Can anyone tell if my thermostat needs to be replaced. I have a Lenox
Heat Pump with electric aux heater coils and a Lenox 21J7201
thermostat. Last night the outside tempertature dropped down to 12
deg. and the heat pump run almost continuously. Shouldn't the aux.
electric coils have kicked in automatically? I had to manually switch
the emergency heat on after getting enough courage to get out of a
warm bed. I thougtht the electric coil would kink in automatically.
It scares me to go away in the winter if the heat pump won't keep the
waterlines from freezing.
If the thermostat needs to be replaced can you recommend a good DYI
Thanks in advance
I am NOT a fan of Lennox...never have been, never will be...but....
That sounds NOT like a thermostat problem. That sounds as if the E and W2
are not jumped, and they need to be. Lennox uses in some cases different
terminal designations, so yours may not be the same. Rarely, the thermostat
is the actual problem. The E, or emergency heat line works, you proved that.
The W2, or aux heat, uses the same coils. Therefore, a small jumper that
probably was left out, or removed may be the issue, OR, the unit may have an
outdoor thermostat that is either set wrong, or is defective. and will not
allow the coils to come on when in normal heating mode.
Thanks for the help. I checked it out and the jumper was left off
when the heater coil was replaced last spring.
Thanks again, its predicted to go down into the low teens again

CB, I have a problem with my heat that I need to get resolved before it gets
too cold. I see that you are from Carolina and was wondering if you know
anyone reputable here in the VA Beach area? I have an Apollo system in my
home. Unfortunately, the air that comes out of the ducts is barely
lukewarm. I am Active Duty Navy, so I really can't afford to get ripped off
by a heating/AC contractor.
Dear Carl ,
Im going to oppose Stormins view for many reasons , simple and
Where do I start ?
1 Carl asked CB. Obviously because he thinks he is competant,
not you chreesy....
2 CB is as I see it a PRO. his posts prove it
3 Professionals refer pros, equals , or dont refer anyone ,
because their Name is on it, its as bad as a bad reffrence if you
refer a bad guy.
4 Should Carl be concerned on the way a guy talks , NO .....
5 Should Carl worry about rudeness , yes, but honesty and
competance is the true desire.
6 Rudeness displayed on Trolls , hacks, and morons is justified
, This is an UNMODERATED -- - ------MODERATED [get it Chris
],,,,,, . Say- BS ----- Get SLAMED group........
7 CB has more to loose refering a HACK than you know.
8 CB hangs, --- associates with, like, Competance.
9 CB is lisenced, insured , bonded, and as I see it Competant.
10 Your idea of a refferal CHRIS is a CUTBACK.....JOKE.
I told you , I deal with all . The guys that try to screww me are
the NICE ONES, not the rude busy SOBs. I dont care about you, but
dont stick your Mormon SHIT in my face,
THIS - IS -- INTERNET Not for Religion, Race , Creed, Color ,
SO STORMIN DONT YOU GET IT YET < YOU IMPOSE
Dont impose, = less regection = acceptance.
Impose = objection,
Thanks CB. As I said in the initial post, I thought you may know someone
in this area that was fair. There are too many contractors out there that
prey on us military guys. I certainly did not intend to stir up any
