Hey all, I need some help I just bought this home and am trying to install my wyze thermostat. I have had a nest before so familiar with the wiring mostly but this one is throwing me for a loop. I have attached annotated pictures in hopes someone can assist. When I tried to change my G wire to C on both ends the Wyze thermostat gave me an Error saying too many wires plugged in and showed all different wires plugged in that I didn’t
Use the C adapter that came with your wyze. The wires that you have labeled as going to the “furnace” actually go to your air conditioner compressor. leave those attached to the furnace board and move the other wires as the instructions for the C adapter will tell you to. Tell the wyze app during setup that your old thermostat has the following wires: Rc, Y, G, W
$75?That’s a blown fuse and a service call. Boards start at around $150, not including labor.
Might show the tech the diagram I made for you, if they’re not familiar with the wyze thermostat. You’ll still need to setup your thermostat properly on your phone.
Tried this and he installed the c adapter and it said the same thing. I had him just run a c wire and its the same error even with the c wire on there. However I just pressed skip but even then, I cant get it past the personalization screen. Keeps failing to communicate.
When you set up your thermostat, what wires did you tell it the “old thermostat” used? Because that’s what determines how many wires it thinks it needs connected. As for communication, it uses bluetooth to communicate during setup, so make sure your phone has bluetooth turned on. You can also try switching on airplane mode and manually re-enabling bluetooth, sometimes that can help.
So IDK what happened but the thermostat would NOT connect to my phone or network. Eventually had to contact Wyze customer support and they sent me a new unit and it worked perfectly fine right out of the box. I think my unit was just toasted. Overall happy now.
