Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset I am just one of the techs on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can and I just picked up your question now. Please give me time to respond as typing, researching and adding links takes me time to do so please be patient and often I will ask you questions to narrow down the issue so do not rate me until we are done thanks.

Ok your new one sounds like it is battery powered as you have no C connection. The ORANGE indication was for the heat function on the Heat pump, that should go to the O terminal...Red goes to the R terminal and leave the jumper to RC..that should be it...also make sure you have the correct setup chosen for your type of system in the installer menu.
