Question about Honeywell Power Humidifier: Furnace Humidifier/ Humidifier
Yes, I have a problem on my Honeywell Chronotherm III t-stat - showing "-AC" on top right hand corner, where used to be current temp. The t-stat is used to control both AC and heater, and the problem happens on both "heat" and "cool" setting. I have tried to switch the front part from another working t-stat with same model, it has the same problem. But If it's not a problem on t-stat, how can both AC and heater have problem at same time? Can anyone help? Thanks.
What you can do is try and clean the contacts. Open the door on the thermistat and remove the two screws, after that you can seperate the part that is mounted to the wall and the front panel. Look at the part that is mounted on the wall and you'll see the contacts that should be a copper color. They might be black from age. Clean them and you'll be surprised how well it will work after that.

Posting my experience in case anyone else is troubleshooting their own problem.
I have a Chronotherm iii thermostat that recently had the 'hold -ac' problem.
The a/c would work fine for hours, but then cut off at the hottest time of the day.
The thermostat's display would be very faint, almost unreadably so.
This happened once before and that time I had to call a tech to come look at the problem.
That time the issue was that the float switch was being engaged due to the drain hole getting blocked after some roof work was done and debris blocked the hole.
I checked those parts in the attic this time and saw no problems.
After some Googling, I found the youtube video noted below.
I attached my shopvac to the outside drain pipe and vacuumed out the pipe.
It ended up clearing a couple of clogs and a few cups worth of water.
The problem was fixed immediately and has not happened again.
Two pages that helped me...

"Possibly" the controller to the T-Stat is shut off. We just had that problem but we had rented the basement and we think the tenant shut off the unit over night.
