Honeywell RTH230B--Air Conditioner won't turn off!

Hello,

I just installed a new Honeywell RTH230B last night. I programmed it according to the directions and had it set at 71 F for the evening. I woke up in a 59 F apartment. My air conditioner will not turn off when it reaches the correct temperature! What happened? I wasn't exactly sure which cycle rate to put, but I don't think that would cause this problem.

Thank you in advance for any help!

Normally, you should have 5 color wires: W-White, Y-Yellow, G-Green, R-Red and C-Blue.

The Blue wire is a common from the transformer on older systems, which is probably hooked to RC terminal.

Try this: Remove the blue wire and jump the RC to RH with the red wire and you will be fine. Blue wire should not be needed with the new thermostat.

This should also be stated in the instruction manual.
Hope this helps.

After several months of calling Honeywell (actually someone in India), I found what seems to be the solution. I think I became such a pest (they had a lot of complains from me in their record) that they put me on hold and called someone at Honeywell Corp. The solution was to "reset the microchip". You do this by holding down the "Mode" button and while holding it down, take the batteries out for a couple of seconds (still holding down the Mode button) and then put the batteries back in and release the Mode button. 10 days have passed and it has been working perfectly. Hope this doesn'f jinx it! Good luck.

My thermostat is set on 68 degrees and it shows room temperature is 68, but the furnace still kickson, Honeywell said it has a 1 degree difference. so what's the problem then?


Yes there is a one degree tolerance, in fact my heater just kicked on and it is set to 67 and the inside temperature reads 67. It is also a Honeywell.

Household steamer not heating at all


Well, first thing, just hook up service water and turn it on so the water heats up. Leave it long enough for water to get hot. If water doesn't get hot like should, then heating unit is malfunctioning. If it is getting hot after a while, you pull the handle trigger and water comes out, you have to wait long enough for the hot water to get to the head/trigger for it to go into the nozzles. If it was working ok before, and you were waiting for the water to heat, then then it should be working fine. Tell me what is happening if you wait for water to heat and get to the nozzles. I'm right here at my computer and we can get this thing going if the heater unit is good. Regards, Rigger.

Flashing re co


Re Co stands for Recovery Mode. That means if you have programed your thermostat to be at say 72° at 5:00 then it should kick on in Recovery Mode several minutes before 5 in order to reach that temperature. This is normal and doesn't indicate that something is wrong, just that your thermostat is trying to reach or recover the programed temperature.
