Hello - I'd appreciate any help that you are willing to give. I have a
natural gas heater. I am replacing an old thermosat with a new
programmable unit. When I removed the old unit, I flagged my leads and
taped them to the wall (2-wires only)... Somehow they came untaped and
slipped into the wall. In the process of recovering them, The flags
came loose and now I don't know which is which. I tried metering, but
there is no voltage present (I'm not sure if there should be...)
Upstream is an ITT general controls 860 gas valve. The 2 screws that
the old wiring are attached to both say TH (for thermostat, I'm
guessing), The opposite screws (going to the gas, I'm guessing) are
both labelled PG. If there's any question of doing damage, I'll call
in a professional. But it seems a bit of a shame for 2 screws....
Thank you (And there's no need to tell me that I'm an idiot. I already
you're making it a lot harder than it really is. your t-stat is
opening and closing a circuit. twist both wires together and the gas
heater operates. did it matter which direction you twisted the wires?
If your new digital t-stat doesnt have batteries, buy a digital one
that does. then hook either of the two wires to Rh and the other to
Cause in the South it's counter-clockwise, opposite in the North.
The REAL question is what do you do when you're right at
the equator. (See answer below)
YOU DON"T NEED HEAT AT THE EQUATOR! (so use a jumper)
Why would we "Give" help? This is the business that we are in. If I
tell you how to fix it for free, Im taking food off the table for the
service guy in your area. If we all did that, how would we be able to
afford our internet connections to give you all this advice.
Please stop begging in here for free advice. The utility companys dont
give you free gas, oil, electric or phone service do they? Your car
mechanic doesnt tell you how to fix your car for free, does he? Your
doctor doesnt give you free office visits, does he/she? How about your
lawyer.......they dont talk to you on the phone or in person for free,
do they? Open your wallet Ren. Let the money flow..............
As an individual, I'll give help to anyone who asks it - if it's in my
ability. I'll give equipment if I'm no longer using it. I'll give
training - not worrying if that person is going to be my future
competition. But right now, I'd rather spend the $25.00 on an
educational book than put money in your pocket.
Oh my can't aford you. With you whit, excuse me. & you just remember, Next
time you open the hood to your vehicle and "repair" something you think you
know how to fix, remeber what you said you advice for free, THEN WHY DO YOU
READ & POST HERE
Here's a little clue Steven. The last time I lifted the hood on any of
my vehicles (company, personal or pleasure) it was to check fluid
levels. I dont change oils, spark plugs, air filters or anything else.
I let the "quicky lube" places do the simple crap and the mechanic
gets the other shit.
By the way, .......you need to learnt Engleshh a wee bit betterz
Problem here is all too often the money trail ultimately leads to some third
Question--when was the last time you PRODUCED anything that your company
could ACTUALLY sell here ( or better yet, abroad ) for a fucking profit ?
I know you better that that, so dont try and tell me that you don't care,
They birds always go back home in order to roost...
