Question about Amana Heating & Cooling

2 Answers

Replacing an amana mercury thermostat with honeywell programmable. Old wires are y1,w1,w2,g,rc/rh. Have y1 to y, w1 to o/b, w2 to aux, r to r, g to g. Now outside will not shut off when heat is on.

Only way to make outside unit turn off is to switch over to cool. Hot and cold air blow correctly on heat and cool settings

If your old mercury t-stat only had 1 adjustment arm, it is not a heat pump setup... You don't mention orange or blue wires, so pretty sure your not using heat pump...

Yellow wire to y1

Green wire to g

Red wire to rc / rh... most likely jumped together

White wire to w1... depending on size of home and heat kit, w1 and w2 may be jumped together also... if you have a gas furnace, w2 is not used

What is -the outside?
Heat pump, gas, electric heat combination?
You may need to back track, double check the Honeywell configuration jumper or software settings for your type of heating used.

SOURCE: Thermostat Wiring: W2? E? Where to connect?

You have a heat pump. You need a thermostat for "Heat pump with Electric back-up heat". Make sure the 'stat has either an "aux" (auxilliary heat) or an "E"(Emergency heat) terminal. The wiring instructions will be provided with the thermostat.

Thanks for your Question,
B- is your common leg,
RH- is your hot to heating
RC1- you will not need
RC- you can use if you remove the jumper for cooling
Y1- you will not need
G- is your fan
O is not needed, wires should be hooked in as follows,
RH- red wire, heating
RC- Yellow wire, Cooling
G- Green wire, Fan
B- Blue wire, for common leg, this one might be a different color so make sure at the furnace which T-Stat wire is connected to Common, you should check all the wiring at the furnace to make sure this pattern of wiring is followed, it should be standard practice to hook them up this way, but not all installers do it, thanks again, please rate this,

Looks like your system is a heatpump system and that t-stat will not run a heatpump , you need a t-stat for 2heat and 1 cool systems

Hi,
I hate to tell you this but that thermostat will not work with your system.
The system you have is a 2 stage system and the thermostat you got will only do one stage.
You will need to get a thermostat theat is compatible with stage heating and cooling.
The W1 is the first stage heating, the W2 is second heating. The same is true for Y1 and Y2 on cooling
You could double them up, but it would defeat the encomoy reasons for having a 2 stage unit.
Wish I could give you better news..

I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

The Honeywell LR69071 (old) has 7 wires connected labeled (X W2 R O Y G E) The Hunter 44860 (new) has wire connections for ( Y1 Y2 W2 G RH RC/R B W1 E O C L) What connects with what? There is also a jumper...


Wiring on the old one, "X", probably a brown wire will not be used on the new stat. If it's a blue wire, this may be your common. "E" and "W2" probably wired together with a white wire, this controls electric heat. "R" with a red wire, this is 24 volt power. "O" is an orange wire, this is the reversing valve. "Y" is a yellow wire, this is the contactor. "G" is a green wire, this is the blower. This pretty accurate? On the new stat, the jumper should be connecting "RH" to "RC/R", leave it in and wire the "R" from your old one to either terminal. White from the old one will go to the "E" of the new one. If your electric heat doesn't work after the install, you may need to jumper the "W1" and "W2" with the "E". "O" wires to "O". "Y" from the old one wires to the "Y1" of the new. "G" wires to "G". "C" on the new one is common. Usually a blue wire goes here. If "X" on the old one was blue, plug it into the "C". If it was brown, I'd suggest not using a common, and installing batteries. Hope this helps.

Honeywell Thermostat


Make sure G from indoor unit goes to G on thermostat for fan continous fan, if that doesn't work and you have 24 volts to R and C then the t'stat is bad.
For 2nd stage heat or aux.heat, on the indoor unit you need to make sure the wire W2 from the indoor unit goes to W2 on t'stat.
You don't need any wires from W1on the indoor unit to W1 at the t'stat because with a York heat pump Y1 is the contactor which turns the compressor on and you will get 1st stage heat, and for cooling the t'stat will also bring on O which is the (reversing valve) or cooling changeover relay for the cooling mode.
C = common usually black wire
R = hot usually red wire
Y or Y1 = contactor
W1 = 1st stage heat not needed for heat pump
W2 = Aux. heat indoor heat
G = fan
O = Cooling changeover relay
B = Heating changeover relay
L = System monitor
E = Emergency heat relay

I had an old thermostat that i had to change need wiring diagram


both thermostatats will have terminal designators R,W,Y,G, possibly O/B, C, W1,W2, Y1, Y2, etc.
Simplest method is to remove wires from old stat one at a time. mark where they came from and then install at same desinated terminal on the new t-stat. Hope this helps. be sure to shut off power supply to the unit (furnace) first. The wire coming to the R (RH,RC) terminal is the 24 volt a/c hot, all others are feeding back to perform given function.
