Question about Honeywell Programmable Thermostat Heater

1 Answer

I have purschased a HoneyWell non-programmable digital thermostat (focusPro5000) th5110d1006. It requires 6 wires. rc - r - y - c - w - g - I have central A/C heat pump electrical. 1 heat 1 cold & I think 1 transformer outside. The thermostat that I am replacing is a Janitol hpt-18-60. It has 7 wires. Mercury Label color of wire y yellow g green r red o orange w2 white e black c blue The thermostat works well, but I'm told focuspro5000 digital is better. I don't know how to match the 7 existing wires with the new Honewell thermostat. Rc & R has a factory installed jumper. Would you match the existing wires of the old thermostat with the new HoneyWell? Thanks in advance for your support. I do not wish to make a mistake here, could be costly. V/R, Raymond O.

    I have 7 wires; places for 6 on the honeywell. the slot for rc is not on the janitol. I don't know what corresponds to that. The Janitol has w2 and e slots that do not correspond to the honeywell. So, I'm lost here on the rc w2 e. What wires go with these? Thanks again for your help? I do not have the info I need to proceed.
    I have laid out the 7 slots color of wires and labels for the janitol. I have laid out the labels for the honeywell, but do not know which color wires go into rc on the honeywell or where the w2 and e wires go from the janitol into the honeywll.

Yes, the wiring should be the same for both thermostats. If you want, you can consult HoneyWell directly to confirm, but I am quite sure this is the case. It wouldn't hurt to confirm with HoneyWell, but you should be safe to proceed, their number is 1-800-328-5111 if you want to check.

    Yikes, that is a nasty one indeed, hmmm did you try contacting honeywell? They are much more versed with exactly what needs to go where. Without seeing it in person I am afraid to say for sure, I know what you are saying but am unsure which goes where. Let me know, it will be much easier for you to explain it in person...

I took my Honeywell focuspro 5000 non programmable thermostat off the wall to change the batteries and I put new batteries in it and back on the wall and now my air conditioner wont come on do you kno

I can only suggest that you check and make sure all of the pins are straight and not bent over from trying to align the back plate with the back of the thermostat. Ive done it and its easy to do if you are not very carefull.

I have a new honeywell thermosat rth2310 and the heat will not go on

Did you just install it????? If not check the batteries and replace them first....check for corroding also....if you just replaced the thermostat did you wire it correctly????/Wire for Wire???? If so if you have 4 wires in your thermostat you require a jumper wire between RH & RC....if you have 5 jumper is the Furnace power on???

Installing thermostat - extra wire?

you have to go down to your furnace and follow the thermostat wire 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
