Re: heat pump thermostat replacement

It sounds like your reversing valve energizes the opposite from how you wired it at the thermostat. Check the instructions.

What do you do when the face of the thermostat is broken off and I cannot see what any of the settings are? It's a Honeywell programmable thermostat.

most likely you will have to replace thermostat...if you go to they may still have the thermostat but it is possible the stat has become obssolete and will require a totally different one... for the time being if you need heat you can manually jump it but it will not shut off until you take the jumper wire back off... jump out the "r" terminal and the "w" terminal and should bring on the heater until you can get it replaced... if you have any problems with installation repost with brand and heat pump or straight cool one of us will help you out....good luck to you..

I have a Trane heat pump, model #TWP060C300A and a Trane air handler, model #TWE065E130A. Heat pump is 5.0 ton, split system. Air handler has a variable speed motor and a 20Kw 3-phase auxiliary heat strip....

Honeywell Chronotherm thermostats have always had a great reputation for longevity and reliability. They are also much more user-friendly than the other types of programmable thermostats out there. Make sure you get one that states 2-stage heat, heat pump. T8611G will offer that for you. There are many out there that claim to be suitable for heat pumps; however, they do not have the ability to utilize your auxiliary heat strips (2nd stage of heat).
Before you attempt to replace, be sure to write the wire colors and their corresponding terminal marking on a sheet of paper........of your old thermostat. This is very important to make it easier to hook up the new thermostat. Also, before you disconnect the wires, be sure to shut off the circuit breaker to your air handling unit. You can ensure you have the right one by putting the fan switch in "ON". When you turn off the right breaker, the fan will stop running. :-)

I hope you find this information to be very helpful to you. Please don't forget to leave a rating.

I'm replacing an old thermostat with a new Honeywell RTH6300B programmable. I have propane heat and central AC. My old thermostat has a black, a red and a yellow leads with no ID on the old thermostat wall...

Open up the propane furnace and see what color wires are hooked to the gas valve or circuit board. If it has a circuit board, note which color is on the R terminal and W terminal, Connect the the thermostat the same way. Most likely the yellow wire powers your A/C so you can hook that one to the Y terminal.

Want to replace manual thermostat with programmable.

you can use a 5 wire heat pump thermostat.

Must be heatpump thermostat
red is 24 volt power
white is aux/emergency heat these usually will need to be jumped together
Green is fan
yellow is compressor contactor
blue is reversing valve
you just don't have a common so some thermostats will not work.
get one with batteries

Installing Honeywell RTH7000 - I have too many wires!

check to see if the B terminal is on the new t-stat if connect to it , but this terminal refers to heat pumps and is normally use to energize the reversing valve on the outside unit and not used on ac units , but normally the tag O/B is the same terminal on therostats
