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.

My White Rodgers 1F78 programmable thermostat shows a constant room temperature of 83-84 in the afternoon, but I set it at 77 throughout the whole day and night. Should I get a new one?


It sounds like the temp sensor is defective in the T-stat. I would replace it, get the newer programmable ones, they are very reliable and very cheap to buy online.

How do I replace an old White Rodgers thermostat with new honeywell TH5220


The Orange wire for the reversing valve and used with a Heat Pump
If you have a heat pump, then yes. If you have a gas furnace then no. If you have a HP and the reversing valve is not connected, then you might just be using the emergency electric heat strips. :-o

W and W2 wiring on old thermostat...where do they go on the new thermostat?


It depends on the equipment you are connecting the thermostat to. If you have a heat pump, the thermostat must be wired differently than if you have separate heating and cooling equipment. If you have a two-stage or modulating furnace (or boiler), the w and w2 wires will conect for heating, and the y and g wires will connect to the air conditioner. Naturally, some configuring must be done with the new thermostat so that it acts correctly. w-w2-wiring-old-thermostat-go-new-u40lsvyytnuesyuv3fbafhtd-1-0.jpg

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.

The best thing to do here is to verify the function of each wire. You may need to call the manufacturer of the old thermostat to have that information. Then cross that with the WR stat. If have difficulty you may call hometechline 18002842925.

White-Rodgers 1F58-58 to Hunter 44660


This is the corrcet wiring:
G - G fan relay
R - RC1, RC put a jumper RH ( to supply power to the cool and heat)
L - no wire connected (malfunction indicator) tape- off that wire
E - Emergency heat relay
B - W/B ( reversing valve in your heat pump energized during heat )
W2 - Auxilliary heat
Y - Y1 ( compressor contact)
O- Y/O ( reversing valve is energized during cool)
make sure that the system selector is on heat pump position.

Wc wiring on thermostat


sounds like you have a heat pump the w2 on old thermostat is for a second stage heat. If you can give me a little more information on type of system you have (forced air furnace with heat/cool, Heat pump or boiler)? How many wires are on old thermostat? Is it a no programmable or programmable? How old is the furnace?
