Installation
2.
TURN OFF POWER TO THE HEATING SYSTEM AT THE MAIN
POWER PANEL TO AVOID ELECTRICAL SHOCK.
All cables and connections must comply with local electrical
codes.
This thermostat has tinned copper wires for line and load connections. Special CO/ALR solderless connectors must be used if
these wires will be connected to aluminium conductors.
4-wire installation
Install the thermostat onto an electrical box.
Install the thermostat about 5 feet high, on an inside wall facing
the heater.
Avoid locations where there are air drafts (such as the top of a
staircase or an air outlet), dead air spots (such as behind a
door), or direct sunlight.
Do not install the thermostat on a wall that conceals chimney or
stove pipes.
The thermostat wires are not polarized; either wire can be connected to the load or to the power supply.

Troubleshooting
9.
PROBLEM
SOLUTIONS
Thermostat’s housing is
hot.
This is normal. When the thermostat is
running at full capacity, its housing can
reach 40 °C (104 °F).
Wrong temperature is
displayed.
Correct if any the following conditions
applies:
•
The thermostat is exposed to an
air draft.
•
The sticker on the thermostat’s
screen has not been removed.
•
The thermostat is located near or
above a heat source such as a
light dimmer.
Wrong time is displayed.
The thermostat was without power for
more than 5 hours.
•
Temperature does not
change according to the
programmed schedule.
•
LP reappears on the
screen and disappears
after a few minutes.
Display looks faded
when heating is activated.
The load of the heating system is probably less than the required minimum.
This thermostat cannot be used for
loads below that rating.
