Question about Air Conditioners

1 Answer

Disconnecting green wire from thermostate did allow furnace to run properly but every time I want to switch back to heatpump I must reconnect green wire again.Here is how wires are connected to themostate.Red to rcJumper wire from RC to RYellow to YBlack to COrange to OBGreen to GWhite to AugWires go toWhite to W on furnace control panelYellow to heatpumpGreen to heatpump and G on panelOrange to heatpump Black to heatpump and C on panelRed to heatpump and R on panelBlue,Brown,purple,gray and white wires not used at thermostate and also not used at heatpump.It shows in wiring guide that there should be a jumper between Aux and Eand that E sends output when set to Em.heat.Should one of these unused wires go from E to heatpump.I have tried to get installer to come back and fix it but no luck.thank you very much again.

    there is no RH on t-stat

  • RAY TRUMAN Dec 10, 2008

    had to disconnect green wire from g on t-state so that fan would not run constantly



  • dwkcool May 11, 2010

    is this a new t-stat

  • dwkcool May 11, 2010

    Does the t-stat have an Rh also beside Rc and yes it needs a jumper wire from AUX to E

Try this.

A T-stat.

Orange = O
Red = R (with existing jumper)
Black = C
Yellow = Y
White =W1 (Or AUG)
Green =G

At airhandler/furnace.

Green = blower wire (usually green, double check with schematic)
(Green should not go to the HP.)
Orange to HP
Red to red and to HP
black to blue (or C) and to HP
White to W
Yellow to HP. (It may also go to a "float switch" if installed. but that will just be a safety switch on the drain pan in case the line clogs and it overflows.)

The green is typically used for the blower motor. (furnace only)

The orange is used for the reversing valve. (changes from AC to heat, is located in the HP only)

Blue is typically used for common (or "C") but they may have changed it to black due to a broken wire, or other problems.

The only wires going to the HP should be
Red
Blue/black
orange
yellow

Orange should not be going to the furnace at all.

HP wiring should be
Orange to orange or O
Red to R or red
Blue/black to blue or C
Yellow to Y

What will cause the furnac to run all the time even with the t stat off?


If it's just the fan without heat it's locked out on high limit. Or you have your thermost set to on instead of to auto for the fan. Other reason could be the contactors on the board are welded shut causing the fan to continualky run or the green wire that provides power to the fan relay is making contact with the red wire that provides power to the thermostat. Remove the green wire from the thermostat. If the fan shuts off it's the thermostat. If it doesn't the problem is elswere. Wiring issue or problem at the unit.

I installed a run capacitor for my blower motor on my RUUD ac model UGPH10EBRJR. now it runs all the time. I even disconnected my thermostat and it kept running. is it my thermostat? or something else


An open limit switch may make the fan run all the time. Try disconnecting the Green wire @ the furnace...if that does the trick, then either the thermostat fan relay is stuck, or there is a short between the Red & Green wires somewhere in the thermostat wire.

My gas furnace and heat pump runs at the same time???


its likely the outside control unit board its supposed to only kick on gas only when the temp is at freezing..
or
the inside thermostat is not selected for heat pump, open it an look at the jumper / switch.
or just replace the thermostat , then return it saying you couldnt figure it out. :P
there are a lot more variables here after that you cant know how to check.

Thermostat Wiring Problems!!!


. your blue is probably common and if you hooked it to Y you shorted the transformer or blew the low voltage fuse. Green is fan, yellow is AC, Red is 24volt. Is it a heatpump or just ac? I think its probably a heat pump and your brown is your Reversing valve it needs to be hooked to O on the new stat. If its a heatpump your tstat must be a 2heat 1 cool stat w/ aux heat. Without knowing what terminals the wire were hooked to on the old stat you may have to look at whats hooked up at airhandler( furnace) and on A/C (heatpump) tobe able to determine what goes where on the new one.

When I set tstat to call for a/c, compressor outside comes on. Blower on furnace does not. When I manually rotate fan limit switch on furnace wall, blower comes on, blows cold air, and then goes off when...


blower relay bad or no call from stat on green wire to run fan jump red on stat to green if fan comes on stat bad if no look for fan relay turning the well switch bypasses the relay hope this helps

Can you bypass piggyback system if you want to just use heatpump. John


I'm assuuming you are talking about your furnace or 2nd. stage heat, when you say piggyback system. Yes you can go to your thermostat or furnace and disconnect just the 2nd. stage heat wire(see furnace wiring diagram), this will not allow the heat to come on in the furnace but it will still allow the indoor blower to run and the heat pump.

Ruud air to air heatpump intertherm propane furnace honeywell th5220d non programable thermostate.fan on furnace will not turn off in aux.mode even though the furnace heat kicks on and off. thank you for...


Make sure fan relay is wired correctly (G) wire. Ensure the fan on therm is not on, it should be on Auto or off.

If your furnace is short cycling because it has to keep heating your home, the delay in the control board may be staying on to compensate for the exchangers getting hot. If it heats normally, then put your attention to your thermostat.

Set the heating system on aux heat only. Fan should not be on, if it does stay on after a heating cycle, see if the furnace is heating normally, and reaching temp as desired before the heat comes off. Then check the therm wiring, pull the face of the therm, disconnect green wire (fan) and try the heating again.

Manual Thermostat replcaement with Programmable Digital unit.


Hopefully there are markings on the old t-stat as to what terminal is what.
on the honeywell 8000 use the heat pump labeling and then the standard wiring would be
R- red
AUX-white
Y- yellow
B- O/B
C- black
G- green
There should not be a bare wire, it probably just has the insulation stripped back way too far.
You should probably open the furnace and compare the terminal label in the furnace to the wire color. normally yellow and blue pass through the furnace and are wire nutted to wires going to the outdoor unit. In the furnace the white wire will connect to the w or w1 terminal. also, you will need to set the Honeywell stat to have the following parameters.
170-7
190-1
200-0
other parameters that I did not specify, you may read the manual and make your own decision but I recommend factory settings for the other parameters

Rheem furnaace blower stays on


On a furnace the fan is controlled by a computer and a sensor ot a oldstyle fan thermostat. Basically it waits till the furnace heats up a little and then turns it on and after it shuts off it will run till the thermostat cools back down may take a few mins. In cool mode the thermostat controls the fan so it shuts down immediatly. This is why the thermostat asks you if its electric or gas heat. Should have a switch somewhere for this.
