Sounds like the compressor is or a electrical component directly linked with the cooling operation/ outdoor unit running.
Possible short to earth....

Have a Lenox HP13 outside, and CB26 Air Handler. Just changed out the Thermostat to a Honeywell RTH7500 programable. Atached the Red to R, Orange to O/B, Yellow to Y, Green to G, Blue to C, and White to...


Hi, sounds like this is a Lennox heat pump. On the stat wiring it looks as though you wired it correctly except on the reversing valve terminals o/b, the orange wire should be on the o terminal only as the reversing valve is energized through in the cooling mode and will default to heat if the compressor fails. Make sure you have no control wires at the new stat that may have touched and blew the 3 to 5 amp fuse in you air handler. You can go to the air handler and see if the circuit board has this auto type fuse and a control board I believe it will as it may have blown. Just sounds like this is a control voltage problem as this is all you have been working with is the change out of the stat. Keep in mind that this new stat also has a built in time delay that will keep the unit off for several minutes.Check this fuse though. If you have excess to a voltage tester, you could check for 24 volts at the stat by setting it on its lowest ac volt setting and check across R to G or Common and it needs to read 24 or more volts. If not, its either a control volt 3/5 amp fuse or a faulty transformer. You say you had the breakers off, so if you happened to stripped the wires at the sub-base and the R or hot has touched the C terminal it could have taken out the transformer or just a fuse. This is where you need to look first is the control board or control module. Please keep me posted so I can get you up and running. Make sure you have the stat programmed correct also. Please let me know.

Change out problem


AIR HANDLERS DO NOT ENERGIZE REVERSING VALVE , THE THERMOSTAT DOES THE JOB THROUGH THE O  OR B TERM TO THE OUTSIDE UNIT. IF YOU HOOK UP TO O TERM AND HEAT COMES ON WHEN YOU SET AC ON THEN SWITCH TO B TERM ON STAT. YOU SHOULD HAVE O TERM ON CONDENSER OUTSIDE AND YOU USE ORANGE WIRE IF YOU HAVE ONE. IF NOT USE UNUSED WIRE IN 6 WIRE STAT HARNESS.

3amp fuse is blowing.


Disconnect the yellow wire from the thermostat and tape off the end. Turn the power back on. If the fuse blows, it is not in your wire nor the compressor contactor. If the fuse does not blow, turn off the power, reconnect the wire, and replace the fuse. Then, disconnect the wire from the compressor contactor and tape it off. Turn the power back on. If the fuse blows, it will eliminate the compressor contactor coil and will likely be a "short" in the wire itself. The yellow wire goes from your T-stat to your air handler and from your air handler, it goes to the oudoor unit's compressor contactor.

Have you tried removing the RH wire connected to the thermostat and try it ? This might rule out furnace as short in system. If it does the same, put RH- (heat) back on and try removing RC-(cool) , if it doesn't pop the fuse, you may have isolated the problem.?
