Hunter 44360 thermostat wiring

Argh! my husband and I bought new thermostat and the heat will not come on. We are using the 4 wire heat/cool wiring. It looks as if alot of people are having the same problem but no solutions came up. Any thoughts? Below are the issues.

I currently have a Von Air digital non-programmable thermostat controlling my Trane electic a/c and heater. Where do I put the wires on a programmable Hunter 44360. Original connections are as follows:
Orange to O/W2
Red to R, Yellow to Y/Y2, Green to G, Blue to C and White to W/W1. The new tstat does not have the connection letters and seems that I have too many wires to connect.

I would suggest buying a new fan at the price of the replacement part for your existing Hunter Fan. Ceiling Fan Direction have fans at lesser price compare to other online retailers. CeilingFanDirection

If you don't have the wiring information, go here: and see page 10.  
If you're still having problems, go down to the furnace room and find the piece of equipment that you're wiring to.  See where the wires came from, transpose that to the information above.  Note: the wiring from the relay box should be 24 volts which is safe to handle.  Wiring inside the relay box may be 110 or more volts which is not!!!  Cut power before opening relay boxes.
As far as heater running continuously, be sure of your wiring.  You may have the gas relay lead and the fan lead reversed.  Determine if you've set the switch options for your type of heater correctly!!!  Do you hear the relay clicking in and out at or near the room temp when you change the setpoint?  If not, the unit may be defective.

How do i get my carrier thermostat # R ,Y/Y2. G , C , W/W1 into a Hunter thermostat model 44360?

First off hunter is a very problematic brand I recommend taking it back and get honeywell or white rodger you will thank me in the long run trust me. As far as the wiring goes R terminal which is typically red which is 24v power connect to R on t- stat hook Y which is usually Yellow to Y terminal G is green W is white,
R= power 24 V
Y= cooling
W= heat
G= fan
C= common only used if t-stat does not require batteries.

I have a Ruud air handler and i'm trying to use a

The 44360 tstat can be used for single stage Heat pump use only. Unless you are in an environment that has greater than 40 degF outdoor temperatures year-round, you will want to return that tstat and obtain a multi-stage Heat Pump tstat. The standard system is 2-stage......1st stage is Heat Pump Compressor and 2nd stage is the backup electric heat.

Hope this helps. Good Luck. :-)

We just bought a house that the thermostat had been removed and the wires were just coming out of the wall not labeled. The furnace is a Tempstar gas model 9MPT125L20A serial # LO13778617.As far as we can...

The Red and White wires coming from the furnace are the only ones that call for heat. the Green wire turns on the fan continuously, the yellow is for AC. If you have another wire color, it may be a Common wire and should not be used if your t-Stat has batteries. If no batteries, it goes to the C screw.

Thermo smoked when elec. turned on

Where are the wires connected in the heater ? They should be on R and W, if the W is on C you are shorting the heat anticipator in the thermostat. If the unit is wired right look for a spot where the wire is rubbed thru and touching the metal housing of the heater.

Wireing code from goodman heat and air to a Hunter 44360 programa

To get your heat going take the red wire hook it up to R on t-stat. Take white wire and hook it to W on t-stat. Take the green wire and hook it to G on t-stat. that will get you heat. Now I need for you to go to the unit where the wires hook to the furnace circuit board. I need to know what color wires go to what on the board. Might have to take off bottom panel. should only be using 4 or 5 wires. Get back with me and will complete the wiring. Be sure no wires at the t-stat are touching each other as this will short out transformer. So tape them off or cut flush so wire and insulation are flush. ken

You probably have one of the wires reversed or have the options set incorrectly as to what type of heater you have.  Check your instructions here:
