I guess you have not had the satisfactory answer you has been seeking since I been seeing this question all day.It is not surprising.
What you have is a heat pump.
It uses a compressor to heat and cool
This isnot an ordinary system. the unit uses a solenoid to reverse the flow of freon and needs a defrost mode, plus it requires backup heat. AND all of the wiring config ain't the same my nizzle.
This is just my take on it from what i know. I sold thermostats before i retired. heat pumps need specialty thermostats to not only cover the reversing valve but the back up heat and defrost features as well. that is why you only use the recommended wall thermostat for a designed heat pump. I thank you.

Hi!!
The Rite Temp thermostat can be wired many in ways according to your unit's needs, I would like to send you an installation guide showing the different configurations, then you tell me which and how many wires come from the heat pump and we go from there. For this I need an email address to send it to. Thanks

    Hi!



    Follow this steps to connect the thermostat for a 2 Stage Heat and Cool. To complete step 5 I need an email address to send the diagram to. This site does not allow us to send images larger than 150k



    STEP 1 - Connect the W wire to the W terminal and W2 to W2 on the 6030. This connects 2 stages of heat.

    STEP 2 - Connect the Y wire to the Y terminal and Y2 wire to Y2 on the 6030. This connects 2 stages of cool.

    STEP 3 - Connect the RH or R wire to the RH terminal on the thermostat. This connects the Heater/Cooler Power.

    STEP 4 - Connect the G wire to the G terminal on the Thermostat. This connects to the Fan.

    STEP 5 - Set Config jumpers per this diagram. If you have Electric heat set 4, if you have Gas or Oil set 5.

    Your HVAC system is now connected to the 6030.

  • Rene J Solis Nov 12, 2010

    The C wire from the furnace provides power to the thermostat (terminal C) it is optional to connect it, I recommend to connect it since it will keep your batteries as a back up source of power thus prolonging battery life considerably.

    Your file has been sent, I figured it out, you wrote 689 instead of 684.

  • Rene J Solis Nov 12, 2010

    I don't, but you can send me a scanned copy to my email address. I have a question, are you trying to replace your old thermostat with the Rite Temp 6030? If so, what brand and model of thermostat do used to have?

Heat pump runs on electric when outside temperature is higher than cutin


Check your thermostat and heat pump owner's manuals. Thermostat may be programmed to require electric heat at higher temps. Also could be bad outdoor temperature sensor tied to
Heat pump system controls (I had that problem) When was it installed? Warranty thermostat and or Heat pump? Call installer
Thermostat programming is a headache. No help from installer? call customer service heat pump and thermostat. Some possibility of bad installer wiring. There is also a heat pump "defrost" cycle. Usually the Electric coil will turn on to compensate for the Defrost cycle which is just the standard air conditioning mode therefore moves heat from inside to the outside coil to melt the frost. This cycle may be occurring too often. I had that problem. Fixed under warrantee.
Heat pumps are complex machines. The controls even more.
You need a tech, hopfully you are still under warranty.
Hope this helps.

Heat pump fan runs backwards


If it's three-phase, swap any two source wires. If it's single-phase, find a fan blade with the opposite twist.

3 amp fuse blows after three hours on Goodman 4 ton 16 seer pump


I would suspect you have a problem in the defrost circuit of your heat pump. there are a couple of things you can try. first just run the system on emergency heat and see what happens. you could have a defrost board that is shorting when it kicks into defrost. it sends a signal back to the furnace so it will come on during defrost. if you do not blow a fuse as long as you are running in emergency heat, i would suspect the defrost control board. also you could have a dead short in the wire that runs from the "w" terminal on furnace control board, out to the heat pump. keep in mind that any of the wires could be the cause and i am just tying to give you the most common things. your furnace will still run if you unhook all the low voltage wiring out at the heat pump. if you do this and stop blowing fuses. you know it is something on that wiring. goodl luck.
