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.

Make sure you do not have a jumper between the red and the white. Also make sure the wire is not hanging out from behind the screws. If the heat stayes on no matter what you do. The red wire has to be touching the white somewhere.
The red is your 24v supply to the thermostat
The white is what sends the 24v to the heat side of unit.
Just a thought. If the thermostat has a O/B pin or switch on the back. Make sure it's on O. It should only be ob B if it's a Trane, American Standard or Payne.

Blue (C) or sometimes (B) should be your common wire. Look at your schematics and locate common. Your Brown wire is (E) and is emergency heat, white wire (W) is Auxilary Heat, green wire (G) is fan relay, red wire (R) is power, yellow wire (Y) is Cooling and orange wire (O) is reversing valve.

Changing thermostat matching wires trouble

Brown my friend is for the 4 way valve solenoid, that is if you have a heat pump, ( it uses freon for heating instead of natural gas) perhaps you got the wrong thermostat, if you have a brown you need a thermostat for a heat pump, a regular thermostat is not going to have a brown connection.
