The Deadband is the number of degrees or minutes that the
thermostat waits before it initiates the stages of heating or cooling.
1st Stage Deadband Specifies the minimum temperature
difference between the room temperature and the desired
setpoint before the first stage of heating or cooling is allowed
to turn on. For example, if the heat setpoint is 68˚ and the 1st
Stage deadband is set to 2 degrees, the room temperature
will need to drop to 66 degrees before the heat turns on.

Installation Instructions
Remove and Replace the old thermostat
To install the thermostat properly, please follow these step by step
instructions. If you are unsure about any of these steps, call a qualified
technician for assistance.
• Assemble tools: Flat blade screwdriver, wire cutters and wire
strippers.
• Make sure your Heater/Air Conditioner is working properly
before beginning installation of the thermostat.
• Carefully unpack the thermostat.
Save the screws, any brackets,
and instructions.
• Turn off the power to the Heating/Air Conditioning system at
the main fuse panel. Most residential systems have a separate
breaker for disconnecting power to the furnace.
• Remove the cover of the old thermostat.
If it does not come off
easily, check for screws.
• Loosen the screws holding the thermostat base or subbase to
the wall and lift away.
• Disconnect the wires from the old thermostat. Tape the ends of
the wires as you disconnect them, and mark them with the letter
of the terminal for easy reconnection to the new thermostat.
• Keep the old thermostat for reference purposes, until your new
thermostat is functioning properly.

This dip switch configures the thermostat to control a
conventional gas/electric system or a heat pump. If your

*For some commercial heat pumps, this switch may need
to be set for GAS/EL. Consult the commercial heat pump
literature.

GAS ELEC
When the GAS/EL or HP dip switch is configured for HP,
this dip switch (O or B) must be set to control the
appropriate reversing valve. If O is chosen, the W1/O/B
terminal will energize in cooling. If B is chosen, the
W1/O/B terminal will energize in heating.
1. When GAS/EL or HP is set for GAS/EL:
This switch (GAS or ELEC) controls how the thermostat
will control the Fan (G) terminal in heating mode. When
GAS is chosen, the thermostat will not energize the
Fan (G) terminal in heating. When ELEC is chosen the
thermostat will energize the fan in heating.
2. When GAS/EL or HP is set for HP:
This switch (GAS or ELEC) defines the Aux Heat type.
When GAS is chosen, the auxiliary heat will not be
allowed to run during heat pump operation. When
using a Dual Fuel system, set this switch for GAS.
When ELEC is chosen, up to two stages of auxiliary
strip heat will be allowed to run.

Troubleshooting
• SYMPTOM: The thermostat touchscreen buttons are not responsive.
CAUSE: The touchscreen is out of calibration.
REMEDY: Remove the thermostat from the backplate. Push the
thermostat back onto the backplate, while keeping your finger pressed
firmly against the center of the touchscreen, until the Calibration
screen appears. Re-calibrate the Touchscreen.
• SYMPTOM: The display is blank.
CAUSE: Lack of proper power.
REMEDY: Make sure the power is on to the HVAC and that you have
24vac between R & C.
• SYMPTOM: The air conditioning does not attempt to turn on.
CAUSE: The cooling setpoint is set too high.
REMEDY: Lower the cooling setpoint or lower the cooling set-point
limit. See Setpoint Limits (page 28).
• SYMPTOM: The heating does not attempt to turn on.
CAUSE: The heating setpoint is set too low.
REMEDY: Raise the heating setpoint or raise the heating set-point limit.
See Setpoint Limits (page 28).
• SYMPTOM: When controlling a residential heat pump, and asking for
cooling, the heat comes on.
CAUSE: The thermostat reversing valve dip switch is set for “B”.
REMEDY: Set the reversing valve jumper for “O”.
• SYMPTOM: When calling for cooling, both the heat and cool come on.
CAUSE: The thermostat equipment dip switch is configured for “HP”
and the HVAC unit is a Gas/Electric.
REMEDY: Set the equipment dip switch for “Gas”.
• SYMPTOM: Air handler control board fuse blows when thermostat
is attached to backplate with power on, but does not blow until the
thermostat is placed onto the backplate.
CAUSE: The Outdoor sensor and/or sensor wiring is shorted.
REMEDY: Check/replace Outdoor sensor and/or sensor wiring.

Warranty
One-Year Warranty - This Product is warranted to be free from defects in material and workmanship.
If it appears within one year from the date of original installation, whether or not actual use begins
on that date, that the product does not meet this warranty, a new or remanufactured part, at the
manufacturer’s sole option to replace any defective part, will be provided without charge for the part
itself provided the defective part is returned to the distributor through a qualified servicing dealer.
THIS WARRANTY DOES NOT INCLUDE LABOR OR OTHER COSTS incurred for diagnosing, repairing,
removing, installing, shipping, servicing or handling of either defective parts or replacement parts.
Such costs may be covered by a separate warranty provided by the installer.
THIS WARRANTY APPLIES ONLY TO PRODUCTS IN THEIR ORIGINAL INSTALLATION LOCATION AND
BECOMES VOID UPON REINSTALLATION.
LIMITATIONS OF WARRANTIES – ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES (INCLUDING IMPLIED WARRANTIES
OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND MERCHANTABILITY) ARE HEREBY LIMITED IN
DURATION TO THE PERIOD FOR WHICH THE LIMITED WARRANTY IS GIVEN. SOME STATES DO NOT
ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS, SO THE ABOVE MAY NOT
APPLY TO YOU. THE EXPRESSED WARRANTIES MADE IN THIS WARRANTY ARE EXCLUSIVE AND
MAY NOT BE ALTERED, ENLARGED, OR CHANGED BY ANY DISTRIBUTOR, DEALER, OR OTHER
PERSON WHATSOEVER.
ALL WORK UNDER THE TERMS OF THIS WARRANTY SHALL BE PERFORMED DURING NORMAL
WORKING HOURS. ALL REPLACEMENT PARTS, WHETHER NEW OR REMANUFACTURED, ASSUME
AS THEIR WARRANTY PERIOD ONLY THE REMAINING TIME PERIOD OF THIS WARRANTY.
THE MANUFACTURER WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR:
1.Normal maintenance as outlined in the installation and servicing instructions or owner’s manual,
including filter cleaning and/or replacement and lubrication.
2.Damage or repairs required as a consequence of faulty installation, misapplication, abuse,
improper servicing, unauthorized alteration or improper operation.
3.Failure to start due to voltage conditions, blown fuses, open circuit breakers or other damages
due to the inadequacy or interruption of electrical service.
4.Damage as a result of floods, winds, fires, lightning, accidents, corrosive environments or other
conditions beyond the control of the Manufacturer.
5.Parts not supplied or designated by the Manufacturer, or damages resulting from their use.
6.Manufacturer products installed outside the continental U.S.A., Alaska, Hawaii, and Canada.
7. Electricity or fuel costs or increases in electricity or fuel costs for any reason whatsoever
including additional or unusual use of supplemental electric heat.
8.ANY SPECIAL INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL PROPERTY OR COMMERCIAL DAMAGE OF ANY
NATURE WHATSOEVER. Some states do not allow the exclusion of incidental or consequential
damages, so the above may not apply to you.
This warranty gives you specific legal rights and you may also have other rights which may vary
from state to state.
