HEY< When I worked for a large co. with offices of women of different sizes (yes, that has a lot to do with people changing the thermostat for the correct body temperatures) ,we left the old thermostat in place and called this a '"DUMMY THERMOSTAT" and unhooked the wires and added a new thermostat at the inlet air at the unit out of sight! We asked them how they feel, and as long as they thought they controlled the temperature, they were HAPPY! thank-you-very-much!

How do I bring up heat to 70 degrees on my Proselect PsTs21P52 thermostat which has been programmed?


Looks like you have a hold function. This will bypass the programming and "hold" your desired temp. If the temp rises but reaches a maximum of a certain degree than someone has set the maximum heat temp to that degree. Meaning you will have to enter the settings menu and scroll through to make the changes. You need the manual. Good Luck.

Powers on, then immediately shuts off. More detailed in comments below This is too aggravating!!!!!!! Characters characters


Hello Kathy: All clothes dryers work on the same basic principle...
1.) Air Flow
2.) Heat
3.) Rotation

Your problem may lie in your duct work configuration and how the exhaust gases are vented; the mere fact that you had blockage could have overheated the dryer's high limit thermostat and/or the thermal fuse...BUT, before I go any further...I need to talk to you about safety!

Gas dryers give off combustion gases that are toxic and DEADLY; DO NOT VENT YOUR DRYER UNDER YOUR HOUSE SLAB to the outside! Especially that you report that it gets WET inside that underground slab- it's against NFPA fire codes (municipal and state building codes, as well) to do that. If that slab ever collapses partially or fully, you'll have no way of knowing it and the toxic gases will back-up into your house.

The safer venting method should be done with 4 inch solid wall vent pipe; and should be vented directly outside. Maximum duct work (straight run of ducting without the use of any elbows) for your model gas dryer, is 65 feet.

If you are using 1- 90 degree, the total length reduces to 55 feet, including the elbow in that measurement

The use of 2- 90 degree elbows, 47 feet; for 3- 90 degree elbows, 36 feet, and for 4- 90 degree elbows, 28 feet- maximum length.

These are per your manufacturer's installation specifications.

Although you should not use more than 4- 90 degree elbows in your configuration, in the event you do, you would deduct 6 feet for each additional elbow used. You want to make sure that you can visibly see the vent pipe (to visually inspect it for defects or for ease of access to clean and service)- and never keep flammables of sorts near the vent pipe due to the heat that they radiate.

I choose solid vent pipe over foil or plastic (in my home, rental properties, and when I do installs) because lint does have a tendency to burn inside the duct work...which could lead to perforation and/or fire. Plus many manufacturers recommend solid vent pipe over other types; and I do not recommend using screws to connect solid vent pipe together with, since lint can catch on the exposed screw that protrudes into the duct. Use a combination of, heat rated duct tape and dryer vent clamps.

Some installers or readers of this will think that this is excessive, costly, and not necessary; through my life's experiences, I have seen unfortunate yet avoidable tragedies. (Don't forget to check & clean your dryer ducts at least once-a-year!- I do mine at the start and end of DST- the same day we change the clocks and the batteries on our smoke and carbon monoxide detector alarms.)

Now, concerning the rest of the troubleshooting process, are you getting any trouble code errors on the electronic panel? If so, what are they?

You have several choices, you can disconnect and remove the high limit thermostat and thermal fuse and check them for continuity or call tech support using their smart diagnosis procedures as outlined on page 35 of you owner's manual. Or you can disconnect the dryer at it's power source (outlet or circuit breaker) and wait a half hour; see if the electronic computer panel resets. Then try running the dryer.

Please let me know how you made out or if you need more help.

How do i adjust AC temperature variance on a Honeywell TH5220D1003 thermostat


If you are talking about the difference between heating mode and cooling mode and the room setpoint, you can not change it. It comes from the factory with a 3 degree difference. In other words if you raise the heat setpoint until it is within 3 degrees of the cooling setpoint, for every degree you raise the heat setpoint the cooling will raise a degree.
About all you can do is increase the distance between the heat and cooling setpoint. To do this either lower the cooling setpoint to 3 degrees higher than the heat setpoint you want and then increase the cooling setpoint the desired setting. For example heat and cool setpoints are 67 and 70 respectively, and you want 65 and 73. Lower the cooling setpoint to 68 and then raise the cooling setpoint to 73. Now your heating will come on 3 degress lower than 68, the 65 you wanted and cooling will come on at 73. Remember, the thermostat new setpoints will turn on the cooling at 75 and turn back off at 73 and heat will turn on at 63 and turn off at 65.
You can perform the same using the heating setpoint, just have to look at it backwards. If you need to lower the difference I recommend a 8000 series thermostat. They are the most functional thermostat that Honeywell makes, be in mind they are about 3 times more expensive and many of the setting require a well trained tech to interpret and set properly.
Hope this helps.

