T-Stat wiring problem

I installed a new wall heater in my house and attached the existing T-Stat wires to it and it got fried? The anticipator wire burned? It is a 24 volt system and the new wall heater calls for a 750 Millivolt system, does any one know what I have to insatll to get this to work? Thanks.........al

Not sure what a "wall heater" is ---- what is the heat-source? oil, gas, electric ?---

What area is being heated? One room, the entire house? is there an existing heating system? Is this a seperate "heating zone"?

You will need to provide make, model #, any installation insructions you have.

If the old thermostat has a 24 volt source, which would have been part of the heating system, and you connected a new millivolt gas heater to it, the 24 volts would have fried the gas valve for sure. ( an expensive oops)

We really need more details of what the old heater was, where the 24 volts came from , and what the new heater is.
