Did you pay the cable bill?
Oh, you mean on the thermostat. First I'd check the batteries. If that
does not fix the problem, you can often just jump two wires together and
that will start the heater. Meantime, get a new 'stat.
I have to tell my recent story. I started noticing my furnace was acting
strange. Outside, I heard the draft fan cycling. I seemed to notice changes
in performance. One day I turned up the heat in the morning, about 7
degrees. Took an hour. Second day I verified and called serviceman. On the
privious day I did change batteries. I knew from past experience low
batteries caused some other malfunction in logic, and battery low indicator
does not come on before this happens. Batteries were 2.6 volts instead of 3
volt. Service man tested furnace at furnace, ran fine. Next day same
problem, gas valve would cycle on off with draft motor running
continuously. I banged on thermostat, display went dead. I dont think this
was the problem, but gave me an excuse to buy a cheap honneywell. I
installed and things were fine. I never heard the other thermostat click
off. I'm suspecting some kind of poor intermittent contact, possibly in
relay. Connections seemed tight. I could have tried to measure with meter,
but I was in a hurry to get heat. The other troubleshooting issue I was
having, I changed air filter before serviceman came. We were thinking
possible restriction might have caused cycling. Working fine now, but I
hate the cheap thermostat.
