Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Have a Coleman Evon Furnace, manufactured for Zone 1, in my 1998 Module Home. Have had 4 thermostats put on . Everyone has the same problem. Works fine for first week and then will not read correct temp. Can set for specific temp and will go way past before cutting off, and sometimes I can cut the temp up to the reading and it will quit. Wait a few minutes and it will read the correct temp. The thermostat seems to be working, but will location of thermostat be the problem. Its the only thing I can think of at this point, and is there a way to move a thermostat. This one is located sort in a nook between the open kitchen area, and the open living room.I'm tired of having thermostats replaced.......thanks!

Hang a small thermometer next to the thermostat to see how much it is off by. You did not mention what kind of thermostat you have been installing. Check in the instruction manual to see if it has a heat anticipator. Some thermostats have a small winding (heater) inside it that will anticipate the temperature raise and turn off the heater a few degrees before set poit. If this was not set, this would be your problem. If it is factory set, sometimes they come with a small resistor that must be installed in the wiring to help with the anticipator. If you find that the thermostat is still way off, yes you may need to relocate it. Kitchens can fool thermostats by the heat from the stove and refrigerator. You can either relocate the thermostat by changing the location of the wires and base or install a wireless unit that is easily mounted where you want without running wires.

I need to know if a mercury thermostat is bad will it allow the ac to come on but not the heater


need to know what thermostat you are referring to
the coolant thermostat has no connection to the ac system
if it is the ac thermostat the it maintains the cabin temperature by activating the ac compressor as required
if you are referring to climate control then that controls the heater flow to keep the ac temperature at a set temperature with the ac compressor operating all the time
so as an answer to you question , check the climate control module

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.

My termost set to a/c, the fan auto, blow very well, but when I switch to heat and the fan auto, doesn't work, but if I put fan on work why?


the thermostat says to call for heat buildup in the work if its not cold enough the thermostat won't call for heat and I won't go on but when it gets cold and the thermostat set to the temperature you want or hire someone that doesn't cycle

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.
