Congratulations on your purchase of a Honeywell energy saving thermostat. The Honeywell  
name is your assurance of accurate control and reliable operation for years to come.  
During heating and cooling, this thermostat will automatically lower and raise the temperature  
in your home one or more times every 24 hours. This allows you to significantly lower your fuel  
costs, while awakening (or returning home) to a comfortable temperature.  
Read this manual to learn how to use your new thermostat.

Three red and three blue program pins are  
included with your thermostat. The red pins  
start the high-temperature period; the blue pins  
start the low-temperature period. A heating  
program was preprogrammed. A red pin is  
inserted at 6:00 AM for high temperature

To remove a pin, press against program  
dial and pull the pin straight out. DO NOT  
attempt to change a pin if it is engaged with  
the program index wheel.  
On heating-cooling systems, you must  
remove the program pins from the heating  
program to set new times for your cooling  
program. Write down your colors and time  
for reprogramming at the next heating  
season. Also, you may want to change the  
temperature setting lever positions.

Servicing The Thermostat  
If the set point lever and the thermometer  
reading do not agree, follow the procedure on  
the next page.  
Cycle Rate Adjustment  
The equipment should cycle on and off just  
enough to keep the room temperature close to  
the temperature lever settings.  
If the thermostat seems to cycle the heating  
system too fast or too slow, adjust the cycle  
rate by moving the anticipator setting lever one  
indicator mark at a time (Fig. 6). Observe the  
heating system operation after each adjust-  
ment.
