Wiring a Honeywell VisionPRO TH8320U1008 Thermostat

I have a Florida Geo heat pump 2 stage with no aux.heat. It is controlled by a Zone Perfect Two-Zone Unit hooked up to two Totaline P274-0300-C thermostats. Everything works great this way.
I was talked into buying a Honeywell VisionPRO TH8320U1008 to replace the Totaline on zone-1. They said the Honeywell can be wired for any system. Anyway, I can't take it back and I can't get it to work properly.
The Totaline is wired as follows BLK-0/W2/B RED-R BRN-C BLU-Y/Y2 YL-Y1 GRN-G WHT-W/W1. A total of 7 wires hooked up.
The Honeywell only calls for 6 wires to be hooked up in the 2H/2C Heat Pump mode with [no auxiliary heat] I hooked the wires up as follows BLU-Y2 RED-R/RC Note, R+RC are jumpered. BLK-0/B YL-Y GRN-G BRN-C. I stored the WHT wire. Wired this way the heat pump would work, but would not control the reversing valve when when calling for heat.
The Florida Geo heat pump has the the reversing valve energized in the cooling mode.
Any help with this problem will be greatly appreciated.

I recently installed a Honeywell RTH6350D to replace a 2 year old LUX and can get everything to work but the heat(reason for replacing the LUX). Works sometimes but not consistantly. Have the common red(R)...

R represents power supply for the heat system.
RC represents power supply for cooling system.
G represents fan (neutral).
W represents heat system.
Y represents cooling system.
Y2 represents 2nd stage cooling.
W2 represents 2nd stage heating.
AUX represents heat pump.
Try calling 1-800-468-1502.
Their english is "REALLY BAD"!!!

Need wiring diagram for Honeywell RCT8100

The old thermostat has a second stage heat which is W2. The new one doesn't have second stage heat.
The wiring your describing on the old thermostat is telling me you have a heat pump with second stage heat and the new thermostat is for air conditioning only. You will need to get a thermostat for a heat pump.

I am installing a Honeywell T841 onto existing RGYW wiring. The fan kicks on, but I notice the air conditioner is not running. Were one or more of these supposed to go on the W2 or B terminals? Thanks!

Need to have more numbers in model number to be sure There's about 30 T841 t'stats and some are1, 2, and 3 stage heat pump and some 1, 2, and 3stage AC.
If you have
R to transformer
G to fan relay
Y to contactor in outdoor unit
W to Gas valve
You have the thermostat wired right.
Depending on the T'stat B could be the common side of the transformer or 2nd stage heat.
W2 terminal are for 2nd stage heat
You need to put the thermostat on cool and lower the setting to bring on the cooling. Then go outside and see if you have power to the outdoor unit and 24 volts to the contactor coil.

Honeywell Thermostat

Make sure G from indoor unit goes to G on thermostat for fan continous fan, if that doesn't work and you have 24 volts to R and C then the t'stat is bad.
For 2nd stage heat or aux.heat, on the indoor unit you need to make sure the wire W2 from the indoor unit goes to W2 on t'stat.
You don't need any wires from W1on the indoor unit to W1 at the t'stat because with a York heat pump Y1 is the contactor which turns the compressor on and you will get 1st stage heat, and for cooling the t'stat will also bring on O which is the (reversing valve) or cooling changeover relay for the cooling mode.
C = common usually black wire
R = hot usually red wire
Y or Y1 = contactor
W1 = 1st stage heat not needed for heat pump
W2 = Aux. heat indoor heat
G = fan
O = Cooling changeover relay
B = Heating changeover relay
L = System monitor
E = Emergency heat relay

Thermostat Wiring: W2? E? Where to connect?

You have a heat pump. You need a thermostat for "Heat pump with Electric back-up heat". Make sure the 'stat has either an "aux" (auxilliary heat) or an "E"(Emergency heat) terminal. The wiring instructions will be provided with the thermostat.

Heat pump auxiliary heat does not turn on

Turn up your outside thermostat in the outside unit.
You should have about 3 degrees difference in one stage to the next. So I would change the thermosat with one that has three stages of heat.

Thermostat says ''Aux heat on'' and buzzes when we turn on heat

You most likely have a heat pump, the aux heat (usually electric) comes on anytime the room temperature is 4 degrees below the thermostat setting. Does the buzz go off when the aux heat lite goes out? If the aux heat does not shut off then the primary heater (heat pump) is not putting out enough heat to satisfy the thermostat. I need a little more info. Do you have a heat pump? Is it working?
