Thermostat has stopped working

How do I uninstall the old thermostat? It is connected at the top with a silver coil, then the thermostat box itself, and at the bottom the romex is coming out. I cannot get the old box open to take it off. Can you help?

Re: thermostat has stopped working

My experience is you need to use a flat head screw driver to seperate the top housing from the bottom. You will have a groove on each side that has to pop free before it slides out into two pieces.

So far, I cannot locate a wiring diagram for an installation. However, this is a single phase "shaded pole" motor.

For a single speed, shaded pole motor, there are only two power wires. For a dual speed motor, a third wire provides a second speed. One wire will be one side of the motor coil(s)...connected to the white power wire. The other wires are the opposite side of one or two motor coils, connected to the black power wire or through a thermostat. A thermostat is simply a temperature operated switch. An additional wire may (should) be a green "grounding" wire.

Specification Sheet from Grainger.

Installation manual.

I just bought the Honeywell Quietset 8-Speed tower fan (black and silver on top). I installed it correctly but the fan is extremely loud and squeaky and can hear the inside pole that rotates the fan, even...

STOP! Before you take anything apart, turn fan upside down and find the large plastic "screw"(cord passes through it)that secures the fan to the pedestal. Is same color as unit. Loosen it and see if squeaking stops. Worked for me!

Mine was driving me nuts and I was prepared to return it to store.

The Honeywell LR69071 (old) has 7 wires connected labeled (X W2 R O Y G E) The Hunter 44860 (new) has wire connections for ( Y1 Y2 W2 G RH RC/R B W1 E O C L) What connects with what? There is also a jumper...

Wiring on the old one, "X", probably a brown wire will not be used on the new stat. If it's a blue wire, this may be your common. "E" and "W2" probably wired together with a white wire, this controls electric heat. "R" with a red wire, this is 24 volt power. "O" is an orange wire, this is the reversing valve. "Y" is a yellow wire, this is the contactor. "G" is a green wire, this is the blower. This pretty accurate? On the new stat, the jumper should be connecting "RH" to "RC/R", leave it in and wire the "R" from your old one to either terminal. White from the old one will go to the "E" of the new one. If your electric heat doesn't work after the install, you may need to jumper the "W1" and "W2" with the "E". "O" wires to "O". "Y" from the old one wires to the "Y1" of the new. "G" wires to "G". "C" on the new one is common. Usually a blue wire goes here. If "X" on the old one was blue, plug it into the "C". If it was brown, I'd suggest not using a common, and installing batteries. Hope this helps.

Forgot to mark wires before removing old thermostat...

You can take a look at the blower unit where the wires from the thermostat connect to. Usually they're labeled on the circut diagram on the front panel, or on the board itself.

This site may also be of some assistance.

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.

Reconnect fan

There are four wires comming out from a ceiling fan. Check it. Isolate it to get four terminals. Check for continuty. In fact, they are pairs of coil inside the fan. As there are two coils inside the fan, you have two pairs of termials. After indetifying each pair, connect one pair directly to supply. Another pair is to be connected in series with a capcitor provided in your fan. After connection in seris, you will again have two terminals not connected to any point. Again connect it to supply (ie. LT supply viz 230 volts or 110 volts as per specification of fan). The fan will run. Now you have to check speed and proper direction of running. If speed is less, then only interchnage the coil connected with capacitor. If direction of running is opposite, interchange terminals of any one of the coil with supply. Write back me againg if you get any problem/confusion

Fan stopped working

It's possibly a lubrication problem. I can't seem to keep mine lubricated, so good luck with yours.
