The T874A-F Thermostats provide 24 to 30 Vac control
for heating and/or cooling systems as listed in Table 1.
TABLE 1—THERMOSTAT HEATING AND/OR
The Q674A-E,G Subbases provide wiring terminals,
system and fan switching, and mounting bases for T874
Thermostats as listed in Table 2.
TABLE 2—SUBBASE SWITCHING POSITIONS.
On a 2-heat thermostat, the two stages of heat make
sequentially as the temperature drops. Make refers to the
mercury switch initiating a call for heat or cool.
There are about 2° F [1° C] between stages so that the
second stage makes only when the first stage cannot handle
the load. This is the interstage differential.
This control contains mercury in a sealed tube. Do not
place control in the trash at the end of its useful life.
If this control is replacing a control that contains mer-
cury in a sealed tube, do not place your old control in the

4. After installation is complete, check out product
operation as provided in these instructions.
1. Disconnect power supply to prevent electrical
shock or equipment damage.
2. To prevent interference with the thermostat
linkage, keep wire length to a minimum and
run wires close as possible to the subbase.
3. Do not overtighten thermostat captive mount-
ing screws because damage to subbase threads
4. Do not short across coil terminals on heating
relay or gas control. This can burn out the
thermostat heat anticipator.
IMPORTANT: Thermostats are calibrated at the factory
by using subbases mounted at true level. Inaccurate
subbase leveling will cause thermostat control de-
Locate the subbase about 5 ft [1.5m] above the floor in
an area with good air circulation at average temperature.
Do not mount the subbase where the thermostat may be
— drafts or dead spots behind doors and in corners.
— hot or cold air from ducts.
— radiant heat from sun, appliances or fireplace.
— concealed pipes and chimneys.
— unheated (uncooled) areas such as an outside wall
behind the thermostat.
MOUNTING THE SUBBASE
The thermostat subbase can be mounted on a vertical
outlet box, horizontal outlet box or directly on the wall.
1. If you must mount the subbase on a vertical outlet
box, order Honeywell 193121A Adapter Assembly (Fig. 1).
The assembly includes an adapter ring, two screws and a
cover plate to cover marks on the wall. Install the ring and
cover plate on the vertical outlet box.
