Hi I am trying to connect a dimplex baseboard heater. it's doesn't have clear instructions

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

I am wondering black/white wire from wall connects to l1 or l2

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes I am replacing a baseboard heater

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

The new heater i am installing is LPC series which have a remote control unit called connecx

it's the manual.
I have one more question. If I am removing a heater, what should I do with the cable coming out of wall. I want to keep it incase I need the heater later

ok, for your heater, do you see a black and blue that were connected together from the factory?

I am wondering about black/white wires from wall

Getting to that. Connect the black from the house wiring to the blue and black that were already connected inside the heater wiring area. Connect the white from the house wiring to the single black wire in the heater wiring area

Sounds good. And leave everything else as is ?

Yes, there's a yellow and black connected that you aren't supposed to touch

Make sure you connect the ground wire to the heater grounding connection
