may be wrong wiring!!


Hi there,
just bought the house - foreclosed, had primitive/broken (old fashion) thermostat, so I replaced with Honeywell RTH7600 thermostat. Old thermostat was giving hot air but now, after replacing thermostat, it doesn't blow warm air. This how I did it:
Black - C
Green - G
Yellow - Y
Oranges - O/B
Red - R (with jumper attached to RC)
White - W (Aux)
Blue - Y2

I've an Electric Heater Cooler furnace, Westinghouse HP33 HZ60 Voltz 20B/240 system, probably 10 years old. PLEASE HELP!!

not sure if you solved the problem but i read the install manual for your t-stat and have you made sure you set the t-stat settings to match your equipment? the way you wired it is the correct way to install a heat pump. here is the link for the manual. its possible that t-stat isnt compatible with your model heat pump.

Need to know which wires were connected to which terminals on your old thermostat, particularly the orange, blue and black wires. Sounds like you have a heat pump and they are more complicated than a regular system.

WELL, problem fixed. Replaced Thermostat, from Honeywell RTH7600 to RiteTemp 6080, works like a charm
