Honeywell is one of the leading thermostat brands, and we proudly install them on a frequent basis in Fort Worth. They’re durable and dependable. In addition, Honeywell is regularly updating its technology, offering more features for your residence.
Still, every thermostat can experience problems now and again. That’s why we’ve put together this useful handbook to run through troubleshooting. While Honeywell thermostat troubleshooting problems are rare, they do occur.

Let’s begin the process by finding out what type of thermostat your house has.
There are three kinds of thermostats:
As you know many technologically advanced solutions, there are regular glitches that may occur. Most of these problems don’t call for Expert assistance and are simple to repair on your own.
Every Honeywell thermostat has a special group of codes matching the malfunctions that occur.
Think how simple it can be to restore a computer by restarting it. For the most part, diagnosing a thermostat can be just as easy.
Here is a guide to the most encountered Honeywell thermostat problems. These are applicable to the following programmable thermostats:
If the display is clear on your programmable thermostat, you may need to install new batteries. If that doesn’t solve the trouble or you have a smart thermostat, there may be a wiring problem.
Next, you should ensure the power is flowing for your furnace or air handler. Verify the switch by the indoor equipment is switched “up”.
In addition to that, you should make certain all furnace cabinet or air handler doors/panels are tightly fastened.
An unsecured panel may trip the safety switch, which stops power to the equipment.
Less frequently, an empty display might indicate you should install a new thermostat.
Check that your thermostat is set to “cool” or “heat,” not “off.”
When it’s hot, confirm you put the thermostat below the current temperature. When it’s cold, confirm it’s higher. This sounds absurd, but we’ve seen it take place lots of times.
Confirm the power switch by your indoor equipment is in the “on” position. You should also comfirm the cabinet doors or panels are tight on your furnace cabinet or air handler. An open panel can trip the safety switch, diverting power to the system.
Heating or cooling still won’t start? Verify circuit breakers haven’t turned off and that your HVAC unit isn’t showing error codes.
To start, check your thermostat is set to “cool” or “heat.”
Then, check it’s calling for the right equipment to run. This is typically demonstrated by “cool on,” “heat on” or an illustration.
If this phrase or the picture is pulsing, your thermostat is in a five-minute delay status. This mode stops your equipment from damaging short cycling. This may take place if you lose electricity.
