I am a new homeowner. I bought my house in February and never messed with the thermostat because my home was comfortable for the winter.
Here we are now in the summer in Virginia and I am unable to adjust my thermostat how I would like. Apparently it is password protected. I guess the previous owner installed this and then likely set a password to prevent his kids from messing with it or something. I don't know. What I know is that I am unable to adjust it down to where I want it. He has the cooling mode set to 78 degrees. I want to drop it down further. I have read that there is a way to access the installer functions and reprogram the parameters. The problem is that when I access the installer options it asks me for a password that I do not have!
How can I bypass or reset this password on my Johnson Controls T601DFH-4+PIR
Please help me. I do not want to replace my thermostat over a password issue nor can I justify hiring a HVAC person to come out just to adjust the temperature in my house.
