I installed a White Rodgers 1F95-1271 and it has proven to run
correctly in all ways but one...maybe? When it is set to heat the fan
runs constantly? Can anyone tell me if this is a normal operation in
I've read that constantly running the fan/blower has its benefits in
the winter for even heat throughout the home. When my target heat is
reached I can confirm that the fan in the heatpump system outside stops
and the heatpump stops humming, but the fan inside keeps going.
Yes, the problem is actually worse then I thought. After the heat cuts
off the fan continues to run and it still gets warmer. I think that
since I see the heatpump stop the electric furnace must be running
I'm going to call White Rodgers tomorrow but and as if the problem
might be from this line in the install manual.
"Note: If your system does not provide an E connection, jumper W2 to
W/E to use the Auxiliary Heat in the Emergency Mode"
My HVAC system did have a E wire going to an E terminal in the old
thermostat. But the White Rodgers tech guy told me to jump W2 and W/E
and connect the E wire to the W/E terminal.
Maybe I shouldn't have jumped them?
You better call a qualified technician to diagnose your system and perform
needed repairs, servicing, and maintenance. You are likely very near
burning your house down at present.
Don't mess with stuff you don't have the training to work on.
Noon-Air tried to get things rollin'
but couldn't hold out for too long.
Notice the scare tactic, threatening
the ol' pocketbook.
Then, Oscar_Lives chimed in with this tidbit of wisdom:
Notice the scare tactic common amongst the Teckies,
I even got this one with an earlier post.
Notice the "servicing and maintenance" pitch, that's the
long term hook.
Then rfofaky closed the deal for the local HVAC crooks:with
this astounding observation.:
Once again the boys at alt.hvac are at it again.
Your all so desperate to keep the masses ignorant.
You don't care which Tech gets the contract as long
as the HomeMoaner is left in the dark.
At least Noon-Air gave it his best with the, "it's
not normal" observation...jeeze.
Yep, and they will keep doing it. After all, it took most of these
brainiacs 10 years to learn how to correctly wire a
thermostat.......only fitting that they would treat it like a highly
guarded trade secret! Probably best for the OP anyway, 'cause they
don't know the first thing about the electric requirements of HVAC
equipment. Not the first one of them can produce an HVAC schedule from
a set of blueprints, simply because they have never seen one or know
what the fuck one is. Most of these wizards couldn't make it in the
trade or get hired by real HVAC contractors, so they became self-
appointed "contractors" or finally passed an exam after taking it 5 or
6 times. Thus, the learning curve dropped off rapidly and they remain
in a state of ignorance. That's why the angry, adolescent behavior.
It's downright pitiful when they compare themselve's to MD's and PhD
Chemists <sniker>. They desperately have a need to be called
professionals, yet have no idea what behavior a real professional
exhibits. If you want a good laugh, just take a look at this board
from last June when they pissed off the wrong "homoaner."
