Question about Fahrenheat Electric Convector Baseboard Heater, 240 Volt
Wondering how to wire heater have 12-2 to t-stat from panel and then have 12-2 to baseboard unsure of what goes to what thanks for any info.
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.
