I had a Honeywell programmable thermostat Model RTH230B

Customer Question

I had a Honeywell programmable thermostat Model RTH230B installed 1.5 years ago. I have been running the system in manual mode. I turn the A/C off at night and use it only when I am working in my office.
Today the temperature is 92 F. outside and all of a sudden my A/C system shut off. I followed the instructions for replacing the AA batteries as listed. However, when I removed the old batteries I failed to turn the system switch OFF. However, the unit was not running when I did this. I fetched my User Guide and then followed the right protocol for installing 2 brand new Duracell AA batteries. The battery icon still shows. I reset the Hour and Minutes and the Day on the screen. BUT THE SYSTEM WILL NOT GO BACK ON. Thanks for your help. Michael XXXX, New Orleans LA.
