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.

Thermostat for baseboard heaters in series


The heaters need to be wired in parallel so they all receive the same voltage. If wired in series the first heater will receive proper voltage and the next heater will receive reduced voltage (Voltage Drop across first heater) and so on (Ohm's Law). You may want to have an electrician help you so you don't get electrocuted or burn up your heaters or your house. Hope this helps!

How do I wire up a F2544 baseboard heater with a single pole themostat


It sounds like you are not getting the correct voltage for the heating element. If you wired a single pole thermostat, and its a 220v unit, then it will not get hot enough, like you are saying. If its a 220 heater, you need a 2p2t thermostat. The parts supplier will know what this means.

Electric baseboard heater


You need a meter, it will be hard without this! If you have 220v in the wall, then think of it like this; each wire is 120v. Test to each other, you get 220v. The thermostat is a double pole, you said. So think of it like this, its an adjustable temperature controlled switch that lets electricity through at the temp. you set it at. If you have 120v from one wire connected to one end of the element, and the other 120v connected to the other end of the element, then it will work. DO NOT CONNECT THE 120V TOGETHER. IT MUST GO THROUGH THE ELEMENT FIRST. The thermostat should be between the power from the wall and the element, to control the temperature.

How do I wire up my fahrenheat F25408 baseboar heater?


Baseboard heaters are easy to hitch up. You can have a wall mounted thermostat or an integral thermostat. The diagram I have is for the integral thermostat. Follow the diagram and it should work.
