There are three kinds of thermostats:

Each Honeywell thermostat has a special group of codes matching the problems that take place.
Think how easy it can be to fix a computer by restarting it. In many instances, correcting a thermostat can be just as easy.
Here is a listing the most reported Honeywell thermostat issues. These apply to the following programmable thermostats:
If the screen is empty on your programmable thermostat, you could need to get new batteries. If that doesn’t fix the malfunction or you use a smart thermostat, there might be a wiring problem.
Next, you should make sure the power is flowing for your furnace or air handler. Confirm the switch near the indoor equipment is in the “on” position.
Additionally, you should make certain all furnace cabinet or air handler doors/panels are securely fastened.
A loose panel may trip the safety switch, which disconnects power to the unit.
Less frequently, a clear display can signify you should install a new thermostat.
Check that your thermostat is switched to “cool” or “heat,” not “off.”
In the summer, confirm you set the thermostat below the current temperature. When it’s cool, verify it’s higher. This sounds absurd, but we’ve seen it occur a lot of times.
Ensure the power switch near your indoor equipment is in the “on” position. You should also check the cabinet doors or panels are tight on your furnace cabinet or air handler. An open panel can activate the safety switch, diverting current to the unit.
System still won’t start? Confirm circuit breakers haven’t turned off and that your HVAC system isn’t showing error codes.
To start, check your thermostat is switched to “cool” or “heat.”
Then, verify it’s calling for the right equipment to turn on. This is usually indicated by “cool on,” “heat on” or a picture.
If this phrase or the icon is pulsing, your thermostat is in a five-minute delay status. This mode stops your equipment from bad short cycling. This can happen if you lose power.
