Question about Honeywell Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Honeywell t8601d showing a square symbol error - in past this has indicated low refrigerant. Tech came out, said need to replace thermostat, as compressor would not start, but if manually connected wires, compressor would start. So, had thermostat replaced. Tech then said need refrigerant. Did the t8601d actually need to be replaced?

There is a sensor that shuts the compressor down when the freon (refrigerant) is low. The tech probably "shorted" out this sensor. If the unit went on when he did this, the charge is low.

Fortunately the price of thermostats has dropped over the past couple of years, so you probably know where I am taking you. It is time to replace that faulty thermostat with a new one. Simply remove the old one pay attention to where the wires come from and put them on the same lettered terminals to the old one. It is best to kill power to the furnace before replacing begins.

You may have a broken thermostat wire. Disconnect the wires from the thermostat and please note what colors are hooked to which terminals. Cross the R and W wires and see if your heating system turns on. If it does not, you have a broken wire or bad connection at the heating system. If it does start, you have a bad thermostat or bad connection at the thermostat.

Flashing battery symbol


I had this same problem today.  I called Honeywell and they said the flashing broken battery symbol may mean low batteries, or it may mean the battery type is incorrect.  They recommend only non-rechargeable alkaline batteries.  I was using rechargeable NiMH batteries.  Even though they were fully charged, I had the flashing battery symbol and the thermostat relay would not work.  I replaced with alkaline, the flashing battery indicator went out, the thermostat works again.
Odd that it worked for 3 months on the rechargeables after first install. I did notice the broken battery symbol came on after the first few days, but I checked the battery charges and they were good, so I disregarded the symbol until the thermostat stopped working today.  Apparently there is something about the NiMH performance characteristic that the thermostat doesn't like.
