I replace an old baseboard heater with a new Cadet baseboard heater installing BTF2 thermostat and wiring exactly from the old one. However, it doesn't work. Can you tell me what did I do wrong?
Thanks

Cadet baseboard heater


If I have your information right you have a black wire and a white wire marked red coming to the heater with 240 volts between them. You have a double pole unit mounted thermostat with a red and a black wire. Most double pole thermostats have two red and two black wires on them so I am not sure if you have a double or a single pole thermostat.There are also two wires going to the baseboard heater. One is connected to the element the other to a high limit switch which is then connected to the other end of the element. If the thermostat is a double pole the two red (or load) wires should connect one to each of the baseboard wires. The two black (line) wires should connect one each to the two incoming power leads. If it is a single pole thermostat the one red wire should connect to one of the baseboard wires the black should connect to one of the incoming power wires the remaining baseboard and power wires should then be connected together. Hope this helps

Yes it is acceptable and common practice. You do not need a neutral on a 220 Volt circuit. Just wrap it with black electrical tape so anyone who gets into the wiring later will know that both are hot. This is accepted by the National Electrical Code.

I need a diagram on abaseboard heater


The common usually goes staight to the unit, and the other wire, goes through the thermostat, and the ground wire hooks directly to the chasis of the heater.
If it is a 120 Volt, the white wire should be the common, and the black runs through the thermostat.
If it is a 220 Volt, it doesn't matter which wire goes through the thermostat.

I have a Cadet BTF2 Thermostat to mount to a baseboard heater. There are four wires. Two marked normally open and two are marked normally closed. Which two go to the 240 volt source? Thank you, MK

Cadet Thermostat


from the mod number it looks like you have electric baseboard. these do not have blowers in them they work off natural air movement. but heat up rather quickly. your gonna have to chk if baseboard is getting power to determine weather or not the t stat or the heater is not working. but first chk your circuit breakers. most heaters are 220v (double breaker)

Cadet baseboard heater not working


first... did this heater work properly in the past?? if not, the wiring may be incorrect..... but to answer your question the safety limit is usually on the left end of the baseboard (inside the small cover). it is the round thing that is installed inline on the wiring. replacing it is an easy fix... just be sure to turn off the electric power FIRST.

Baseboard heater cadet model


Check the circuit it is plugged into first with a tester or something else.
If it is 240v there are two hot wires.
You have to examine it first for power and then I would check the thermostat next.
You could have an open element.

Wiring on thermostat tl7235a1003


OK, here's my guess at this...I hope someone more knowledgable will confirm or correct me.

A line voltage thermostat switches the power to the baseboard heater. In other words, it's just like a wall light switch except it activates and deactivates based on the temperature.

I think your old model CT62 was wired exactly like a light switch. The hot wire to the light is broken then run to the wall switch and then back to the light so there's no neutral wire at a light switch box. This worked fine for your CT62 because it did not need power, it only needed to switch it.

The new model TL7235A1003 requires electrical power because it's programmable so you need both a hot wire and neutral wire at it's installed location. In addition you also need 2 wires leading to the baseboard heater so the thermostat can supply it's power.

I believe L1-L2 are to be connected to the hot/neutral wires, and the Load wires go to the baseboard heater.

If I am correct you will not be able to use this thermostat without some re-wiring.

Good luck.
