heil t-stat issue

Hey great site. I have a heil ultimate III furnace in my house I bought 8 Months ago. When i moved in I put in a Noma digital 5+2 tstat, works great. Last week got a noma digital 7 day tstat, hooked it up and the furnace just cycles the draft motor on and off in about 15 sec intervals. I took it back got a new one, same thing. The old one still works fine. I am an automotive tech so I started trying to figure out what was happening. An ohm meter shows both tstat's the same. accidently (sort of) I grabbed the two wires (one in each hand) and the furnace did the cycle thing. The 7 day works fine when calling for heat, but acts up when off. Any ideas? Thanks in advance

Bleeding voltage back.

Need an isolating relay.

Just slow, not stupid.

Hey Thanks. Got thinking about what you said and remember seeing an automoyive relay with a capacitor or resistor in it to stop arcing of the contacts. So I took the stat apart and sure enough there was a cap and resistor linking the two contacts together, so I cut the resistor. Works great now Thanks again
