Emerson 250-5000 Thermostat Troubleshooting

ProblemCauseSolution
The maintenance wrench icon appears in the Energy Meter display.There is a problem with the inputs to the Energy Meter.
The display is blank after applying control power to the meter.The meter is not receiving adequate power.Verify that the meter control power is receiving the required voltage. Verify that the heart icon is blinking. Check the fuse.
The data displayed is inaccurate.Incorrect setup valuesVerify the values entered for Energy Meter setup parameters (CT and P I ratings, system type, etc.).
Incorrect voltage inputsCheck Energy Meter voltage input terminals to verify adequate voltage.
Energy Meter is wired improperly.Check all CTs and P i's to verity correct connection to the same service, PT polarity, and adequate powering.
Cannot communicate with Energy Meter from a remote personal computer.Energy Meter address is incorrect.Verify that the meter is correctly addressed.
Energy Meter baud rate is incorrect.Verify that the baud rate of the meter matches that of all other devices on its communications link.
Communications lines are improperly connected.Verify the Energy Meter communications connections
Verify the terminating resistors are properly installed on both ends of a chain of units. UniLs in the middle of a chain should not have a terminator. Verify the shield ground is connected between all units.

Emerson 1E78 Thermostat Troubleshooting

SymptomPossible CauseCorrective Action
No Heat/No Cool/No Fan (common problems)1. Blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.Replace fuse or reset breaker.
2. Furnace power switch to OFF.Turn switch to ON.
3. Furnace blower compartment door or panel loose or not properly installed.Replace door panel in proper position to engage safety interlock or door switch.
No Heat1. Pilot light not lit.Re-light pilot.
2. SYSTEM Switch not set to HEAT.Set SYSTEM Switch to HEAT and raise setpoint temperature above room temperature.
3. Loose connection to thermostat or system.Verify thermostat and system wires are securely attached.
4. Furnace Lock-Out Condition. Heat may also be intermittent.Many furnaces have safety devices that shut down when a lock-out condition occurs. If the heat works intermittently contact the furnace manufacturer or local service person for assistance.
5. Heating system requires service or thermostat requires replacement.Diagnostic: Set SYSTEM Switch to HEAT and raise the setpoint above room temperature. Within a few seconds the thermostat should make a soft click sound. This sound usually indicates the thermostat is operating properly. If the thermostat does not click, try the reset operation listed above. If the thermostat does not click after being reset contact your heating and cooling service person or place of purchase for a replacement. If the thermostat clicks, contact the furnace manufacturer or a service person to verify the heating is operating correctly.
No Cool1. SYSTEM Switch not set to COOL.Set SYSTEM Switch to COOL and lower setpoint temperature below room temperature.
2. Loose connection to thermostat or system.Verify thermostat and system wires are securely attached.
3. Cooling system requires service or thermostat requires replacement.Same procedure 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.
Heat, Cool or Fan Runs Constantly.1. Possible short in wiring.Check each wire connection to verify they are not shorted or touching together. No bare wire should stick out from under terminal screws. Try resetting the thermostat as described above. If the condition persists the manufacturer of your system or service person can instruct you on how to test the Heat/Cool system for correct operation. If the system operates correctly, replace the thermostat.
2. Possible short in thermostat.
3. Possible short in heat/cool/fan system.
4. FAN Switch set to Fan ON.
Furnace Cycles Too Fast or Too Slow (narrow or wide temperature swing)1. The location of the thermostat and/or the size of the Heating System may be influencing the cycle rate.Digital thermostats normally provide precise temperature control and may cycle faster than some older mechanical models. A faster cycle rate means the unit turns on and off more frequently but runs for a shorter time so there is no increase in energy use. If you would like to increase the cycle time, clip Jumper W-905 as mentioned in the instructions for Hydronic Heating Systems. It is not possible to shorten the cycle time. If an acceptable cycle rate is not achieved as received or by clipping W-905 contact a local service person for additional suggestions.
Cooling Cycles Too Fast or Too Slow (narrow or wide temperature swing)1. The location of the thermostat and the size of the Cooling System can influence the cycle rate.The cycle rate for cooling is fixed and can not be adjusted. Contact a local service person for suggestions.
Thermostat Setting and Thermostat Thermometer Disagree1. Thermostat thermometer setting requires adjustment.The thermometer can be adjusted +/- 3 degrees.
Blank Display and/or Keypad Not Responding1. Voltage spike or static discharge.Replace batteries and check heat/cool system for proper operation
2. Battery change required.

Emerson Delmarva Power Thermostat Troubleshooting

Problem Possible CauseCorrective Action
Multi-stage Air Conditioner/Heat Pump Second, Third, and/or Fourth Stage Won't Come OnYour thermostat is designed to determine the optimum time to activate the second stage. Simply raising the temperature in heating or lowering it in cooling will not always force the thermostat to bring the second stage on quickly. There is a time delay from 0-30 minutes depending on the performance of the first stage of the system.Wait for the second, third, and/or fourth stage to come on.
No CoolSystem switch not set to COOL.Press SYSTEM button to select COOL and press © to lower the temperature setpoint below room temperature.
Outdoor unit disconnect or breaker tripped.Verify the outdoor unit disconnect or breaker has not been tripped.
Cooling system requires service or thermostat requires replacement.To diagnose this condition: Press SYSTEM button to select COOL and press © to lower the temperature setpoint below room temperature. Within a few seconds the thermostat should make a soft click sound. This sound usually indicates the thermostat is operating properly.
If the thermostat does not click after being reset, contact your installing contractor for a replacement thermostat. If the thermostat clicks, contact the furnace manufacturer or HVAC contractor for a service visit to verify the cooling is operating correctly.
No HeatPilot light not lit.If it will not stay lit, call for service from your HVAC contractor.
System switch not set to HEAT.Press the thermostat's SYSTEM button one or more times to select HEAT and press to raise the temperature setpoint above room temperature.
Furnace Lock-Out Condition. Heat may also be intermittent.Many furnaces have safety devices that shut down when a lock-out condition occurs. If the heat works intermittently, contact the furnace manufacturer or your HVAC contractor for assistance.
