Here is a link that will have wiring diagram it is for a similar model hunter. Also check your dip switch on the back of the stat to ensure it is set for gas (HG) or electric heat (HE) depending on your type of unit. Good Luck. Rule of thumb for most four wire systems is RED (power to stat) Yellow (Cooling) Green (Fan) White (heat)

SOURCE: Manual or directions

We have the same model. From the manual:
STEP 1: Slide the system switch to the HEAT or COOL position to program the corresponding system
STEP 2: Press PROGRAM to enter program mode. Heat or cool will be displayed on the LCD.
STEP 3: Press the UP or DOWN arrow. The Program hour and AM or PM indicator are flashing. Press to change the hour.
STEP 4: Press PROGRAM to change to the minute position. The current minute will be flashing. Press the UP or DOWN arrow to change the minute.
STEP 5: Press PROGRAM to change to the program temperature. The current temperature will be flashing. Press the UP or DOWN arrow to change the temperature.
STEP 6: Press PROGRAM again to move to the next program number. Repeat Steps 3-5 to change the remaining Weekday and Weekend Programs. [there are a total of 8 programs]
After cycling through all 8 programs, press PROGRAM again to return the display to normal. Press HOLD/RET at any time to exit the Program Mode.

TEMPORARY MANUAL OVERRIDE:
To temporarily change the current set temperature without affecting your program:

  • Press either ARROW and hold for about 1 second to enter the Manual Override Mode. When display flashes, you can release the key.
  • Press the ARROW to change to your desired Temperature
  • Press HOLD/RET to return to normal mode, or wait 15 sections for it to return automatically.
  • The current program number will flash to signify the Temporary Overide.
  • At the next program change time, the Temporary Override is cancelled, and the next program temperature becomes the setpoint temperature.
Hope this is what you need. God Bless.

"Hunter" says it all. Throw it out and buy a honeywell, robertshaw, or a white-rodgers. Hunter stats are notorious in the business as being problematic.

How to turn hunter thermastat model 44134 on


This question needs to be reclassified with aftermarket programmable home thermostats--not fans.

Hunter 44134

Getting the wiring connections correct to the terminals in the back plate is essential. Understanding better which colored wires do what functions for your particular brand and model of HVAC gear proves essential, too: "That's the rub!"

Unlike the brilliant and wisely-instituted electrical code, a sensible common "code" for HVAC thermostat wires doesn't exist--each brand, and many models represented by such brands--may have their own peculiar wiring color conventions. HVAC techs also have noted the increasing numbers of brands and models in the market these days, as well--thus, they too may resort to online help threads concerning such issues. (Certainly, the wiring conventions for heat pumps differs also from that of a conventional heat/air setup.)

Unfortunately, many of Youtube's demonstrations from HVAC pros prove merely general info concerning HVAC systems--these may prove somewhat useful: Being merely general info, they're often not specific enough always for particular units, though. (This proves keenly true concerning thermostat wiring.)

Always switch off the circuit breaker for your HVAC system before proceeding with wiring. My system is a Goodman heat pump--it uses a five-wire thermostat setup: The 44134 model from Hunter doesn't feature a terminal in the back plate for the "C" wire for that. (The blue wire from my Goodman heat pump is the "Comm" or "C" wire--that's very confusing in it's own way--the "B" terminal on the back plate for the 44134, and most other programmable thermostats, often is used with B-coded wires for other manufacturers' HVAC units--generally, "B" wires for such units are blue, as well--beware of reliance upon wiring colors!)

Hunter's FAQs clearly indicate that the "C" wire connection isn't always necessary, nor appropriate, for their thermostats--their 44134 is one isn't an exception. I twisted on a small, gray wirenut onto end of my blue Comm wire, further securing that better with electrical tape. (Simply wrapping the Comm wire well with electrical tape should prove also sufficient.)

Unless you know your system's peculiar wiring very well (that is, you're likely an HVAC tech), don't try to connect a Comm wire to another terminal on the back plate for the 44134--you'll likely ruin your thermostat (perhaps along with some other HVAC electronics): You may need then to get an HVAC tech out, after all!

As indicated above, don't merely "match" wiring colors (as a woman might for interior decorating or remodeling)!: This proves a continuing and overly common, comical mistake! Prove instead somewhat skeptical of thermostat wiring colors! A Biblical scripture applies: "Be as wise as serpents!" Take your time to get wiring connections right!

