How to install Emerson 1F95-1277 touchscreen 7-day programmable thermostat?

  1. Pull the thermostat body off the thermostat base. Forcing or prying on the thermostat will cause damage to the unit.
  2. Place base over hole in wall and mark mounting hole locations on wall using base as a template.
  3. Move base out of the way. Drill mounting holes. If you are using existing mounting holes and the holes drilled are too large and do not allow you to tighten base snugly, use plastic screw anchors to secure the base.
  4. Fasten base snugly to wall using mounting holes shown in Figure 1 and two mounting screws. Leveling is for appearance only and will not affect thermostat operation.
  5. Connect wires to terminal block on base using appropriate wiring schematic.
  6. Push excess wire into wall and plug hole with a fire resistant material (such as fiberglass insulation) to prevent drafts from affecting thermostat operation.
  7. Carefully line the thermostat up with the base and snap into place.
