I don't want my thermostat programmed to just come on at

Customer Question

I don't want my thermostat programmed to just come on at certain times. I want to set a temperature, and leave it there. However, I can't figure out how to do it. Can you help?
JA: Just to clarify, do you think this is a larger HVAC problem, or something specific to the thermostat?
Customer: My thought that it is the thermostat. A work crew was here, and I think they adjusted it.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: Yes.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: It has three buttons across the bottom, and three buttons on the side - an up arrow, a down arrow, and a hold button.

I'm on an IPad. I can't do all that on my IPad. Can I email the picture? If so, where should I send it?
Expert:  airheatman replied 11 months ago.

THe website will not allow us to share emails. Grasp thermostat gently on both sides and pull straight out.Most all newer thermostats just clip onto the subase which is screwd to the wall.

Excellent, Below is a link to the thermostat manual. Open the link and scroll down to page 15 to see how to put the thermostat in an override position either temporarily or permanently. When in override any programming will be ignored ant it will maintain your current setting.
