Operation

On a 2-heat thermostat, the two stages of heat make sequentially as the temperature drops. Make refers to the mercury switch initiating a call for heat or cool.
There are about 2° F [1° C] between stages so that the second stage makes only when the first stage cannot handle the load. This is the interstage differential.

Recycling Notice 
This control contains mercury in a sealed tube. Do not place control in the trash at the end of its useful life.
If this control is replacing a control that contains mercury in a sealed tube, do not place your old control in the trash. Contact your local waste management authority for instructions regarding recycling and the proper disposal of this control, or of an old control containing mercury in a sealed tube. If you have questions, call Honeywell at 1-800-468-1502.

Installation

WHEN INSTALLING THIS PRODUCT…

  1. Read these instructions carefully. Failure to fol-low them could damage the product or cause a hazard-ous condition.
  2. Check the ratings given in the instructions and on the product to make sure the product is suitable for your application.
  3. Installer must be a trained, experienced service technician.
  4. After installation is complete, check out product operation as provided in these instructions.

CAUTION

  1. Disconnect power supply to prevent electrical shock or equipment damage.
  2. To prevent interference with the thermostat linkage, keep wire length to a minimum and run wires as close as possible to the subbase.
  3. Do not overtighten thermostat captive mount-ing screws, because damage to subbase threads can result.
  4. Do not short across terminals of systems con-trols. This can burn out the thermostat heat anticipator.

IMPORTANT: Thermostats are calibrated at the factory by using subbases mounted at true level. Inaccurate sub-base leveling will cause thermostat control deviation.

LOCATION

Locate the subbase about 5 ft [1.5 m] above the floor in an area with good air circulation at average temperature.
Do not mount the subbase where the thermostat may be affected by:

  • drafts or dead spots behind doors and in corners.
  • hot or cold air from ducts.
  • radiant heat from sun, appliances or fireplace.
  • concealed pipes and chimneys.
  • unheated (uncooled) areas such as an outside wall behind the thermostat.

MOUNTING THE SUBBASE
The thermostat subbase can be mounted on a horizontal outlet box or directly on the wall.

  1. To mount on a horizontal outlet box, install the sub-base on the outlet box as shown in Fig. 1.Honeywell-T874A-Zone-Thermostat-1
    For a wall installation, hold the subbase in position and mark holes for the anchors (Fig. 2). Obtain wall anchors locally. Take care that the wires do not fall back into the wall opening. Set aside subbase. Drill two 3/16 in. [4.8 mm] holes and gently tap anchors into the holes until flush with the wall.Honeywell-T874A-Zone-Thermostat-2
  2. Pull electrical wires through the cover plate (if used) and subbase cable opening (Fig. 3). See Wiring the Sub-base section before pulling any wires.Honeywell-T874A-Zone-Thermostat-3IMPORTANT: Use 18 gauge, color-coded thermostat cable for proper wiring.
  3. Secure the subbase with the screws provided. Do not fully tighten the subbase screws.
  4. Level the subbase using a spirit level, as shown in Fig. 3, and firmly tighten the subbase mounting screws. The subbase mounting holes allow minor out-of-level adjustments.
    IMPORTANT: An incorrectly leveled subbase will cause the temperature control to deviate from set point.

WIRING THE SUBBASE

All wiring must comply with local electrical codes and ordinances. Follow equipment manufacturer wiring instructions when available. To wire subbase:

  1. Connect wires to the subbase terminals. Refer to Figs. 6-10 for wiring diagrams of typical zone systems. A letter code is located near each subbase terminal for identi-fication. The terminal barrier permits straight or conven-tional wraparound wiring connection (Fig. 4).Honeywell-T874A-Zone-Thermostat-4
  2. Some Q674 Subbases have RC and RH terminals for isolated heating and cooling transformers. For zoning systems, jumper RC and RH terminals as shown in Fig. 5 and wire as single R terminal.Honeywell-T874A-Zone-Thermostat-5
  3. Firmly tighten each terminal screw.
  4. Fit wires as close as possible to the subbase. Push excess wire back into hole.
  5. Plug the hole with nonflammable insulation to pre-vent drafts from affecting the thermostat.

