Turn it off at the breaker. Strip about 1/4" insulation off each wire. Run down to Home Depot and buy one of those water-proof wire screw kits that water will not penetrate when it dries.

Come home, take the wire nuts out, twist the two ends on one color together and pour in the epoxy; Twist until tight as you can get. Then do the other one. After the epoxy sets up you'll be okay as long as none of the wires are exposed through the insulation. I would bury them if you have enough slack.

I need the wiring diagram to wire a thermostat to the outside unit. Which wire goes where ? My Thermostat has four wires, green, red, white, and yellow. My Outside unit has three wires that are not...


The thermostat wires are this, Red is 24 volts hot, Yellow is cooling, Green is fan,indoor, and white is heat.The outdoor unit wires up to the indoor units terminal board, not the thermostat.The red will go to the R or red 24 volt wire at the furnace.The yellow goes to the yellow terminal at the furnace. You should only have 2 wires to connect at the outdoor unit. Try capping the blue off.It may not be used unless this is a dual transformer unit which you will need a tech to come out and rewire the furnace to make the outdoor unit a 2 wire set-up. This can be very complicated if this is the case. Connect these wires like I have said to the indoor unit, and it should work fine. Please keep me posted. This is only low voltage, so don't let it scare you. If nothing works, I would say that the blue wire outdoors is the 3rd wire for a 2 transformer unit, and will need to be rewired at the indoor unit for it to work, this I would have to be there to do.

I am adding a light to a Hampton Bay fan. From the ceiling wiring I have a red and a green wire that are not connected. Is the red wire for the light and do I tie it in to the black wire to the fan for...


The green is a ground and the red is the hot wire for the light. One wire from the light kit is white and should be connected to the other white wire in the fan. The red wire should be the hot wire and gets connected to the black or blue (other wire) from the light kit. If you connect the two wires and the light does not come on, you need to find the other end of the red wire and make sure it is connected to a switch to give it power. The other end of the red wire is probably in the single gang box where the wall switch for the fan is located. Or you can tie the red wire for the light to the black wire for the fan and simply use the pull cord to cut on/off the light.

561CJ060-a bryant air conditioner two control wires disconnected


Sorry if I am answering this 2x. If it is just A/C then the red and white probably go to the coil for the contactor that cuts on the fan and compressor. If it is a heat pump then they probably go to a circuit board. Red to R terminal and White to W1 terminal. Let me know what you find.

If you have a central air conditioner, or a split system, where the indoor unit is attached to the furnace and a outdoor unit is located outside of the home. 2 copper lines will be connected to it, a larger and a smaller one. If it is a air conditioner and not a heat pump, the A/C usually uses 2 wires, that are connected. Allot of times a installer will use a 3 wire thermostat wire, to run to the outdoor unit, if this is the case, the third wire will be folded back out of the way.
The color of the wire is usually picked by the installer, I myself usually use white and red and fold the green out of the way. If you only had 2 wires hooked to it to start with, it really would not make a differace which one you hook up to either one of the yellow wires.
All you are doing it having one wire coming in and one wire leaving,,,, just creating a complete circuit, just don't connect the two yellow wires together.
Example: If you have 2 yellow wires on the A/C unit and 2 wires coming from the house "example a red and a white" hook the white to "One yellow wire" and the red wire to "the other yellow wire".
You are just creating a complete circuit, when the thermostat calls for cooling, it creates a magnetic pull and closes the contact points, in the air conditioner, outside, this allows the 220 volt to flow to the compressor,,, and ahhhh cooling!
I hope I have not confused you, I am just starting to help on this site and still trying to make things understandable.
Wish you the best,

I have had this problem with a Fujitsu unit before. If the power is supplied to the outdoor unit first but unit is meant to have power supplied to indoor unit first, outdoor will only stop when power is cut off! In that case, you will have to run the power cable to the indoor unit first and then connect from appropriate terminal back to outdoor unit. (Often the indoor will stop outdoor unit by just cutting the power to it via use of a relay on the pcb.)

I have a Ruud air-conditioner/heat pump and it blows 5 amp fuse.


It sounds like the thermostat wire going to the condenser is ground, It either got pulled loose and is touching the housing or as in most cases the wire got cut or was chewed by an animal. You need to turn electric off to both devices and physically inspect the thermostat wire going from the air handler to the outside unit, also inspect where they connect inside the unit. When you find the break, cut and strip each individual wire and securely wire nut each conducter red to red white to white and so on. There you go all fixed. That's when I give you the bill for $75...except this time you write that check to yourself. Good Luck
