Customer Question
Have an Aprilaire Model...

Have an Aprilaire Model 8334. Changed batteries. Still wont turn on. One on floor below is fine and have heat on that level

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

Haven't changed filters in a while

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

Would like to if possible. The unit is on second floor and services second and third floor. It is working on second floor but thermostat won't start on third floor

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

That's it

If batteries are new and still dont light up its probably toast, but first try putting batteries the wrong way for 10 sec. then put back in the right way, sometime that works
