Up for summer And DOWN for Winter is best

Make sure that your room temperature is lower than your desired final heating temperature (or higher than your cooling temperature). Next check your wires to the thermostat. Some thermostats have screw terminals; others you push the wire into place after holding open a "lever".
A few months ago, we found that a few of the conductor wires had broken behind the thermostat. On stripping the insulation from the unbroken section of those wires and reconnecting them to the thermostat, it worked fine. There are 4-5 wires behind the thermostat, the wires that control the relays to turn on and off the heating and cooling are different from the power wires.

Next check your system. Change the filter and make sure that the door over the filter is closed. If it isn't seated, you may get a fail-safe over-riding the controls. Some newer systems will have LEDs that give trouble codes. Refer to your manual if you see any lights/code numbers. You also should check the wiring at the furnace/heat pump/AC unit. Another possibility is that the control board for the unit is damaged. (This also happened to us - a close lightning strike caused a surge that destroyed a portion of the circuit board. Your unit should have a trouble-shooting section that tells how to test the system by bypassing certain jumpers.) If the problem is at the board, call a repair person. They'll probably have the correct part on hand if you give them the make/model when you schedule the service call.
Please add a comment with information about your heating and cooling system hardware and any trouble-shooting lights, if present, for additional assistance.

I have the same unit, 44422. The base has four clips, two on the top and two on the bottom. The front portion is clip-on. Try to push on the base's bottom and pull off the front portion, like opening a book. After the battery replacement you will have to reset the unit trough the little reset hole. Otherwise, the ''LOW BATTERY" will not go away. Yes, you will have to reprogram the unit.

I have a manual thermostat with the following wire connections (Y, G, R, O, C, & E) with the respective wires attached (yellow, green, red, orange, blue, white). My 44260 has available G, Rc, Rh, Y/O, W/B, Y1. Which wires should I connect to which terminals on the 44160. Thanks.

Reprogram it and then hold down the button that says hold until it goes back to the screen that should fix it the blinking 4 is just saying you are in the 4th programming stage of the day. Mine was blinking on 3 yesterday and when I reprogrammed it it stopped blinking
