Changing thermostat-Any tips ?

I have been reading on here and it seems like the problem I have is the thermostat. It wont shut off when reaches temp or have to move the selector a few time to get it to come on.
Its a Duotherm with the pop off face. I picked up a honeywell looks to have all the same features except digital readout.

Hope to be able to fix it myself, any tips ? Do's Dont's ??
Thanks in advance.

CRS - One problem people think they have with any thermostat is that they often do not give the thermostat enough time to response to the settings. Often they will move the thermostat to a new ON or OFF setting and expect the furnace to immediately turn on or off. The thermostat needs a little time to "adjust" to the new setting.

Try waiting a few minutes after adjusting the thermostat to see if it turns the unit either on or off.

Mine was toast. It would not shut off at all. I installed the honeywell and the heat and air works great and its a digital readout. Just dont know where to hook up the fan ?
There is one extra wire ?

I also installed a Honeywell unit and am glad I did. My original t'stat had six (6) wires and the new unit used only four (4) wires. As best I remember I DID NOT use the blue or brown wires with the new thermostat. I have only one fan speed so I selected the "LOW" speed and it works just fine.
