Customer Question
Thermostat making a humming...

Thermostat making a humming sound. model 47110A

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

Don't know the sound is coming from the termostat itself

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

Depends on what the problem is

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

Just the sound I guess
