Changed out a Honeywell Thermostat with an Aprilaire Thermostat

I changed out a Honeywell Thermostat HPT 18-60 for my Goodman Mfr. Co. Heat Pump, Model CPKE36-1A with an Aprilaire 8870 thermostat, now I have a bad smell when the Emergency heat comes on.

    Discovered the problem to be that the thermostat was commected for a one stage Heat Pump and not two stage. Thatnks for the help. Don't understand why the difference, but this cured teh smell problem.

The thermostat was incorrectly hooked up for a one stage heat pump and not a two stage.

The smell is usually dust on the wires for electric resistance heat.The thermostat shouldnt have anything to do with it.

5 ton goodman package unit not coming on


If you look on the install manual. It says it will work for a heat pump without backup heat. No heat strips.........If you do not have strips the guide says as follows

"PLACE A JUMPER (PIECE OF WIRE) BETWEEN Y AND W IF YOU ARE USING A HEAT PUMP WITHOUT AUXILIARY/BACKUP HEAT." if this dosnt work check the fuse in the air handler you may have blown it if you did not turn the unit off before installing.

Blower on heat pump blowing with no demand


There is a contact in the blower control card that can stick on. There is also a possibility that the green wire which starts the blower motor could be shorting out with the red wire somewhere inside the thermostat wire. If that is the problem, either pull new thermostat wire, (the rest of the insulation is probably breaking down) or there is some new red link controllers from Honeywell that will completely eliminate wire because the controls are all wireless.

I have a TH8000 Vision Pro. It is controling a


Whats' so hard is the Honeywell thermostat has a built in 1@ differential. It is not adjustable.
You might ask your installer about a time delay relay installed in the furnace to break the thermostat heat wire (usually white wire).
Most time delay relays are 90 seconds. But that might be enough to reduce the furnace cycling.

Check to see if you have the system switch accidently on em. heat. The way you have it wired is correct except for the having brown on e. disconnect brown wire and cut ofbare end just in case they have the wire hooked up for constant run on roof.

Heat pump auxiliary heat does not turn on


Turn up your outside thermostat in the outside unit.
You should have about 3 degrees difference in one stage to the next. So I would change the thermosat with one that has three stages of heat.
