Question about Hunter Fan Company 5/1/1 Programmable Thermostat

Auto recovery mode raises the temperature above

Hunter 44860 running Heat Pump w/ auxillery heat: Auto recovery mode raises the temperature above the set heat temp. I think it is recovering to the set cool temp. After recovery it maintains the proper temperature. The problem is it's extra hot at the start time of the programmed period and not saving energy.

Hummm... how far is your Thermostat from your heater? I am reading your extensive manual but there is no mention of that distance? There was a early mention of batteries? Are yours fresh?

Is this a 'new' problem? Has it worked properly before?

Then there is this from the manual:

The installer can set SYSTEM functions once the thermostat is installed. The
default settings are shown in bold in the following list. Options are listed inside the
parentheses. Example: the default SYSTEM TYPE is CONVENTIONAL with (HEAT PUMP) as a second option. See pages 28-29 to change these settings.

Have you tried resetting your Thermostat?? Sometimes these basic 'onboard' computers get confused... especially true with lots of 'options'...

It's a little hassle to get a DIGITAL copy of your manual (I am not a Robot ~ etc) ~ but here it is:

How do I set my hunter thermostat so when the heat pump comes on, how to set so the thermostat and heat strips from the heat pump sinc with each other. The model number is 44860


call a service tech, this sounds complicated. To avoid using too much energy or burning down your life savings in heating bills, a certain sequence should be followed when the thermostat operates. The actual sequence will differ depending on what equipment you have available to control, as well as your location and heating and cooling loads. The money you could save by having it done right the first time will quickly pay for a service call, then keep on saving you money after that.

Fan will not come on when it's set in auto mode


If your thermostat is being used with an electric heating system and the fan does not start in heating mode on auto; remove the thermostat from the subcase on the wall and check for a switch on the back of the thermostat. A lot of electronic thermostats have a switch on the back that says electric/heat pump and gas/oil. If you have electric heat or heat pump you need to switch it to this side. Usually this is set at the factory for gas/ oil. Gas/oil furnaces have built in means of bringing on the fan and electric/ heat pumps are brought on by the thermostat.

"Hunter" says it all. Throw it out and buy a honeywell, robertshaw, or a white-rodgers. Hunter stats are notorious in the business as being problematic.

44860 thermostat won't activate in heat mode


I had the same set and problem. I had a RC wire which is the power to the AC. But didn't have an RH wire which is the power for the heat. To fix this just use the jumper wire and insert it in with the RC wire and hook it up to the RH. Fixed my problem.

Error Message RE CO on Indiglo


Auto recovery – allows heating and cooling systems
to gradually recover from an energy-saving setpoint
temperature to a comfort setpoint temperature. Auto recovery
calculates the time needed to adjust the temperature to
the next program setting. When the thermostat is in Auto
Recovery mode, the display will flash alternating messages of
RECO and the time. Auto Recovery can be disabled by sliding
the recovery switch on the back of the circuit board to the
disable position.
(Auto Recovery will not operate if Permanent or Temporary holds
are on.)
Press Hold/Return during the Auto Recovery process to
manually cancel the recovery.
