You should have more wires than just two, and you should also only have 1 power wire at the thermostat. Red is usually the power, white is usually for heat, unless it's the wires going to the outside unit. On a normal system, those two wires are the power and common going to the contactor. Heat pumps have more. However, you will not actually need a common terminal, all commons are just grounded to the units housing, therefore your common is nothing more than a ground wire. Hope this helps!

I just got a honeywell 5160 my old thermostat has an extra wire. Called support lady told us to twist together with another wire but sounded very unsure of herself. What do i do


Don't do that. It's possible the new thermostat doesn't require the C wire which is a common wire just tape it off and push it back in the wall if you have standard color coding R should be red W should be white Y should be yellow G should be green the other wire is not used. Or just match terminal for terminal with your old thermostat the leftover wire is the extra tape it off tuck it back in the wall

Wiring Honeywell 9580 to old furnace with no C wire


This is not going to be easy. Check the wiring in the wall to look for the third wire. If they did not run one, you have to run new wire to the furnace and thermostat. If they stapled that wire to the walls inside studs, then it is going to be even harder to run the new wire. Once you run that new wire then you have to locate the connection in the furnace that has the common (c) wire for the transformer. Check you tube to see if the have any how to video.

Wiring thermostat to a American Standard 5ton air handler I don't have the schematics Model twe6a300ab serial# e23176168 year 6-1990


On the thermosta there are terminals, what you need to do is look at the old thermostat that you are replacing and make a note to yourself; what color of wire goes to which terminals,, Rc, R, C, G, W, Y, O, ect.
This is because the installer can use any color of wire. Then just hook the wires up to the same lettered terminals. American Standard should be standard terminal setup.

Upgrade Baystat 239 to a Honeywell RTH7600D controller


For Trane sytems, B is your "Common" wire. O is your reversing valve relay, G is your fan, Y is your compressor contactor, R is Hot, Brown will not be used on your electronic tstat. X2 is your backup electric heaters. Without knowing what terminals are on your new tstat, I cannot offer more information than this. The installation manual may indicate what each terminal is controlling. I strongly suggest to write down ALL of the terminals and colors from your old t-stat and be sure to turn off the power to your air handler. Put the fan switch on your tstat to ON before turning off the power. Make sure the fan is running. Then turn the power off to your Air Handler. If your fan stops running, you have turned the power off to your tstat and are ready to start replacing it with your new tstat. I hope you find this helpful. Good Luck!!!

Six wire hook up and new thermostat has only 5


Some thermostats have an extra terminal for an outdoor sensor which tries to anticipate the need for heating or cooling. If this option is not present, you will have an unused terminal which may have a shorting link to a neighboring terminal. Your installation instructions should mention this if the option is or is not included with your model. Also, heat pump systems vary in the system control voltage and not all thermostats and systems are compatible with the more common split system thermostat.

Blower not working with new thermostat


To get the fan to work, look at the heating system to see what termoinal the blue wire is connected to. It should be the "G" terminal. If so, connect the blue wire to the "G" terminal on the thermostat and then manualy switch the thermostat to "Fan On". Indicate what terminals you have on your new thermonsta ie "G" "R" "Y" "C" "W" etc... For a fan to work, typically you connect "R" to "G" on the furnace.

Changing Thermostats


This is one where you will need a good control man or woman. The American Standard ASYST system is not intended for the homeowner to change out. It has a room sensor wire that others do not account for.
