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!

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.

I was wondering what size of wire is required to hook up a 1500 w baseboard heater.


You would need at least 1.5mm with 2mm preferable Cable.
1500Watts is 13 AMPS at 115Volts So you are going to need Industrial 3 core that can handle min 15 Amps @ 115V. Make sure you get fireproof cable too.

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.

Loud humming


If this is an electric resistance heater then there is no power supply or transformer. I had a baseboard heater that would hum loudly and I found there's a wire that runs along the bottom to connect the far end of the heat element to the electrical wiring at the supply end. This wire becomes magnetized from the current flowing through it and vibrates in the channel it runs through. I was able to open this channel and squirt a bit of silicone caulk in to keep the wire from vibrating and the hum is gone.
