Hi. I decided today to replace the old mercury thermostat with a new
digital one. I turned off the breaker, removed the the old one,
labelled all the wires, and installed the new one. When I attemped to
start the heat, nothing happened. After I rechecked my work, I
re-installed the original one. Now that does not work either.
Switching the fan to on and trying emergency heat does nothing as well.
My heating system consists of an outside york heat pump, an inside
york blower, and a hyrokinetic unit. The hydrokinetc unit appears to
working fine, as the pipes are too hot to touch and it kicked on a
little while ago. My assumption is something is wrong in the
connection between the thermostat and the blower or some part failed.
Can anyone provide any insight? Since its Saturday, I'm probably stuck
until Monday. Hope it doesn't get too cold. My dad is gonna check it
out tomorrow, but maybe I can get some ideas of where to look and avoid
big repair costs. Thanks!
First of all, this is not the place to ask: Read the FAQ
But, since you were lazy and didnt post in alt.homerepair like you should
have had you bothered to take the time to find the FAQ located at
The suggestion would be that you do not have enough information here to even
make a guess that would be logical, since if you have a FRP airhandler, its
a simple thing, but if you dont, then you need to post more information over
in ALT.HOME.REPAIR and we can guess at it all night long.
Give you one hint tho...you DID turn the power off at the airhandler unit
when you did this didnt you? If you didnt, AND its a FRP unit, replace your
fuse, read the FAQ and post any further comments to alt.home.repair.
BTW....parts dont fail when replacing the thermostat....parts get burned up.
Steve - you wanna take on the task of simply manually posting
something like ' Subject : Read the group FAQ here before posting '
with just the link and a couple of lines of explanatory text, a couple
/ few times a week ? I'm really too busy to write a bot to do it ....
Once or twice a week is plenty, that keeps it on spool.
Rich - maybe you want to do it ??? Anyone other than me ???
Just a manual post once or twice a week, that's all it needs.
Whoever's hosting it these days ( no offense, but I always
forget who ) - you wanna do it ?
