You undo the regular wire nut, and attach your two wires to feed the heater. To the two wires that you now have.

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

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'm replacing a non-hydronic electric baseboard heating unit with a Fahrenheat hydronic one. My old unit was 240v using 2 conductors plus bare ground wire. The fahrenheat (PLF series) unit's instructions...


Hello. The red and the black are the hot wires. Therefore, connect one of your conductors to the red and the other conductor to the black. Use wirenuts. The bare ground wire should be solidly attached to the new unit's green wire using a wire nut.

No i didn't. I need instructions for wiring a


you have baclk and red wire supply and a black and red wire to load (baseboard).
your switch will have 2 black and 2 red.
connect blk supply to 1 black on switch ( it doesn't matter which one)
connect red supply to 1 red on switch
then
connect black from baseboard to black switch
connect red from baseboard to red switch
if multiple baseboards that have several loads at thermostat then just connect baseboard blacks together and reds together before connecting at switch.

Wiring for baseboard heater


I hope you are using a Line Voltage Thermostat!! First, make sure that the power feeding the thermostat is coming from a two pole breaker of the correct amperage (20 amp). If you are using 12-2 wire with ground then please mark the white wire with black tape at each end to identify it as a HOT power source and not a Neutral wire (which is a grounded lead). Do the same for the 12-2 wires feeding the baseboard heater from the Line Voltage Thermostat. The wires from the thermostat (One Black & one White w/black tape) will be wired to each one of the two wires (one Black & one Red or two Black wires) at the baseboard heater. It doesn't matter which wire from the thermostat is wired to which wire at the heater, just as long as there is one wire to one and one wire to the other.(eg. Black from stat to Black at heater/White w/blk. tape from stat to Red at heater OR Black from stat to Black at heater/White w/blk. tape from stat to OTHER Black at heater). I have seen baseboard heaters with two black wires or one black and one red wire. Hope this helps, but if you are confused then please have an experienced tech. do it for you.

Marley md26 line voltage thermostat


The Black Wires from the md26 are your load(the heater) and the red lines are your line(power). The lines are also paired up on the thermostat with a red and black on the left and are red and black on the right. In the actual heater connect the black to the black wire and the white to the white and connect the grounds. In the thermostat connect the black from the heater to left side black( remember there are pairs left(black, red) right (black, red) and the white to the right side black connect the black from your power to the left side red and the white from your power to the right side red. Should be ready to go.
