Judy,

The “Thermostat Installation” walk through should have been packaged with the thermostat itself.

If you don’t have it, send me your fax number and I’ll whip it over to you.

I used to get them from the Larson Tech Center, just give their Tech Line a call. It's not difficult, just unplug it first.
You'll get the hang of it quickly.

Even I was able to do this! Of course, I had to climb down from my workbench three times to make sure it was really unplugged before I cut the first wire. Felt like I was in the bomb squad!

You shouldn't have to cut any wires.

If you leave the unit plugged in, it's more exciting and a bit more challenging. It’ll leave you with a “tingling” feeling all over.

Been there; done that!

Give me a break! I rewired the thing over ten years ago! I was just trying to get across the "make sure it's unplugged" concept.

I followed the directions to the letter (don't remember where I put something I filed last week much less what those directions were) and I even talked on the phone to a tech guy from Seal.

I could have hired an electrician to do it but I figgered he's never read the directions and I trusted myself more! LOL!

PS - My press has been peachy keen since I rewired it - so whatever I did it was right!
