Two wires to the T-stat should go to W and C which is W for heat call and C represents common!
When the T-stat is set to heat it will connect the 24v red wire to the W terminal therfore sending 24v to the heater and the common wire completes that circuit. Make sure to use an inline fused wire to test so you do not blow your transformer. Easier to replace a fuse then a T-form

I am putting baseboard hot water heat in an older house that hase outlets in the way, is it alright to mount the baseboard above outlets . It would be about 12 inches.


Not sure that would pass code. But, you may want to check with the local building inspections dept in your area, before doing it. The other down side will be, the heat will start 12" of the floor rather than floor level. As you are aware, heat rises, so that would mean the lower 12" to the floor is going to remain cold. Want feel very good on bare feet that just jumped out of bed.

How do I hook the wires up for a electric baseboard heater


this heater can usually be wired from either side. meaning your wiring can be brought through the wall inside of one side or the other.

the wiring you bring in to this unit needs to be 12g or larger.

it needs to be on a dedicated circuit. that means you cant splice into any other line. it needs to be for your baseboard heaters alone. that is code and wouldnt want to sleep in a house with baseboard heat that didnt have a dedicated circuit.

baseboard heat is most economical to run with 240v units. 120 is going to cost more to run.

you will need a thermostat either built into the unit or a thermostat unit mounted in the wall to run it.

dont mount the thermastat over the heater. I shouldnt have to explain why.

a 240 volt circuit run from your panel on a 20 amp breaker consists of 3 wires, a ground and a black and white.

in a 240v configuration both the black and white are hot and you must wrap some black tape around the white wire where it shows in your breaker panel and at the handy box in which you have installed the thermostat and then where it enters the heater. this re-designates the wire as a hot instaed of nuetral this gives you to black hots.

you hook the white and black wire to the line in side of the thermostat which should be the two red wires.then the two black load out wires of the thermastat run to your heater. hook your ground (green or bare) to the box if its metal and pig tail it to the ground screw on the thermastat, then out of that pigtail to the heater along with the two hot wires.

you will find a bare ground solid copper wire fixed to the inside connect your ground.

you will find two other wires they are both hots you will connect one of your hots to one of them and the other to the remaining.

what it looks like is an element sitting in the housing the housing is the baseboard and you have a hot wire running through a wire way to the other side and connecting to it and one hot stays on the side you brought the wires to.

in other words since you can wire it from either side you have to have a way to get the energy to one side or the other and they supply a way.

as long as this is labled as a 240 unit both wires are hot. take the covers off both ends you will notice the wire traveling from one side to the other. your goal is to have one hot connected at one end of the fillament and the other hot you brought in to the other end. the best way to hook up multiple heatrs is to have branch lines from the thermastat toeach heater, not to daisychain them one to the other becuase you will have voltage drop as a heater is using it before passing the voltage down the line leading to poorly functioning heaters

Marley md26 line voltage thermostat


The Black Wires from the md26 are your load(the heater) and the red lines are your line(power). The lines are also paired up on the thermostat with a red and black on the left and are red and black on the right. In the actual heater connect the black to the black wire and the white to the white and connect the grounds. In the thermostat connect the black from the heater to left side black( remember there are pairs left(black, red) right (black, red) and the white to the right side black connect the black from your power to the left side red and the white from your power to the right side red. Should be ready to go.

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.
