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.

A longer explanation is needed on these questions or I am not finding the whole question. I volunteer on allexperts.com and it is much clearer what help someone needs. Write to me at email@example.com or through allexperts.com and I will help you wire this. A baseboard heater should not be that complicated to wire up.
It should wire up like a 240 volt dryer, with the proper wire size and proper double pole breaker.
The heater will have the amperage and voltage rating on the unit, take that information and then measure how far from the breaker box you will be, to a hardware store. They can tell you and sell you the wire and breaker. aLSO TELL THEM WHAT BRAND BREAKER BOX YOU HAVE, it is written on the box somewhere.
The wire size will determined by the amps and the distance, the breaker will be sized to protect the wire, there will be either 2 hots and a neutral, or 2 hots and a neutral and a ground, older 240 devices were all three wire, now days most are four, the hardware store can tell you. You might have a red, black and white and green wire. Red would be one hot lead, black another hot, white neutral, green ground. The device will have either have the wires in a connection box or lugs labeled for hot, hot, neutral and ground. One way you wire nut the wire to each, the other you place under the lugs, at the breaker the hots are both ran through their own breaker, called a double breaker, the white will go on the neutral buss, and the green ground will go to the ground bar.
Hope this helps, it should not be a difficult job. or write me at firstname.lastname@example.org

A few companies sell child-proof covers that prevent little fingers and small objects from getting into the radiators. Try searching Child-safe baseboard heater covers in a google search or PexSupply.com.... we use them in daycare centers.

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.
PS: please rate my answer. Thank you.
