Connecting 240 volt singer baseboard heater

I'm connecting a Singer 6' electric base board heater and can't remember how it was wired before i disassembled it to paint the metal cabinet.
There are two leads coming from the heating elements and two wires coming from what i believe is an internal thermostat. I'm using a wall mounted thermostat and want make sure I connect it right

Power from your panelbox goes to the wall mounted thermostat. From there a two wire goes to the heater. In the heater one overload wire goes to the heater. the other overload wire goes to one side of your LINE. the other wire goes to the heater wire.[LINE]

For PROPER 120 volt wiring U have 2 colored Insulated wires(= guage of wire # /2: e.g. 12/2, 14/2 -bigger guage# = smaller thickness )+ an uninsulated ground -3 wires in all
1): BLACK-/Line-/POWER LEG-/ wire;
-which would attach to the 'gold' colored Contact point on a
Duplex Outlet)
2) WHITE/ Line/Neutral wire:
which would attach to the 'silver' colored Contact point on a
Duplex Outlet)
3) RAW COPPERwire/ GROUND wire;
which would attach to the GREEN colored Contact Point on
a Duplex Outlet)
In 240 VOLT WIRING their is a fourth that is a second
POWER LEG wire needed
4) RED (as in 12/3 wire- e.g.) Or WHITE (as in 12/2 wire) In so 240 VOLT wired DUPLEX outlet would have two gold contact points, one of the two of each slots on each plug would be horizontal, the WHITE wire of 12/2 romex would be used as the second POWER LEG--GROUND would be connected to correct Contact Point-GREEN-as in 120 volt oulet, THERE IS NO NEUTRAL in 3 wire - 240 Volt- wiring---
{check WEATHERHEAD-where wires come into house from pole- 2 black wires/ LEGS- intwined with silver support wire (the Ground) - needed for household 240 VOLT applications- Some Electric -major appliances-(e.g. Clothe Dryers)- use a NEUTRAL-
That should enable yourself with enough information to hurt yourself --Unless you make sure all POWER IS TURNED OFF to the wiring you are attempting to reconfigure for what ever reason.

Electric Hydronic Baseboard Heater, 240 Volt: WHEN I TURNED ON MY ELECTRIC BASEBOARD HEATER THER...

My PLF504 detonated this morning (11-25-2010). It worked fine for two years then BANG. Room was lit by flame coming from center (left to right) of unit. I wrote Marley asking them to honor the 10 year heater element warranty. Also, no burnt wires at thermostat connection, no dust bunnies on the fins. Source of fire was the fluid filled encapsulated heater core. Thank God, circuit breaker tripped and wall was tiled.

Replacing old with new

Are the heaters rated at the same voltage, if so just connect the white to one heater wires and the black to the other heater wire..Does the white wire have a tape around it. If it does that indicates that it is a 120 volt cuircuit and not a neutral, which means you have a 240 volt supply. Make sure your heater is 240 vac.

Basboard heater installation

if the heater is 120 volt or 240 volt its really pretty easy. at either end is a cover. remove the cover and you'll see a wirenut or maybe just two wires. one side has an integral thermostat. connect your supply to the two wires on the thermostat. connect the other end in your breaker box with the appropriate sized circuit breaker. wire size feeding it will depend on its current draw. how many watts is the heater? 1500 watts will draw 6.25 amps at 240 volts so you can use 14 ga wire. 2000 watts will draw 8.3 at 240 volts - so 14 ga is still ok. 2500 watts at 240 draws 10.41 amps. 3000 watts draws 12.5 amps at this stage I'd use 12 gauge on a 20 amp breaker.