I've noted that the 44134 unit relies totally upon 2 AA batteries (not supplied in the package)--those must be in good working order and oriented correctly--otherwise, your thermostat and HVAC system won't function. Furthermore, the control unit may be easily removed from the back plate--thus allowing "easy-chair" configuration--again, HVAC and fan functions will halt immediately--the connected unit proves necessary for continued function.

Hunter also points out (on their packaging as well) that the 44134 (and, many other (if not all) Hunter thermostats) won't work with baseboard heating systems. Hunter's site FAQs prove too sparse--some may prove keenly useful, nonetheless.

I can't yet get my heat pump system to work with Hunter's "always on" fan switch setting--the rightmost "Auto/On" setting for that bottom-mounted switch at the right. Perhaps a jumper wire proves necessary in the back plate terminals--somewhere. (I've noted this also for Hunter's common 44277 model, as well.) I glean perhaps that somehow invoking the "G" terminal proves necessary. As usual, investigation proves warranted.

Definitely note the "Cool, Off, Heat" switch on the bottom left of the unit: Yeah, that's all too easy to forget. The Hunter 44134 doesn't provide any feature allowing automatic switching between heating and cooling--one must choose which function for the thermostat to control. If the switch is set to "Heat," cooling isn't possible--and, vice-versa.

For reference and troubleshooting, keep the manual and install instructions in a safe, memorable, and easily accessible place. Hunter does provide PDF manual versions online--installation instructions prove lacking online though--they're not in the user manual, either. Unfortunately, Hunter doesn't upgrade it's PDF manual versions.

I glean that Honeywell units may prove generally more easily configurable than Hunter units. Nonetheless, configuring Hunter units proves far from impossible, though. Configuring Hunter thermostats prove perhaps not as "intuitive.": The formal user manuals provided by Hunter thus may prove more keenly necessary for their thermostats' configuration.

Getting personal help online from Hunter may prove somewhat difficult (that may have changed recently). A few years ago, I called customer support: A woman answered my wiring question very satisfactorily. (I noted a jumper wire connect to the terminals of my old manual thermostat--she indicated that the jumper proves unnecessary in Hunter units.) Hunter phone support hours prove somewhat limited--they're similar to traditional office hours.

As with most programmable thermostats, the Hunter is a PRC (Chinese)-fabricated general-purpose consumer circuitry device. As such, it's (overly) intended to be wired and configured by the user to provide correct function for many particular and compatible HVAC brands/models. Given the particular installation that may perhaps prove difficult. Given the general-purpose nature of such thermostats, a simple installation sheet of instructions can't always offer sufficient and correct answers.

Without the particulars of your HVAC system and thermostat wiring, it proves very difficult in some cases for Fixya and other DIY sites to provide correct answers. (Most DIYers ultimately do succeed with install and use of programmable thermostats, though.)

"Proust" thanks you for getting this far!: Perhaps some of my particular solutions here do prove useful to some of you--more nit-picking, detailed work and anecdotes (intended for specific brands and models) needs to be offered in this area....

I am not from Hunter. But I will see if I can help you. What kind of heating system do you have? You say that you have a heating system & heat pump. Not sure what you mean by that. Do you have something like a heat pump with fossil fuel as back up?

Programmable thermostat


Basically, your going to press either of the arrows until it flashes, or about 1 second.

Then you set the temperature you desire and then press and hold the HOLD button until HOLD is displayed in the display.

Congrats, your on a permanent hold.




Then your next step would be to go get a real thermostat, install it on the wall, and then throw that piece of **** Hunter out the window as hard as you can.


The biggest problem with the Hunter stats is that they are cheap. On top of that, the programmable stats have a factory set program that cannot be simply deleted. Its always there, no matter what you do. And it makes for hassles when it goes back to factory settings and you either have to painstakingly re-program it or deal with the factory settings.

Here is a link to the Hunter manual.

I would recommend to you the Honeywell line-up. The Visionpro 8000 series is a very nice and user friendly thermostat. Its the same one I have on my wall. Very easy to use and understand. Its touchscreen and the screen can be locked to avoid unwanted use of the system.

Switching old thermostat to Hunter thermostat model 44155c


By describing the wires from your new thermostat and your old one, it sounds like your new thermostat is not compatible with your system. If you have seven wires now, then you more than likely have a heat pump system and you have to get a thermostat that is compatible with this type of system. Then you will have the connections you need.

If the Hunter thermostat is 3 year old or more you will need to replace the thermostat. I have serviced HVAC systems for 20 years and see this problem all the time with hunter thermostats.
