Did you program your own temps, if not i believe this is part of default program!

My dyson won't turn on. In the section for the speed of fan is showing the number 33.


Hi Deborah, it's Jack at Dyson.

It's likely the '33' you see displayed on your machine is the target temperature you've selected, as the fan speed goes from 1-10.

If you've selected 33 degrees as the target, your heater will only activate if the ambient room temperature drops below 33 degrees. It would then continue to run until the temperature reaches 33 degrees once again. The intelligent thermostat is engineered to heat the room to the desired temperature, then to run as needed to maintain this temperature.

If you want the heater function to run, try increasing the target temperature degree by degree until the machine comes on. But if you want to use the fan-only function in warmer weather, turn the target temperature down to 0. The LED indicator around the on/off switch will turn blue, and the machine will run in fan-only mode to cool you down with unheated airflow.


I hope this information helps. If you'd like further help or advice from our experts, you're welcome to call the Dyson Customer Helpline directly on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Hunter thermostat


Make sure that your room temperature is lower than your desired final heating temperature (or higher than your cooling temperature). Next check your wires to the thermostat. Some thermostats have screw terminals; others you push the wire into place after holding open a "lever".
A few months ago, we found that a few of the conductor wires had broken behind the thermostat. On stripping the insulation from the unbroken section of those wires and reconnecting them to the thermostat, it worked fine. There are 4-5 wires behind the thermostat, the wires that control the relays to turn on and off the heating and cooling are different from the power wires.

Next check your system. Change the filter and make sure that the door over the filter is closed. If it isn't seated, you may get a fail-safe over-riding the controls. Some newer systems will have LEDs that give trouble codes. Refer to your manual if you see any lights/code numbers. You also should check the wiring at the furnace/heat pump/AC unit. Another possibility is that the control board for the unit is damaged. (This also happened to us - a close lightning strike caused a surge that destroyed a portion of the circuit board. Your unit should have a trouble-shooting section that tells how to test the system by bypassing certain jumpers.) If the problem is at the board, call a repair person. They'll probably have the correct part on hand if you give them the make/model when you schedule the service call.
Please add a comment with information about your heating and cooling system hardware and any trouble-shooting lights, if present, for additional assistance.

The difference between thermal fuse and thermostat


Thermal fuse is a heat-sensitive safety feature that shuts down system when overheating is detected.
In electrical wiring, the thermal fuse reacts to high temperature caused by too many amps on the electric circuit. When temperature exceeds the fuse amp rating, then the fuse trips and cuts power to electric circuit.
Example of thermal fuse is a household circuit breaker.
Gas water heaters have a different type of thermal fuse located in the combustion chamber or on the combustion chamber door, and also inside a copper probe inside water tank. Water heater thermal fuses will trip when water temperature exceeds fuse rating, or when heat inside the combustion chamber exceeds temperature rating of fuse. This action will cut off gas supply to water heater.
So a thermal fuse is a safety feature.

Thermostat is not a safety feature.
Thermostat is a measuring tool.
Thermostats measure temperature.
Example of thermostat is outdoor thermometer, or cooking thermometer, or Heat-AC control located on wall inside house.
Thermostats can give a simple temperature reading, or they can cause a separate control to turn on-off depending on application.
For example thermostat on Heat-AC will read room temperature, and when temperature exceeds setting, this triggers a switch that turns Heat-AC on-off.

Many appliances have both thermal safety fuse and thermostat.
Take for example a gas water heater. A copper tube extends into the water tank. Inside the copper tube are 2 things: A thermostat probe to measure water temperature, and a thermal fuse called an ECO for energy cut off. The ECO is a thermal fuse, and is a safety feature.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Gas-valve-ECO2-358.jpg
The thermostat reads temperature of water, and turns water heater on-off to keep water hot. A person can adjust water temperature by adjusting the thermostat dial on front of water heater.
However if the thermostat fails, or some other problem occurs, and water inside the tank gets hotter than 180 degrees, then the ECO or thermal fuse will trip. When the thermal fuse trips, this turns off gas to the water heater so water cannot get any hotter. The safety device prevents water heater explosion. The water heater must be repaired since this particular thermal fuse cannot be re-used afterwards, and must be replaced.

Possible that the sensor is not reacting and so does not set to the data required in the program. Try and see what is the error factor for the switch on and off which will give an indication of the sensor error. If so this must be replaced. otherwise you can use the error to set it likewise., higher or lower.

My newly installed Broan-NuTone attic fan worked fine for two days. Now it wont turn off, even though the temperature has dropped well (40 degrees)below the setting(100 degrees).


Hi. The most likly cause of this type problem is the thermostat. Check the thermostat housing is it hot to the touch, is it close to a heat soarse, suchas, a motor or flu pipe for a water heater. If the thermostat has a adjustable heat range setting try setting it to the lowest setting if this shuts the unit off the calibration of the unit may not be set right. If the unit is new this should be covered under warranty.

Thermostat takes too long to cool down 1 degree


Thermostats don't cool or heat. They are just the control device that tells the furnance or AC to operate and register the present temperature and tell the furnance or A/C to shut off, once the desired temperature has been reached.

Most programmable thermostats will take at least 1-2 weeks to "learn" how long to run the furnance or A/C in order to reach the desired temperatures you've programmed into it, for the time you want it be that temperature. Variables such as extremely hot days and higher humidity will also affect your cooling system.

Give it a little time to self-learn and it should adjust itself after a week or two of operation. You might want to take some time to review and familiarize yourself with the owners manual to see what Hunter advises for setting up and using the thermostat.

You may need to have your A/C checked to see if you're running low on freon, or need to have the coils cleaned, need to change the air filter, etc.

Hope this helps and best regards!

How to use a SUNBEAM twin window fan with


Intake brings the air outside into your room, exhaust pushes the air inside your room out.

What setting you use depends on your personal taste of temperatures and the temperature inside vs outside. If you set the thermostat to 72 degrees and it is more than that outside then I would use the exhaust setting. If you set it to 72 degrees, and it is 68 outside but 84 inside then I would set it onto intake to cool the inside air.
