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

I have a large room in my basement where I would like to install four Marly 58" baseboard heaters to work off one thermostat. The units are rated at 1250 watts each for a total of 5000watts. I plan to...


Using the equation I = P/E where "I" is Amps, "P" is Watts, and "E" is voltage, we find that your 5000w circuit will have an Amperage of 20.83. A 22 amp tstat will work, it will just leave you no room for surges. I would suggest splitting the baseboard and using 2 thermostats. Hope this helps

How do I know if I have 240v when replacing old baseboard heaters


When you turned off the power to the heaters was the breakers a double (2 pole ) one? If so, then yes, it defintely is 240v. There are very few 110v baseboard heaters out there anyway. The best way to check is to have an electric meter and check it out for sure. Actually if you are working on electrical circuits and you do not have an electric meter to check if you have them shut down for sure, you are on dangerous ground. Always be safe and check before working on any circuit.

How do I wire up a F2544 baseboard heater with a single pole themostat


It sounds like you are not getting the correct voltage for the heating element. If you wired a single pole thermostat, and its a 220v unit, then it will not get hot enough, like you are saying. If its a 220 heater, you need a 2p2t thermostat. The parts supplier will know what this means.

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.