MOUNTING THE THERMOSTAT

  1. Remove the thermostat cover by pulling the bottom edge of the cover outward away from the base until it snaps free from the cover clip.
    NOTE: The cover is hinged at the top and is removed by pulling out at the bottom.
  2. Carefully remove and discard the polystyrene packing insert that protects the mercury switches during shipment.
  3. Turn over the thermostat base and note the spring fingers that engage the subbase contacts. Make sure the spring fingers are not bent flat, preventing proper electri-cal contact with the subbase.
    Set the heat anticipator indicator(s) to 0.1A for proper system operation (Fig. 11).
  4. Note the two tabs on the top inside edge of the thermostat base. The tabs fit into the corresponding slots on the top of the subbase. Mount the thermostat on the subbase. See Fig. 12.
  5. Align the two captive mounting screws in the thermo-stat base with the posts on the subbase (Fig. 12). Tighten both screws. Do not overtighten the screws or damage to the subbase posts can result.

HEATING

NOTE: If a plenum fan control is used in the heating system, there will be a short delay on a call for heat to allow the furnace to heat the plenum. The fan starts immediately in electric heat systems. Allow 30 seconds for the damper to open or close completely.
Make sure all zone thermostats are set as instructed in the Heating column in Table 5. Check each zone thermo-stat as follows:

  1. If thermostat has a fan switch, set it to ON. See Fig. 13. After 30 seconds, place your hand in front of an air register in that zone to check for air flow at the register.
  2. Reset fan switch, if provided, to AUTO. After 30 seconds, make sure air flow at register has stopped.
  3. Move heating set point lever on zone thermostat 10° F [6° C] above room temperature to call for heat.
  4. After 30 seconds (longer, if necessary, for time delay on plenum fan control), check for warm air at the register.
  5. Move heating set point lever on the zone thermostat 10° F [6° C] below room temperature to end a call for heat. After 30 seconds (longer, if necessary, for time delay on plenum fan control or control panel), check that air flow at the register has stopped.
  6. Repeat steps 1-5 for each zone thermostat.

COOLING

CAUTION Do not operate cooling equipment if outdoor temperature is below 50° F [10° C]. Refer to manufacturer recommendations. Make sure all zone thermostats are set as instructed in the Cooling column in Table 5. Check each zone thermo-stat as follows:

  1. Move cooling set point lever on the zone thermostat 10° F [6° C] below room temperature to call for cooling.
  2. After 30 seconds, place your hand in front of an air register in that zone to check for cool air at the register.
  3. Move the cooling set point lever on the zone thermostat 10° F [6° C] above room temperature to end the call for cooling. After 30 seconds (longer, if necessary, for time delay on control panel), check that air flow at the register has stopped.
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 for each zone thermostat.
    When system checkout is complete, return all thermo-stats to the desired settings for normal system operation.

Calibration

THERMOSTAT
T874 thermostats are accurately calibrated at the factory. They do not have provision for field calibration.

THERMOMETER
The thermometer in your thermostat has been accu-rately calibrated at the factory. The thermometer should only need adjustment if it has been dropped or shifted due to mishandling.
If the set point lever and the thermometer reading do not agree:

  1. Remove the thermostat cover by pulling up from the bottom of cover until it clears the mounting slots.
  2. Set the thermostat cover on a table near an accurate thermometer.
  3. Allow ten minutes for the cover thermometer to sense the area temperature; compare the readings. Be care-ful not to touch the thermometer or breathe on it.
  4. If the readings are the same, replace the cover and put the system into operation.
  5. If the readings are different, insert a small screwdriver in the thermometer slot (Fig. 14) and turn it until the thermometers have the same reading.
  6. Replace the thermostat cover and put the system into operation.
    NOTE: Hand heat will offset the thermometer reading. After making each adjustment, wait ten minutes for the thermometer to stabilize before comparing.Honeywell-T874A-Zone-Thermostat-14
