Do you have a amp meter? Or if not .5 should be close. Are you sure it is cycling on the T-stat? Did you jump it and then it stayed running?

I got a digital and standered meter.My thermo is a lux T10-1141sa now i put my digital meter on it.Set meter to ac it showed 38.1 on the wires.Not sure if that was the right way or not.

Not voltage Amprage. Can your meter clamp around a wire?

harley75 01-15-2009 01:33 PM

no mine is a multimeter not the clamp kind

The .5 is just a guess unless you can check it. Again are you sure it is short cycling on the stat? Is this a new stat or a new problem with a old stat.

harley75 01-15-2009 01:50 PM

it's a new stat didn't seem to run long to heat house then shut off a few seconds later back on/off/on /off a few seconds in between

JohnH1 01-15-2009 02:00 PM

I would start with .5 to .7 setting the higher the number the longer the run cycle

harley75 01-15-2009 02:30 PM

I found the tag it was hiding it is 3.5-4.5

harley75 01-15-2009 03:29 PM

i found a some info i don't know how true it is but is says if you valve calls for 3.5-4.5 set it at 4 one more then it draws at 3.5 to run it longer and keep it off longer.

My question is now the furance say 3.5-4.5 on the sticker the tag on the gas valve says 3.5-.4 and the ignitor is a honeywell 24v.So do i go by the valve tag only

Your not drawing that kind of amperage on the thermostat.
Don't know what tag your reading, but its not the right one.

Even a Taco power head, only draws 1.2 amps.
