Thermostat Wiring issue


Okay I jumped the B and the Y together and that fixed part of my problem, I am now heating when I am supposed to be, but it is not cycling out the way it is suppose to. Even if I have it set for 70 and it is 77 degrees in the house it will still come on, any ideas on what my problem is other than the wrong man for the job???

Thermostat Wiring issue


You ASSUMEd that their is a color code standard for low voltage when there is not.

With out knowing what wires are connected to what terminals at the indoor and outdoor units.
Can't tell you how to wire it.

The only way that I can troubleshoot this via this forum is for you to take a digital pictures of both the outside unit and indoor unit control wires. I need to see where the wires are connected at. Pay attention to the control board of both units and take good clear pictures and send it to my e-mail address, servoem11@aol.com. It looks like some of your wires were connected not using the standard color code for a heat pump unit.....

Thermostat Wiring issue


I finally got a hold of my cousin and he walked me through it pretty good. I was trying to wire up something that wasnt even there, lol. It is not a heat pump at all it was just a split unit. Somebody told me that on here and I was set on it being a heat pump and was giving it all I had to wire it up as one. I worked 2 days trying to wire it for one and it took about 5 minutes to fix it when I figured out how, I'm still kicking myself. All I had to do was go down to the basement and see the way the wires were connected to the wiring block and and just follow the same on the Tstat. Lesson learned, "Dont volunteer to help out around the house"