I just installed a honeywell 5-2 progammable thermostate.. Everything is hooked up fine and I have my days, hours wake, sleep, leave...etc all set, but when it goes on.. for example, I have it set for...


You didn't include a model number, so it's hard to know for sure - but I'll take a stab at this one. Many of these t-stats have a programmable offset to reduce "hunting". This can be as little as 1 degree or more than 2 degrees.

This means if you set the offset to 1 degree and the room temperature to about 65 degrees, the furnace will heat the room until the t-stat registers a rising temperature of 66 degrees. The furnace shuts off and will not turn on again until the t-stat registers a falling temperature of 64 degrees. The average is 65 degrees, and prevents the furnace from starting and stopping numerous times instead of just once with the 1 degree offset.

You can further reduce the number of furnace start and stops by increasing the offset to 2 degrees. This would work like this when the t-stat is set to 65 degrees and the room is cool:

Room Temp Furnace
63 On
64 On
65 On
66 On
67 On
68 Off

The room is now warm and heat or furnace is off. The room begins to cool like below:

67 Off
66 Off
65 Off
64 Off
63 Off
62 On

With a 1 degree offset, the room temperature varies +/-1 degree (about 2 degrees total). With a 2 degree offset, the temperature about varies +/ -2 degrees (about 4 degrees total).

Also, when the thermostat shut the heat off, the heat that was made is delivered to the space instead of wasted by sending outdoors - so the room will get a little warmer even though no fuel is being burned. The same holds true at the other end. When the t-stat turn heat on, fuel is burned, but there's little heat until the source has reached the optimum temperature and then the heat is delivered to the space.

I hope this helps & good luck! Pleas rate my reply - thanks!

Hi i have a room thermostat with 4 programs per day on it. in the book it doesn't say if program 2 & 4 are the off times and if 1 & 3 are the on times. the thermostat was bought from wolseley....


On and off is determined by what temperature you set each program for. Example: 6 am - 70 degrees, 8 am - 65 degree, 4 pm - 72 degrees, 11 pm - 65 degrees. You can set the thermostat to fit your schedule and temperature preferences.  Good luck.

Thermal cut-off blows and high limit thermostat is working with vent clean.Replaced thermal cut-off, high limit thermostat and heating element. Still blows thermal cut-off.


Any time a thermal cut off blows, it's because the cycling thermostat is bad. When it's bad, the machine cycles off of the thermal cut off rather than the cycling thermostat allowing the dryer to over heat. The thermal cut off is a re-setting safety and is not made to cycle off of. The thermostat you are looking for looks like a high limit thermostat but it cuts power to the element at a lower temp. Around 158 degrees + or - 25 degrees. It's located close to the high limit. It's a normally closed switch that opens on the rise and it will show closed now but the problem with it is that will not open. Replace it and your problem will be solved. Good luck.

High limit kicks out fryer and pilot light can


Since you've mention the pilot light goes out at 400 degree F, then we are talking a gas Deep Fryer. The deepfryer usually use at 350 degree F for chips or else. Because the oil will start breaking down its quantity of frying very quickly over that temperature. Most people set at 350 degree F. Now we comes back to your problem, First you should have a deep fryer thermometer they espcially made for deep fryer, (You only mention 400 or better ) that make me think you're only guessing. Knowing the temperature is very important, most Hi limit is set at 420 degree F.
To me it seen the Hi Ltd control is working and that is why it cutting out the pilot when it reach its limit but we don't know what temperature that when the hi limit cutting out at.
When you have a thermometer, put it in the cold oil and turn the temperature to 100 degree F to see what the temperature control cutting out at. slowly increase your setting until it cutting out at 350 degree F . If you set at 250 degree F and the thermometer already reaching 350 degreen F then don't go any further , your temperature control is defective and need to be change a new one.
This is only the first step, you still have to check out the Hi ltd control to see how good its condition is,so far your information say it cutting out at 400 or better. But you've to be sure, because it is a safety control. Hope that will help you , God Bless.

Thermostat does not stop heat pump unit


Most of these problems are the program settings on these way overcomplicated thermostats. You will need to re-read the instructions on setting the programs. Or bite the bullet and buy a cheaper and simpler one. If you installed it yourself, make sure the settings on the inside are correct, like gas/electric heat, and 24 volts, stuff like that.
