I am replacing the old Rodgers with a Honeywell RTH6500

Customer Question
I am replacing the old...
I am replacing the old White Rodgers with a Honeywell RTH6500 Wi-Fi. The old one does not have a C wire. I connect the existing B wire to C terminal and the O wire to O/B and the rest of the wires as follow G to G, Y to Y, W to AUX, Red wire to R & Rc (jumped). When I turned the power on I hear a humming from the furnace (up in the attic) even if the thermostat is set to off. The humming last all day. It was not like this before. Did I make all the right connections? I also set the function on the new as Heat pump. Is this correct? I understand if I have O & B wires (separate) then I have a heat pump system. My furnace is a forced air Gram with the A/C unit next to it. My house was built in 1998.

What is model on old thermostat?

Ask Your Own HVAC Question
HVAC Technician: airheatman, HVAC Technician replied 2 years ago

Also what is model on the outdoor unit? That will tell me if it is a heat pump.

Ask Your Own HVAC Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The old thermostat is White-Rodgers 1F80-24 (?). The A/C is Bryan model either 561C, 561N or 561W. The furnace is Ama forced air with product # ***** model # ***** There is a gas pipe going into the furnace. I just found out that the furnace was running even my Honeywell is off because the thermostat on my second floor (same White-Rodgers) is on. When I turned it off, the screen of the Honeywell downstairs went blank. I just want to use the Honeywell Wi-Fi downstairs. I do not care much about the old one upstairs. What should I do?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The White-Rodgers upstairs has only 3 wire connected (W, Y and Red (jumped from RC to RH)). I was trying to disconnect them all and the Honeywell went blank.
HVAC Technician: airheatman, HVAC Technician replied 2 years ago

Ok first of all, your system is definitely not a heat pump so we want 0 selected as system type.

But we have an issue here with this second thermostat being in the circuit.

Normally if you have a second thermostat it is operating zone dampers for upstairs.

The 0 terminal is for energizing the reversing valve in a heat pump and not used with a conventional system.

It sounds like previous installer may have been using that O terminal somehow to connect the second thermostat.

I am not familiar with how that is done so I am going to open this to other experts who may be more familiar with the setup.I did not realize there was a second thermostat.

I have opted out of the question to see if perhaps other experts may have more information and can assist.Please do not rate or reply as that will send question back to my desk.Please stand by to see if another expert can assist further.

Hello,

If you had a separate O and B terminal on the old unit you really need to get a thermostat with a separate O and B terminal as these older systems can not run like a newer unit just getting rid of the B and taping it off.

Ask Your Own HVAC Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The Honeywell tech told me that it can be done. Since I have B and O wires separately then I should have a heat pump system. The user guide told us to install B wire to C terminal and O wire to O/B terminal. Is this correct?

That is incorrect...having an Oand B wire does NOT mean you have a heat pump.

The Bryant 561 is a regular ac unit

The 373 furnace is regular gas furnace

The reason you have an O and B is because you are running a zone system. The o and b are terminals that go live in either heating as an accessory or cooling as an accessory.

You do NOT have a heat pump...you have a zoned system. You cannot use the wifi in place of the current thermostat as it is a "Master" and the other thermostat is secondary..meaning it can only do what the master lets it do.

I check at the furnace system and the wires are connected as follow.
1. The thermostat upstairs has only 2 wires connected. W (white) wire to COM 24U terminal, R (red) wire to Y terminal (connected to the same terminal with Y wire from downstairs). The G (green) is not used and is taped.
2. The thermostat downstairs has 6 wires connected. Y (yellow) to Y terminal, R (red) to R, G (green) to G, W (white) to W, especially B (blue) to red wire and O (brown) to green wire coming from 1 1/2 inches block with coil wires (I have no idea what it is).
With these wirings do you mean that I cannot use the Honeywell Wi-Fi thermostat? Initially after connecting the new Honeywell thermostat (G to G terminal, Y to Y, W to AUX, R to R jumped to Rc, B to C and O to O/B) I can set up the Wi-Fi and control the thermostat through my cell phone by turning the heat on and off and setting the temperatures.. After turning it on for a while then turning it off by cell phone the furnace stop but I still heard a humming sound from the system. Later when I tried to turn it on and off again, this time the furnace were still running. I realized at that time that I did switch the thermostat upstairs to ON all that time. When I switched it of, the one downstairs went blank. What does this mean?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Can I change the wiring somehow to make it works?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
What is the block that wires O and B connected to as I mentioned above?
HVAC Technician: BillyHvac, Journeyman HVAC Tech replied 2 years ago

