Question about Honeywell CT87B ROUND HEATING&COOLING MECHANICAL THERMOSTAT - WHITE Heater
Three electric baseboard heats w/single thermostat, trips main breaker when flipped on ? help why is this happening
I had this problem once in an apartment I own. it was an EXTREMELY ease fix. my problem as that the set screws in the breakers were not tightened enough, and would cause heat to build up, and trip the breakers. so..... first try to tighten the set screws on your breakers.

Your load from the heaters is too great for the wire and breaker installed. Add up the wattage of the heaters and divide the answer by whatever voltage the heaters are and that will give you your draw in amps if this number is higher than 80 percent of the breaker rating then this is against code and wire and breker need to be upgraded.

The three heaters are too much load for the circut breaker that they are on !Are they all on one breaker or fuse? if so you may have to use seperate breakers for all heaters!
I hope this was of big help!
