I have 110 volts n each leg but not 220 across both why??


In a traditional North American residential electrical panel (120/240 volt, single phase), installing a single width or single pole circuit breaker, you would expect to read 120 volts from the breaker terminal screw to either ground or neutral. A double width or double pole breaker would provide 120 volts from either of the breaker terminal screws to ground or neutral AND it will provide 240 volts BETWEEN the TWO breaker terminals.

A single-width circuit breaker case that contains two handles is NOT a two pole circuit breaker (these are called "tandem" or "1/2 size" breakers). This is because a single width breaker engages only one "line" in the panel. A double width breaker will engage 2 "lines" as a triple width breaker would engage 3 "lines" of a 3 phase panel. A single wide breaker can not physically engage more than 1 "line" so it will never be able to pass 240 volts.

You must install a double width / double pole breaker to safely supply a 240 volt circuit / device.

Cadet baseboard heater


If I have your information right you have a black wire and a white wire marked red coming to the heater with 240 volts between them. You have a double pole unit mounted thermostat with a red and a black wire. Most double pole thermostats have two red and two black wires on them so I am not sure if you have a double or a single pole thermostat.There are also two wires going to the baseboard heater. One is connected to the element the other to a high limit switch which is then connected to the other end of the element. If the thermostat is a double pole the two red (or load) wires should connect one to each of the baseboard wires. The two black (line) wires should connect one each to the two incoming power leads. If it is a single pole thermostat the one red wire should connect to one of the baseboard wires the black should connect to one of the incoming power wires the remaining baseboard and power wires should then be connected together. Hope this helps

Replacing double pole 220 v with honewell ct410a two wire120/140v wiring diagram not clear


1 power wire (120v) will go to the thermostat and 1 power wire (120v) will go directly to the unit. The other wire on the unit will go to the other side of the thermostat. The safety precaution behind using a single pole to replace a double pole contactor is that you will always have 1 leg of power going to the unit. Many systems are designed like this from the factory, but it is always better to have a 2 pole to cut all power off to the unit unless it's in operation. The unit will still not work as long as it does not have both legs of power.
L1 to Thermostat T1 to Unit
L2 and T2 wired together.

This is only for 240v systems. 120v Will have 1 common and 1 power, therefore you will need to know which wire is which. Power to thermostat, common wired direct.

Can a 240 volt outlet be ran off this breaker and can a 240 volt electric baseboard heater be wired to it or should i use double pole breaker?


You need 240 breaker:
Notice that your 240V breaker is twice as wide as regular 120V breaker.
Notice that both switches are tied together on 240V breaker, making this a double-pole breaker.
