Replacing Johnson Control with Honeywell RTH8500
 
http://www.diychatroom.com/images/icons/icon8.gif Installing Honeywell RTH8500 to replace Johnson control T210hp-10
It should be simple, that's what they claim.....:mad:

The wire coming from the wall are labelled as follow:
R
O
Y1
C
X
W2

I used the wiring diagram from page 12 (Installation Guide) that says:
R connect to Rc & R leave metal jumper in place,
O to O/B
Y1 to Y
C to C
X to E
W2 to Aux

Power back heat pump and furnace, set time and temp, :censored: doesn't work!!!!

Actually, HeatPump works, but fan in the central furnace doesn't?

Thanks in advance... I leave computer on to heat up the house:laughing:

down on the air handler do you see a G terminal wired in.....and is it going up to the subbase.thats a heatpump but the "air handler" is just that, or is it a furnace with gas?does the old stat,and new stat both have FAN ON/AUTO on that subbase? does the subbases have a G terminal?

Also, did you make sure to set up the Thermostat for your unit, and not just hook it up and put in the batteries? There is a little more to do with the Honeywells, then just open the box and connect.

I HAVE TO OPEN UP THE UNIT, I WILL CHECK AT LUNCH (12H35)

AND YES, GREGZOLL, I PROGRAMMED THE UNIT, AFTER FINDING HOW BY A LOT OF READING i.e. center bottom key.

WIL SEE LATER TODAY, TEMPERATURE IS AROUND -8C SO NOT TO WORRY NOW...

THANK YOU BOTH, I WILL KEEP CHATROOM POSTED1:thumbup:

I spoke to my serviceman, I had to make appointment for annual PM,

he told me to make sure GREEN or X wire is connected to G on HONEYWELL. No charge!!!

And now it works perfect.
I will post complete programming later.

Thanks every one, happy heat...

configuration so far and it work:
fonction =>> setting
170=>>9
180=>>0
240=>>5
300=>>0

the rest is personnal C, hour in 24h

That's it.
Thank's again for the support.

the only difference with the G/FAN is in cooling mode it calls in from the stat,and on a heat pump there might be a time delay when your heating thru the air handler.brands differ on that one.good luck up north there
