# I am replacing 2 100" long Electromode baseboard heaters. The service from the thermostat is on the lefthand end facing the unit.They are 240 volts and I do not know what the wattage is. 1.Can I use the present thermostat for your unit. 2. Can I connect both together as they were before. 3.The room is 20x30 ft. with a high ceiling and I still have 2 Electromode units as described on the other side of the room that I am not replacing at this time. They are completely seperate from the units I am replacing.What units do you suggest?

Ahh watts = volts x amps
or power = electric potential x current

Wattage is amperage x current

just use the formula to determine the wattage

the amperage should be listed on the name plate.

formula goes:

wattage= amperage x 240

hope to be of some help

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

### 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.

CHECK AT THE HEATER, ONE LEGG OF THE BREAKER CAN BE BAD, THESE ARE VERY COMMEN PROBLEMS AD OUT OF 200 HEATER PROBLEMS IT IS USALLY ONE OF THESE, PLEASE LEAVE FEED BACK IF THIS HELPS YOU THANKS

### Electric Baseboard thermostat wiring

what is the make of the thermostat? are the heaters 240 volts?

### 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.
