Whether programming your thermostat for the very first time or changing its back-up batteries or trouble-shooting key problems… Gillece will teach you what you need to know. And, we’ll also throw in some energy-saving, money-saving tips!

Select the system setting:
Press the SYSTEM button to select:

• Off – Heating and cooling systems are off.

Here’s where some money-saving tips come in…you can save money by programming your thermostat system for maximum savings! You can program four different time periods each day, including different settings for weekdays and weekends.

• Wake – Set to the time you awaken and the temperature you during the morning, until you leave for the day.
• Leave – Set to the time you leave home and the temperature you want while you are away. (good time of day for energy savings!)
• Return – Set to the time you return home and the temperature you want during the evening, until bedtime.
• Sleep – Set to the time you go to bed and the temperature you want overnight. (also, good time for energy savings!)

Energy-saving settings for maximum cost savings:
• “Use the thermostat’s pre-set energy-savings program temperature settings for maximum value.”
• Note: you can also cancel Leave and Return periods over the weekends – Saturdays and Sundays, that is.

To adjust programmed schedules:
• Press SETCLOCK/DAY/SCHEDULE, then SET SCHEDULE.
• Press the up arrow or down arrow to set your weekday Wake time (Monday-Friday), then press NEXT.
• Press the up arrow or down arrow to set the temperature for this time period, then press NEXT.
• Set time and temperature for the next time period (Leave). Repeat steps 2 and 3 for each weekday time period.
• Press NEXT to set weekend time periods (Saturday-Sunday), then press DONE to save and exit.

Battery Replacement:
• Batteries provide optional back-up power if your thermostat was wired to run on AC power when installed.
• Press and pull the battery compartment to remove battery holder.
• Insert fresh AA alkaline batteries, then reinstall battery holder.

TROUBLE-SHOOTING:

If Your Display is Blank:
• Check circuit breaker and reset if necessary.
• Make sure power switch at heating and cooling system is on.
• Make sure furnace door is closed securely.
• If thermostat is battery powered, be sure batteries are correctly installed.

To Restore Default Settings:
1. Press SET CLOCK/DAY/SCHDULE.
2. Press SET SCHEDULE.
3. Press DONE and NEXT at the same time for 5 seconds.

If your temperature settings are not changing as they should, make sure heating and cooling temperatures are set to acceptable ranges.

If your heating or cooling system does not respond, press SYSTEM button to set system to Heat or Cool (whichever the problem). Make sure the temperature is set higher than the inside temperature.

“Cool On” or “Heat On” is flashing means that your compressor protection feature is engaged. Wait 5 minutes for the system to restart safely, without damage to the compressor.

Hopefully by now, you can really see how simple it is to set up, program and trouble-shoot your thermostat for the needs of your family in your home.  Other things your thermostat can do are temporarily override your programmed schedule… in other words, temporarily adjust the temperature setting for the current time period, as well as create a permanent override.

And, if your problem is not solved by these simple instructions, be sure to “Trust Your Home to the Experts, and Call Gillece!”
