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.

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.

SOURCE: hooking up the thermostat

Thermostats are typically low voltage only no more than 24volts that is supplied from the transformer in your heating unit. you need to look at your low voltage wiring that is in the furnace and write down the terminals that are hooked up. Usually (this is a very typical set up) red wire goes to R which supplies 24 volts. green goes to G powers fan motor, white to W terminal and blue or yellow goes to Y terminal this terminal will usually have another wire in its terminal with it to control an outdoor ac unit likely another red or white wire, and lastly the C terminal has a white wire. That is for a basic heating and cooling system just match how they are hooked up at the main unit to the terminals on your thermostat. the thermostat is just a switch breaking and connecting terminals that allow voltage to carry through it. Shut down your unit while working on it as not to blow the transformer otherwise you are gonna need to replace it to if it isnt fused, that is probably my most common repair from people who have tried to change their own thermostat. Hope this helps

Hi, this is very easy for you to do.The 12/2 Romex wire coming in is the power which you know. What you do need to know, is the voltage coming in? Sometimes they will use 12/2 Romex with ground for 220, 240, operation. You need to know if the T-stat is Line voltage 220, or 240 volt. You have to have the same voltage for both for it to control. Reguardless of the voltage, lets say it is in the 220 and up range. You take one of the 12/2 wires, white or black and hook it to the black or red on the T-stat and the white to the other one, red or black. Thats it, you are done! If the T-stat is 2-pole I am sure it is a high, Line votage T-stat. Best of Luck,

1st you will belucky if you actually have 240 v, most
homes are usually 220v. In youyr case you need to start at the breaker panel.

This is an example:
You have a Double Pole Single Throw breaker. Black
Wire is hot and goes into one side of breaker,if you havea red wire that goes into the other have of the
breaker.

The white wire ties in the nuetral bar and the bare wire into the ground bus bar. At the unit you hook up the red and the black wire which will supply the 240
Volts, you could tie the white and the ground wires together into the grounding terminal
