Welcome. My name is ***** ***** would be glad to assist.
Can you get a picture of the one end of the heater that has the incoming power and post?
Easier to review a picture and make notes as to the wiring.
Let me know and we can continue,
They must be too large, can you get the file size smaller, the site only allows a certain size file to be uploaded.
Or you can use a free share site like tinypic.com and then post the private link they provide to access your picture.
I see the pictures, hard to tell everything.
It appears to be disconnected from power?
Actually I do not see the power entering the heater from the original thermostat?
Give me some information on what I am looking at in the picture. It doesnt look factory to me.
I am looking at all 3 pictures and they are all on the left end of the heater showing the same thing.
What I need to know, is where your power is on the heater now before anything was taken apart.
The only thing that should take place here is disconnect the 2 power wires from the heater, nothing else.
That is where the new Relay will connect.
Your fourth picture is not up on the site, I see only 3.
We have to access the power wire side for the relay to connect to the heater
The other where the control knob was, you would just connect the 2 wires together that were on the control bypassing that power directly to the heater.
The relay you install connects to the power and the new thermostat will control everything through the relay.
At the power end, it would wire like the below:
Did you read the description.
Disconnect the 2 power wires that are connected to the 2 heater leads at the power end of the heater.
That leaves you with 2 loose power leads and 2 loose heater leads.
Take one of the power wires and connect to one of the heater wires along with the BLUE terminal on the relay.
Take your other power wire and connect to the BLACK terminal on the relay
Take the remaining heater wire wire and connect to the RED terminal on the relay.
Dont know of any other way to simplify the wiring.
