Question about Hunter Fan Company 5/1/1 Programmable Thermostat
I have the programmable Hunter thermostat and for the most part, it works great. However, sometimes it will go through periods of trying to turn the AC on and failing. I can hear the solenoid in the AC unit clicking, but then the unit doesn't turn on.
I'm thinking this is a thermostat problem because I can turn the thermostat from "Cool" to "off" for about a minute, switch back to "Cool" and the AC will work just fine. This seems to happen mainly in the evening. Any help or anyone with similar problems, let me know. I am currently trying to change the span setting to "3" so that it will have longer cycles. I'm not hopeful that this will fix the problem. Thanks!

Here is a link that will have wiring diagram it is for a similar model hunter. Also check your dip switch on the back of the stat to ensure it is set for gas (HG) or electric heat (HE) depending on your type of unit. Good Luck. Rule of thumb for most four wire systems is RED (power to stat) Yellow (Cooling) Green (Fan) White (heat)

I bought the hunter 44360 programmable thermostat also, and have the same problem with the heat not shutting off. I recently took off the face plate and started looking at the switchess on the back. Look for a switch that has the option "std" or "hp". I flipped the switch to the "std" position and my therrmostat has been working great in heating my home.
hope this helps,

Thermostats don't cool or heat. They are just the control device that tells the furnance or AC to operate and register the present temperature and tell the furnance or A/C to shut off, once the desired temperature has been reached.
Most programmable thermostats will take at least 1-2 weeks to "learn" how long to run the furnance or A/C in order to reach the desired temperatures you've programmed into it, for the time you want it be that temperature. Variables such as extremely hot days and higher humidity will also affect your cooling system.
Give it a little time to self-learn and it should adjust itself after a week or two of operation. You might want to take some time to review and familiarize yourself with the owners manual to see what Hunter advises for setting up and using the thermostat.
You may need to have your A/C checked to see if you're running low on freon, or need to have the coils cleaned, need to change the air filter, etc.
Hope this helps and best regards!
