Check Your Humidistat

First, you would want to check the humidistat, if it is set to the away setting the thermostat may appear blank until it reaches the level set on the humidistat. Set this to the home setting and the unit should work correctly.

Check The Batteries

If this doesn’t fix your problem, you would need to check the batteries in the unit. First, remove the cover usually it will just pull straight off of the wall then you can see the inside where the batteries are and what kind you will need to replace them. Please, be careful not to touch any of the components inside the unit, all of its these points need to be aligned and make proper contact inside and not get bent.

Very carefully align the cover and then snap it back on. Once the cover is back on, you should see it start working again.
