    I have the Honey Well 6300B, but I manually have to reset the circuit breaker for the heat to come on each time it runs.

    The typical wires are G Y W R, I just matched them up based on what I copied from the previous. not sure if i did something wrong.

    Could you please help?

    Thanks in advance.

The thermostat is a low voltage circuit (24 volts) most of the newer heating systems have a fuse for the low voltage controls. If you are having to re-set the high voltage circuit breaker, then you have something else wrong. When does the breaker trip? while its running or after it shuts off?

You are on the right track, you can hook the same 4 wires to the new thermostat without the jumper you had on the old thermostat. The jumper wire that is on the new thermostat can stay with no problems. Just connect the wires to the same terminals on the new one and your good to go!

No heat after installing honeywell thermostat H8110U

hook up the blue wire in the furnace cabinet where the blower section and the other thermostat wires are connected to the furnace. the thermostat you have uses a common wire from the thermostat to the furnace and this needs to be hooked up in the furnace otherwise you will have the problem you are having.
