replacing old lenox thermostat with new RTHL3550 honeywell


I am having trouble with the proper wire hookup. The fan kicks on but the compressor does not.The Lenox is a mid to late 80"s model and has the rectangular thermostat with wires F, E, Y,R,V, and three unused wires I have no idea what they are for..The old unit is a heat pump /cool/ with emergency back up( strip heat).. Can someone please tell me how to wire this up to my new honeywell RTHL3550..Thanks amillion

Why put a new thermostat on a 25 year old heatpump?

Are you having other problems with it?
