Question about Heating & Cooling

I'm installing a Honeywell RTH7600B programmable thermostat and replacing a Honeywell T87F2873. The new one calls for a Red, Green, White, and Yellow wire, while I only have a Red, Green White and Blue. How should I connect the new thermostat?

Every thing the same except take your blue wire and replace the yellow for it. So when you hook it to t-stat goes like this

Red to R
White to W
Green to G
Blue to Y

My old thermostat has only yellow and red wires...no green and white like my new Honeywell thermostat installation instructions mention. Is this a problem?


The green wire is used to turn on the blower if you want constant air circulation. For heat only, the red and yellow wire will work as long as they are connected to R and W terminals on heating unit (or TH and TW on some models).

I currently have a Honeywell T874C1000 and want to replace it with a programmable thermostat. It controls a cooling only air handling unit with an outdoor condensing unit. No heat.


All you have to do is note which wires are hooked to which terminals and exchange them i.e.-R(Red) to R terminal, Y(Yellow) to Y terminal, etc. The only wires you should need are the Red, Yellow, Green, and sometimes Blue if the thermostat is powered by the unit and not batteries. Here are the most common wiring procedures:

Red(R)=Power
White(W)=Heat
Green(G)=Fan
Yellow(Y)=Cooling
Blue(B/C)=Common/Ground

Hope this helps!

Replacing thermostat what to do with single red wirew/bridge?


yes u leave the bridge intact and just put ur red wire to r or rc and usually they say rh and rc that is for a 2 transformer system which obviously u dont have so leave the wire intact jumped and hook ur red wire up yellow is ur ac wire white is ur heat wire and green is ur fan wire and red is ur 24 volt hot wire all a tstat does is jump that red wire to white for heat green for fan or yellow for ac but make sure ur power to ur unit is off before u change wires or u risk touching wires together and burning up transformer

Installing thermostat - extra wire?


you have to go down to your furnace and follow the thermostat wire ...it connects to a terminal strip or fan centre...the color doesn;t really matter...installers mix and match all the time....look at the furnace wiring and mark it down...Red on "R"...Green on "Y" whatever it is...and connect it accordingly upstairs...if you only have 4 thermostat wires downstairs you will need a jumper wire between RH and RC...if you have 5 wires you will see 2 wires on "R" at the furnace.,...and connect either to RH and RC at the thermostat

There is five wires yellow, green, red, white, the problem that we a facing is to connect these wire into the honeywell theromostat RTH3100C1002-0916


yellow is the cool wire, green is the fan wire, white is the heat wire, red is the power wire. these stats should have a 1 letter icon ,r for red on stat y for yellow and so on ,make sure that Rc and RH are jumpered and install batteris if needed

Looks like your system is a heatpump system and that t-stat will not run a heatpump , you need a t-stat for 2heat and 1 cool systems
