Does the new stat have a pin labled (G)? Connect your fan wire (usually green) to that pin, and then call for fan on your therm. Straight heat stat means it has only heat and cool pins, there is no option for fan. If your not getting the fan to come on including heat, make sure you have the white wire and red wire connecting to your new stat.

Out thermosat for our furnace and air conditioners will not work. There is no poweer going tot he thermostat at all.


Hi, if you have no power to the stat, go to the furnace if this is a split system. Depending on the year you have, this unit may have the main circuit board with a 3 to 5 amp control fuse plugged into it. If this is what you have, check this fuse, it is the same as the fuses in your car. If you don't have this circuit board, locate the transformer where your thermostat wires come in and check for power at both the 120 volt primary side ( power in ) and see if you have 24 volts coming out of the secondary side of it. If no power in, check the circuit breaker to the furnace. If there is power in and nothing out, the transformer is gone. Check close for any breaks in the stat wires at the furnace also. I may need to have the model and serial numbers, and if its a split gas fired or a heat-pump unit if this information does not apply to your unit. Let me know.

I hooked up a coleman electric furnace to a janitrol condenser heat pump . The t-stat wires on electric furnace are red white green and yellow. I added a blue for common off of transformer for digital...


Hi, first of all you need to get a hand full of 5 amp auto type fuses and install one on the hot leg of the 24 volt secondary side of the transformer. Just use 2 female crimp on connectors and put the fuse in the middle of the hot wire. Saves $$$$ on replacing transformers when you have a dead short on the low or high voltage side of any transformer, just a trick of the trade, food for thought. Fuses are much cheaper. On your electric unit, you may not need the common on this to operate the digital stat if it has batteries. This may be your dead short. On the Janitrol condenser, the red is your 24v as you no. They are using blue in place of yellow for cooling. Red is hot, W is heat, G for fan, and blue is cooling on this Janitrol. Keep in mind you are connecting to a heat-pump also, so make sure the wiring is correct. Are you installing this for secondary Heat?? More then likely, the blue common you have added is the dead short as the janitrol uses the blue for a cooling relay in place of yellow. Anyway, use the 5 amp fuse, trick of the trade to save on the transformers. Please keep me posted, as I know know you have this under control.

I have a heating unit and trying to wire thermostat got 2 white wires, a red and a clear. where do they go


Hi, with just a heater and no air, the red would be the hot wire which goes to the R terminal on thermostat and clear which are normally white will go to W on the stat. If you have a heat only stat, it should have only the R and W connections. If a central heat and air stat, wire it the same, but you may need a third wire for the fan if it is forced air. You would be better off running down to the hardware store and getting a 24 volt heat only stat. I don't know what kind of heater you have, but make sure of the control voltage of the unit. Most gas, heat-pumps, gas & electric are 24 volts ac. Some heat only units are milivolts. Anyway, connect the 2 as I have said. Before you wire the 2 wires to the stat, touch the 2 together and watch to see if it fires up. It may have a delay, but should fire right up if the heater is working right. No danger of shock as this is very low voltage, nothing to worry about when testing. If it is a central type gas furnace, the voltage will be 24 volts. Please rate me on this as I know you will be kind. I chose not to charge you for my time on this thread. Keep me posted.

Replacing a Coleman with a Duotherm, can the same thermostat and controls be used?


Hi, yes you can use the same thermostat if you are replacing the unit that has the same sequence of operation. What I mean is, if the old unit is a gas fired furnace and outdoor condenser split system for the a/c you can use the same controls, or if its a package unit. Now, if you are installing a heat-pump unit in place of a gas fired central unit, you will need to pull more stat wire and buy a heat-pump thermostat to make it run.

I have Coleman Heat pump and i want it to conect as AC only any ideas since i changed furnace to gas and the guys dont know how to conect it back as AC only.


Change out the thermostat to a straight cool gas furnace stat.If the reversing valve energizes in cool, simply hook the reversing valve low voltage wire to the yellow compressor wire. If it energizes in heat do not hook it up to anything.

Short cycling..continually..minimal heat


Is this furnace standing pilot or electronic? if standing pilot turn power off then take t-stat off wall and connect the wires labeled r and c together and see if that keeps furnace working. If electronic check flame sensor you can check flame sensor buy cleaning with steel wool. if that doesn't work then try t-sat.

Wiring from thermostat to furnace


Typically you normally will have five wires controlling your furnace and airconditioning. R Y W G C. If you get some thermostat wire. Connect them like this---- red wire will go to R(this is your 24V to thermostat)----yellow wire will go Y(Y is your cooling)----white wire will go W(W is for heating)---green wire to G(green is your fan)---black can go to C(this is your common to supply 24Vto thermostat)
