wires and loosen the wires so they can be pushed  
back into the wall later.  
In new installations, run wiring (if necessary) to the  
thermostat location.  
Connect the wires to the terminals on the back of  
the thermostat. See Fig. 3 for internal schematic  
and typical hookup diagram.  
Remove thermostat cover by pulling outward on  
right edge of cover until it snaps free of the thermo-  
stat base. Carefully remove and discard the foam  
plastic shipping insert that protects the switch and  
bimetal assembly during shipping.  
Set the adjustable heat anticipator indicator to  
match the current draw of the primary heating con-  
trol (see Heat Anticipator Setting section).  
Push excess wire back through the hole and plug  
any opening with insulation to prevent drafts that  
can affect thermostat performance.  
Location  
Locate the thermostat about 5 ft (1.5m) above the floor  
on an inside wall in an area with good air circulation at  
average temperature.

The T8034C can be mounted directly on a wall or  
horizontal outlet box:  
Use the 200581 (beige) or 202895A (gray) Horizontal  
Wallplate to cover mounting marks from an old  
thermostat.  
Use the 19312A (beige) or 202689A (gray) Mounting  
Plate Assembly to mount on vertical outlet box or to  
cover wall marks where larger plate is needed.  
IMPORTANT  
An incorrectly leveled thermostat causes the  
temperature control to deviate from setpoint.  
The SUPER TRADELINE® T8034C includes the 200581  
Horizontal Wallplate. For other T8043C models, order the  
horizontal wallplate or mounting plate assembly.

power.  
Cool: Operates only cooling system.  
The Fan switch controls fan operation:  
Auto: For gas-or oil-fired systems; the fan operates in  
response to the thermostat in cooling and in  
response to the plenum fan control in heating. For  
electric heat or heat pump systems, the fan oper-  
ates in response to the thermostat in both heating  
and cooling.

NOTE: For best performance, the heat anticipator may  
require further adjustment. To lengthen burner-  
on time, move the indicator in the direction of  
the longer arrows but not more than one-half  
scale marking at one time. To shorten burner-on  
time, move the indicator in the opposite direc-  
tion.  
On: The fan runs continuously.  
To switch positions, use thumb and index finger to slide  
lever to desired position. Stop switch lever in detent  
directly over desired position. Stop switch lever in detent  
directly over desired function indicator mark for correct  
circuit operation.  
CHECKOUT  
Heat Anticipator Setting  
IMPORTANT  
The T8034C Thermostat has an adjustable heat  
anticipator and operates correctly only if the  
anticipator is adjusted to match the current draw  
of the primary control. Use this thermostat only  
on systems with current draw that falls within  
the range of the heat anticipator. Do not use this  
device on Powerpile® Systems (millivolt).  
CAUTION  
Equipment Damage Hazard.  
Heat anticipator can be damaged.  
Do not check operation by shorting across  
system control terminals.  
IMPORTANT  
To assure accurate temperature control, do not  
touch or breathe on bimetal or thermometer.

To check calibration:  
Heating  
1.  
Move the temperature setting lever to the lower  
end of the temperature scale. Place the System  
switch to the Off position. Wait at least five min-  
utes.  
With System switch set at Heat, and Fan switch set at  
Auto, move the temperature setting lever about 10°F  
(
6°C) above room temperature:  
Gas or oil-fired systems: heating should start; fan  
should start after a short delay.  
2
.
.
Remove the thermostat cover. Move the setting  
lever until the switch just makes contact. (The mer-  
cury in the switch rolls to the left end of the tube.)  
Replace the cover and wait five minutes for the  
cover and the thermostat to lose the heat it has  
gained from your hands. If the thermometer pointer  
and the setting lever indicator read approximately  
the same, no recalibration is needed.  
Central electric heat or heat pump systems: both  
heating and fan should start.  
Move the temperature setting lever about 10°F (6°C)  
below room temperature:  
Gas or oil-fired systems: heating should shut off and  
fan should shut off after a short delay.  
Electric heat or heat pump systems: heating and fan  
should shut off.  
3
If recalibration appears necessary:  
1.  
Place the temperature setting lever at the same  
setting as the thermometer. Remove the cover by  
pulling out on the right edge of the cover until it  
snaps free of the thermostat base.  
Cooling  
CAUTION  
Air conditioning equipment (compressor) can  
be damaged.  
Do not operate cooling when outdoor  
temperature is below 50°F (10°C). Refer to  
manufacturer’s recommendations.  
2. Insert the 104994A Calibration Wrench (ordered  
separately) onto the hex nut under the coil. (See  
Fig. 4.) Holding the setting lever so it does not  
move, turn the wrench clockwise until the mercury  
rolls to the right end of the tube. Remove the  
wrench and replace the cover.  
Equipment Damage Hazard.  
IMPORTANT  
To assure accurate temperature control, do not  
touch or breathe on bimetal or thermometer.  
IMPORTANT  
To prevent compressor short cycling, some  
manufacturer’s equipment includes a minimum-  
off timer to provide a five-minute time delay  
from when the thermostat last turned off the  
compressor, or from when the system first  
received power. This delay protects the com-  
pressor.

.
.
.
Move the setting lever to a lower setting. Wait at  
least five minutes for the temperature to stabilize.  
Slowly move the setting lever until it reads the  
same as the thermometer.  
Remove the cover. Holding the setting lever so it  
does not move, reinsert the wrench and carefully  
turn it counterclockwise just until the mercury rolls  
to the left end of the tube but no farther.  
WIth the System switch set at Cool and the Fan switch  
set to Auto, move the temperature setting lever about  
0°F (6°C) below room temperature. Cooling and fan  
should start (see Important above). Move the  
temperature setting lever about 10°F (6°C) above room  
temperature. Cooling and fan should shut off.  
6.  
7.  
8.  
Recheck the calibration. Set the thermostat Sys-  
tem switch for the desired operation.  
1
Adjust the temperature setting lever so the mercury  
bulb is in position as shown in Fig. 4.  
Carefully replace the thermostat cover.  
Fan  
With the System switch set to Off and the Fan switch set  
to On, the fan should run continuously. Move the Fan  
switch to Auto. In gas- or oil-fired systems, fan operation  
is controlled by the plenum fan control in heating and by  
the thermostat in cooling. In central electric heat and heat  
pump systems, fan operation is controlled by the  
thermostat in both heating and cooling.
