Refer to the equipment manufacturer’s instructions for specific system wiring information. After wiring, see INSTALLER MENU for proper thermostat configuration. Wiring table shown are for typical systems and describe the thermostat terminal functions.

Terminal Designations Terminal Function
R Power (24V)
O/B Changeover Terminal-Energized in Cool (O) or Heat (B) for Heat Pump or Damper Systems
Y Heat and Cool Mode 1st Stage Compressor
G Fan Relay
E* Auxiliary only Heat Mode (Emergency Heat)
C Common wire for 24V (optional with batteries)
W2* Heat Mode – 2nd stage
  • When both RC and RH wires are present, cut RC/RH jumper (see next page).
  • For heat pump systems, add a jumper wire to connect terminals Y and WEmerson-1F75H-21NP-Non-Programmable-Thermostat-fig-1


  • Do not exceed the specification ratings.
  • All wiring must conform to local and national electrical codes and ordinances.
  • This control is a precision instrument, and should be handled carefully. Rough handing or distorting components could cause the control to malfunction.


  • Do not use on circuits exceeding specified voltage. Higher voltage will damage control and could cause shock or fire hazard.
  • Do not short out terminals on gas valve or primary control to test. Short or incorrect wiring will burn out thermostat and could cause personal injury and/or property damage.

To prevent electrical shock and/or equipment damage, disconnect electrical power to system, at main fuse or circuit breaker box,until installation is complete.


  1. W2/E Jumper Wire
    This thermostat electrically connect the W2 and E terminals so that you do not need to do this with a jumper wire. If your system has separate W2 and E wires, clip the W2/E jumper located on the back of the thermostat. This will isolate both terminals so they can be used independently.
  2. O/B Terminal Switch
    The O/B switch on this thermostat is factory set to the O position. This will accommodate the majority of heat pump applications, which require the changeover relay to be energized in Cool. If the heat pump being installed requires a B terminal to energize the changeover relay in Heat, the O/B switch must be moved to the B position.


To access the INSTALLER’S MENU set the system switch to the OFF position and then press and hold the temperature Emerson-1F75C-11NP-Non-Programmable-Thermostat-fig-2 buttons for 3 seconds. The display will show item 30 in the table below. Use the temperature Emerson-1F75C-11NP-Non-Programmable-Thermostat-fig-2 buttons by pressing them simultaneously to navigate through menu items. Press Emerson-1F75C-11NP-Non-Programmable-Thermostat-fig-6orEmerson-1F75C-11NP-Non-Programmable-Thermostat-fig-7 to change a menu setting.

3.) Cooling System requires service or thermostat requires replacement

Verify thermostat and system wires are securely attached.Diagnostic: Set System Switch to Cool and lower setpoint below room temperature. Same procedures as diagnostic for “No Heat” condition except set the thermostat to Cool and lower the setpoint below the room temperature. There may be up to a five minute delay before the thermostat clicks in Cooling if the compressor lock-out option is selected in the installer

menu. (see INSTALLER MENU, item 50)

Heat, Cool or Fan Runs Constantly Possible short in wiring, thermostat, heat, cool or fan system Check each wire connection to verify they are not shorted or touching other wires. Try resetting the thermostat. If the condition persists contact your HVAC service person.
Thermostat Display & Thermometer Disagree The thermostat display requires adjustment Display can be adjusted +/-5°. See User Menu item 04
Symptom Possible Cause Corrective Action
Furnace (Air Conditioner) Cycles Too Fast or Slow (narrow or wide temperature swing) The location of the thermostat and/or the size of the Heating System may be influencing the cycle rate Digital thermostats provide precise control and cycle faster than older mechanical models. The system turns on and off more frequently but runs for a shorter time. If you would like to increase cycle time, choose SLO for slow cycle in the Installer menu. (Reference menu items 30 & 35) If an acceptable cycle rate is not achieved, contact your HVAC service person.
“Call for Service” icon appears on displayed 1.) Heating system is not able to heat the space to within 10 degrees of the setpoint within 2 hours2.) Cooling system is not able to cool the space to within 10 degrees of the setpoint within 2 hours

3.) If “–” is displayed for the Room Temperature, a replacement thermostat is needed

4.) None of the buttons operate on the thermostat

1.) See corrective action for “No Heat”
2.) See corrective action for “No Cool”3.) Replace thermostat
4.) Make sure keypad lockout is not turned on (denoted by  icon)

Resetting the Thermostat or Thermostat Settings
If the thermostat has good batteries, but has a blank display or does not respond to key presses, the thermostat should be reset by removing the batteries for 2 minutes. This reset will not change the menu settings. If the condition persists after reinstalling the batteries, replace the thermostat.
To conveniently reset only the user settings back to factory defaults, press the temperature Emerson-1F75C-11NP-Non-Programmable-Thermostat-fig-2 buttons and move the system switch from OFF to HEAT at the same time and hold until the display goes blank and resets.
