ecobee3 Cleaning Rebooting and Resetting


You can clean your ecobee3 screen by spraying water onto a clean, microfiber cloth. Wipe the surface of the screen with the dampened cloth.

Note: Never spray any liquids directly onto your ecobee3.


You can reboot your ecobee3 by gently pulling the thermostat from the back plate. To pull the thermostat off the wall, make sure you that firmly hold on to the black front of the thermostat. Ensure that you are not pulling the white trim plate as that is attached to the wall. Rebooting will not alter programming or configuration options.
