My furnace wont turn on.changed batteries but still doesnt turn on! there doesnt seem to be "option" for "HEAT" on screen


If you have recently changed your thermostat to this one, It may not be compatible with your system. If you have a heat pump system, your thermostat will not work with a heat pump. You will have to install a thermostat that is compatible with a heat pump.
-Said that, assuming this has worked in the past during the heating season, some times the switch slides on these thermostats are fairly tempermental in that the switch slide contacts inside the control board sometimes do not make contact and if jostle around a bit, will maybe make contact. You can also remove the front plate from the base plate and check the wire are properly attached and not loose. While you have it off, check the hg he switch to make sure it is selected properly. If you have a gas or oil furnace it should be in hg. If you have electric heat it should be in he.
Depending on the age of the thermostat, you may need to get a new one because of the slides do wear out and tend to give unreliable performance. If you replace the thermostat, may I recommend you get a Honeywell built thermostat. Many of the cheap thermostats are cheap and poorly constructed and become unreliable. On cold days or hot days air conditioning is essential for comfort, and the money spent for a good thermostat is money well spent.
Hope this helps.

Why is my Duo Therm Heat Pump Running in Aux Heat Mode?


If the compressor is running in heat mode but not producing any heat then the change over valve may be stuck. That is a job for a pro. If the thermostat isn't applying power to the changeover valve then a thermostat change is easy to do.

I am going to assume that there is a pump to move the boiler water to the heat registers. If this is the case then look for an on/off switch for the pump motor or maybe the pump has seized up and needs to be replaced.

How do I set my thermostat so that it doesn't keep going off and leaving me with no hot water .I have a Honeywell digital thermostat.


The problem is not your thermostat. It is the person who told you that your AC would be your sole source of hot water. The purpose of heat recovery is to ASSIST with hot water production and reduce the current used by your water heater. The only time your AC heats your water is when it is working to cool (or if it's a heat pump, cool and heat) your home. Turn your water heater back on and let your AC help keep the water hot. It's not supposed to do it alone.

Does the boiler thermostat control the heat of the radiators as well as the hot water temperature? Does the thermostat control the water temperature and the pump - as our pump seems to be on all the...


There should be a control called an aquastat that regulates the temperature of the boiler. The thermostat will turn on the circulator to start the flow of water through the radiators. If the water coming back from the radiators is very cold, a control will shut off the circulator until the boiler can come up to a predetermined temperature then start the flow of water again. If you have a tankless coil for domestic hot water, you now have a triple aquastat that maintains the temperature for domestic as well as the boiler temp. So yes the boiler thermostat (aquastat) does control the heat of the radiators and domestic hot water. No the pump is regulated by your house thermostat. You should take an amp draw on the boiler and componants to find out what is drawing more electricity than it should and popping your fuse.

I have a new Rheem heat pump. The cooling works fine but won't blow hot air in HEAT setting. I have reset the breakers for heat pump and air handler, changed filters and pulled batteries and reset the...


if this is indeed a heat pump you rthermostat should also have a emergency heat setting does it work on that setting... a heat pump on heat wuns the outside unit and has a recersing valve that changes the refigerant flow ..is the outside runnignduring heat mode... if you turn the thermostat in emergency heat the outside should shut down and indoor heat should come on...of this is not happening you have a wiring issue if both are not working... braeburn thermostats usually have behind the cover dip switches... i am not exactly sure what model this is but if indeed a heat pump the thermostat should have a r,w2,y,e,g,c,o,and b terminal... rheem wiring should be as follows
red to r white to w2 , g=green , yellow to y terminal there should be a wire hooked to the b terminal usually brown sometimes orange on the b terminal that is your reversing valve terminal.
you are going to have to make sure the thermostat is configured to energize the b termianl and will have to go into the installer setup to do this...hopefully you still have the paper work on thermostat... most heat pumps use the o terminal for reversing valve but rheem uses the b terminal
hope this helps out some repost with anymore probs...also make sure the switches are set to electric or gas whatever you have heat pump or not etc. inside thermostat

When to change from heat pump to alternate heat


We says the outside can pull heat out of 40* air, below this change to emergency heat or it should do this with the thermostat on its own.

The smell is usually dust on the wires for electric resistance heat.The thermostat shouldnt have anything to do with it.

Amana HTM (heat transfer module) system


I would check the house thermostat(and its wiring to the indoor unit), and if it's OK then check the heat transfer fluid diverter valve inside the indoor unit (should be sending the hot fluid through the big radiator (air exchanger)) until the surface temperature of the radiator is approximately 130 degrees F, then the fan control operates and the fan starts to blow hot air through your ductwork. My HTM is 26 years old and I've had many opportunities to "hone" its operation...
