Question about Carrier 38BRC048 Air Conditioner
I am trying to wire a new programmable automatic thermostat to my system and found it to have 6 wires when I pulled the old thermostat off. I cannot find the wiring diagram for my system and have not been able to figure it out on my own. Is there a way to wire it so that it works or will this thermostat not work? If this thermostat won't work, where can I get one that will work and will automatically switch from ac to heat?
You probably purchased a 4 wire thermostat which we call heat/cool you stated you have 6 wires which signifies a heat pump you have to purcahase a heat pump thermostat and then write down the color of the wires to there related spots example...yellowe-y red-r white- w and so forth also before you do this kill the power the voltage typical for residential is only 24v's but if the wires touch you could blow a fuse

Is this a heat pump? Look in the thermostat. You should have something like the following.
Red wire to R terminal
Green wire to G terminal
Yellow wire to Y terminal
White wire to W or W1
Blue or Orange wire to the O or B terminal
Brown wire to C terminal.
Let me know what you have in the thermostat. The wire colors are not always the same.
