What size is the unit you replaced? A tripped braker means an overload. While an overload can mean an incorrect hookup, it can also mean that you are drawing too much current through the circuit.

What are the power requirements for this unit and for the unit it replaced? What size is the circuit (both wire size and circuit breaker size).

Did you connect the wires exactly the same as the wires for the previous unit?

Please submit more detailed info. on the thermosat.

If you have a line-voltage thermostat with 4 leads, it's basicaly a 2-pole (2 make/break contacts) switch activated by the temperature. You must indentify the 2 leads that connect to each of the 2 poles.

One lead SHOULD be indentified as "L1" and another as "L2"-- these are the "Line"-connection leads . One switching-pole would be L1-to-H1 (make/break) and the other S-P would be L2-to-H2 ( make/break).

Good Luck & Enjoy the Experience!!!!!!!!!!!!!
