    16 Seer Lennox unit

    I'm trying to get this 16 seer 2 stage condenser unit to run. This is in a brand new house trying to complete the start up. It has 3 wires coming out of the condenser instead of two. So it is a 2 speed compressor. The air hander blows out air, but the condenser does not run. According to the manual I have it wired up right. That seems kinda wierd though it is not running. So can anyone help me?

    Thanks

    The best advice I can give is don't touch it without someone who knows what they are doing is there.That is a expensive unit to miswire and mess it up.

    Has anyone used one of these units before? I'm using a honeywell vision pro 8000 with one heat and one cool.

    I do this for a living but have only been in the field for 4 years. I think I'm doing pretty good for the little experience that I do have.

    Thanks for all the help

    Yeah this is what the supervisor gave me was a one heat one cool thermostat on a 2 stage ac unit. I thought that was messed up. Why have the customer pay for a nice unit and not give them all the options the unit is capable of doing.

    I have the G61MPV series furnace.

    here is the wiring diagram that is in the furnace manual:

    tstat control term. strip outdoor unit
    w------W1
    r-------R
    g-------G
    c-------C------------------c
    Y2
    y-------Y1-----------------y

    That is how I have it wired up

    A pro 8000 will do anything you want it to except doing flips.Read the directions there not only there to fill the box.
