    first off let me say i'm sorry you had a team of installers that obviously had no clue about what they were installing. that said there should be a reputable dealer in your area that can stop out and fix this for you. to explain how to fix a fubar from someone that messed up is not likely on this site there could be numerous problems that may pop-up.what area of the country do you reside?

    One other recourse might be to call Payne (1-888-41PAYNE), explain the problem, and ask if they can be of assistance.
    What jurisdiction or even interest other than code compliance would his inspector have in this?

    The inspetor isn't going to know or care what the system operation is about...

    Another satisfied customer, Please deposit your quarters. Cheap install to save a few bucks. Gets screwed by an incompetant installer trying to be service tech and installer. Then cant figure out how to wire a t-stat. Gets a buddy to help him figure it out. Homeowner gets upset and comes here to get it done for free. Wonder if the business down the road has laid some guy's off. I still say this site should have a pay per question in a secure area for homeowners and let professionals give an honest answer and get a % of the cost to the homeowner. Just a thought..

    If this installer couldn't figure out how to wire the thermostat, what is the likelihood that the installation was done to code?

    I live in Vancouver, Wa. This surprising thing is that the installer has been working for the contractor (actually a friend of mine) for about 5 years so I know he's not a total novice. The contractor did say the last year his performance has gone down hill.

    I have decided to call and have the system tested and inpected. I don't want to pay to have it fixed 6 months from now when the compressor burns up...

    9mmnow, I would have gladly paid for advice. Like you said, there isn't a means to do that now on this site. I don't know if the site is funded by the members or just by sponsers, but at a minimum I would be more than happy to make a donation to the site.
