I did try searching... honestly.
Your search for 1E56W309 did not return a result. Please re-enter your Model Number.

Hmmm, Try to Google this exact phrase:
1E56W 309 manual
then click on the first match & look for 1E56W-309 on that page

Got it! Thanks.
Before I got the manual, I adjusted the screw on the back of the thermometer to align the current temp with a digital thermometer. I then set the required temp to about 72 degrees (f). The a/c is cutting out at about 80-81. The a/c is still cutting out

what makes you think it is the WR thermostat that is wrong?

While you've got the thing out, check and make sure there's insulation in the wall behind the stat. If there isn't, stuff some in the hole where the wire comes out.

Agree: Not sure where that theory or perhaps 'myth' comes from? That is the idea that because house has been cooler for the past eight to ten hours over night it somehow takes MORE heat to bring it back up to your day time temperature!
There are a lot of variables of courses but while people seem to accept that if they go away for several weeks (in say the winter) and turn down the thermostat real low the furnace will use less oil/gas while they are away. Sure enough the house will be really cool, even chilly when they return and turn up to the 'normal' setting but once it has warmed back up, once, they will be back to their normal daily heating cycle and consumption will be based on outside temperatures, wind heat loss and how well the structure is insulated.
In fact it could be argued that the furnace operating in the morning to bring house back up to day temp. will be operating more efficiently that in a constant cutting in and out mode?
Maybe the thought is based on the old fashioned idea of allowing the stove to be damped down, or even allowed to go out during the night and then getting up in the morning, stoking it and opening up the draft to get a 'roaring' fire to heat the house up again?

compensate for a difference between the display and the set temperature readouts. I believe that the max adjustment is about 3 or 4 degrees. Have you used an accurate thermometer to determine the actual temperature at the thermostat location? New batteries? MLD

To be honest, I never knew that mechanical thermostats could have batteries. As I said in original post, we recently moved into this post. One day last week, the stat read about 72 degrees and I was *really* uncomfortable. I placed two digit thermomoters (separately) on top of the stat and they each displayed about 80-81 degress.
