How to wire a coleman mach thermostat

IMPORTANT: I want to be as simple as possible for everyone to understand. But for the standard wiring diagrams, please see them near the bottom of this wiring guide.

The easiest way to wire a  Coleman mach thermostat is to cut the wires after the wire harness and simply connect the wires from your thermostat to those cut as you can see in the following image.

That way you won’t have to study what wire colors go on what wire colors, you will just match up the wires based on the colors and you will be good to go.

Another way to wire your Coleman Mach thermostat; If you have wires like in the image below, connect the wires as follows.

  • The blue wire from the thermostat bundle it up with the large white wire and a blue wire from the wall.
  • The gray wire from the thermostat attach it to  the smallest white wire from the wall.
  • The green wire goes onto the green wire.
  • The white wire from the thermostat goes on the medium white wire from the wall.
  • Yellow from thermostat goes onto red and red from thermostat goes on red or brown wire if you are a a brown wire. And wire the reset as in the image.

Troubleshooting coleman Mach thermostat After Wiring

No low fan operation

 Start by checking for the 12 VDC between GL and B at the low voltage terminal strip in the ceiling assembly.  If there is voltage, check the voltage  between the thermostat’s  red and blue wires so it does not restore the voltage.

Furnace not working

Check for 12 VDC between the white and the blue wire at the thermostat. If there is voltate then the problem is probably not with the thermostat. If there is not voltge, you might want to check for 12 VDC between the blue and red wire. If there is not voltage, your may have a blown fuse.
