Hunter 44100A programmable thermostat

I have 6 wires going to my old thermostat. Orange(o), green(g), yellow(y), red(r), blue(x), and white(w2). Do I just tape off the orange and blue in order to install the new thermostat? The old thermostat is a Honeywell heat pump thermostat if that matters.

    Knowing that I need the (o) wire is helpful, but where do I hook it? This thermostat only has terminals for y, w, g, rh, and rc.

    Had a feeling that would be the case. I just happened to have this thermostat sitting in a box from a previous residence and was hoping I could get some use out of it. Thanks.

After you install honeywell you have to set it; by holding down one of the bottom below the display and the right top button. This take you to the setting menu. The representative-1-800-468-1502 feed me the numbers I need to set the program and now it's working great.Thank God for representative that do their jobs well.

Yes you will need the orange (o) wire for the reversing valve in your heat pump. T-stat color code is red (r) for 24v power from transformer. Blue (x or c) is the common or the other 24v power from transformer and this will power your programmable t-stat. Orange is for the reversing valve that will switch your heat pump from cooling and heating. Green (g) controls your inside blower. Yellow (y) brings on your outside unit. White is your backup heat.

Since i don't know what brand heat pump you have, i am assuming you have a cool active reversing valve, therefore the orange wire will connect to the "O" terminal. If you have a heat active reversing valve the orange wire would be connected to the "B" terminal. You will know it is wrong when you turn on the system in cooling mode and it blows hot or warm air. Another way to know quickly is to go out to your outside unit when you turn it on in the cooling mode and feel of the suction line(the large copper line coming out of your condensing unit) and see if it is cool. If it is, great. If it is hot then you would have to switch the orange wire to the "B" terminal.
Hope this helps.

Shut power off to Air Handler first before hooking up the thermostat..... Looks like the Hunter Thermostat does not have a Common Terminal...... Is it a Heat Pump thermostat???? I am not a big Fan of Hunter Thermostats they do not have the features that Honeywell thermostats have.
Back to your Question:
G to G ; R to Rc&Rh : O to Y/O; White Wire to W/B; Y to Y1;
L-Black is not used it was for a service lite
C-Blue will not be used it was the common wire

With the Hunter Stat you will not have an emergercy heat option

Is this a heat pump? Look in the thermostat. You should have something like the following.
Red wire to R terminal
Green wire to G terminal
Yellow wire to Y terminal
White wire to W or W1
Blue or Orange wire to the O or B terminal
Brown wire to C terminal.

Let me know what you have in the thermostat. The wire colors are not always the same.

Blue (C) or sometimes (B) should be your common wire. Look at your schematics and locate common. Your Brown wire is (E) and is emergency heat, white wire (W) is Auxilary Heat, green wire (G) is fan relay, red wire (R) is power, yellow wire (Y) is Cooling and orange wire (O) is reversing valve.
