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.

SOURCE: hooking up the thermostat

Thermostats are typically low voltage only no more than 24volts that is supplied from the transformer in your heating unit. you need to look at your low voltage wiring that is in the furnace and write down the terminals that are hooked up. Usually (this is a very typical set up) red wire goes to R which supplies 24 volts. green goes to G powers fan motor, white to W terminal and blue or yellow goes to Y terminal this terminal will usually have another wire in its terminal with it to control an outdoor ac unit likely another red or white wire, and lastly the C terminal has a white wire. That is for a basic heating and cooling system just match how they are hooked up at the main unit to the terminals on your thermostat. the thermostat is just a switch breaking and connecting terminals that allow voltage to carry through it. Shut down your unit while working on it as not to blow the transformer otherwise you are gonna need to replace it to if it isnt fused, that is probably my most common repair from people who have tried to change their own thermostat. Hope this helps

SOURCE: no i didn't. I need instructions for wiring a

you have baclk and red wire supply and a black and red wire to load (baseboard).
your switch will have 2 black and 2 red.
connect blk supply to 1 black on switch ( it doesn't matter which one)
connect red supply to 1 red on switch
then
connect black from baseboard to black switch
connect red from baseboard to red switch
if multiple baseboards that have several loads at thermostat then just connect baseboard blacks together and reds together before connecting at switch.

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.
