Hi,
\015\012Okay....two things to check on...
\015\012make sure that the terminals and the wires are matched in the t-stat and the furnace board...R-R Y-Y G-G W-W ....if everything matches up then you have a fried t-stat... What you are saying you have in the t-stat should be right... so it has to be one of these other scenario's...

I am installing a Mars 1/3 hp fan motor. It has a black wire,red wire, blue wire, yellow wire and (2) brown wire that go to a capacitor. May Furnace has Black power wire, red wire (speed) and white common. What wire is the common to the fan motor?? I hooked it up with black to black, red to red, and white to the blue. It ran fine for 5 min then it thid my breaker in bresker box???? If the blue was not common how could the motor run at all??

My Honeywell 4006 1017 aquastat normally opens at 160 and when the water heats up to 180 the blowers shut off. Mine does the reverse right now so I have to do it manually so I can turn it to 160 to shut the blowers off when the water heated to 180. If I don't the water keeps heating and once was way over 200. I have the red wire on top screw of the the Honeywell 1017 and black on the bottom screw. I am thinking maybe if I put the red one on the bottom and the black one on top it will rev

I have a Carrier 8000 weathermaker. Recently the blower motor began to run progressively slower and finally just bogged down. I replaced the motor, but the replacement motor has three speeds (red, blue and black wires) whereas the old motor had four (red, blue, black and yellow). Initially I hooked the new motor wires up to the circuit board the same way the old ones were, leaving an open spot where the old yellow wire was. New motor works, but at lower speeds, pushing less cool air. We liv

I have a Intertherm P3rA-042K that runs the ac at the same time as the heat strips. I have a Honeywell RTH3100c I have the red wire at R the Yellow at Y the Green at G and the W2 at aux. I had a jumper between Aux and E like the manual said but it makes no difference.
