some of the baseboard electric heating vents (the whole house is wired with electric (not gas, oil, or coal) heat there are black marks on the walls. what is causing this??? I do not burn candles,...


While it could be nothing, it is a good idea to have a heating professional check them once in a while. Sounds a little odd, though, as most electric baseboard heaters have no vents. You will be comforted by the reassurance of having them looked at. Farmerbear at FixYa.com

Replacing WHITE-RODGERS manual thermostat with 3 wires ( red, white, blue and installing Honeywell electronic thermostat RTH110B, how do I connect it? The heating is not central, baseboard heating.


I have only seen one Honeywell thermostat that would work with a 3-wire heating system.

I would replace it with a White-Rodgers 1F80-0471. They are about $100, but they are a good thermostat, and they work well with the 3-wire zone valves.

Most other thermostats have the "Y" terminal that you need, but do not control the zone valve correctly.

Want to replace analog Honeywell thermostat with digital


Your system uses 24 volts and that thermostat should work. You should only have a two wire system and that should work using the RH and W connection on the thermostat. My personal opinion about that thermostat...I don't like it. It will timeout for 15 minutes after furnace does not fire up. I deal with this thermostat all the time because that is what they install in the new homes. I always have to pull it off the wall, remove the batteries and wait for it to completely drain power becuase it does not have a reset switch. Very irritating...Might be too complicated for your application.

Replace three wire thermostat with four wire thermostat


From the two red and two black wires (and the specs in the pdf), your new thermostat sounds like it's designed to directly control the line voltage (120 or 240) to the heater. That's the usual way baseboard heaters are controlled.

Could your wires be red, black, and (old, yellowed) white, the standard colors in a 3-wire power cable? Just the red and black should be enough to control a 120-volt heater so I don't understand what the white would have been used for. If it were my heater I'd take off the cover(s) -- with the power off, of course -- and find out what those wires actually connect to.
