All contector chartring and without load
In there is charring of the wires without the heater turned on and heating and it's a 240 volt system, there's something seriously wrong with wiring in the heater. Turn Off the circuit breaker in your home's breaker panel that feeds this heater and call an electrician. This is not a DIY repair. At best, it would be a very risky DIY repair.

If I understand you correctly the two black wires (from heater) are caped off with a wire nut and the black and red with crimp ons are attached to something? If so attack the black wire to one of the black caped off leads from heater and the other caped off wire to the white wire from the 10/2 cable. Make sure that that 10/2 wire is attached to a 2-pole breaker not larger than 30-amps.

I have a 240 volt
You are going to have to abandon one of the wires and probably change your outlet to match your cord. I would abandon the red wire. You will have to do this in the breaker panel itself. If you are not familiar or comfortable working in this panel then don`t. If you are then only connect the white and black wires to the breaker that feeds your outlet and your green will be your ground which should already be connected to the ground bar. It is possible that the black and red wires are already connected to the breaker and the white to the neutral bar (this is the way it should have been wired for four wires). If this is the case just remove the white wire and tape it off and don`t use it in your new outlet.
