Honeywell RTH5160 Wiring Conventional Systems

Alternate wiring (conventional systems)
If labels do not match terminals, connect wires as shown below (see notes, below).
NOTES:

Honeywell RTH5160 Wiring Conventional Systems

  1. If you must connect both R and Rc wires, set the R Slider Tab to the down position (2 wires).
  2. If your old thermostat had both R and RH wires,  set the R Slider Tab to the down position (2 wires). Then connect the R wire to the Rc terminal, and the RH wire to the R terminal.
  3. If your old thermostat had only 1 C or C1 wire, connect it to the C terminal. If your old thermostat had 2 C or C1 wires, wrap each separately with electrical tape and do not connect them.
  4. C does not power the thermostat display or operations; batteries are always required.

Honeywell RTH5160 Wiring Heat Pump

Connect wires: heat pump

  1. Match each labeled wire with same letter on new thermostat.
  2. Insert the wires into the matching terminal.

NOTE: If you have difficulty inserting wires, you may have to press down the terminal push button next to the corresponding terminal.
Labels don’t match?
If labels do not match letters on thermostat, see “Alternate wiring (conventional systems)“ above.

Honeywell RTH5160 Wiring Heat Pump

Honeywell RTH5160 Alternate wiring (for heat pumps only)

NOTES:

  1. Keep R Slider Tab in the up position (1 wire).
  2. If your old thermostat had both V and VR wires, stop now and contact a qualified contractor for help.
  3. If your old thermostat had separate O and B wires, attach the B wire to the C terminal. If another wire is attached to the C terminal, stop now and contact a qualified contractor for help.
  4. If your old thermostat had Y1, W1 and W2 wires, stop now and contact a qualified contractor for help.
  5. C does not power the thermostat display or operations; batteries are always required.
  6. This model doesn’t support the heat pump fault alert (L/A terminal). If this is desired, please contact a contractor for replacement model.

Honeywell RTH5160 Battery replacement

Batteries are required to provide power. Install fresh batteries immediately when the low battery icon appears. The icon appears about two months before the batteries are depleted. Even if the low battery icon does not appear, you should replace batteries once a year, or before leaving home for more than a month. If batteries are inserted within two minutes, the time and day will not have to be reset. All other settings are permanently stored in memory, and do not require battery power.
NOTE: When replacing batteries, alkaline batteries are recommended.
