Question about Honeywell Heating & Cooling
Brown my friend is for the 4 way valve solenoid, that is if you have a heat pump, ( it uses freon for heating instead of natural gas) perhaps you got the wrong thermostat, if you have a brown you need a thermostat for a heat pump, a regular thermostat is not going to have a brown connection.

SOURCE: Replace thermostat
Typical color codes in Florida are;
white to W1 for heat
yellow to Y for compressor
red to R-RC-RH for power in
brown to W2 and or emergency /auxillary heat
green to G or Fan
orange to reversing valve(o/b)
blue to common.
You can open the control panel on the unit to verify these colors and components.

I'm doing a lot of guessing here for lack of information. You have a residential boiler and hydronic heating system that is zoned around your home and each zone has an independent thermostat?
Again, I need to guess. The old valve was spring return with yellow, blue and red wires? If all is true so far, then I think you had a single end switch with one COMMON - one NORMALLY OPEN and one NORMALLY CLOSED contact. 6 wires would make up 2 end switches. Brown is a normal color for one lead of an end switch. If this is all true, your new switches are probably NORMALLY OPEN and you only need 1. If this did not help you, give me a better description of old and new and I will get this correctly answered for you.
