I have an Amana heat pump package and i have a chronotherm 3 thermostat and i replaced it with vision pro TH8000 thermostat, and the auxiliary heat doesn't work. My old thermostat wire colors were C-Black, R-Red, Y1-Yellow, W1-White, E-Orange, W2-Blue, and G-green. At the pump thermostat wires were C-Black, G-green, Y-yellow, R-red, W-white, W1-blue, and E-orange. Amana Heat pump Model PHA 36 B0002A .

Re: No Auxiliaty heat with new thermostat
The Vision Pro is a great t-stat and I have installed many of them with great results. I am wondering though if it is set up correctly. Did you go in and make sure that it is set for heat pump and for 2 stage heating? Look on the instructions how to get into the advance installer options. Go through that meanu and make sure that everything ig set correctly for your type of heating system and that it is set for 2 stage heating. From what you have here and I can tell the wiring should be okay that is why I think that it is in the t-stat programming.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Are you talking about a pro 5000 Thermostat??? if so then NO it will not work.With this stat you do not have a temperature lock on the heat pump. Say you don't want the heat pump to run below 25 degrees. it won't shut the heat pump. And you don't want the heat pump to run at the same time as the furnace. With the Pro 8000 3 heat and 2 cool thermostat you can lock out the heat pump at 25 degrees outside an turn the furnace on. You will have to install an outdoor thermostat hooked up to the pro 8000 it usually comes with the stat. Honeywell products.
R= power in
O= heatpump reversing valve
C= common used for clock on chronotherm
Usually its pretty streight forward wire for wire. Unless you have a heatpump. The thermostat has to be heatpump compatable. And I ll usually use the 8000 for this. The w and y jumper may not be necesary on the new thermostat as the new one should do it internally once programed as a heatpump thremostat. At least thats how the 5000 and 8000 sreies work. So imagine the 7000 would be the same. You may also have to program the reversing valve operation not all manufactuers do it the same . Some valves have to be powered for heat while others have to be powered for cooling. Good luck
I don't think the Amana ASZ14 Heat Pump has a reset switch, but you can still reset it by resetting the power (when it's not running... turn your thermostat OFF first).
To reset the power, locate your circuit breaker box. There should be a double-breaker for the Heat Pump and another double-breaker for the Air Handler. Turn them both off for at least 2-3 minutes. Then flip them back on and turn your thermostat back ON.
You're thermostat may also have a RESET button that you can push. I have to reset mine every time I change the batteries in it.
Honeywell Chronotherm thermostats have always had a great reputation for longevity and reliability. They are also much more user-friendly than the other types of programmable thermostats out there. Make sure you get one that states 2-stage heat, heat pump. T8611G will offer that for you. There are many out there that claim to be suitable for heat pumps; however, they do not have the ability to utilize your auxiliary heat strips (2nd stage of heat).
Before you attempt to replace, be sure to write the wire colors and their corresponding terminal marking on a sheet of paper........of your old thermostat. This is very important to make it easier to hook up the new thermostat. Also, before you disconnect the wires, be sure to shut off the circuit breaker to your air handling unit. You can ensure you have the right one by putting the fan switch in "ON". When you turn off the right breaker, the fan will stop running. :-)
I hope you find this information to be very helpful to you. Please don't forget to leave a rating.
A couple of things... First your furnace should be 2nd stage on a 2 stage thermostat and if the heat pump don't keep up your furnace should be coming on anyway...If you get a Honeywell Vision Pro 8000 series thermostat for 2 stage heat pump operation and an outdoor sensor, you can have the thermostat shut down the heat pump and start the furnace at what ever temperature you decide...
Secondly, you have a problem with the defrost cycle on your heat pump(s) If they are frosting up that bad at 40 degrees than the defrost is not working on them. If they are hookup up right, every fours hours or so they will go into A/C mode and heat the oudoor coil up to melt the ice off of them. The furnace should be heating while that is happening. Sounds like they really don't know what they are doing when it comes to heat pumps...
I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!
RC & RH JUMP WITH R FROM AH & CU C/U - A/H - T R - R - R = 24V C - C - C = COMMON Y - - - Y = COOLING G - G = FAN B O\B = REVERSING VALVE - HEAT make sure the stat is set up for heat pump Not sure what b or d are. i would double check the schematic on the condenser for the reversing valve wire.
Whats' so hard is the Honeywell thermostat has a built in 1@ differential. It is not adjustable. You might ask your installer about a time delay relay installed in the furnace to break the thermostat heat wire (usually white wire). Most time delay relays are 90 seconds. But that might be enough to reduce the furnace cycling.
it sounds like it is time to repalce the stat, auto is set to allow the fan to run only when the heat or a/c is on, the switch for heat and cool will select either, and the temperature lever should allow contact for the bulbs to bring on the desired component. there are no replaceable parts on a thermostat, or I would try to walk you through replaceing them. good luck.. I prefer the honeywell vision pro or the white rodgers 9500 series stats
The Chrono Therm 3 and 4's were some of the worst products that honeywell has EVER put out. I would suggest switching to the Vision Pro 8000, please consult your local HVAC company for more information regarding the change over.
