3iE Energy-Monitoring Thermostat

Quick Menu

What does it mean if my thermostat reads “Ground Fault Error” on the display?

This message will occur if a ground fault is detected. Please contact your electrician to have them test the resistance of your heating system based on the heating model that was installed in your floor using a digital multimeter set to a 200 ohms scale.

Also, please have your electrician make sure a GFI breaker is not used with a thermostat that has built in GFI. This will result in the GFI tripping.

For further assistance, please contact the Warmup technical department with your testing results.

      We have removed the redundant GFI from the electrical box and replaced it with a normal one. Power is live to the thermostat and worked briefly after install. We keep getting a Ground fault error message. We even switched out the thermostat. What else could be wrong?

      • Hi Anna,

        Could be the heating system. Please call our customer service department so they can assist you with diagnosing the issue.
