Question about Honeywell Electronic Programmable Heat/Cool Thermostat - CT3300A100 Heater

Thermostat Wiring: W2? E? Where to connect?

I am replacing an old mechanical White-Rodgers thermostat with a digital 5-2 day programmable one from Honeywell (Model # 6300B). The wires I have coming out of the wall are connected to R, G, Y, O, W2, and E. Pretty self-explanatory: just match the wires to the new thermostat. But the new Honeywell thermostat doesn't have a W2 or E terminal.

Based on the diagram I have on the installation manual--
C or X, B wires, do not connect

G or F wires, connect to G
W or W1, H, O/B wires connect to W O/B
--unused terminal in between--
Y or Y1, M wires connect to Y
R or RH, 4, V connect to R
Rc or R connect to Rc

I have a fully electric system: 2-stage heat, single-stage cooling. Voltage at the thermostat is 24v

I want to think that W2 can just go to W and E stays disconnected. But before I do anything, I just want to make sure. Thanks for the help in advance

    After doing a bit of reading, I thought I might give you the wire colors to the (old thermostat) terminals, too, just in case:

    R - red
    G - green
    Y- yellow
    O - blue
    W2 - white
    E - black

You have a heat pump. You need a thermostat for "Heat pump with Electric back-up heat". Make sure the 'stat has either an "aux" (auxilliary heat) or an "E"(Emergency heat) terminal. The wiring instructions will be provided with the thermostat.

I am trying to replace my old thermostat with a programmable one, but the wiring diagram on the new one does not incorporate all of the wires that are currently attached. Please help.


The existing connections are O, R, Y, G, C, E, W2. Yes you will need a thermostat designed for the electric heater coils as indicated by the E terminal. The W2 could indicate a second stage cooling compressor.

Need wiring diagram for Honeywell RCT8100


The old thermostat has a second stage heat which is W2. The new one doesn't have second stage heat.
The wiring your describing on the old thermostat is telling me you have a heat pump with second stage heat and the new thermostat is for air conditioning only. You will need to get a thermostat for a heat pump.

Replacing WHITE-RODGERS manual thermostat with 3 wires ( red, white, blue and installing Honeywell electronic thermostat RTH110B, how do I connect it? The heating is not central, baseboard heating.


I have only seen one Honeywell thermostat that would work with a 3-wire heating system.

I would replace it with a White-Rodgers 1F80-0471. They are about $100, but they are a good thermostat, and they work well with the 3-wire zone valves.

Most other thermostats have the "Y" terminal that you need, but do not control the zone valve correctly.
