Hi, I'm Tim and I'm an HVAC expert here to help answer your question(s). Please provide all the information I ask for since I'm not onsite. At the end of our dialog you will be asked to rate my service, but please wait until then and all your question(s) have been answered satisfactorily. Thanks for your business!
Let's try this: take the front part of the thermostat off the wall, loose from the back part and wiring. Take the batteries out of the thermostat (if applicable) and lets leave it off the wall with no batteries for 20 minutes or so, then put fresh batteries in and remount. Let me know if display still shows all 8's.

I pulled it off the wall, I do not see batteries. What am I looking for?
HVAC Technician: Tim H., HVAC Professional replied 3 years ago
As I said, batteries may or MAY NOT be applicable. If you don't see them, this unit probably doesn't have them.

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Ok, what next?
HVAC Technician: Tim H., HVAC Professional replied 3 years ago
Leave off the wall for 20 minutes or so, and then try again. We are trying to remove all sources of power form the unit, sort of like a reboot.

Ok. There is a little black switch on the back. It can be set to an "e" or "f". I read somewhere that this can be switched back and forth and sometimes helps. It have elec forced air, is "f" the correct setting?
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Hi, can you please confirm correct setting e or f before I put the thermostat back on the wall.
HVAC Technician: Tim H., HVAC Professional replied 3 years ago
Leave that setting where it was previously, please.

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Ok but I just want to confirm because I did move it. I correct myself, I have a gas furnace and the setting is on f, just want to make sure. I put it back on and it is working like a charm. Thank you. Please just confirm I have the right setting. Thank you again.
HVAC Technician: Tim H., HVAC Professional replied 3 years ago
If you have a forced air gas furnace, then yes, F is the right setting. So it's OK now? Great!
Yes, good luck! Thank you for using Just Answer and please don't forget to rate my service as that's how experts get paid (Thanks in advance for any bonus left). Otherwise experts work at their own time and expense. Feel free to post back with any additional questions.
