44860 thermostat won't activate in heat mode

I replaced a Honeywell CT3611 on a heat pump system. The AC works fine but the heat does not activate. The system setting is on heat pump. The controll wiring is a 6 wire system.

I had the same set and problem. I had a RC wire which is the power to the AC. But didn't have an RH wire which is the power for the heat. To fix this just use the jumper wire and insert it in with the RC wire and hook it up to the RH. Fixed my problem.

Replaced an Inter therm Thermostat Model # 65a-473-765b, with a Hunter Model 44860. The Fan works on everything but the heater. Heater comes on and runs for about 2 minutes but no fan, I manually turn on fan. I have tried to put it on auto and the Fan clicks off. Everything else works fine. Hooked up Red (with jumper RH/RC) ,White,Yellow and Green wires. I have 4 more wires that were not attached to old thermostat, Blue Orange Brown and Black. What do you suggest for my next move on getting heater to come on? Thanks Mike

We had the same problem with a Rheem and a Honeywell thermostat and changed to the Hunter 44860. X is C and had to use the little jumper as in a single stage to get it to work. Made sure our span degree is 2, no less and fan set to auto.

Now here is the kicker...our white loops and goes to the emergency heat terminal as in the old thermostat. Is this coming on too?

Our heat bill jumped, but I am not sure if it had to do with the thermostat or whether is was because we had some unusually cold weather here in the south.

Currently, all is working as far as we can tell...on/off when supposed to. If we get another high bill, I will call the HVAC guy to review our wiring....never can tell if the old thermostat was right to begin with!

    Well, the saga continues. Noticed a burning smell about a day after our unit iced over. Turned air on to melt ice..no problem. 24 hrs later a burning smell..metallic/electrical, then it went away. Came back less smelly that afternoon. Call techn., fuses had some burnt spots, replaced, added freon. That nite, little smell, this morning, iced over. Is my thermostat wired correctly? They wouldn't touch it under my home warranty contract but looked at the diagram and listened to how we hooked it up.



    Got a call in today to them. If they fix it, I will post.

The Honeywell LR69071 (old) has 7 wires connected labeled (X W2 R O Y G E) The Hunter 44860 (new) has wire connections for ( Y1 Y2 W2 G RH RC/R B W1 E O C L) What connects with what? There is also a jumper...


Wiring on the old one, "X", probably a brown wire will not be used on the new stat. If it's a blue wire, this may be your common. "E" and "W2" probably wired together with a white wire, this controls electric heat. "R" with a red wire, this is 24 volt power. "O" is an orange wire, this is the reversing valve. "Y" is a yellow wire, this is the contactor. "G" is a green wire, this is the blower. This pretty accurate? On the new stat, the jumper should be connecting "RH" to "RC/R", leave it in and wire the "R" from your old one to either terminal. White from the old one will go to the "E" of the new one. If your electric heat doesn't work after the install, you may need to jumper the "W1" and "W2" with the "E". "O" wires to "O". "Y" from the old one wires to the "Y1" of the new. "G" wires to "G". "C" on the new one is common. Usually a blue wire goes here. If "X" on the old one was blue, plug it into the "C". If it was brown, I'd suggest not using a common, and installing batteries. Hope this helps.

Im replacing my honeywell with a hunter 44110 the honeywell has 6 wires w1 to white, w2 to blk, G to green, RH to Red, Y2 to yellow and Y1 to orange, the hunter only has G RH RC Y W


Hi,
I hate to tell you this but that thermostat will not work with your system.
The system you have is a 2 stage system and the thermostat you got will only do one stage.
You will need to get a thermostat theat is compatible with stage heating and cooling.
The W1 is the first stage heating, the W2 is second heating. The same is true for Y1 and Y2 on cooling
You could double them up, but it would defeat the encomoy reasons for having a 2 stage unit.
Wish I could give you better news..

I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

Hunter 44860 says heat is running


Does the indoor blower come on when you switch the unit to "Fan/ Run"? If the indoor fan comes on, this verifies that you have both low voltage and high voltage to the unit. If not, you may have one or both voltages giving you a problem. Try this and let's see if we can get it going. This is step one in checking it out.

Good luck and hope this helps

My Honeywell Thermostat Mdel # T8011R displays all the icons at the same time. This occured when returning from an electrical outatge.


After being disconnected from the expert, whom wasn't of any help, I called our AC/Heater maint. person for service. Upon hearing the problem he told me to turn the power source off for at least 30 minutes. After restoring the power source everything worked fine. The secrret is leaving the source off for at least 30 minutes. Your expert advised to turn the source Off and then back On which didn't solve anything. This remedy may work with other Honeywell models as well.

In all due respect, I hope I'm not charged for the lack of results which your expert provided.

Honeywell programable thermostat not recognizing nigh time settin


This is the problem you have when you rely on "modern electronics". Suggest you buy a manual 'stat and just turn down the temp at bedtime. Make it cold and use a blanket, that is what we did in the " good 'ole days".
