REMOVING OLD THERMOSTAT

Turn off power

Emerson White-Rodgers UNP310 Thermostat-FIG.3

CAUTION

To prevent electrical shock and/or equipment damage, disconnect electrical power to the system at the main fuse or circuit breaker box, or by flipping a switch at the air handler. Do not restore power until installation is complete.
To ensure the power to your heating and cooling system has been turned off, try to turn on heating or cooling by changing the temperature on your old thermostat.

Remove the old thermostat cover

Remove the old thermostat’s front cover form the wall base. Some covers pull off easily, while others may need to be released by using a screwdriver.
Your old thermostat may have a sealed glass tube containing mercury. Be careful not to damage the tube or dispose of the tube in your trash. For safe disposal information.

Label wires

Tip: Taking a picture with a camera or smartphone can help you not only remember how wires are connected to the terminals, but can also ensure that you label your wires correctly. Mislabeling the wires may result in a high energy bill or damage to your heating and cooling system.
For each wire that comes out of wall, follow these 4 steps.
Note that this step is very important for configuring your system in section 4.5. Please follow instruction carefully.

  1. Locate the terminal letter that the wire is connected to in the first column of the table
  2. Write down that old thermostat terminal letter in the second column
  3. Label that wire with the corresponding letter in the third column
  4. Disconnect the labeled wire carefully, and proceed to the next wire until all wires are labeled
    Please note that not all terminals may be used and that there’s no standard color code for thermostat wires, so your wire colors may vary. For your reference, we’ve included a terminal label reference chart below to help you connect the wires from your old thermostat to your new thermostat in case you get stuck.

Terminal labeling reference chart

If your current terminal has the following letter Write down that letter here Label the wires with the following letters  

Terminal function

RH, R, R5, 5 RH 24V Power (Heating)
RC RC 24V Power (Cooling)
C, X, B* C Common Wire
W, W1, W/E,

Aux/E, E

W/E 1st Stage Heat (for conventional system); 1st Stage Auxiliary Heat (for heat pump system)
If your current terminal has the following letter Write down that letter here Label the wires with the following letters  

Terminal function

W2** W2 2nd Stage Heat (Conventional) 2nd Stage Auxiliary Heat (Heat Pump)
Y, Y1 Y 1st Stage Compressor
Y2 Y2 2nd Stage compressor
G G Fan Relay
O, B*, O/B O/B Reversing Valve (for heat pump systems)
L L Heat Pump Diagnostic

Do you have a “B” wire?
Labeling the “B” wire can be tricky. It could be labeled as “C” or “O/B” depending on whether you have an “O” wire connected to your old thermostat. Please pay attention and follow the asterisk (*) comments below while labeling it.
* Label “B” as “C” only if the old thermostat also had a wire in the “O” terminal block. If there was no wire in the “O” terminal block, label the wire as “O/B”
** On heat pump systems with separate W2 and E wires, label both wires W/E (2 wires on one terminal)

Identify jumper wire

For terminal RC and RH:

On your old thermostat, if… Then, on your new thermostat…
Terminal RC and RH are connected with a jumper wire Leave the RC/RH jumper wire in its place
There’s only one R wire (RC, RH, R or R5) coming out of the wall Leave the RC/RH jumper wire in its place
Two separate R wires come out of the wall, and they are NOT connected by a jumper wire Clip the jumper wire between RC and RH on the back of the new thermostat

Remove old thermostat base

With all of your wires disconnected and properly labeled, you may now safely remove the thermostat base from your wall.

Emerson White-Rodgers UNP310 Thermostat-FIG.5

Tip: Worried about having your wires falling into your wall? Keep the wires secure by wrapping them around a pencil.

MOUNTING AND WIRING YOUR NEW THERMOSTAT

  1. Install new thermostat baseEmerson White-Rodgers UNP310 Thermostat-FIG.6Mount your new thermostat base using the supplied screws. Drill holes and insert wall anchors to secure the thermostat base to the wall, if necessary.
  2. Connect wires to corresponding terminal blocksEmerson White-Rodgers UNP310 Thermostat-FIG.7
    Match each labeled wire to it’s corresponding terminal on the mounted thermostat base. Insert each labeled wire into the hole of it’s matching terminal, and using the screwdriver, tighten the screw on the terminal block securely
  3. Identify system configuration
    Your wiring can help to determine the type of heating and cooling equipment installed in your home. Before attaching the front cover, use the following chart, and check the box next to the settings that match your new thermostat’s wiring. This information will be used in Step 4.5 to configure your thermostat.
