i also checked the breaker/fuse panel. everything seems fine there.

Put the fan switch to the on position while the heat/cool selector was on heat. the blower did not come on. However, when I switched the selector to off (between heat and cool) while the fan switch was still in the on position, the ac fan came on! i switched to cool and the ac fan stayed on. so there is something wrong with the thermostat.

Hi my name is Robert

Sorry for the delay... It does sound like the thermostat is at fault... As soon as you select the furnace mode and turn the temp up on the thermostat the fan should kick on right away for the furnace. Some furnaces will have a circuit breaker located under the outside access panel (if you have a panel)... The thermostat will send a signal to the circuit board on the furnace, so it is possible that could be an issue. Being a 2014 I would let a shop take a look, normally you have a year warranty, if you start taking to many items apart you could void that warranty, I have seen that happen before. So I would advise if all your fuses look good to have a shop take a look.... Hope this helps some... Robert
