I have a Carrier Infinity system with model # SYSTXCCUID01-V thermostat/control. I need to temporarily remove it from the wall.

I found a diagram of how to install it:

(diagram source)

I do not know how to release the interlocking tabs. It feels very tight and I don't want to break it.

It really will just pull straight off. (Just did it!) No tools required. It feels tight but it seems designed to mount on/off this way.

(Encouraged to try that by this post).

My advice is to gently pull straight out. I did it but I was not sure due to the difficulty of the release. Secondly, I would not ever buy an AC system that would only work with a special Thermostat! A replacement for my Infinity by Carrier is $960.00 (not customer friendly). The only reason my Thermostat is a problem is that the AC button broke. Otherwise if I remove the face and manually switch between Air and Heat- I can get by.

I had the same problem. I tried to pry the thermostat from the back panel with screwdrivers with no luck. I was concerned that the plastic parts would break. Finally I tried a method that worked well. I used my finger tips on top of the thermostat to push opposite directions on the thermostat and the back mounting plate. It came apart quickly.

Careful, these 2 pieces will come apart, but in my case, the drywall anchors gave up first. Then a medium screwdriver was needed, but it wasn't tough. More mad about the drywall anchors.