It is the way you are configured. You have 2 thermostats without a zone panel...the block with coil wires is a relay..that is deciding which thermostat is operational.

The B terminal activates with heat and the o terminal with cool. The issue is that the main thermostat overrides the 3 wire....the wire is known as a slave because it can only operate when the master thermostat is not.

End result is if you want wifi on the master you need different terminals for o/b...or do away with the second thermostat and let the master control the entire house.

Unfortunately the o/b is NOT for heat pump as previous peer mistakenly noted.

Here the O and B are accessories...Not a O and B (common) as evident by "taping off" comment.

So in summary, the unit is not a heat pump as instructed.....the b terminal is not one that can be taped off as instructed

They use the relay to differentiate between what thermostat is given control...

If you have further questions ask for Billy as I recognized that you had a dual thermostat arrangement and not a heat pump.

Billy,
With all the talk back and forth, I still did not get the main answer for my question: how to make my Honeywell RTH 6500 Wi-Fi work with the existing system. In summary, now that I understand I have a heat/cool, not a heat pump system, I have 2 thermostats with a relay that is deciding which one is operational. If I cannot use both, I am willing to get the one upstairs disconnected and use only the one downstairs. How can I do that without having to buy a different thermostat. Can I change the connection at the control board and at the thermostat? Again here are the existing connections at both ends right now.
A. AT THE CONTROL BOARD:
1) Coming from the thermostat upstairs only 2 wires are connected. W (white) wire to COM 24U terminal, R (red) wire to Y terminal (connected to the same terminal with Y wire from downstairs). G (green) is not used and is taped.
2) Coming from the thermostat downstairs 4 wires are connected. Y (yellow) to Y terminal, R (red) to R, G (green) to G, W (white) to W. The B (blue) is connected to the Red wire and the O (brown) to the Green wire coming from the relay.
A. AT THE DOWNSTAIRS THERMOSTAT:
1) 6 wires were connected to my old White-Rodgers (model 1F80-24) as follow: W (white) to W, G (green) to G, Y (yellow) to Y, R (red) to Rc jumped to Rh, B (blue) to B and O (brown) to O terminal. The last 2 were connected to the relay as mentioned above.
2) The new Honeywell thermostat has the following terminals: K, Y2, W2, G, W, C, Y, R and Rc. This thermostat requires a C wire for power. I do not have one. How do I make all the connections, especially to have power for the C wire.
If you cannot make it work then I should not pay for the service. If it can help I can send the pictures. Just tell me how.
Thx. Quang
HVAC Technician: BillyHvac, Journeyman HVAC Tech replied 2 years ago

If you are willing to change the system we can use the thermostat.

Do you know if you have any dampers in the system to separate zones or simply have 2 different thermostats for one furnace?

Ok,

we are going to do away with the upstairs thermostat and the relay.

remove existing thermostat.

Install wifi and wire as follows:

red to R/Rc

white to W

Yellow to Y

Green to G

Blue to C.

Now at furnace....

red to R

white to W

yellow to Y

green to g

blue to C

Do not use brown

This will connect main thermostat direct to furnace/ac and give complete control and wifi

Bill,
Ok. So the terminal COM 24U is C? I do have that. At the furnace I just remove and tape all the wires coming from the thermostat upstairs. Should it be good enough? It's late now. I'll do it tomorrow and let you know. Thank you for your patient.
HVAC Technician: BillyHvac, Journeyman HVAC Tech replied 2 years ago

you are correct..just tape off all the other wires.

