I have a rheem criterion II FURNACE (rpgh 10eamer) When hooking up a thermostat for air conditioning, the y terminal on the furnace does not turn on the outdoor compressor. Is there a way to configure the control board so that the y terminal is active and would control the compressor.?

The thermostat activates the y command. The wiring passes through the furnace, but the furnace does not activate the compressor.

I suspect the sequencer is stuck. However, you may have a thermostat problem or a short in the 24V. If it is a heat pump then likely the reversing valve is not kicking in. There can be numerous causes for this and you should probably call a pro in for this one. Diagnosis is not such a simple thing.

I have a rheem criterion ii a/c and furnace. The power source from the a/c outside unit is not hooked up inside. Where on the unit indoors does the wire attach.


two wires go from the inside unit to the outside unit. Y terminal and C terminal (both low voltage). Power should come from circuit breaker panel (20 or 30 amp double breaker).

First off, make sure that the wires you are connecting at the thermostat match the circuit board of the unit. It is good practice, but not always followed to do a "1 for 1". To answer your question, W2 is simply when there is 2-stages of heating. If your furnace does not have 2-stage heating, then leave it empty on the t-stat. "C" is common. Common is neutral, so it should have continuity to the ground or L2. If your old stat did not utilize this, I wouldn't worry about it, unless the new stat is a touchscreen and constantly lit stat. Just keep this in mind. W-warm (heat), Y-cooling, G-fan, R-hot (main 24v power from furnace to thermostat), C-common (not always required), AUX (auxillary, if there wasn't one used on your last furnace, I wouldn't worry about it.). X may have been a common, or a dead terminal.
Bottom line, if you open your furnace to see the circuit board and where the thermostat wire connects, and match above, you should be just fine. Make sure you turn power off prior to opening the furnace, and when landing the wires on the stat. You could inadvertently blow the 24v transformer.

My Rheem oil furnace is coupled with Rhuud heat pump. Oil furnace runs on emergency mode only and heat pump doesn't work at all!! Now the oil furnace will not even fire up even on emode.


Try and jump it out by taking the wire hooked to R and W terminals on your thermostat and connecting them. It could be you have a bad thermostat.

if you have 2 wire at thermostat Terminals at furnace that the thermostat wire attach to should be R & W if your new thermostat has R & W terminals is should work, an easy thing to remember is the red wire on R the white wire on W. If 4 wire at thermostat at furnace green on G, Blue on Y, red on R,and white on W same at thermostat If these do not match find a thermostat with these terminals

Trouble Wiring in Rheem heat pump


The red wire goes back to the furnace red, the blue back to the thermostat blue, the brown back to the furnace C terminal, the yellow back to thermostat Yellow (if there is a Y terminal on that furnace, land your Y's there. The purple wire outside comes back and ties to the W terminal on the furnace. Now you have a dual fuel unit so you will need a dual fuel kit or a thermostat that has dual fuel capability along with an outdoor sensor.
