Here is a listing the most encountered Honeywell thermostat errors. These are applicable to the following programmable thermostats:
If the display is clear on your programmable thermostat, you may need to replace the batteries. If that doesn’t fix the trouble or you use a smart thermostat, there may be a wiring issue.
Next, you should ensure the power is flowing for your furnace or air handler. Confirm the switch near the indoor equipment is switched “on”.
In addition to that, you should confirm all furnace cabinet or air handler doors/panels are tightly secured.
An unsecured panel may trigger the safety switch, which cuts off power to the system.
Less frequently, an empty monitor could indicate you should get a new thermostat.
Check that your thermostat is on “cool” or “heat,” not “off.”
When it’s hot, confirm you schedule the thermostat lower than the room temperature. When it’s cool, make sure it’s higher. This sounds silly, but we’ve seen it take place many times.
Confirm the power switch by your indoor system is in the “on” position. You should also check the cabinet doors or panels are tight on your furnace cabinet or air handler. An open panel can trip the safety switch, cutting off current to the unit.
Unit still won’t run? Confirm circuit breakers haven’t turned off and that your HVAC unit isn’t displaying error codes.
To begin, confirm your thermostat is on “cool” or “heat.”
Then, verify it’s calling for the correct unit to turn on. This is typically indicated by “cool on,” “heat on” or a picture.
If this set of words or the picture is pulsing, your thermostat is in a five-minute delay status. This setting protects your system from damaging short cycling. This could happen if you lose power.
