Do not open mercury cells. If a cell becomes damaged, do not
touch any spilled mercury. Wearing nonabsorbent gloves, take
up the spilled mercury and place into a container which can be

CHECK THERMOSTAT OPERATION
If at any time during testing your system does not operate
properly, contact a qualified service person.
If you have a single-stage heat pump system, OR your system
uses central electric heat, where the blower is energized by a
separate circuit through the fan relay (meaning that the fan
turns on immediately on call for heat), then the switch on the
thermostat base must be moved to the “ELECTRIC” position
(see fig 1). If the thermostat is energizing electric heat sequenc-
ers, the switch MUST remain in the “GAS” position.
Turn on power to the system.
If your system does not have a G terminal connection, skip to

3. Place base over hole in wall and mark mounting hole
locations on wall using base as a template.
4. Move base out of the way. Drill mounting holes.
5. Fasten base loosely to wall, as shown in fig. 1, using two
mounting screws. Place a level against bottom of base,
adjust until level, and then tighten screws. (Leveling is for
appearance only and will not affect thermostat operation.) If
you are using existing mounting holes, or if holes drilled are
too large and do not allow you to tighten base snugly, use
plastic screw anchors to secure subbase.
outdoor temperature is below 50°F, DO NOT operate
the cooling system.
