Tell me what wire and I will try to tell you how to hook it up. Usually it is a 4 or 5 wire system unless you have a heat pump. Red is transformer and goes on "r"on the thermostat. Green is usually fan blower and goes on "g" on the thermostat. White is heat and goes on "w". Yellow is usually your air cond and goes on "y". If you have a blue or black this is usually common (or the other side of the transformer) There may be a "c" on your thermostat

My Rheem central a/c blower fan starts by itself when the t-stat is off and the fan set to auto. It seems to happen more in rainy weather. It does stop eventually then starts again. It's not the t


Sounds like the fan relay is getting voltage bleedover from the 24 volt wire. Could be the thermostat also but most likely there is a bare spot on the wire going from the fan relay to the terminal marked "G" on your thermostat that is touching the wire that goes to the terminal "R". Easiest way to fix this is to run new T-Stat wire from thermostat to the indoor unit or the blower motor if it is a package unit, making sure that the "R" and "G" wires have good insulation on them and are not touching. If you have an 8-wire T-stat wire you can sub out the wires marked "R" and "G" with different color wires that are not being used, just pay attention to how they hook up and you will not have to pull a new wire through the wall. Good luck!

I have a new Rheem heat pump. The cooling works fine but won't blow hot air in HEAT setting. I have reset the breakers for heat pump and air handler, changed filters and pulled batteries and reset the...


if this is indeed a heat pump you rthermostat should also have a emergency heat setting does it work on that setting... a heat pump on heat wuns the outside unit and has a recersing valve that changes the refigerant flow ..is the outside runnignduring heat mode... if you turn the thermostat in emergency heat the outside should shut down and indoor heat should come on...of this is not happening you have a wiring issue if both are not working... braeburn thermostats usually have behind the cover dip switches... i am not exactly sure what model this is but if indeed a heat pump the thermostat should have a r,w2,y,e,g,c,o,and b terminal... rheem wiring should be as follows
red to r white to w2 , g=green , yellow to y terminal there should be a wire hooked to the b terminal usually brown sometimes orange on the b terminal that is your reversing valve terminal.
you are going to have to make sure the thermostat is configured to energize the b termianl and will have to go into the installer setup to do this...hopefully you still have the paper work on thermostat... most heat pumps use the o terminal for reversing valve but rheem uses the b terminal
hope this helps out some repost with anymore probs...also make sure the switches are set to electric or gas whatever you have heat pump or not etc. inside thermostat

Change out problem


AIR HANDLERS DO NOT ENERGIZE REVERSING VALVE , THE THERMOSTAT DOES THE JOB THROUGH THE O  OR B TERM TO THE OUTSIDE UNIT. IF YOU HOOK UP TO O TERM AND HEAT COMES ON WHEN YOU SET AC ON THEN SWITCH TO B TERM ON STAT. YOU SHOULD HAVE O TERM ON CONDENSER OUTSIDE AND YOU USE ORANGE WIRE IF YOU HAVE ONE. IF NOT USE UNUSED WIRE IN 6 WIRE STAT HARNESS.

Do you have 4 wires going to you thermostat and do you have an R and Rh terminal or R and Rc terminal on your new thermostat?
If so then you need to put a jumper wire from R to Rh or R to Rc.

Switch a rheem thermostat to a hunter thermostat for heat pump


You can take the front cover off of your programmable thermostat. Unscrew approximately 2 screws that attach the base plate of the thermostat to the wall. Look in the back of the base plate after removing it from the wall to see how the 2 or 3 different colored wires (ex: red, green, black) are hooked up. Make note of this. Remove the wires from the back of the base plate and attach the wires to the same posts that they were connected to on the original base plate you removed. I believe the posts on the back of the base plates are color coded. (Ex: attach green wire to where it says GRN on back of base plate).
Make sure the thermostat that you are replacing and the new thermostat are similiar in shape, otherwise you will have make repairs to cover up a space that may appear around the new thermostat.

Good luck!

Replacing an older Rheem Ht/Pump w/a new Goodman Ht/Pump


The installation instructions should explain connecting 4 control wires to a 5 wire thermostat. Absent the instructions, check to see if any of the terminals on the new thermostat have jumper wires run between them -- if this is the case the two terminals w/ jumpers will only require one wire, and it doesn't matter which terminal is connected -- just match colors.
