The buttons on my Carrier Thermostat have been acting up.

Expert:  Gaztech replied 1 month ago.

Numbers NG you can find model on the inside part of t-stat if that applies to your t-stat

Expert:  Gaztech replied 1 month ago.

I will sum up to telling you that t-stat touch pad buttons, especially the up and down buttons have worn out the contact point and will need to be replace with new T-Stat
