How do you remove the temporary hold on a Honeywell thermostat?

To remove the temporary hold on a Honeywell thermostat, follow these steps:
1. Locate the thermostat: Identify the Honeywell thermostat that you want to remove the temporary hold from. It is typically mounted on a wall in your home or office.
2. Access the thermostat controls: Depending on the model, you may need to open a small door or remove a cover to access the thermostat controls. This may require gently pulling or sliding the cover.
3. Enter the programming mode: Once you have access to the controls, look for a button labeled "Program" or "Schedule" on the thermostat. Press this button to enter the programming mode. On some models, you may need to press and hold the button for a few seconds to access the programming menu.
4. Navigate to the current temperature setting: Use the up and down arrows or other navigation buttons on the thermostat to scroll through the programming options and locate the current temperature setting.
5. Remove the temporary hold: Once you have found the current temperature setting, you should see an indicator that shows a temporary hold or override. This indicator may be a flame symbol or a clock symbol with a plus or minus sign. Press the appropriate button or use the arrows to remove the temporary hold.
6. Confirm the changes: After removing the temporary hold, navigate to the "Save" or "Confirm" button on the thermostat. Press this button to save your changes and exit the programming mode.
7. Observe the thermostat: Once you have completed the steps, the thermostat should return to its normal operation. It will resume following the programmed schedule or the set temperature depending on your thermostat settings.
It's important to note that the specific steps may vary depending on the model and features of your Honeywell thermostat. If you encounter any difficulties or are unsure about the process, consult the user manual for your particular thermostat model. The manual will provide detailed instructions specific to your thermostat model, including how to remove a temporary hold.

If you no longer have the user manual, you can visit the Honeywell website and search for your thermostat model to find a digital copy of the manual or contact Honeywell customer support for assistance.
