air handler fan/thermostat problem


Hi,

I have a ritetemp 8010 thermostat contented to a heat pump w/ aux heat.

Here is my problem: When I set the temp at 70 the fan and heat pump come on. When the temp hits 70, the heat pump goes off but the fan keeps running (on auto). If I manually move the set temp down, the fan will go off. Wiring problem?

Sounds like a problem with the thermostat. Maybe its time for a programmable model.

The Stat is only 3 years old. It seems to be wired correctly

The green wire connected to your thermostat controls the fan operation. Most likely you have a faulty thermostat. Replace and see if this correct the problem.
