Re: thermostat

What were each wire connected to on the white rodgers? The connectors on the white rodgers should have markings. Tell me this and I can tell you how to wire your new stat. This hunter will not work with multi stage heat I need to know what was connected to what on the white rodgers to know what type of unit. Thanks Kevin

I am replacing a White-Rodgers thermostat with a Hunter 44155C and dont know where to connect the wires. I have white, red, green, blue, and yellow wires and none are labeled as to what they are.

The Yellow wire is for cooling, the white is for heating, the red is for power, the green is for blower fan, the blue is your common wire, all you should have to do is color code the wires to the thermostat. The thermostat should have the colors labeled R,W1,G,Y,B or C for common if it's wired correctly at the Air Handler or evaporator. The blue wire should go to B, or C.

Changing a White-Rodgers 1F56-444 to a Hunter 44155c digital.

The W- terminal is for the HEAT RELAY.
Connect the brown and white wire to the WB terminal which is heat relay of the Hunter thermostat.

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.

3 Month baby and need help hooking up thermostat ASAP

The wire colours mean nothing. If your old one didn't have letters or you already disconnected it, you will have to go to the furnace. Under one of the panels there will be a control board to which the thermostat wires connect and this might have the letters printed on it. Trace them back and connect them appropriately.

If you have a furnace that is like mine (a single-stage natural gas one), chances are that R is +24V, C is common, W is heat call, and G is the blower. Y is generally cooling. The furnace could be turned on by connecting R, W, and G together, I suppose, if the above doesn't work... but it won't shut off automatically.

How to wire hunter 44155

Go to the hunter web site. They will have the proper wiring diagrams on the site. If you cannot do that pick up a basic wiring book at your local electric parts supplier. the place you got the thermostat would be a good start. I do know that menards has some books in the electric area that would be a great help to you. You also will need to be sure that the thermostat is able to handle both air and heat. many only do heat. If this does not help let me know and I will try and get more information to you
