SOURCE: Honeywell HZ517 Baseboard Heater
This troubleshooting approach may be sound, but you need a deep security star screwdriver to open the heater up. I have looked in specialty tool and electronics shops and no one has a screwdriver that gets in deep enough. You won't go anywhere without this screwdriver, so if anyone can suggest a source, that would be great.

From the two red and two black wires (and the specs in the pdf), your new thermostat sounds like it's designed to directly control the line voltage (120 or 240) to the heater. That's the usual way baseboard heaters are controlled.
Could your wires be red, black, and (old, yellowed) white, the standard colors in a 3-wire power cable? Just the red and black should be enough to control a 120-volt heater so I don't understand what the white would have been used for. If it were my heater I'd take off the cover(s) -- with the power off, of course -- and find out what those wires actually connect to.

Is there a setting on your thermostat that makes the unit stay on for 10, 15, 20, 25 minutes after you reach set temp. You can change this setting by looking at your manual for the thermostat. Not sure if there is one for this thermostat but mine has one. Mine was running 15 min after set temp and making it cool down 2 degrees lower than set temp. Hope this helps.
