Honeywell Thermostat is not turning on any heat.

Customer Question
My Honeywell Thermostat is not...

My Honeywell Thermostat is not turning on any heat. However, the fan is working but not the Auto. Also, when I went to change the batteries, I forgot to switch it to the OFF position.

Now it displays a flashing battery sign even though I replace it with new ones. Please help me.

If you changed the batteries and it is flashing "Battery" then the batteries may not be installed properly.

We will need to start by troubleshooting the original problem. Did the furnace quit after you changed the batteries?

I checked to see if I had installed them properly and I did...I did not check the furnace though. The furnace did not even turn on..

HVAC Technician: Robert, HVACR Educator replied 8 years ago
Ok, If the fan is working then you have power. Were you having furnace trouble prior to replacing the batteries?

The furnace was not turning on before I changed the batteries...that's why i changed the batteries because I thought that maybe the batteries were old...

Customer reply replied 8 years ago

Yes i was.

I even went and reset the circuit breaker for the heat....did I do something wrong?

HVAC Technician: Robert, HVACR Educator replied 8 years ago
Alright then, I need some furnace information. Can you get me the make, model and approximate age of the furnace? Also, Do you have some skills with common tools or maybe any electrical skills? If I know this I can tailor my responses correctly.

No experience at all....i'll be right back with the information...

HVAC Technician: Robert, HVACR Educator replied 8 years ago
If your fan is running there is power to the thermostat. We will need to check some simple things on the furnace. I notice you are offline. I will be here when you get back on however another tech may send you a post. If you would like to stick with me that's great. Just let them know that.

It's a Bryant Gas Furnace....I'm still searching for the owners manual, though

HVAC Technician: Robert, HVACR Educator replied 8 years ago
It's not necessary for the manual. I need you go to the furnace.

I need to know the model number. It can be found inside the large front cover look to the left. There will be a tag that has a lot of other information

I'm having a problem locating my owners manual....is there any way I could look on the actual furnace itself for that info?

HVAC Technician: Robert, HVACR Educator replied 8 years ago
When you find the information let me know we might be able to make this easy.
