Customer Question
HI MY NAMEIS *****...

HI MY NAMEIS ***** *****. I HAVE A TROL A TEMP ZONE SYSTEM AND MY THERMOSTATS ARE GOING BAD. THE DEALER TOLD ME THEY CONTACTED HONEYWELL AND THEY SAID THAT THE TH8110R1008 WOULD WORK WITH THE SYSTEM BUT I CANT MAKE IT WORK.

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

If I TURN THE FAN TO ON IT WILL RUN THE FURNACE BUT WONT SHUT OFF AT TEMP. THERMOSTAT.

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

YES

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

EVERYTHING WORKS BUT ONE OF MY OLDER THERMOSTATS SO I AM REPLACING ONE AT A TIME. IT IS A SLAVE UNIT I AM REPLACING FIRST.
