I have a base board heater in the basement. It's never been connect up the wiring is all there from the breaker box to the heater,it has 1blk.1white and the ground. heater has 1blk. 1 red & therostat


You need to take a meter and see if you have 220 volts between the black and white. if you do have 220 then hook white wire to the red on the on the thermostat and the black to the black wire on the thermostat. on the other side of the thermostat hook the red and black to the red and black to the heater

Hello there
It sound alright but You should draw out a wiring diagram on paper first before you tackle the job that way you know you're doing it right.

Good luck Dickson

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.

I am trying to replace a electric baseboard heater that is 220 volts and I am unsure about the wiring. the heater has a red and black wire and there is a white and black wire coming out of the wall.How do...


if ur are replacing the heater and it was originally 220/240 ur wiring should b ok but to b sure trace the line wire back to breaker panel and look at breaker the white and the black should b hooked up to separate breakers if the white is hooked up to a ground bar usually on the inside side of the panel and the black hooked up to breaker ur line is 110/120 and will cause problems when hooked up. if the lines r 220/240 than red can hook up to white and black to black

I have 2-240V (4.2V) basebaord heaters, Need Wiring Diagram


you get 120V from any phase (black OR red) to neutral
you get 240V from phase to phase (between black and red) and in this scenario you don't need the white wire.
So for you, connect the black to 1 pole of the breaker and the red to the other pole, connect the green wire to the ground strip and you are done.
A white wire is NEVER connected to a circuit breaker anyway, it is a grounded wire, it would be like connecting a green wire to a black wire, bad idea.
the National electrical code specifies red and black wire color for 240VAC circuits.
As Ask Hank mentionned, nothing wrong with 10/3 wire.

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.

How to wire 1 plf 1504d heater


I have the solution, finally after looking for 2 days.

First off, I couldn't quite put it all together based on what I was reading. I finally tracked down the Fahrenheat web site (www.fahrenheatpro.com). And called tech support (800) 452-4179.

To wire 2 BB units to 1 tstat.

1. Use #14 wire for 0-12 amps, #12 wire for 12.1 to 16 amps and #10 wire for 16.1 to 24 amps.

2. I have a 12/2 wire going from the tstat to BB#1 and another 12/2 wire going from BB1 to BB2.

3. Onthe left side of the heater, you will have 2 sets of black wires tied together with a nut (on right side it's 2 sets of Black/Red wires). You can use either side of the heater. For the purpose of explaining this, lets use the left side, 2 sets of black wires.

4. Undo one of the sets of black wires (it doesn't matter witch), the other set will be left alone.

5. Take the black wire coming from the tstat and tie it into one of the black wires from the heater and the black wire going to the second BB unit. So you will have those 3 wires tied together with a nut at the 1st BB unit.

6. Take the white wire coming from the tstat and tie it into the other black wire from the heater and the white wire going to the other BB heater. Again, you will have 3 wire tied together here.

7. At the second BB unit, tie the black wire coming from the 1st unit to one of the black wires in one of those 2 sets of black wires. Again, only undo 1 set of wires at the 2nd unit, leave the other one alone. Tie the white wire coming from the 1st unit to the other black wire.

8. Make sure ground wire in grounded at the tstat and at both BB units.

Hope this helps...... If I was less clear than I hoped, call tech support and they will walk you thru it....

Kevin.
