I have installed a Carrier fv4c air handler and 24abc636a003 condenser and am trying to wire them up to a honeywell thermostat. Does this wiring look correct?

I'm not super familiar with the Carrier Air Handler, but am wondering why you aren't wired to the Y1 terminal on it's control board?

(although it should not matter since you have the Y1 to the OD unit on the same terminal as the Y1 from the Tstat)

Looks good to me :thumbsup:
Actually after giving it a 2nd look the yellow wire from the stat & the red wire to the cond unit look like they should be moved one space up to Y1 in the furnace. Can't really see what the terminal they're in is labeled, but they should be in Y1, although often you'll see those wires not even connected at the terminal block, but just wire nutted together. So not sure if it will actually matter.

Sparks

I turned on the breaker at the main panel. I turned on the disconnect at the unit. There was an immediate humming sound and the fan started spinning up. After about ten seconds of trying to figure out why the fan was coming on already a huge arc happened behind the fan. I'm assuming coming from the heater strip. This happened for a split second before I hit the disconnect and it stopped. I have a pro coming out, but I'm curious as to what happened!

I'm not an ac guy, but I did build my entire house, wired it up, etc, so I'm not totally clueless.

No, its a variable speed airhandler and it is wired to the Y/Y2 terminal which is correct.

I would lean toward the thermostat isn't set up for AC/electric heat

Fixed it!

I removed the electric heater strip and found a piece of foil tape on the heater coils. Also I was missing a jumper from r to dh in the air handler which put the unit into dehumidify mode and turned on the heater. When I powered it up the heater kicked on and it did not like that tape!
