Thread: No Heat!

  1. #1

    No Heat!

    I installed a new programmable thermostat last spring, a Hunter 44860. It cools perfectly but will not come on for heat. At the time I thought it was wired correctly, but cannot be sure now. It works perfectly if I switch it to cool. When I switch to heat, I cannot even get the blower fan to run. It is an electric 7-wire heat pump system. Here is how I have it wired:

    Wire - Terminal - Usage
    --------------------------
    Yellow - Y1 - Compressor Stage 1
    White - W2 - Aux Heat
    Green - G - Fan Control
    Red - RC\R - 24VAC
    Brown - C - 24VAC Common
    Orange - O - Reversing Valve Cool
    Black - E - Emergency Heat

    There are no jumpers, and there were none on the old thermostat if I recall correctly. Can anybody help me?

    Was there any kind of option on it to switch to gas or electric heat? other than that probably need to get a
    service company out to help you figure it out.

    Yes, there is in the systems settings. It was originally set to conventional but I changed it to heat pump and it is set correctly for electric.

    The heat worked last winter and the home is only a year old, so hopefully it is not the system

    will not be happy to see that, just like to see you get off on a good start.

    Sorry, this is not a DIY help site, you need to call a pro for help. Good luck, let us know what it was!
