Carrier Infinity Control Thermostat SYSTXCCUID01-B

I'm finally replacing my old but expensiveHoneywell Thermostat for the Carrier Infinity Thermostat that matches my Carrier Infinity 96% Furnace Model 58MVP 120.

It should be a no-brainer - 4 wires to connect. I turned off the furnace circuit breaker (15 amps) and uninstalled the Honeywell and reinstalled the Carrier thermostat. Green wire to Green thermostat connection, Blue wire to Yellow connection, White to White etc, and Red to Red etc. The one concern was on the thermostat it has a yellow connection, rather than the blue wiring coming out of the furnace.

Is there some special way to "turn on" these carrier thermostats? The installation and setup documentation that came with the box doesn't mention anything specific, except that there is a System On/Off switch.

The problem is the display screen never lights up - it remains dark. I've depressed the On/Off switch. I've held the On/Off switch for 20 seconds - nothing. Down in the furnace room the light in the viewer in the bottom right of the furnace base is on and constant- no blinking. The fan appears to be cycling through and then shutting off.

What to I need to do to get this Carrier thermostat up and running?
20 amp service? Secret handshake?

Thanks for all your help.

Your old stat is wired for a traditional thermostat and not a communication stat like the new infinity you have. There is a module plug on the furnace board that will need to be connected to the new thermostat for it to work. The wires that are wired now are from a terminal strip inside the furnace. Please contact your local Carrier dealer. They may be able to get that harness for you

All connections at the furnace,t-stat and condensing unit have to be wired up to the 4-wire connector.Your honeywell was hooked up to the standard contoller connections.

You need a ground or common to operate the digital display, so five wires are required. it will connect to the c terminal in the t stat and the c or 24v common connection on the furnace control board!

Re: Carrier Infinity Control Thermostat SYSTXCCUID01-B

This is common for the cooling wire to be either blue or yellow. It is the same thing. You connected it right; the white to white (heat) green to green (fan) yellow to yellow or blue (cooling) and red is the 24v. Did you make sure there is a jumper from RC to RH? Usually the display on these digital thermostats is powered by a couple of batteries. Some use power from the 24v system. It will have a C connection on the thermostat and will need another wire from the low voltage board for this to work though. Check the installation instructions for this feature. On these thermostats, check the back of the first piece for a gas/electric pin is set for your system. Also the low voltage setting is right also.

I have the carrier infiniti system. When my thermostat reaches the set temperature it doesn't always shut off. I shut off the main control to let it reset. It works for a while and then it starts

Carrier Infinity system is a variable speed unit that will just slow down as it approaches set point. Unless it overshoots the set temperature (you have it set on 72 and the temperature keeps rising above 72) this just sounds like normal operation.

Carrier infinity control SYSTXCCUID01-B sensor communication erro

There should be a little black sensor bulb outside either on the unit normally under the electrical panel or inside it. It sound like the wire has come off or been disconected. It needs that on to properly run. Your control is trying to communicate with the outdoor unit and can not.

Call your local company and check the warranty status on the Infinity UI it should still be under warranty and get a replacement otherwise it could run you a couple hundred dollars
