Question about Honeywell Programmable Thermostat Heater
I recently replaced a 3yr old Honeywell thermostat with the new programmable RTH2310.
When I connected it, the heat came on when it is in cooling mode. I connected all of the wires as instructed. I had taken a picture of the wiring on the old one just to make sure. I live in Florida and have an electric heat pump. I set the back jumper to electric mode. The jumper between Rh and Rc is still in place. Is this the problem?
The old thermostat was wired with the red unconnected but the brown wire was connected to R. I repeated this condition on the new one.
The Orange, Red, Blue, and Black wires are taped off and unconnected.
We had experienced the same problem with the old thermostat but it was infrequent and barely noticable. It appeared that both cooling and heat were running concurrently. Now it is just heating.
Ok to start with if you have a heat pump and not ac over electric heat depending on type but most will be wired as
red to r jumped to rc y to yellow this turns on compressor g to green this turns on fan w to white or brown for electric heat strip or em heat o to orange reversing valve energised in cooling switches from heat to cool or orange to b energised in heating c blue for common
you will have to look at your indoor unit and out door unit to verify what collors the contractor used when they wired it up hope this helps
