Error Message RE CO on Indiglo

I woke up this morning and the indiglo was flashing RE CO. The other problem is that in the winter the heater never reaches the desired temp. I have the thermostat set for 66 but most of the time it will be 60 in the house and the heater will be off.

Thank you for your help.

    I have one of these tstats also and I have to say I hate it. I can never get it warm in my house. I have it set at 73 but the temp in here is always in the low 60's. I cant figure out how to get the furnace to turn on and stay on. I also have to rec message flashing and cant seem to reset that. I live in a northern state the temps here are getting down to the teens at night and very cold in my house. I have reset this many times but still cant seem to keep my furnace running.

Auto recovery – allows heating and cooling systems
to gradually recover from an energy-saving setpoint
temperature to a comfort setpoint temperature. Auto recovery
calculates the time needed to adjust the temperature to
the next program setting. When the thermostat is in Auto
Recovery mode, the display will flash alternating messages of
RECO and the time. Auto Recovery can be disabled by sliding
the recovery switch on the back of the circuit board to the
disable position.
(Auto Recovery will not operate if Permanent or Temporary holds
are on.)
Press Hold/Return during the Auto Recovery process to
manually cancel the recovery.

  • How to Set Dial Indiglo Watches

    • 1Pinch the winding knob on the right side of the watch between your thumb and forefinger.

    How to Set Digital Indigo Watches

    • 1 Press the button on the lower right side of your Indiglo watch to unlock the mode function of the watch.

    • 2 Press the button on the lower left side to move through the modes. Each time you are in a mode, the digital display will flash. For example, when the time display begins to flash, you are in the correct mode to set the time.

    Display disappears when Indiglo is pressed

    That means your watch has two batteries - one for the movement and another one for INDIGLO. It may have just one battery, but in this case INDIGLO is taking up too much power. Replace the battery and you will be sorted. Rate me, plz.

    After about two years, my indiglo night light function stopped working. The watch is still working, keeping time. Will changing the battery fix the indiglo problem?

    Definitely, battery change will solve the Indiglo light problem. Many of wristwatches has separate battery for Indiglo function, but my advise is to change them both at once - will be cheaper for you.

    Rate me, please.

    Timex indiglo. Indiglo feature died.

    The indiglo technology is time limited (it dims over the years with use) and cannot be repaired - have you had the watch a long time? if so, I'm afraid it's time to get a new one. Sorry!
