Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I have a 20 year old honeywell quartz air/heating control. I'm not really sure how to use the heater. It has two separate toggles at the top (one blue and one red), a button that you push "up" at the bottom, which appears to turn this dial inside to either red or blue, a clock thing that doesn't work, or at least appears to do nothing. The air comes out warm for a bit, and then goes cold.

The Blue knob is for cooling the red for heating. I would reccomend replacing it due to the fact the age and it probably has yrs of dust built up on the mercury bulbs which can throw the tempurature off. Dust on these old mecury style thermostats is its worst enemy. The bulb is very sensitve and enough dust can throw the bulb of several degrees.

Honeywell thermostat blows cold air on heat


Thermostats don't actually blow anything, the heating system might though. Check the breakers for your heat system, then call a heating specialist. They're really not that expensive.

How can I make a thermostat connection?


Good morning Yakup.

The best way is to write down how the old t-stat was wired. If that's not available, the only way to determine for certain where each wire goes, is to check what the installer did at the terminals in your home comfort system. Please note the there is high voltage electric in each piece of equipment so if you decide to open up panels, there is always the risk of damaging the equipment or worse, injury or death if you are not a qualified service technician. However, typical color assignments are as follows:
R= (24v from heating appliance) Red
RC= (24v from cooling appliance) Red
These two are only separated when you have two different appliances providing seasonal comfort, like a boiler and an air handler. If you have a warm air furnace with an air conditioner or a heat pump attached then R+RC will have a jumper across them and only one RED wire will be landed there
W= (heat) White
Y= (cool) Yellow
G= (fan) Green
Those colors are pretty standard
The rest of the colors depend on availability in the jacket and are really up to the installer. You mentioned 7 wires but 8 conductors is more likely so I'm assuming the remaining colors are black, brown, blue, and orange.
I always use the following:
C= (common) Black
O/B= (reversing valve for a heat pump) Orange if the valve is energized for heat and Blue if the valve is energized for a/c.
Aux/E= (auxiliary or electric heat) Brown
L= I believe this is a diagnostic terminal for some systems with feedback data and is not used frequently.
After wiring there is some programing to do to set up your new thermostat to your type of system.

Hope that helps. God bless and be careful.

I have a 10 year old honeywell furnace controlled by a SV9541 smart valve. We finally had to switch to heat but no heat. Tried restarting - system does nothing. Checked to make sure the gas line is open...


Sounds like the Ignitor unplug the ignitor check for continuity if no continuity replace Ignitor or you can usually see the crackon the Ignitor with white residue.

Have an approx 20 year old Honeywell ducted air conditioning unit in my just purchased villa. It is not working. Am having trouble finding someone to quote to repair it. I live in the southern suburbs...


If its 20 years old it would benefit you much more to replace it, see the energy star website and it has information on when replacement is the best solution. Over 10 is the general rule of thumb if it over 10 then replacing the equipment will benefit you so much more than a repair. Also honeywell doesn't make equipment anymore and i cant say vie seen one but that doesn't mean its not out there, vie seen Chrysler air conditioners in houses and honeywell dose make controls but not equipment anymore (in fact this is the first honeywell unit vie heard of).

How to wire Honeywell thermostat RTH7500 from old Weathertron GE


You have a control board on your furnace, there is a 3 amp fuse there, that 3 amp fuse needs to be replaced. You most likely touched a wire even by accident and blew the fuse. You will have to remove the door \panels to get at it. It looks like a normal car fuse
