Fan will not come on when it's set in auto mode


If your thermostat is being used with an electric heating system and the fan does not start in heating mode on auto; remove the thermostat from the subcase on the wall and check for a switch on the back of the thermostat. A lot of electronic thermostats have a switch on the back that says electric/heat pump and gas/oil. If you have electric heat or heat pump you need to switch it to this side. Usually this is set at the factory for gas/ oil. Gas/oil furnaces have built in means of bringing on the fan and electric/ heat pumps are brought on by the thermostat.

Heat pumps require specific heat pump thermostat. If you are trying to install a thermostat that is generic forget it. A heat pump is a diff animal than a central unit. Get the thermostat that matches your system. A generic won't cut it.

No cool air. Thermostat AUX light turned on


I suggest you call a qualified service repair man. There are as many ways to connect a heat pump as there are people doing them. Nothing is standard industry wide that has anything to do directly with color codes, so it would be meaningless to go into them here. The terminals may be adapted to standard but but the thermostat manufacturer may not follow any terminal designations.

However you may just have an extra wire touching one of the terminals inside the thermostat. You can check this by removing the cover. Look where the wires attach to the terminal screws on the thermostat. Sometimes a new service person cuts the insulation back too far here or in the outdoor or indoor units and a "whisker" from one wire can touch the other terminals. A whisker is not the normal case try and move it away from another terminal if its is touching there. However, you may have jumpers in place especially if you have W, W1, W2... at any of the 3 sections, meaning the outdoor, indoor and thermostat.

If you can tell me the terminal designations R,Y, W1, W2, E, G, O, (B)... at the thermostat and the color thereon each, then at the indoor unit terminals or wire designations and the color there, then at the outdoor unit and the color thereon each terminal or wire designation there. I might be able to help if the above whisker check you don't find anything.:

Changed out a Honeywell Thermostat with an Aprilaire Thermostat


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

Hunter 44100A programmable thermostat


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.

RTH7400 thermostat installed-screen display unlit-used page 10 wire installation. Used heat pump wiring-which does not show W2 and Y2 on heat pump schematic, so used conventional displayed W2 and Y2...


w2 and y2 are used for 2stage applications

w2 = 2 stage heat
y2= 2 stage cool

If your system is a single stage system, look for the y1 and y2 terminals. If the thermostat does not have y1 and y2 then you may have the wrong thermostat. As always, please read the directions carefully. Thanks!
