The power was off in my home due to weather I have 2 T8000

Customer Question

The power was off in my home due to weather
I have 2 T8000 series Programmable thermostats.
At the time of the storm, one thermostat was in the ‘cool’ on position and the other was in the off position.
The thermostat that was in the on position didn’t have the working display (digital ghost readout), so I followed troubleshoot directions and it is now functioning properly
The thermostat that was in the ‘off’ position has a blank readout. I followed troubleshoot directions and it is not functioning.
I checked the breaker box and there doesn’t appear to be a tripped switch
Of note…when I moved the switch for the fan from auto to cont, the fan worked correct and continuous.

Thanks for your business!

Not sure what type of furnace you have, but most have a 3 or 5 amp fuse on the furnace control board. I recommend you check that.
