Resolved Question:

I just purchased a Honeywell Thermostat model RTH8580WF to replace my old White Rodger which is out of date. However, I set my thermostat on 72 cool and it is blowing out hot air instead of cool air. The wiring is different and I believe I may have it mixed up. Can you help me please?

We set it to 0170 (as indicated on pg 51) and I'm waiting for it to kick on. Does this sound right?

Expert:  Billy replied 8 months ago.
Function 0170....what value did you enter?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.

value 9

Expert:  Billy replied 8 months ago.
set for 7

Customer: replied 8 months ago.

But we have 2 stage heat and 1 stage cooling?

Expert:  Billy replied 8 months ago.
Yes but it is heat pump and not gas furnace. In heat pump the aux becomes second stage

In gas furnace w1 and w2 are the stages.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.

Okay we are setting it to stage 7 now. I will let you know in just a few if it is working...please hold on.


 


Does the wiring look correct to you?

Expert:  Billy replied 8 months ago.
From what I can see it looks good...did you have an L in the previous stat?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.

yes we did have an L

Expert:  Billy replied 8 months ago.
Thank you.

Any luck yet?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.

Yes it is working. Thank you.
