Trane Weathertron XE1000 Thermostat Wiring

I have a Trane weathertron XE1000 heat pump and I have the following wires coming in for the thermostat: yellow, green, red, orange, black, white, blue and brown. I am trying to hook up a Goodman Janitrol HPT 18-60 thermostat and the connectors inside are Y G R O W2 E and C. what wires go where? I currently have the yellow to y, green to g, red to r, orange to o, white to w2, brown to e, blue to c and black unhooked. everything seems to be running ok but the emergency heat strips seems to be running all the time causing my electric bill to skyrocket. PLEASE HELP!!!

    I already have the black wire disconnected too, so the black and brown both should be disconnected?

    All the wire hook ups look fine with except the Brown wire. Problem is I have no idea what wires are hooked to what at the unit. Can you confirm wire and let me know.

Check to see if you have the system switch accidently on em. heat. The way you have it wired is correct except for the having brown on e. disconnect brown wire and cut ofbare end just in case they have the wire hooked up for constant run on roof.

    Yes. Like I said if the unit was set up wiring wise for the heatstrips to run all the time based on where you live then both should be unhooked..try that and let me know.

Heat/Cool does not respond after replacing Trane Weathertron BAYSTAT239 with Honeywell RTHL3550

Sounds like you didn't turn the power off and blew the low voltage fuse. Typically a 5 amp blade style (like a car) inside furnace. TURN THE POWER OFF!!

Hi, I have a 1984 Trane Weathertron Heat Pump/Air Conditioner. We had to move the thermostat a couple feet. When we tried to use it, the system would not turn on. We reset the circuit breaker; the power is...

You likely blew the low voltage fuse. Uncertain about the weathertron but it's likely a buss style fuse. I typically cut it out, add 2 spade clips and install a blade style fuse (5amp) . Turn power off first and check blower compartment.

Changing From Trane to Honeywell

Color ---> New stat terminal

White------E and Aux.
Tan---------unused, tape and secure it

If there is Rh and Rc or R and Rh, these terminals should be jumpered together.

I used to install Weathertrons eons ago. Whatever you do DO NOT connect the blue wire to the B terminal, you will short out your low voltage transformer immediately when you switch to heat

Trane weathertron thermosatat

OK. Here is a Trane Weathertron BAYSTAT240 thermostat wiring picture. This heat pump w/ electric (emergency) heaters is running right now. Notice the G terminal has green wire, the R terminal has red wire, the white wire is jumpered from W to X2, etc. The black wire loop you see in the center hole is unconnected.

This unit is adjusted by leveling the base - loosen the screw to the left of "R" and the one to the right of "F". Twist the base clockwise to RAISE the indicator. This makes the mercury in the switch turn ON at a different temperature. Remember to tighten those 2 screws again.

You will have to experiment several times to make the unit read exactly right. If the tech installed the base exactly level, the unit would read right (it says here).
