Older model to new Honeywell/3611 model

I have a forced air heat/AC (furnace). The told thermostat isn't working well (buttons are sticky). I got a new one but the wiring doesn't resemble other thermostats.

Is the the 3611 Programmable Heat Pump thermostat. I am trying to be sure I move the wires correctly. I'm close to just throwing it out and getting one with similar wiring.

as the picture shows the old one has G,Y,W,Rh,Rc (Rh and Rc are coupled). The Yellow wire is blue in color.. not sure why.

The Orange is not connected.

The new one has B,E,C... R,W2,E,W1,Y,O,C,G, etc. Y and W1 seem to be coupled.
The manuals is: https://customer.honeywell.com/resou...0s/69-1081.pdf


From the pics I think I think I connect Red to R, Green to G, Yellow (blue in color) to Y, White to W1, and Orange to O.. what connects to W1?

Is that right?

See pics please

G = green
Y = blue (remove the jumper to W1)
W1 = white
R = red
C = orange

Your new thermostat is 16 years old an is intended for heat pumps.
You do not have a heat pump and should get another thermostat.
