First let me say that I'm a newbie and have zero electrical experience. I'm an IT Guy and thought "Hey, its electronic, so I can probably figure it out."
I appreciate any feedback/suggestions you folks may offer.
I have installed a $20 Honeywell thermostat and the air blows, but not cold. The AC Unit wont kick on outside. This only happened after I installed this new STAT. I have a 5 wire bundle and an additional 2 wire bundle.
5 Wire Colors:
G - Fan R - Return W - Heating Y - Cooling B - Common
2 Wire Colors:
R - ?? W - ??
As you can see from my photos, I have connected 4 of the 5 wires, based on the obvious W to W, R to R, etc etc markings. I do not know if I need to hook up the black. I am almost sure that the reason I do not have the AC Unit kicking on, is due to the 2 wire red and white not being connected.
My question is, where do the 2 wire red and white wires connect on the Thermostat?
Again, I really appreciate you folks taking the time to reply
