Customer Question
Our lux stopped working...

Our lux stopped working so we replaced the AA batteries but the furnace won’t go on and it’s 9degrees outside

Contractor's Assistant: Did you check the furnace's filters?

They’re okay

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

I guess so unless you can suggest anyone who can help us

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

We live in Rochester, ny

Issue is most likely not with thermostat itself but the furnace.To determine,remove R and W wires from thermostat and touch wires together to see if furnace will come on.Let me know and that will tell us which way to go.
