If there is a letter on the electrical scheme right next to the wire it might be your answer ("BLK" would be black, "BL" or "BU" is blue, R, RD, RED stands for red wire). If the is no such thing on the schematic, it is best to not plug the wire by try and error. Red is not always the positive by the way, for instance, the red wire on my car radio is "hot at all time" because it is the voltage supply to keep the radio station memorized on it and the Yellow is the actual power supplier so the radio will turn on. Try calling the customer support in any doubt

Go to Bryantrv.com and click on the Service Manuals link. It sounds like he missed a wire hooking it back up. There are usually 3 wires, red for hot, connected to the furnace and also a small blue wire with a red stripe, another small blue wire connected to varying colors but comes from the thermostat and a ground, usually yellow. There is a relay on the fan side of the furnace and a thermal safety on the back side, under the burner. The fan gets it's power from this relay and the furnace will not run until the fan is turning. It's common for the relay to go bad but I've only had to replace on thermal fuse in the last 12 years.

I have a venstar t1700 thermostat which required a 24v transformer, hooked the two wire to R and C. Thermostats lights up and functioning. I have two wires running to propane heater a red wire and whi


R and C are the power terminals to the thermostat allowing it to run on 24 volts and not under battery power alone. Assuming that you used the R and C terminals from the propane heater to power the stat and NOT an external transformer, the W terminal on the thermostat then is connected to the W terminal on the propane heater. W energizes the heating control circuit when the thermostat calls for heat. The remaining portion of the control circuit should be prewired from the factory internal of the heater. If you do NOT have these terminals, more information is required for us to help you.

Cadet baseboard heater


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

Replace three wire thermostat with four wire thermostat


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.
