Make sure you have "rc" and "rh" tied together with a jumper.

The rest of the wiring is like this on a standard type unit:
Y= cooling (yellow)
W=heat (white)
R= hot (red)
C= if used = common ( sometimes blue or black)

Is this a heat pump? Look in the thermostat. You should have something like the following.
Red wire to R terminal
Green wire to G terminal
Yellow wire to Y terminal
White wire to W or W1
Blue or Orange wire to the O or B terminal
Brown wire to C terminal.

Let me know what you have in the thermostat. The wire colors are not always the same.

Thermostat takes too long to cool down 1 degree


Thermostats don't cool or heat. They are just the control device that tells the furnance or AC to operate and register the present temperature and tell the furnance or A/C to shut off, once the desired temperature has been reached.

Most programmable thermostats will take at least 1-2 weeks to "learn" how long to run the furnance or A/C in order to reach the desired temperatures you've programmed into it, for the time you want it be that temperature. Variables such as extremely hot days and higher humidity will also affect your cooling system.

Give it a little time to self-learn and it should adjust itself after a week or two of operation. You might want to take some time to review and familiarize yourself with the owners manual to see what Hunter advises for setting up and using the thermostat.

You may need to have your A/C checked to see if you're running low on freon, or need to have the coils cleaned, need to change the air filter, etc.

Hope this helps and best regards!

Hunter 44110 programmable thermostat not turning off ac


You may and an anolog stat and the old one was digital if so it won't work. Digital sends info to system anolog is just a set of points open or closed. Digital can carry tons of info to system like a computer. Like comparing a computer to a rock. Sorry but you need to go back to proper type stat.

Hunter 44860 says heat is running


Does the indoor blower come on when you switch the unit to "Fan/ Run"? If the indoor fan comes on, this verifies that you have both low voltage and high voltage to the unit. If not, you may have one or both voltages giving you a problem. Try this and let's see if we can get it going. This is step one in checking it out.

Good luck and hope this helps

Hunter Thermostat fan won't turn off


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, I am inclined to suspect 3 possibilities:
  • sticking relay contacts (if used) (a possibility, least likely);
  • dusty thermal sensor/switch for the fan (likely);
  • time delay. design feature, will power down the fan only after a certain period that the heater has turned off. This is to dissipate residual heat not only on the heater but on the immediate surroundings of the heater element (most likely).
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

My hunter thermostate keeps flashing a 4 and wont turn on !


hunter thermostats are not the highest quality. on the back of the thermostat there should be a not well identified reset button. You can locate and push this to attempt to fix the problem. Or purchase a new (i would suggest Robertshaw or braeburn) thermostat and install.

Programmable Thermostat Model 43157


On my Hunter model, there is a "Span" setting that allows you to change how long the AC/Heat will run before it turns off. Basically, it sets the acceptable range (above and below) your temperature setting. To access this press both the up and down arrows and hold them. "Span" should show up with a number (1,2, or 3). For your problem, change the setting to 1 so the AC will run shorter, and more frequently to keep the temperature more constant.

Hunter 44630 thermostat


Here is a link that will have wiring diagram it is for a similar model hunter. Also check your dip switch on the back of the stat to ensure it is set for gas (HG) or electric heat (HE) depending on your type of unit. Good Luck. Rule of thumb for most four wire systems is RED (power to stat) Yellow (Cooling) Green (Fan) White (heat)
