We moved into our house four months ago. We have a Honeywell Chronotherm
III thermostat. Whether we have the air conditioning running or the heat
running, when the blower stops we can still hear a motor running. Is this
normal? We have never experienced a continuous running of a motor.
It probably has nothing to do with the thermostat. It may have nothing to do
with HVAC either. I would suggest tracing down the "motor" noise. It could
be something like a Radon fan or any number of other things. Locate the
source of the motor noise and you'll know more

I have a Chronotherm IV on a heat pump. It may be similar to the III.
The IV has a programmable fan. It can be set to shut off when the
heating or cooling cycle is finished, or it can be set to shut off 90
seconds after the heating or cooling cycle is finished.
The 90 second option is supposedly more efficient because the residual
heat/cool in the ducts is sent into the living space.
In my case, with a variable speed fan, after a cycle finishes the fan
goes to about half speed for 90 secs before shutting off. Does yours
operate like that?
Getting into the programming mode is a bit tricky without the
"Installation Instructions" . Try going to the Honeywell website and
look for a download. In my case the pamphlet is 69-0936-1.
