First, my research into the Cadet model #09954 is a 240v unit. if it is wired to only 120v that may be your problem. I am not even sure it work work on 120v.

How to set heat for baseboard heat

They use a 120v thermostat you should be able to buy one wherever you bought the baseboard heaters. Be aware those heaters costs a lot of money to run and dry out your house like a desert buy a few room humidifiers when you get the thermostat. Make sure you use the correct size wiring to the baseboard heaters and the Tstat if you undersize the wires for the breakers involved you'll more than likely cause a electrical fire.

I have baseboard heating and not sure if i bought the right thermostat there is a switch inside fir gas/oil or water pump/elect. modle # rth2300/rth221

No. Baseboard heaters will use a 120v or 240 thermostat. The thermostat you have is for 24v low voltage only. Hope this helps!

What is the recommended circuit breaker for a 220 volt connection to a 6' baseboard heater

depends upon wattage of baseboard. I would guess about 20 -30 amps. Amps = Watts/Volts. Example, 1500 watts/220 volts = breaker size of 6.8 amps (add 25%) The only breaker available is a 15 amp breaker.

The baseboard is very noisy? Humming sound

there are clips that hold the actual element inside the enclosure.check to see they are loose or broken. a small amount of humming noise is normal while the heater is being energized expansion/ contraction of alumimun fins is normal.

Loose power when turing it on

sounds like it is wired incorrectly at the baseboard heater. BUT if it worked correctly before this, then you may have a bad thermastat. Wiring in two baseboards into one thermastat is a bit tricky, each time I do it I have to think it thru before hand to get it right. IF it has never worked right, again you probably have it wired in wrong at the baseboard.

Electric baseboard heater

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.
