The screen just scrolls through unreadable screens. The first failure, the heat came one and heated the house until I shut the furnace down. It was like 80 in the house. The second time, the heat didn't come on, the last time, I just happened to walk by the thermostat and it was blank. The best I can tell, the thermostat has 2 wires going to a transformer and 2 going to some type of relay that then one wire comes back hand hook to the RED wire coming from the thermostat and then connects to the R terminal. I'm hesitant to touch anything because I don't want to have to pay for a replacement. Thanks for the quick reply.
