RS5110 Replaces Old Thermostat

I purchased this thermostat to control a gas (propane) 38,000 btu stove. Our old thermostat Robert Shaw model 9600 failed after 16 years. Model RS5110 was recommended by Robert Shaw technical support to replace it.

The installation instructions refer to a wire diagram for a 24 volt power supply. I only wanted to use the thermostat's 2 AA batteries for power, not covered by the installation instructions. So, I talked to technical support again. For the 2 wires coming from the stove: wires touch & Stove ON; wires don't touch & Stove OFF . The RS5110 controls the stove ON or OFF by hooking the 2 wires to terminals R/RH and W1.

The 1st RS5110 I ordered from Supply House, didn't work; but the 2nd did. The user guide was weak but I figured out how to program the thermostat.
Program 6AM @ 70 degrees F
***RS5110 achieves 70 @ 6 am heat ON about 5 am
***old device heat ON @ 6 am and 70 @ about 7am.
In general, the RS5110 is well thought out and working flawlessly

Because the 1st thermostat failed and the installation/user guide were weak I graded it down, but because the device works cleverly and flawlessly in our use of a little over a month I rank it at 4 stars. I'm grateful finding a modern thermostat for our 16 year old stove.

This thermostat has many nice features. It comes with a 5 year warranty & is made by Robertshaw. One would think it would perform accurately, but it doesn't. Example: I had the swing temp set at 1/2 degree. Well in cooling mode it seemed to work fine. When the stat called for cooling-it would come on & run for about 6 minutes before turning off. After all how long would it take to cool 1/2 degree? Well, when it was time for the heating season & the stat called for heat-it came on & was still running 13 minutes later before I couldn't take the overly warm conditions in my house & just shut off the system. It really shouldn't take 13 minutes or longer to heat the house a 1/2 degree. So I put on my HONEYWELL PRO T8775C DIGITAL ROUND THERMOSTAT & IT RUNS GREAT! CYCLES THE HEAT IN ABOUT 5 MINUTES. MUCH MORE COMFORTABLE. STICK WITH HONEYWELL-MUCH MORE RELIABLE!

For the price, this is one of the best value thermostats available. Easy to install, easy to program, and accurate. The auto changeover feature is the most important part to keep everyone comfortable and prevent unnecessary adjustment and button pressing. It just works, and works well, Highly recommended.

Set up was not as easy as I thought. I bought this to replace the one I had. I thought the old one I had was not working but it was not the thermostat but low in Freon in the system. So I had it installation for a day and went back to old one. Installation of new one was easy.

This thermostat has every feature you could want for making comfort settings just as you want them. For this reason, setup is complex, but the instructions are complete. This thermostat has more features than what you can purchase in big box stores and at a considerably lower price. Great value.

I use the robertshaw 5110 for many different applications. It is the only stat I carry on my service vehicle. I can use it in most situations. It is reliable and user friendly. Compared to some of the other value level stats it is a great choice and can compete with much more expensive options

Comments about Digital 5-2 Day Programmable Thermostat Heat Pump/Single Stage (1 Heat/1 Cool):

Had previously purchased 2 of 1 type and 1 of another type Honeywell thermostats, but they didn't work well with our radiant floors. The system would come on for 10 minutes and then shut off. With 3 different zones the system kept going on and off keeping us awake at night. The Honeywell units tried to keep the temperature within +/- 1 degree but you couldn't adjust the swing/differential temperature. Was on the phone with their India support several times and found that none of their thermostats had this important adjustment. The RobertShaw units can adjust swing/differential temperature in 1/2 degree steps up to 3 degrees and work great. I also like the large temperature readouts and that they show both set temperature and room temperature.

Product works great. Easy to program & it has more features that I know what to do with. Only drawback is when it first calls for heat or cool-it seems to run much longer than at other times. But overall-a good t-stat with a great warranty.

The right choice for me

By Just Your Average Joe

from Clinton, MA

Verified Reviewer

Comments about Digital 5-2 Day Programmable Thermostat Heat Pump/Single Stage (1 Heat/1 Cool):

This thermostat allows you to set the differential temp at .5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5 or 3.0 degrees so that the heating and cooling units do not rapid-cycle off and on to maintain the desired temperature. This was the primary reason for my choosing Robertshaw! The thermostat installs easily - the instructions are understandable given one's understanding of heating and cooling system connections. Robertshaw tech support was quick to respond to my question. Easy to operate. Has a lock code feature to prevent the family from fiddling with the setting. Daddy like!

    is this t-stat a good choice for hydroair heat system with AC.if not what is.need 3 degree diff.to prevent short cycles.also can auto changeover be shut off and used manually.

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      You can set the differential up to 3 degrees.
      Auto changeover can not be turned off specifically but you can manually override your programed temp setting easily. But when you override, your override to the temp setting will expire and the programmed temp setting will take over again in 3 hours.

      yes. The 5110 has 3 degree differential.
      I recently was educating myself on the Robertshaw thermostats with purchasing in mind.
      Every one of the programables are 3 degrees differentials.
      I purchased two 8600s recently.

      Yes - I have a 3 zone radiant system and have 3 of these thermostats. I tried 2 different Honeywell thermostats and they didn't work well because they tried to hold the temperature within +/- 1 degree and the system kept going on and off. They don't have a swing/differential adjustment on any of their thermostats. The Robert Shaw allows you to adjust swing/differential in 1/2 degree steps up to 3 degrees. They work great.
