Question about Honeywell Focus 6300B 5-2 Days Programmable Thermostat Heater

1 Answer

I'm hooking up a new thermostat, Honeywell RTH2310. When I disconnected my old thermostat, I had a T, R, C, X, W, G, Y wires hooked up with the W wire also hooked into the X spot. On the instructions for the new thermostat, it said to only hook up the R, G, W, Y wires and tape everything else off and stuff back in the wall. I did that. So now I have Y, G, W, R wires hooked up (R wire is in the Rc postion and a jumper going from Rc to Rh). But when I went to turn on the A/C, all I get is heat. And if I turn on the heat, I still get heat. So I tried taking out the jumper between Rc and Rh, That didn't work. I tried moving the R wire to the Rh spot and put the jumper back in, That didnt work either. Am I doing something wrong here? Did that W wire hooked into the X position on my old thermostat have anything to do with this?? Any help is appreciated. Thanks

Make sure the stat you have is for a heat pump

    I have the same problem with both a gas heater downstairs and a heat pump upstairs. I can get the heat pump to give me cold air when I turn the thermostat to "heat". Obviously there is a mix up, but I have not seen anyone come up with a clear solution. bummer.

SOURCE: Honeywell RTH 221 Programmable Thermostat. Jumper missing

The proper way to do it would be to use a small piece of wire stripped at the ends. Then use a small amount fo solder on each end to connect RC to RH. Or use a small piece of solid(stiff) wire and strip the ends. The wrap the ends around the connector and crimp them to make contact. I would not use a paper clip. A paper clip is not designed to carry 24volt current and could melt.

SOURCE: Wiring problem?

Hi,
Yes to everything!!
You have it figured out!!
Just make SURE that the blue unused wire cannot touch any of the other wires, it will wreck your transformer in a split second.!

I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

Bought new thermostat model ct87k but old Honeywell model I have was hook up by black and white wire not red and white , so how do I hook up.


The two wire Honeywell T87 and CT87 is nothing but a switch in a control circuit. Wire color is not important at all. What is important is the TERMINAL DESIGNATION those wires are hooked to. Soooo....take the wire off of the sub base of the old stat terminal marked 'R' and attach it to the new sub base terminal marked 'R' and so on. Wire COLOR means nothing at all in your case.

I bought a Honeywell programmable thermostat RTH2310 to replace my 10 year old Honeywell thermostat. My old thermostat is a 4 wire system but also has a jumper from Y to 1. New system does not tell me what...


It depends on the type of thermostat you have.
Do you have a 4 wire or 5 wire T'stat?
The red jumper wire was for a 5 wire t'stat with 1 transformer, the red jumper actually should have been from R to 1.
So you need to trace the wires back to the furnace and make sure they go to the locations identified below.
if you have a 4 wire t'stat then you don't need that jumper, if you have a 5 wire t'stat then you do need that jumper but it should go from Rh to Rc.
4 Wire Termostat
R = Red One Side of 24 volt Transformer
G = Green Blower
Y = Yellow Cool
W = White Heat
5 Wire Thermostat
with one transformer for both units
Rc One Side of 24 volt Transformer
Rh Jumper Rc to Rh
G = Green Blower
Y = Yellow Cool
W = White Heat
t'stat?

New rth2310 themostat does not blow cool air


I don't believe you're going to get the new one to work -- sounds like it doesn't have enough control wires to operate your HVAC system. If it is designed to operate a 7-wire system, the documentation should show how to hook the 4-wire tstat so it will work.

Hooking up wires. where?


Connect one wire to R or Rh.
Connect the other wire to W.
This should allow you to use the thermostat with battery power.
