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.

Two wires to the T-stat should go to W and C which is W for heat call and C represents common!
When the T-stat is set to heat it will connect the 24v red wire to the W terminal therfore sending 24v to the heater and the common wire completes that circuit. Make sure to use an inline fused wire to test so you do not blow your transformer. Easier to replace a fuse then a T-form

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,

CAN I WIRE A 2 WIRE NOMA NON PROGRAMMABLE THERMOSTAT TO A 240 V BASEBOARD HEATER AND HOW. 2 BLACK WIRES ON THE THERMOSTAT. 3600W@240 VOLT


To the best of my knowledge, Noma does not make a high voltage stat (M# would be more helpful). You most likely have a heating only stat that operates on 24VAC. Also, at that wattage, the wires on your thermostat would need to be a minimum of 12ga.

Problem wiring 240amp baseboard heaters


12 gauge wire sounds under sized for the application. And 20 amp 240 v breakers might be sufficient if you where wiring the heaters separately. But be sure that your wiring is not romex - because romex is an insulator and is not permitted in conduit. I would suggest that you up size your wire to 10 guage and your breaker to 30 amp as well. Then double check your heater wiring connections to insure that they're wired the same throughout.

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.
