My unit is not...

My unit is not operating correctly. I have it set at a temp, and it doesn't come on when the temp goes below the set heating temp. I have to manually hit the set button and it comes on, but then it doesn't turn off once the set temp is reached.

Contractor's Assistant: Did you double-check the thermostat's settings? And what about the filters?

What could be the problem

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I have changed the filters

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

The thermostat settings? on the control panal?

Pro 2000 series

OK on the Pro Series units when they start to not shut off or turn on at set temp the thermostat is bad. They had some issues with the 2000 series doing that, just get a new thermostat I like the Vision Pro units myself. You can get them at Home Depot. Easy to setup and use nice screen size and great battery life.

All I ask is please select the 5 STAR rating at the top of your page before leaving otherwise I receive ZERO credit for assisting you. Thanks and you can come back anytime for free followup questions.
