Question about Heating & Cooling

Open Question

I have the dayton thermostat, model # 2E466. two wire system that I'm replacing. The wires coming out of the wall are not color coded. But I know how the wires were connect to this unit. My question is, which side of the wire plate represent the heat relay/ or valve (W) & which side represents the heat 24V/ Millivolt supply (Rh)? Thanks.....James

Hi, Sounds like you have a short in the control circuit to me. Turn off all power going to the unit. Write down or otherwise mark the wires leaving the control board going to the thermostat. Remove them from the control board. Replace the fuse. Turn power back on and see if the fan still runs. If it does, check and or replace the heat limit switch that brings the fan on during the heat cycle. It may just need adjusted. If the fuse blows, I would think that the control board is probably bad. If it doesn't blow, Remove the thermostat. Leaving all thermostat wires open check them with an Ohm meter. There should be no continuity between them. Twist all the wires together at one end and ohm them again at the other end. You should have complete continuity on all wires. If the wiring checks out, down power the unit. Double check your wire colors and rewire the control board. With all wires open at the thermostat, turn the power back on. Touch the RED wire to the YELLOW wire. The Condensing unit should come on. Touch the RED wire to the GREEN wire. The fan should come on. Touch the RED wire to the WHITE wire. The heat should come on. Down power the unit. Replace the thermostat. Test unit. If the fuse has lasted ok but blows now it is either wired wrong at the Thermostat or the thermostat is bad. I hope I have helped. NOTE: If you can not understand these instructions. Call a licensed Heating / Air conditioning company. kstfas

SOURCE: Manual Thermostat replcaement with Programmable Digital unit.

Hopefully there are markings on the old t-stat as to what terminal is what.
on the honeywell 8000 use the heat pump labeling and then the standard wiring would be
R- red
AUX-white
Y- yellow
B- O/B
C- black
G- green
There should not be a bare wire, it probably just has the insulation stripped back way too far.
You should probably open the furnace and compare the terminal label in the furnace to the wire color. normally yellow and blue pass through the furnace and are wire nutted to wires going to the outdoor unit. In the furnace the white wire will connect to the w or w1 terminal. also, you will need to set the Honeywell stat to have the following parameters.
170-7
190-1
200-0
other parameters that I did not specify, you may read the manual and make your own decision but I recommend factory settings for the other parameters

What wires coming from the theromstat conect to which wires coming out of the wall


suggest this: hire a technician to fix it for you. you would need the wiring diagram for the thermostat and to find which wires go where in the wall.

this is a task that is normally beyond the ability of an owner. It requires some technical knowledge of thermostat wiring, as well as using a voltmeter.

you might post an ad to locate another owner of your model RV, then ask them to pull the thermostat off the wall and take some pictures to send to you - showing the wiring connected.

Can't match color wires to thermostat codes. I'm replacing my thermostat and I have 6 wires coming out of the wall but can't match colors to proper connections on thermostat. I have an electric heat pump.


Make sure you have a heat pump thermostat. Standard stat wire and stat wiring are as follows.
  • R to red
  • W to white
  • Y to yellow
  • G to green
  • O/B to orange
  • C to blue or W2 to blue
Your wire colors and stat brand and model number would be more helpful if this does not clarify. Repost with additional information and I would be glad to help further.

Have dayton model 2e215 mercury thermostat and trying to replace with programmable. How do I get the old one off of the wall. It looks like the mercury vial sits on a cover over the wires but I cant see...


There are either 2 or 3 small screws which hold the thermostat to the wall plate.
Remove these and the thermostat will come off to reveal the wall plate with the wiring connections.

Where to hook up wires?


First, take the old thermostat off the wall.

there should be different colored wires coming out of the wall still connected to the old thermo.

on the new thermo, there might be a wire color chart in the instructions or on the inside of the new thermo.

You should be able to line up the colors and install them that way. let me know if you have any other problems

Thermostat not firing central heating


the stat works using a bi metalic strip so that click you here is making a contact and telling the boiler to call for heating so if you getting no click you need a new room stat. Replace with same model and note the wiring most stats only use 2/3 wires depending on system

Wiring diagram for a Dayton thermostat


Contact Dayton on the internet for this problem. The diagram should be available on their site. Or they will give you a number for customer care. They can give you step-by-step instructions. I am a technician and this is what I would do as their are millions of wiring diagrams. Many are noy up to date.

Need to disassemble a thermostat

  1. Pull the faceplate (bottom) straight out from the wall.
  2. Loosen the screws at the end of the wires, like the one in the middle at the tip of my middle finger.
  3. Remove the 2 screws which hold the rest in.
  4. Make a note of which wires were attached to what. I suggest taking pictures.
