Hunter Fan Company 5/1/1 Programmable Thermostat - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

Hummm... how far is your Thermostat from your heater? I am reading your extensive manual but there is no mention of that distance? There was a early mention of batteries? Are yours fresh?

Is this a 'new' problem? Has it worked properly before?

Then there is this from the manual:

The installer can set SYSTEM functions once the thermostat is installed. The
default settings are shown in bold in the following list. Options are listed inside the
parentheses. Example: the default SYSTEM TYPE is CONVENTIONAL with (HEAT PUMP) as a second option. See pages 28-29 to change these settings.

Have you tried resetting your Thermostat?? Sometimes these basic 'onboard' computers get confused... especially true with lots of 'options'...

It's a little hassle to get a DIGITAL copy of your manual (I am not a Robot ~ etc) ~ but here it is:

This should help you. You need to know if your thermostat is powered by the unit or independently and which way your reversing valve switches (I,m not sure on a Bryant, but probably Your old O wire goes to your new O terminal. They should pretty much match up, the new stat just has more options. Thermostat wiring

If you don't have the wiring information, go here: and see page 10.  
If you're still having problems, go down to the furnace room and find the piece of equipment that you're wiring to.  See where the wires came from, transpose that to the information above.  Note: the wiring from the relay box should be 24 volts which is safe to handle.  Wiring inside the relay box may be 110 or more volts which is not!!!  Cut power before opening relay boxes.
As far as heater running continuously, be sure of your wiring.  You may have the gas relay lead and the fan lead reversed.  Determine if you've set the switch options for your type of heater correctly!!!  Do you hear the relay clicking in and out at or near the room temp when you change the setpoint?  If not, the unit may be defective.

List of things to check:

Are the batteries good?
Is the system switch set to heat, and not cool?
Does the fan come on when you set the fan switch to ON?

If none of these things seem to be the problem, call hunter fan tech support at 1-888-830-1326

It could be, or it could be a wiring issue. Make sure that your wires are in the correct place (R or Rh and W), and that they are not touching each other. If you have the unit running, and you disconnect either of the wires, it should shut off. If it does not, then the problem is in the wiring. Hope this helps

Just fixed mine;

Note the sensor channel on face of remote
Mine was set on Ch15, well the thermostat only monitors 14 channels had to flick down dip switch #1 to set Ch7.

Then on the base unit thermostat, see page 5 of a similar unit for 44668/44665 manual (below) then wait about 10 minutes for things to sync up, and press remote button to check sensor temp.

Note the button order for Remote Sensor Programming at base thermostat:

You can get the manual at:

Normally these thermostats read remote temperatures but do not use them for control. The external remote sensor is normally put outside in our area yeilding an inside out side thermometer.

Go to the website of the thermostat. You can download the owners and installation manuals there.

I am not sure but it sounds like that is what it is should do.

Hunter Fan... | Answered on May 13, 2014 | 80 views

My suggestion is to replace it.

Hunter Fan... | Answered on May 13, 2014 | 260 views

The most likely problem is the wall on which the thermostat is mounted. The thermostat is designed to read the temperature of the space in the room, but if the wall is exceptionally warm or cold it can really throw off the actual reading.
Options might be to stuff insulation into the wall behind the thermostat, or relocate it to a wall that is more consistent in temperature with the actual temperature in the room.

I have this same issue but figured out it is just the energy savings system regulating the change in temperature it doesn't really mean anything It is only for your system but if you place your thermostat on a temperature hold it won't go through the auto recovery system

Having a problem with my fan staying on continuously even after my furnace has finished heating. Cool air blows throughout the house all day and night.

Hunter Fan... | Answered on Jan 06, 2014 | 1,710 views

Remove batteries.
Insert a paperclip or similar object into the "reset" hole and hold in for 10+ seconds.
Insert new batteries.
This should reset the thermostat to factory settings and clear all programs, and it should work normally afterwards.

If the error occurs again within a month, then call Hunter tech support at 888-830-1326 between 7am - 7pm US Central timezone.
