Replacing a Simple Comfort 2001 thermostat for a Honeywell RTH6580WF

I'm replacing my Simple Comfort 2001 thermostat for a Honeywell RTH6580WF smart one. I could not get it working, and I have reverted to the old one.

I'm trying to figure out why there is a jumper between the Y and W.

According to the SC 2001 manual:

Y is Cooling control
W is Heating control

I imagine that my system has only one module and a reversing valve that is getting triggered by B.

Am I correct? Should I jump Y and W on the new thermostat?

You should not need the jumper. Some thermostats are really dumb and with heat pumps need the jumper as there is no way to tell them that you have a heat pump. New thermostats you program and it handles everything - connect the wire to Y only. Since you have a B wire you do need to connect to the O/B terminal and tell the thermostat you have B - activate on heating.

did you trace the wires to the furnace/boiler control board? Are they connected Y..Y, etc? Hard to see the jumper in the picture...

Odd, but I am also not a pro

I've traced the wires to the heat/cooling pump. It proved to be useless. The wires end on a series of relays with no clear indication of what they are.

My system is a WATER SOURCE HEAT PUMP.

I've found hard to find any compatible programming as well.

Programme #1 seems to be the most compatible.

Those are flying leads and should be shown in a wiring diagram on one of the service doors to your unit.

This should be all you need........
G - green -----> G
B - blue --------> O/B
Y - brown ------> Y
C - black -------> C
R - red ---------> R/Rc

Function 1 - 1
Function 2 - 2
Function 3 - 1
