The Brown wire is not attached, the white wire goes to the w2e, the Green goes to the G, the orange wire goes to the O terminal, the yellow wire goes to the Y1 terminal, the blue wire goes to the C terminal, the Red wire goes to the R terminal and there is a jumper wire from the Y 1 to W 1.

Your new thermostat should have a W, Y, R, G terminals, and your wires should be something close to White, Yellow, Red, Green, In my house yellow is actually Blue but the colors really don't matter. go to your furnace and look at the wires there and record each wire color and the letter of the terminal it's connected to you should have the same W, Y, R, G at the furnace. (snap a picture if you have a digital camera) match the terminals to the wires exactly furnace and thermostat and you should be ready to go.
if your dealing with a really old furnace and those letters aren't there you should look into a new furnace to really be ECO friendly.

    Blue to "C"
    Green to "G"
    Yellow to "Y"
    Orange to "W"
    Red to "R"
    White to "W2"




    Generally speaking the wire colors are Red= power, Green= blower, White= heat and Yellow= cooling.

I am replacing a White-Rodgers thermostat with a Hunter 44155C and dont know where to connect the wires. I have white, red, green, blue, and yellow wires and none are labeled as to what they are.


The Yellow wire is for cooling, the white is for heating, the red is for power, the green is for blower fan, the blue is your common wire, all you should have to do is color code the wires to the thermostat. The thermostat should have the colors labeled R,W1,G,Y,B or C for common if it's wired correctly at the Air Handler or evaporator. The blue wire should go to B, or C.

Am wiring my alpine car stereo back to my old car , unfortunately i dont know were to connect the wires , the labels on the wires somehow got cut when i kept it in storage , need help figuring were the red...


First thing you will need to do is to buy a wire adapter for your specific make & year of car. This interfaces the stock wiring plug allowing you to connect the wires from the headunit to the wires of the plug.

Here is a color coding explanation for the wires on your Alpine Deck:

P o w e r Memory (+12v Constant) Yellow Ignition (+12v Switched) Red Ground (-) Black Dimmer Pink/White (Alpine only) Power Antenna Blue Amplifier Turn-on Blue/White Phone Mute Light Blue (Sony only) S p e a k e r s Right Front (+) Gray Right Front (-) Gray/Black Left Front (+) White Left Front (-) White/Black Right Rear (+) Violet Right Rear (-) Violet/Black Left Rear (+) Green Left Rear (-) Green/Black

I am replacing the a/c blower motor and capacitor. The old motor has 1 brown wire to the capacitor, 1 yellow wire to the capacitor (the yellow then loops from the capacitor over to the wiring panel), 1...


Motor Wiring
Old Motor
Brown wire is Start
Yellow wire is run or Power
Black wire is High Speed or Common
The other two taps are speed taps, but you have a single speed application
And high speed is what you need ,that’s why there’s not any wires
on Red and Blue if high speed was to much then you would move the
Black wire to one of the other taps RED low speed or Blue Medinm speed
New Motor
White goes to the Yellow wire from the capacitor
Black goes to the Black wire you took off of high speed on old motor
Of course both Brown wires go to the capacitor and Green to ground
If a capacitor doesn’t discharge it doesn’t mean it’s bad
but the capacitors don’t last as long as they used.
Any time you put in a new motor always replace the capacitor
It will save you a lot of time and grief later on.

Manual Thermostat replcaement with Programmable Digital unit.


Hopefully there are markings on the old t-stat as to what terminal is what.
on the honeywell 8000 use the heat pump labeling and then the standard wiring would be
R- red
AUX-white
Y- yellow
B- O/B
C- black
G- green
There should not be a bare wire, it probably just has the insulation stripped back way too far.
You should probably open the furnace and compare the terminal label in the furnace to the wire color. normally yellow and blue pass through the furnace and are wire nutted to wires going to the outdoor unit. In the furnace the white wire will connect to the w or w1 terminal. also, you will need to set the Honeywell stat to have the following parameters.
170-7
190-1
200-0
other parameters that I did not specify, you may read the manual and make your own decision but I recommend factory settings for the other parameters
