Q Why dont the remotes for my 8082 or 8082C work?

A The Ritetemp thermostats with remote control must have the 24VAC for the remotes receiver inside the thermostat to work. The remote receiver in the thermostat requires power and would substantially reduce battery life so cannot run on the batteries.

If the C wire is not readily available, a 24VAC plug-in power adapter may be used by connecting its wires to the thermostats terminals RH and C. There is no polarity of the two wires so either wire can go to either terminal. The Radio Shack Cat No. 273-1690 adapter can be used. Cut off its connector and connect the two wires to RH and C.
