Hello, I need to know the following in detail: 1. Did the problem begin when you installed the NEST2. What wire colors go to which terminals on the NEST3. Does your unit that sits outside run in both summer and winter for both heating and cooling, or does it just run in the summer for cooling, We can go from there.
