Question about White Rodgers White-Rodgers 1F85RF-275 Thermostat and Wireless Remote Sensor Kit

1 Answer

I have a 1F81-51 White-Rodgers thermostat that keeps resetting itself back to the factory default settings. I've chnaged the batteries, but it continues to automatically reset itself after I have programmed the cooling settings. What can be done to eliminate this behavior (besides setting the HOLD button)?

I had the exact same problem. Even pressing the Hold button does not really help, because once it resets - the Hold temperature also changes to the default.

I fixed this by replacing the 470 micro-Farad / 10v capacitor in the unit (it's the grey-colored capacitor). To access the back of the circuit board, you will need to break 2 plastic rivets holding the front of the unit to the base.

After replacing the capacitor I've not had any resets for the past 3 days (it used to reset itself every couple of hours).

Hope this helps.

I'm not quite sure I understand what you have done but, make sure your compresor(outside is running and, that you don't have the thermostat set to "fan". You want the display to show "cool" and then adjust your temp. It sounds like you have the system set to fan and not cool. Provide me with a model number and I will see about getting you a manual.

If the thermostat clicks, contact the furnace manufacturer or a service person to verify the heating system is operating correctly.

Dear Steven,

First of all the thermostat that you have is hardwire powered. You need to check for the power coming in the thermostat which is the c- terminal. If that is confirmed reset the thermostat, reset button
located on the back of the thermostat body.
If you need further support call the techline 18002842925.
