How hard is it to change a thermostat please.?

We have a Honeywell Thermostat in our house, combination cooling and heat, looks like it has gone out as we have redid the pilot light and the cool will not come on,nor the heat, therefore, we think it is the thermostat, is it very hard to change, it looks like you just unscrew it and disconnect the wires and reconnect a new one in the same place. It is only 3 yrs. old, we also changed the batteries with no luck,it doesn't look like it would be too hard, a little scary for someone who has never done it. Any help appreciated, just daughter and mom living here, no expert in sight. Thanks much. How hard is it to change a thermostat please.?

The big question is why did the pilot light go out in the first place.

It has nothing to do with the thermostat. The local utilities will

come to your home and check it out for you, most likely, it will

be free of charge. Just speak with a representative when you call

them. Are you sure the pilot light is still lit ? Don't wait till you are

freezing or your pipes freeze.

Good luck to you..How hard is it to change a thermostat please.?
Yep, its easy. They come with instructions. I got a little scared because the wires weren't EXACTLY the same color shades, so I called their help line and they were very nice and talked me through the whole thing. You can do it!
You are right about removing and replacing the wires. That is all there is to it. They are low voltage so you don't have to worry about being shocked. New ones come with instructions. Take your time and you will be fine. Good luck.
wrong forum, but the new one will come with a wiring diagram.

It is simple
