Main Heat/Air thermostat dead

Slide the control to "Gas Heat",(Front furnace) the LED screen went blank and none of the controls respond.(Fan/auto/on, gas heat, cool, heat pump, fan speed) Checked/replaced the 2A/240V fuse in the thermostat, no help. Seems strange I can't locate a propped breaker, as various systems are dead. The large gas furnace, controlled by a thermostat in the bedroom works fine.

Thoughts/ideas

What else quit working at the same time? Did you lose 12VDC stuff or 120VAC stuff?

Only the HVAC units controlled by that specific thermostat.

Check your power and connections on the control board inside the panel where your propane heater is located. I had lost power on my thermostat once and it was a bad scotch lock that was on the on/off switch inside the compartment.

Jake, you were 100% correct, disconnected the connector/reconnected, flipped the cut-out switch a couple of times, system is back to regular operation.

Thanks again.
