I'm replacing a Trane T8411r thermostat with a Lux TX1500E.

Customer Question

Hi, I'm replacing a Trane T8411r thermostat with a Lux TX1500E. The wiring at the air handler has been modified with Florida Power (now Duke) energy conservation wiring, which is hard to trace. I believe the following is correct:
JA: Did you double-check the thermostat's settings? And what about the filters?
Customer: Sorry I hit the send by mistake. The Green wire from terminal G on the Trane goes to the G terminal on the Lux. The Blue from B on trane to C on Lux. The Red from R to RH/RC on Lux. Yellow on Y trane to Y on Lux. Orange on O trane to O Lux. The White from W(jumped to X2) on trane to W on Lux. I am thinking that the Lux doesn't support restive heat strips as booster "emergency" heat. That's fine with me. Do I have it right, or where did I go wrong. I don't have a good confidence feeling. Thanks Jim

Hello,

it looks good from what you described...did you program the thermostat for heat pump?
