Question about Hunter Fan Company 5/1/1 Programmable Thermostat

1 Answer

Air and heat have both been running on Hunter 44155C

We heat with gas so when I got my December electric bill, it was outrageous. We had the Hunter 44155C digital thermostat installed in late summer by a licensed electrician we had used for years. At first, I had problems programming it. I had it set on 72 and it was 79 in our house. We were burning up in August. I thought I was programming it wrong. So we dealt with it for a few weeks. Then the weather cooled and I didn't notice any problems with the temperature. When I changed it to heat, we had no problem heating the house. Only when we received our December electric bill, did I start to be concerned. Our electric rates had gone up, so ... Then after 3 months of outrageous electric bills, I went to our electric office and had them come and they discovered that our air conditioning AND our heat were both running at the same time. And they had been since we had the Hunter 44155C
digital thermostat installed. That explained why it was so hot at first and why our electric bills were so high. Our compressor had been running at the same time as our heat. We had the thermostat removed and replaced it with our old one. Everything seems to be back to normal now. Has anyone else had this problem? I was wondering if there had been any recalls on this or if I just got a bum one?

    I have not checked to see if my A/C and heat were running at the same time. My eletric bill are like $70.00 higher than the previous years. My gas bill is like $125.00 higher as well. I am just going to install a honeywell thermostat.

    I followed those instructions to the letter, replacing those old gold Honeywell dials with the Hunter 4415Cs. We both have gas furnaces and electric air conditioners. It seems to work fine at the first house, but at the other, the air conditioner also comes on. For now, I switch off the a/c using the circuit breaker.

There should be a switch on the thermostat.
AC-OFF-HEAT
And another switch
FAN ON-OFF-AUTO
Normally, you just set it for heat or AC and set the fan for auto. If it isn't wired correctly, the switches won't make any difference. It will either run all of the time or not at all.

Furnace will not turn on even after the thermostat is programed. Thermostat is a Hunter 44155c


5 a. Check the Heat/Cool function switch to ensure it is set to the desired position. 5 b. Wait. There may be as much as a 4-minute delay before the system turns on or off to protect the compressor. 5 c. Check the circuit breakers and switches to ensure there is enough power to the system. 5 d. Replace the batteries. 5 e. If applicable, make sure the furnace blower door is closed properly. 5 f. If your system has 4 wires, ensure the jumper wire is installed between the RC and RH terminals.

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.

Switching old thermostat to Hunter thermostat model 44155c


By describing the wires from your new thermostat and your old one, it sounds like your new thermostat is not compatible with your system. If you have seven wires now, then you more than likely have a heat pump system and you have to get a thermostat that is compatible with this type of system. Then you will have the connections you need.

3 Month baby and need help hooking up thermostat ASAP


The wire colours mean nothing. If your old one didn't have letters or you already disconnected it, you will have to go to the furnace. Under one of the panels there will be a control board to which the thermostat wires connect and this might have the letters printed on it. Trace them back and connect them appropriately.

If you have a furnace that is like mine (a single-stage natural gas one), chances are that R is +24V, C is common, W is heat call, and G is the blower. Y is generally cooling. The furnace could be turned on by connecting R, W, and G together, I suppose, if the above doesn't work... but it won't shut off automatically.

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)

What were each wire connected to on the white rodgers? The connectors on the white rodgers should have markings. Tell me this and I can tell you how to wire your new stat. This hunter will not work with multi stage heat pumps..so I need to know what was connected to what on the white rodgers to know what type of unit. Thanks Kevin
