I do not know how to change my carrier programmable

This answer was rated:

I do not know how to change my carrier programmable thermostat
JA: Just to clarify, do you think this is a larger HVAC problem, or something specific to the thermostat?
Customer: something just with the settings I had the unit checked about a week and he said that the unit was ok
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: If I can but if not I will get someone
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Some times we can set it but it will not hold the termpature

Hello, you should be able to gently pry the thermostat itself, from its wall mount.... then holding it your hand, get me the numbers printed on the back of the thermostat, I can pull the manual for you.

Next look at the wall mount plate, tell me how many wires and which color wire goes to each lettered terminal.

I can advise you from there.

Important note about RATING my work:

I am a retired mechanical engineer and HVAC/electrical/ refrigeration and boiler contractor... with 56 years in this business. The last 20 of those years consulting for major firms nationally..

All I ask is please respect me and my input by selecting the***RATING LINK***at the top of your page, that is the only way I am credited through the site.Rating does not affect your charges nor ability to refund if not satisfied.

.

If you need to be coached through a full diagnosis/repair,and wiring etc. for up to two days, and wish to be trained to use test instruments...... that goes well beyond' Just a simple Answer' of course, and goes beyond what most other experts here offer.....rate my simple answer so far positively.. and I will deliver that training and coaching to you All on the same dime so to speak.

.

Lacking a positive rating I can spend days helping a person at my own expense and loose my shirt,shorts and socks on the deal.

.

Attach a close up photo of the wiring diagram glued to the inside of the blower access door and I will mark it up with troubleshooting instructions then follow up with step by step training and coaching until you have a solution.

.

Photo must be exceedingly well focused. Use the 'add files' link next to your send button to get the photo to me.

Phone call offers:

If you wish to accept the companies $25 phone call offer, if indeed they send you one, this will go a *lot faster, but it IS 100% optional... or we can continue here in this dialog box at no additional charge.
