Hello, click here please, see page 2 tell me if that wire configuration matches what you have or not,

We can go from there without any time limits.

What we need to do is sort out which two wires are incoming Line 1 and Line 2 power and which two wires run to the heater, if you can locate the house electrical panel breaker that turns off power to the baseboard, we can determine which two are hot when the thermostat is OFF... it will be those two that are Line 1 and line 2.... your existing thermostat will also be marked Line 1 and Line 2... and terminal 1 and Terminal 2.

.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5 star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today. If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know.
