Question about Hunter Fan Company 5/1/1 Programmable Thermostat

1 Answer

My furnace will run properly for 2-3 hours then at some point the heat will fail to kick on when it goes below the set temperature. The thermostat will indicate that it is calling for heat, but the furnace will not come on. If I turn the heat off and on again, the heat will come back on and repeat the same issue.

Does the furnace stays off?.
Furnace are ment to cycle on and off because of limits .If you set to 70 furnace would cycle several times before reaching that temperature.
Just make sure your filters are clean and you got proper return air flow because lack of air flow will cause furnace to shut off sooner than normal

Gas Furnace trouble


the thermostat sends a signal to the circuit board. Not knowing anymore than I do about your heater or furnace I would suggest that that is a good place to start. Any limit or safety switch wouldnt coincidentally shut off the heater when it reached the set temp.

Instead of the heating element turning on the heat pump runs out side thermostate is not set on eheat


The heatpump is your 1st. stage heat, when you have a call for heat it will bring on the outdoor unit.
When the first stage heat can't heat the house and the indoor temperature drops 2° or 3° then 2nd. stage heat will kick in and maintain the house temperature at about 2° or 3° below the temperature setting.
If you outdoor unit fails or goes into defrost then emergency heat will kick in and keep the house at 2nd stage temperature approximately 2° or 3° below thermostat setting.
If you have an outdoor thermostat or balance point setting on outdoor board, it will shut the outdoor unit off at a certain set outdoor temperature and the 2nd stage heat will be primary heat for the house.

Furnace runs but does not heat up the house to thermostat tempera


Did this problem just start? Or has it been a long term issue? Check for broken ductwork, return air pulling outside air in. Check supply air temps, should be 100-140° or more. And what is the outdoor temp? If it's 0° outside, 74° is doing good. Is the home insulated properly? And there is a small hole behind the t-stat where the control wire comes through the wall. Plug that hole, seal that hole to prevent cold air from fooling the t-stat. The furnace has 3 fan speeds and it may be in low speed. If so it should be in medium speed. I'd suggest a service tech doing this for you unless you are experienced in furnace repair.

My air handler comes on ,not the outside unit when my thermostat is in the off position even if i turn the thermostat down to 50 and have it turned off the air handler comes on for about 5 to 10 minutes...


If you have a standard thermostat the fan switch is for the air handler only. It completely over rides the thermostat for most settings. Now lets see this is what I'd expect:
fan switch on Indoor fan runs all time
Fan switch auto Indoor fan only runs when thermostat is set to cool or heat and the thermostat is turned up above room temp for heat or below room temp for cooling. In both of these modes the furnace blower comes on and stays on til the room temperature is satisfied. The outdoor unit only comes on for AC the out door unit will not come on for heat or the "on" setting on the thermostat. See exception 1 & 2 below...

Exception 1- (in a heat pump the out door unit runs in both heat and cool mode unless it has emergency heat turned on then it will not come on outside in the heat mode, and depending on the type of heat pump and furnace or air handler it is). A heat pump thermostat usually has "backup heat" and an "emergency heat" setting switch on the thermostat.
Exception 2 - On some thermostats they are made to cycle on the heat if the temperature reaches a preset temp (around 50'f usually but definitely by 40'f). This mode prevents freezing when if instance the homeowner is away or while the home is under construction. In this mode the fan inside can run but the heat usually comes on with it.
Exception3 - On some electric furnaces the heating strips may be individually controlled and thus not all come on at one time. This may give the feel of no heat especially if the room is cold.

Now there may be other exceptions but Ive tried to give you a heads up on some of the most common ones.
If you need more help please post more specifics about your unit/system as to for sure what switches are set to what setting and what is happening with each. My first though was that maybe your system is OK and you needed to know if the thermostat was working properly.

If this helpd you understand your problem would you please give me as hifgh a mark as you can. Thnaks for using fixya and good luck.

Forced Hot Air Heating system doesn't maintain thermostat setting


It sounds like you may have issues with the furnace. A qualified professional can go over the system and the house to let you know if the system and unit are properly sized. The poor performance of a furnace can be a sign of carbon buildup in the furnace.
Good luck, hope this helps.

Gas furnace wont stay lite


I'm a little confused by your terminology. You are saying you have a pilot lite and electric heat strips? Are you possibly meaning burners? Is the heater running for 2 hours straight without shutting off? how cold is it there? Lastly what temperature do you have the thermostat set at and how close does it get to the temp. before it shuts off?
