Customer Question
Hello. Just put a...

Hello. Just put a newer thermostat om my late 90' s HJ Hi. Just put a new thermostat on my late 80's model Janitrol. Worked for a short time and then apparently some wires crossed and from that point no control voltage. Is there a breaker in the unit itself that I can reset? Can't seen to find it. Thanks For ANY info.

Contractor's Assistant: Just to clarify, do you think this is a larger HVAC problem, or something specific to the thermostat?

The breaker outside has not popped. I am pretty sure is the low voltage transformer.

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

If I can. That'w if there is a breaker to reset. Otherwise not.

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

That's enough for now. Have a tech coming tomm if needed.
