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.
