Reposition mounting plate over holes, pulling
wires through wiring opening. Loosely insert two
mounting screws into holes.

All wiring must comply with local electrical codes and
ordinances. Refer to Fig. 4 through 7 for typical hookups. A
letter code is located near each terminal for identification.
See Table 1 for terminal cross referencing information.

Adjust Fan Operation Switch,
Disconnect power before wiring to prevent
electrical shock or equipment damage.
The Thermostat fan operation switch, labeled FUEL
SWITCH is factory set in the F position. See Fig. 4. This
is the correct setting for most systems. If your system is
an electric heat system, set the switch to E. The E setting
allows the fan to turn on immediately with the heating or
cooling in a system where the G terminal is connected.
1. Connect the system wires to the thermostat. See
Fig. 8. A letter code is located near each terminal
NOTE: Hold the thermostat as shown in Fig. 9 to
minimize need for wire extenders.
Adjust System On-time, as Required
The system on-time is factory-set for a warm air, gas or
oil heating system. If you are installing it on another type
of system, the system on-time must be adjusted
accordingly by setting screws A and B on the back of the
thermostat. Use the heating system table shown in Fig. 3
as a guide. The system on-time should be optimized
according to the type of system to minimize room
temperature swings. Setting the screw out one turn
means turning the screw approximately 360° or one
complete turn. Setting the screw in means tightening the
screw completely down.
Securely tighten each terminal screw.
Push excess wire back into the hole.
Plug hole with nonflammable insulation to prevent
drafts from affecting the thermostat.
Table 1.Typical Wire Colors and Functions
In the event that you want longer furnace on-time,
readjust the screws A and B as follows:
Warm Air Furnace—set at the Hot Water setting (A—
out one turn, B—in).
Air Cond. Power
Electric Furnace—Leave at the Warm Air Furnace
setting (A—in, B—in).
Wire colors are typical; verify at heating/cooling
NOTE: This thermostat does not have a setting for
steam/gravity air. Cycles would not be long
enough for accurate temperature control.
