it just came back on but it only stays for a minute or two.

Is it a battery powered thermostat or a hard wired thermostat with a wire to the C terminal behind the thermostat?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
it has 2 triple AAA batteries and wires on the wall but theres some small screws that seems like a few of them are not tightly screwed in I'm
thinking they are suppose to be tightened to the wires.they are very small

Yes they have to be screwed in tight to the wire connections or you will have an issue that may be the whole problem you are having.

All I ask is...Please remember to use the RATING LINK ON YOUR PAGE by selecting a star at the top or bottom of the screen before you leave today. Even though you paid the site they will not disburse any part of it to me until you supply a good rating. If you need anything else, just let me know. You can continue asking follow-up questions at no additional charge after rating my service if you still need assistance.
