Question about Heating & Cooling

2 Answers

The builder of my house preset my honeywell thermostat such that it could not be adjusted below 72 for cooling. This was to prevent subcontractors from setting it lower while doing interior work on the house. I never learned how to de-program it so that I can set it lower than 72 degrees. What do I do?

    I'm uncertain of the exact model number.  The owner's manual is for an "Eletronic Heat-Pump Thermostat" for T8501, T8511, T8524.  I don't have a heat pump, though.  The thermostat has both up and down arrow keys and an "i" key.  When you flip the panel open it has a "system" button and a "fan" button.  The "i" key is what you press to learn the temperature setting.  If I hold both arrow keys down at the same time, it gives me a screen, but I don't know how to make any adjustments from that point forward.

Try reseting the circuit breaker first and see if that fixes it

I can get you a manual but I need the model number of the unit

Please let me know if the simple reset of the circuit breaker fixes it.

    That sounds a lot my my thermostat. Does it have a "Run" button?

    For me, the arrow buttons will adjust the set temperature, but not permanently if a prior program is engaged. Pressing the "Run" button will cancel the program and allow the buttons to set the temperature for real.

I have a honeywell focus pro 6000 temp in house doesnt change unit runs constatly. thermostat says 78 thermomiter on other end of house says 72. changed batteries


It's possible you have a lot of dust build up inside the stat. If it has batteries remove face from wall and blow out. Take outside to see if temp will change. Plug the hole in the wall where the wire comes through. If all fails, replace. Turn power off, take wiring picture, replace, turn power on. Good Luck!!

Thermostat does not reach programmed temperature


Have you checked with a thermometer to see if the area is reaching the temp you have it set at? A thermostat has nothing to do with the temp in your house. If you have it set at a temp for Example ( 72 ) and it is not reaching that temp to shut off then you have a problem with your unit or insulation in house. If you set stat on cool at 72 and the house gets down lower than 72 then there is a problem with stat.

Location of thermostat in an oldsmobile silhouette


This is dependent on the year. Follow the top radiator hose from the radiator to the motor. The thermostat is generally in the housing that hose connects to. Replace with a thermostat that faults open to prevent future breakdown

Why can't I lower my honeywell 8500 below 67 on cool?


With a two story house you have to be aware that cold air flows downwards so any cold air coming from an ac unit will flow downstairs( normally down the stairway) so unless you can close off the down stairs then the up stairs unit will be cooling downstairs as well. Ac units have a thermostat located in the air intake and it cools until the cold air has risen to that point. In effect the space above the ac unit will be hotter than the floor. Knowing how they work ,you can see that the upstairs unit will never reach the set temperature because the cold air is continually heating from the house and will never get to the top thermostat.
So your solutions are
1-- fit controls that restrict the cold air from leaving the upper floor (Doors)
2--don't run the upper ac unit unless you are living up there (waste of money
)3 place an ac in each upper room and keep the room door closed

Honeywell RTH230B a/c problem


if you set the thermostat on 70 and your house won't get ant cooler than 72, there is a problem with your system,not your stat. I'm thinking you are low on refrigerant if it is somewhat working. when the unit is running, if you can get your hand on the larger refrigerant line under the black insulation, it should be cold, about 55 degrees.

You need to adjust the heat anticiptor on the thermostat. Not knowing your furnace control amp draw ..... I would set the anticiptor somewhere between .3 & .7. The slight adjustment should make the cycling run better. If not adjust it the other way. If this does not solve the problem the heat anticipator might be bad (change the thermostat). If you have a digital stat read the manual most are preset at the factory. Sometimes you can reset it by following the directions.

Thermostat temperatures not reaching preset Energy Star settings


Well with a boiler system like you have it will cost you more money to heat your house that way than if you leave it like it is. With a boiler system it takes a lot longer to heat an area than with a furnace. The best thing you can do is find a happy medium and leave it there at all times. If you read the paper work on your new thermostats they have a set procedure which tells the thermostat if you have forced air or boiler system. Do you have baseboard or in-floor heat how many zones do you have.

Honeywell Digital Thermostat won't click on if temp is below 59


do you live there? if so here are the rules for setting back temperature: do not lower the temperature more than 8 degrees F from the temperature you want it when your there, setting it back for periods of less than eight hours is also somewhat futile. Due to laws of thermo-dynamics the heat required to recover from more extreme setbacks or shorter periods of time exceeds the savings acquired by taking said action. As to your question directly there are no reasons why your thermostat should not function at any setpoint temperature that it is allowed to set to (45 normally being the lowest) if it does not function below 58 degrees it has a failure and should be replaced before it fails completely. Suggest a Robertshaw or Braeburn brand thermostat, Honeywell quality has slipped over the past decade to unacceptable levels. Unless your considering a Hunter in which case buy another Honeywell.
