Hunter Thermostat fan won't turn off

I have a Hunter Thermostat model 44260. When heat turns off, fan keeps on running. I have flipped the HG-HE switch on the back and that temporarily works. However, once the heat kicks back on again and then off the fan fails to stop. How do I fix this problem? Thanks.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, I am inclined to suspect 3 possibilities:

  • sticking relay contacts (if used) (a possibility, least likely);
  • dusty thermal sensor/switch for the fan (likely);
  • time delay. design feature, will power down the fan only after a certain period that the heater has turned off. This is to dissipate residual heat not only on the heater but on the immediate surroundings of the heater element (most likely).
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

My Janittol HPT 18-60 has posts marked Y, G, R, O, W2, E and C. The Hunter thermostat 44260 has fewer post connections G, RC-RH (with Jumper), Y/O, W/B, and Y1. What is the conversion and which wires are...


If your current thermostat is using all of the posts, you most likely have a dual stage heat pump system. A dual-stage heat pump system utilizes electric strip heat as backup heat for use during defrost cycles and to supplement the heat during outdoor temperatures below 30 degrees.
Here is an excerpt from the installation guide of the Hunter 44260 t-stat as well as a link to the guide itself.

pump systems"

I am trying to hook up a Hunter 44260 t-stat. The old one(not sure of model) has the following hookup. White-O Terminal Green-G Terminal Red-RC Terminal Yellow-Y Terminal then jumped to W Terminal...


Here is some basic info to help you. On the thermostat the letters mean... G is for your blower fan, and is usually green, Rc and Rh are power for the heating and cooling circuit (24v) and are usually red; Y (or in this case Y/O) is power to the cooling contactor (outside the house) and is usually yellow, and W (or in this case W/B) is the common wire, and is usually white. It kind of sounds like the people who installed the old thermostat followed these guidelines, so your best chance is to go to the heating unit and seeing where the wires connect to. Hope this helps

Hunter 44630 thermostat


Here is a link that will have wiring diagram it is for a similar model hunter. Also check your dip switch on the back of the stat to ensure it is set for gas (HG) or electric heat (HE) depending on your type of unit. Good Luck. Rule of thumb for most four wire systems is RED (power to stat) Yellow (Cooling) Green (Fan) White (heat)
