Single Setpoint Heating & Cooling
Auto Changeover with Reversing Valve
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Your new digital thermostat has been designed to
provide accurate control and display of room temperature. In addition, it also will display all relevant information pertaining to your system.
The clearly marked buttons and informative display
make it extremely easy to understand and simple to
use.
Please take a few moments to read the brief instructions and familiarize yourself with the various functions in order to obtain maximum benefit from this
truly unique electronic control.
GENERAL INFORMATION
The thermostat normally displays room temperature,
mode of operation and whether cooling or heating is
currently on. The two buttons on the front of the unit
allow complete control of the equipment.
111-172B
Raising or lowering the setpoint is as simple as pushing a button. In addition, you may choose to display
the temperature in °F or °C.
The thermostat also allows you to select continuous
fan operation (useful when using an air cleaner) or
have the fan come on with the equipment.
The model 8539 is a single-setpoint heat/cool thermostat. It features a narrow, fixed deadband between
internal heat and cool setpoints.
USER CONTROLS
COOLER
To lower the temperature in the zone, press and hold
the ✞ button until the desired temperature is displayed, then release.
WARMER
To raise the temperature in the zone, press and hold
the ✟ button until the desired temperature is displayed, then release.
The number that is displayed when the button is
released is the new setpoint or control temperature
for the zone. The display will return to the normal
room temperature display after a few seconds.
USER CONTROLS (Cont’d)
FAN $
The fan will come on automatically when the system
is operating, but there is no indication of this on the
display. To select continuous fan operation, press
the FAN button and the display will show $. This
is recommended for electronic air cleaners or continuous ventilation requirements.
NOTE: For fan coil applications in which the O and
B output terminals control valve position, DO NOT
use continuous fan.
REMOTE SENSOR (OPTION)
RS1 – RS2 – RS+V
The thermostat is designed to accept the electronic
remote sensor, which will allow you to locate your
thermostat in an area away from view. Indoor and
outdoor sensors are available separately.
CELSIUS/FAHRENHEIT
Simultaneously press ✞ and ✟ to switch between
Celsius and Fahrenheit temperature display.

goes off. When cooling, the snowflake flickers and
the flame goes off.

TWO YEAR LIMITED WARRANTY
Your Research Products Corporation Aprilaire ® Thermostat unit is
expressly warranted for two (2) years from the date of installation to be
free from defects.
Research Products Corporation’s exclusive obligation under this warranty shall be to supply, without charge, a replacement for any thermostat which is found to be defective within a two (2) year period and
which is returned no later than thirty (30) days after said two (2) year
period by you to either your original supplier or to Research Products
Corporation, Madison, Wisconsin, 53701, together with the model number, manufacturing code number and installation date of the thermostat.
NOTES
POWER FAILURES
Your thermostat employs the latest developments in
solid state electronic technology.
One of the unique features of your thermostat is that
no battery is required to maintain your selected setpoints in the event of a power loss as the memory is
unaffected by power failures of any duration.
LIMITED OVERRIDE
When the keyboard is locked (DIP switch #2 ON),
the user may override the temperature setpoint for 1
hour by pressing either the ✞ or ✟ button. The
range of temperature override is ±6°F or ±3°C from
the programmed daytime setpoint.
THIS WARRANTY SHALL NOT OBLIGATE RESEARCH PRODUCTS CORPORATION FOR ANY LABOR COSTS AND SHALL NOT APPLY TO DEFECTS IN
WORKMANSHIP OR MATERIALS FURNISHED BY YOUR INSTALLER AS CONTRASTED TO DEFECTS IN THE THERMOSTAT ITSELF.
IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE SHALL BE LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE AFORESAID TWO
(2) YEAR PERIOD. RESEARCH PRODUCTS CORPORATION’S LIABILITY FOR
INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, OTHER THAN DAMAGES FOR
PERSONAL INJURIES, RESULTING FROM ANY BREACH OF THE AFORESAID
IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR THE ABOVE LIMITED WARRANTY IS EXPRESSLY
EXCLUDED. THIS LIMITED WARRANTY IS VOID IF DEFECT(S) RESULT FROM
FAILURE TO HAVE THIS UNIT INSTALLED BY A QUALIFIED HEATING AND
AIR CONDITIONING CONTRACTOR. IF THE LIMITED WARRANTY IS VOID
DUE TO FAILURE TO USE A QUALIFIED CONTRACTOR, ALL DISCLAIMERS
OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES SHALL BE EFFECTIVE UPON INSTALLATION.
When power is restored, the thermostat will continue
operating as if the power had never been off.
TEMPERATURE ACCURACY
Full temperature accuracy will be realized only after
the thermostat has been installed and powered for
at least one hour.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
THERMOSTAT INSTALLATION
LOCATION
To ensure proper operation, the thermostat should be
mounted on an inside wall in a frequently occupied
area of the building. In addition, its position must be
at least 18" (46cm) from any outside wall, and approximately 5' (1.5m) above the floor in a location with
freely circulating air of an average temperature.
BE SURE TO AVOID THE FOLLOWING LOCATIONS:
- behind doors or in corners where freely circulating
air is unavailable
- where direct sunlight or radiant heat from appliances might affect control operation
- on an outside wall
- adjacent to, or in line with, conditioned air discharge grilles, stairwells, or outside doors
- where its operation may be affected by steam or
water pipes or warm air stacks in an adjacent partition space, or by an unheated/uncooled area
behind the thermostat
- where its operation will be affected by the supply
air of an adjacent unit
- near sources of electrical interference such as arcing relay contacts
1. Insert a flat blade screwdriver or coin 1/8" into the
slot located in the bottom center of the thermostat
case and twist 1/4 turn. When you feel or hear a click,
grasp the case from the bottom two corners and separate from the subbase as shown in the diagram at
the right. Some models require more force than others when separating due to the number of terminals
on the subbase.
2. Swing the thermostat out from the bottom.
3. Lift the thermostat up and off the subbase.
4. Place the rectangular opening in the subbase over the
equipment control wires protruding from the wall and,
using the subbase as a template, mark the location of
the two mounting holes (exact vertical mounting is
necessary only for appearance).
5. Use the supplied anchors and screws for mounting on
drywall or plaster; drill two 3/16" (5mm) diameter
holes at the marked locations; use a hammer to tap
the nylon anchors in flush to the wall surface and fasten subbase using the supplied screws. (Do not overtighten!)
6. Connect the wires from your system to the thermostat
terminals as shown in the wiring diagrams. Carefully
dress the wires so that any excess is pushed back
into the wall cavity or junction box. Ensure that the
wires are flush to the plastic subbase. The access
hole should be sealed or stuffed to prevent drafts
from affecting the thermostat.
