I have a totaline thermostat and I have noticed that the temp display keps indicating an increase in inside temp; however the ac unit is running on my heat pump. The temp is set for 72 but in the last few hours the internal temp has increasing been rising, now up to 78 degrees...any thought

Turn the t-stat off. Open it so where you see the winding connections. Unscrew the red connection and don't let it touch anything for about 3 minutes and put it back turn the tstat back on to auto and cool that will reset the thermostat oh and check the batteries

If you have a thermometer that measures down to 0 to 20 degrees, take the temp at the closes vent to the air handler. Should be around 40 degrees. If you unhook the Y or C from the thermostat and turn the air handler back on, does it start running again?

Compare the thermostat readings to another thermometer. If they read the same then the AC running constantly with the house getting warmer isn't a thermostat issue.

Explain why you have to take the red t-stat wire off of the subase when the stat is off ? when Just moving it to the off position will break the 24 v.

So tstat will reset and work properly. I have done this before and it works.everytime you want to reset tstat you can do this.
You have posted the same thing over and over. It is not a thermostat issue. Please refrain from copying and pasting info on multiple threads, which does nothing to help the original poster. It only confuses them.
