Customer Question
I had a honeywell...

I had a honeywell t stats go out. bought a new wifi stat. honeywell also. the equiment i have is as follows: trane compressor XR15, Trane furnace heatpump with gas backup XB80 model tue080a948l3. the furnace has five wires to connect to, so i also have a honeywell interface module thm5421c, i guess this is to make the connections work for older furnace unit? the new stat is rth8580wf1007. i need to know if they are compatible, if so i need to know how to wire the stat, the module and the furnace

Contractor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Well like what?? that was pretty comprehensive

I looked into this, What is full model number THM5421C1008/U ??? is that it?

IF it is, The thermostat you purchased will not work and you will need to get the thermostat that matches that equipment which is TH9421 VisionPRO IAQ Thermostat

How many wires do you have at that the thermostat now?

the module just shows thm5421c, i have 5 wires there now, the heat works but only the gas, NOT the heatpump (compressor not coming on)so the module is to connect the newer xr15 compressor to the older furnace i guess. so is there another option besides the module, can it b e bypassed? if not then i guess i have to spend the big bucks on the correct stat. if that is the only option, do you know the wriing diagram then for the module?
