I can help you, but need more information on the air handler.
Tim, What do you need to know. Also, I only had $9.00 in paypal, will add another $11.00 if that's O.K. with you.
The air handler is form Goodman. Sorry for the delay, I was in the attic tracing wires to the air handler when you replied.
I need the model number of the air handler and which terminals are at the board on the air handler.
I'm looking now. There is no board. Fan Rely, Electric Heat Relay, 24volt Transformer, Fan Motor and capacitor all mounted on a side panel. , Model Number A32-08.
The rires are Pink and Blue to the 24 volt secondary. White and Brown to the same terminal of teh Electric Heating Relay. Green to the Fan Motor Relay.
How do you connect thermostat wires at the air handler? Are there terminals labled R,W, Y and so forth?
There are no Terminals on the Air Handler. Just wires coming out and tied into the wires going to the Outside (Ruud) unit and to the Honeywell Thermostat. Main problem is what the "D" connector on the Ruud goes to.
The Schematic with the Ruud does not show detail just block diagram.
The "D" connector on the Ruud is a purple wire.
Rest of the Ruud seems to correspond to standards and contains Y B C R D.
Is the model number you gave above for the RUUD outdoor unit?
No it's on the Air Handler made by Goodman.
Can you give me the model number of the new heat pump (the outside unit)?
OK, thank you. I will check on this and get back to you. So, I'm a little confused. You say the air handler is a Goodman. But then you say the Ruud has colors coming out of it. Are you talking about the outdoor unit?
Yes, the Ruud is an outdoor unit. New Purchase to replace a Goodman that had the compressor go bad. The Goodman is about 15 years old. The Honeywell Thermostat is about 2 years old and worked fine with the Goodman Heat Pump system (Air handler and Outside units).
I just can't find anything about the D, rest looks straight forward.
OK, I'll check on this. So your contractor left you high and dry and didn't hook up your stat?
I have read that the C on the Ruud may not be common as most manufactures us. Will have to look back to see what they say it was for.
I'm working with the Contractor.
OK, got it.
I'm going to check on this with my dealer as I'm a Ruud dealer.
Shall I wait on line?
No need to. I'll post a response in a while.
O.K. Have an errand I need to run. Will check back on line in about an hour.
Yes, it shouldn't be too much longer than that.
O.K. I'm herer
