How to Clear Schedule on Honeywell Thermostat

This piece covers how to clear schedule on Honeywell thermostat.  Here, we explain how to do it on the RTH9580WF t-stat.  But other models with a screen work similarly At any rate, you could clear thermostat schedules by resetting it, which also clears every other customized setting like lock screen passwords and screen color customization. But on the RTH9580WF, there’s a much less destructive way to return the t-stat to the built-in default program schedule, without erasing any other setting. You clear a user-defined schedule by following the directions next.

Clearing the t-stat schedule returns the RTH9580WF to the default daily heating and cooling programs, including temperature settings for heating and cooling, and the times that those temperatures should be set. So again,  program your preferred schedule in again to fit your specific energy needs.
