On a/c voltage , if you have 2 terminals on a part , it won't matter which terminal the wire goes on . There are several red wires in that area ,so if it goes to the thermostat , it doesn't matter which terminal on the thermostat it goes on .

Just purchased this heater, the fan comes on but the heat is next to nothing. I checked the voltage at the elements and is is 235v the amperage on L1 and L2 is 20.8a. If I pull the fan wire off the relay,...


First off, 20.8 amps is approximately the amperage draw on a single element furnace (nominally 5 kw.) So if you have 3 or 4 elements, (15 or 20 kw capacity) the problem is the remaining elements are not being enrgized. Look to see if there is a W1 and W2 and even possibly a W3 terminal on the terminal strip. If so, and its not a heat pump, there should be thermostat wires on all three, indicating three stages of heat. To energize those properly, the thermostat should be a multi-stage heating thermostat providing W1 and W2 at the minimum. If you do not have a multi stage thermostat, and there are no wires on W2 and W3, jumper W1, W2 and W3 together and the furnace will come on at full capacity with the single stage thermostat.

If you DO in fact have wires on the additional W terminals, you more than likely have a heat sequencer that is not energizing the 2nd and possibly the third stage of heat. A three element furnace is typically called a 15kw furnace and the three elements should draw approximately 19 to 20 amps each. So when each stage draws in, the clamp on amprobe on the main incoming wires will correspondingly increase with each stage.

Also, some 15 and 20 kw furnaces require two circuits to supply the elements, and I have been on calls before where the second breaker was not turned on, and in one case, the second circuit wasn't even wired in from the electrical panel box.

DO NOT pull the wire off the fan while the heaters are energized as they will rapidly cycle on an overtemp device. Some actually have a "one time" thermal link that once melted render the respective element inoperable until that thermal link is replaced. They will melt very easily. An energized element MUST have airflow across it !!!

Hello -york electric furnace- no emergency heat- with heat pump


You may try looking at your thermostat first. Most Heat pump thermostats need a jumper wire from the E terminal on the subase of the stat to the aux or W1, or W terminals.Only jumper W to E or W to aux or W1 to E. If it has a jumper wire on the stat subase then check on the terminal board on the electric air handler. You will find a W and W2 terminals. Try jumping these with a thermostat wire also.

Is this a heat pump? Look in the thermostat. You should have something like the following.
Red wire to R terminal
Green wire to G terminal
Yellow wire to Y terminal
White wire to W or W1
Blue or Orange wire to the O or B terminal
Brown wire to C terminal.

Let me know what you have in the thermostat. The wire colors are not always the same.

Your original wiring configuration seems to indicate that you have an air conditioner (not heat pump) and either a gas or electric furnace. If this is the case you may need a different thermostat for your application.

Check for power to the unit. If power exists, check your low voltage. Do you have 24volts to R & C at your thermostat?

I have a honeywell thermostat model # th5220d1003-0636 & need to know what connections to make for gas forced air heat.


This is a Focus Pro 2 heat,2 cool thermostat. If you are connecting this to a single stage(1 heat) residential furnace then your connections are: At the thermostat the R and Rc therminals are internally connected so you can connect your R terminal wire from the furnace to the R terminal at the thermostat(this is your 24 volt supply for both heating and cooling. The W or W1 wire (heating) from your furnace you connect to the W1 terminal at the thermostat. The W2 wire from your furnace(if your furnace is a 2 stage furnace) you connect to the W2 terminal at the thermostat. The G wire from your furnace(indoor fan) you connect to the G terminal at the thermostat. The Y1 wire(cooling) from your furnace you connect to the Y1 terminal at the thermostat. The C wire(common or neutral) from the furnace you connect to the C terminal at the thermostat.

I am tying to install an RTH6400 5 in 1 thermostat but the colors of wires i have on my wall are RED, GREEN, BLUE AND BLACK, where as the book has RED , YELLOW,WHITE AND BLUE. please which do i connect to...


You need to open up the panel at your furnace(air handler) and find the terminal strip and see what your existing thermostat wires are connected to. Normally your red wire connects to the R terminal(24 volts), the yellow wire to the Y1 terminal(cooling), the white wire to the W1 terminal(heating), the green wire to the G terminal(indoor fan). You can use whatever color of wire you have existing, just make sure that the R,W1,Y1,and G wires at the furnace match the R,W1,Y1, and G terminal screws at the thermostat. Also make sure the power to the furnace(air handler) is turned off before you make any wiring connections at the thermostat or furnace.This is very important! If you don't and you short any wires to ground(especially the R wire) you will possibly ruin the system step down transformer or blow the low voltage fuse.

Wedge, one red wire to the right terminal of the heating element. The safety thermostat should of had a piggy back that fits over the left side terminal of the element and connected to one side of the safety thermostat. Other red to other side of safety thermostat, Orange from the timer (smaller connector) to the respective connection on jumper. Catriver.
