That ink definitely will not work for some reason... Any other email I can send the picture to?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Every wire is wired into the tiny little screws on the back panel... White wire, red wire yellow wire, blue wire,green wire. Is there any little connection (black) that should be jointly hooked to 2 of the other little screws?

Is the black wire coming from the wall with other wires?If so lets look in air handler and see what it is connected to in there.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No the black wire is not coming out of the wall .. It is a wire that is in one piece that is bent so that it makes a U I think it was somehow attached to 2 if the screws .. Like for grounding or something?

Expert:  airheatman replied 2 years ago.
My manual only shows the terminal posts where wires from air handler connect to.Is this one of those wires or on back of the subbase?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
