Thermostat with external transformer

Is there a Blue thermostat wire at the air handler/AC? it might not be connected to anything.

Yes you are right. it’s not connected to anything. Got my hopes up when I saw it but no blue in the handler. Just this:

I tried the adaptor wyze gave and my handyman gave it his best shot and we still failed.

do you have a wider shot of the board, with more wires in view?

is this any better?

where does this blue wire go?

Man, you have great eyes to spot that. :slight_smile:

It goes to HEAT on the board.

here is the zoomed in shot.

Your image shows it goes here.

Which is to say, it’s unconnected, so strip back the insulation a bit and connect it to this C terminal with the white wire that goes to the common side of your A/C compressor contactor:

Bro you are a genius ! I finally got time to try this out and it worked on the upstairs thermostat. Will try the one downstairs tomorrow. Wyze support said the units were faulty :laughing:

Thank you again so much !
