Wondering how to remove honeywell cover from the wall to change batteries or to inspect the wiring? It’s easy although this can depend on the model you have.
But for most older thermostats that use batteries, you are going to need to hold and pull the thermostat from the button up.
The following are the steps you need to follow to remove your honeywell display from the wall.
Step 1: Turn off the thermostat
Before you start working on your thermostat, make sure to turn it off. This will prevent any electrical accidents and ensure that you can work safely.
Step 2: Remove the faceplate
You need to remove the faceplate of the thermostat. The faceplate is typically held in place by clips.
Use a flat screwdriver to gently pry the faceplate away from the wall. You will need to pull the thermostat from the bottom-up and pry screwdriver in between simultaneously.
Why is it hard to remove a honeywell thermostat cover from the wall plate?
The thermostat display doesn’t have screws on it too attached to the base. It is designed to be held by clips and attached by the pins to the wall plate. The pins firmly embed to the contacts and so it’s very hard to pull off the thermostat directly from the wall.
