Turn the power off to the air handler. Open the control cover. Write down what color wires go together at the wiring terminal. All 8 wires are probably not used.
Post the findings here.
In most cases,
E= brown-emergency heat
AUX=white-auxillary heat to supplement HP
Y= yellow-to compressor for heat or cool(hp)
O-orange-reversing valve on HP when energized in COOL
L=t-stat light(probably not used)
R=red-24v incoming power
B=black-reversing valve on HP when energized in HEAT
C=blue-common wire for 24v
Only one of the "O" or "B" will be used. Not both.

W- White (heat)
Y- Yellow (condenser)
G- Green (Indoor fan)
C- Blue (Common 24v)
R- Red (24VAC)
O/B (Only needed if system is a heat pump)

Jumper R to Rc and hook hot wire from transformer to R usually red wire
O = Reversing valve probably white or orange If you get heat when calling for cool or Vice Versa then switch wire from O to the B terminal.
Y = Contactor usually yellow
G = Blower usally green
Jumper Aux to E need to go to unit and use the wire that goes to your Auxiliary or 2nd stage heat
L = Light if you have this terminal on your unit then hook it up.
C = Common from transformer usually black, if you have this terminal on your unit hook this wire up.
Make sure you go to your unit and only hook these wires up if they go to these locations.

Testimonial: "everything is working like a charm now. Initially it was not running but after 5 minutes or so the Fan came up and it is working fine. Thanks"
Hello,You forgot to wire the O terminal w1 witch is the reversing valve.It is important to check if old stat is using O or B in witch case B terminal=w1 leaving O unused.
