W and W2 wiring on old thermostat...where do they go on the new thermostat?


It depends on the equipment you are connecting the thermostat to. If you have a heat pump, the thermostat must be wired differently than if you have separate heating and cooling equipment. If you have a two-stage or modulating furnace (or boiler), the w and w2 wires will conect for heating, and the y and g wires will connect to the air conditioner. Naturally, some configuring must be done with the new thermostat so that it acts correctly. w-w2-wiring-old-thermostat-go-new-u40lsvyytnuesyuv3fbafhtd-1-0.jpg

Need help installing a Hunter 44277 thermostat. Instruction manual here: http://www.hunterfan.com/Support/Manuals-and-Parts-Guides/ Wires I have are as follows: Blue: C Black: E White: W2 Yellow:...


Your wires Hunter thermostat
Blue C
White E
Black E
Yellow Y
Orange O
Red R
Green G

Since i don't know what brand heat pump you have, i am assuming you have a cool active reversing valve, therefore the orange wire will connect to the "O" terminal. If you have a heat active reversing valve the orange wire would be connected to the "B" terminal. You will know it is wrong when you turn on the system in cooling mode and it blows hot or warm air. Another way to know quickly is to go out to your outside unit when you turn it on in the cooling mode and feel of the suction line(the large copper line coming out of your condensing unit) and see if it is cool. If it is, great. If it is hot then you would have to switch the orange wire to the "B" terminal.
Hope this helps.

Installing thermostat - extra wire?


you have to go down to your furnace and follow the thermostat wire ...it connects to a terminal strip or fan centre...the color doesn;t really matter...installers mix and match all the time....look at the furnace wiring and mark it down...Red on "R"...Green on "Y" whatever it is...and connect it accordingly upstairs...if you only have 4 thermostat wires downstairs you will need a jumper wire between RH and RC...if you have 5 wires you will see 2 wires on "R" at the furnace.,...and connect either to RH and RC at the thermostat

A duo therm thermostat (p/n 3105058) was removed because it would not operate the air conditioner/heater in a firan fireside camper. it was knocked loose from the wall damaging it.the thermostat is for use...


a. Remove the cover of the thermostat.
b. Connect the RED wire from the air conditioner
to the “RC” terminal on the thermostat.
c. Connect the “YELLOW” wire from the air conditioner
to the “Y” terminal on the thermostat.
d. Connect the “BLUE” wire from the air conditioner
to the “H” terminal on the thermostat.
e. Connect the “ORANGE” wire from the air conditioner
to the “G” terminal on the thermostat.
f. Push the thermostat wires into hole in wall and
fill excess hole with insulation.
g. Mount thermostat base to the wall with screws
provided.
h. Check all thermostat wires on base to ensure
they are completely clear of the bimetal coil of
the thermostat. Adjust if necessary.
i. Replace thermostat cover.
If nothing operates on the air conditioner, remove the
return air grille assembly and verify the red, orange, yellow
and blue wires are properly connected (red-to-red,
orange-to-orange, etc.).
Next, disconnect the red wires and check for 12 volt
DC between the red wire from roof section and the orange
or blue wire from roof section. If no voltage received,
refer to Section F2. If voltage is received, the
problem lies with the thermostat or thermostat wires.
Next, disconnect all 4 wires (red, orange, yellow and
blue) from the thermostat. With the thermostat set on
COOL mode, FAN mode set on AUTO and HIGH, and
temperature selector set lower than the room temperature. Check for continuity between terminal RC (red wire)
and terminal G (orange wire); and RC (red wire) and
terminal H (blue wire). If continuity is achieved on each,
proceed with the next step.
Set fan switch to LOW. Continuity should NOT be present
between terminal RC and Terminal H, but present between
the other terminals (Y & G) and terminal RC.
If all of the previous checks are good, the thermostat is
good, do not replace it. If any one of the previous checks
are not correct, replace the thermostat.

Heat strip install


What color wire is connected to the "Y" terminal on the thermostat.
If the unit you are connecting is a heat pump A/C unit the orange wire is for the heating mode. Normally the "Y" terminal on the thermostat. "R" terminal on the thermostat is the power to the thermostat, "W" terminal is for heating, "Y" is for cooling, and "G" terminal is for fan operation. At the condensing unit for cooling the brown and yellow wires would normally be for the cooling.