You see the thermostats really cancel each other in this design.

Lets say down stairs is warm enough, but upstairs needs heat...all it does is turn the furnace on until the upstairs is warm..which overheats the downstairs...

So really in your case you just want one thermostat anyway.

Wire as described and just get back to me...make sure furnace is off when proceeding

It still doesn't work after changing all the connections. Please see the attached pictures before and after. I made a mistake by telling that there are 2 sets of wires coming from both thermostats to the furnace. Actually there is only one set. The other is coming from the outside AC. This AC set has 3 wires. White is connected to Com 24U, Red is connected to Y and the green is not connected. The 2 thermostats wires must be tied together somewhere in the wall because there is only 1 set going to the furnace. The cover of the wires at the thermostats are white. But at the furnace the cove is in chocolate color. I disconnected all the wires at the upstairs thermostat. When I turned the power back on, the new Honeywell thermostat screen is still blank. There must be no power coming in. Please let me know what's wrong?

ok, the issue is where the wiring changes color. It is unlikely it is inside a wall...but could be tucked in a joist space.

So we 2 cables coming in..one from ac one from thermostats.......can you follow the wires at all before they go through floor or attic for the splice?

Billy,
The furnace is on the attic.The AC wire is going to outside AC. The thermostat wires disappears under wooden floor in the attic and I don't know where it's going. At the Honeywell thermostat there is terminal O/B. What is this for and what does it mean? If we cannot make it works, it's fine. I am going to return it and buy something more compatible. I still do not understand why the new thermostat had power and was running before and now it doesn't.
HVAC Technician: BillyHvac, Journeyman HVAC Tech replied 2 years ago

The old thermostat did not need a common. The entire issue right now is if we had the same 5 wires run from the furnace to the thermostat we would be fine...but the 5 wires at furnace are not the wires at the thermostat we need.

Could the wiring be behind one of the thermostats? (splice)

I mean the new Honeywell RTH 6500 Wi-Fi was lighting up and was working before when I made connections as follow:
W (white wire) to W2 terminal
G (green) to G
O (brown) to W
B (blue) to C
Y (yellow) to Y
R (red) to R & Rc (jumped)
I were able to control it from my smart phone. In this case I did not change any connection from the furnace. The connections at the furnace were as follow:
W (white wire) to W
Y to Y
R to R
G to G
B (blue) to red wire from the relay
O (brown) to green wire from the relay
At the furnace there is another set of 3 wires coming from the outside AC. The connection are:
White to COM 24U terminal
Red to Y terminal and Green is not being used (taped).Again it was working fine with this set-up . The problem was it worked only when I turned the existing White-Rodger thermostat upstairs ON. If I turned the switch to OFF the Honeywell went blank. The connections at this thermostat are:
W (white) to W
Y (yellow) to Y
R (red) to Rc & Rh (jumped). The rest of the wires are not connected.So I don't think there is an existing wiring issues of wirings behind the wall.

At the furnace, if I disconnected the B (blue wire) from the Red wire from the relay and connect it to COM terminal nothing is running. If I removed it from the COM and reconnected back to the Red wire from the relay the new Honeywell thermostat screen is on and I can control it from my phone. But then we are going back to the original problem. The furnace is running all the time even if I turned the Honeywell thermostat to OFF. Twisting the W and R wires from upstairs thermostat is the same as turn it ON. If I disconnect them then the Honeywell thermostat went blank and everything is OFF.
HVAC Technician: BillyHvac, Journeyman HVAC Tech replied 2 years ago

wow...well this can be done...but we need to eliminate that relay and have the 5 wires that leave furnace terminals be the 5 wires that go to the thermostat (with no splicing).

I am afraid I will have to open this to the others if we cant get a dedicated 5 wire from furnace to thermostat
