Tile floor heater

Trying to install the thermostat for my electric floor tile heater but I can't seem to get the thermostat to power on. When I wire the thermostat into other circuits, it works fine so I know the thermo is functional. The circuit I'm trying to wire into has two hots (red & black), neutral, and ground. I'm not getting any power on the black wire so I just put a nut on it and taped it up b/c I only need one hot wire for the thermo. I tested hot-neutral, hot-ground, and neutral-ground and everything seems to work fine according to my multimeter. Anybody have a clue what I'm doing wrong? Thanks

Is this a 220 volt circuit? Have you identified the wires in the box that come from the heat?

120V. Yeah I ID'd the wires from the heating elements. They are supposed to tie in to the back of the thermostat once I can get it to power on. The back of the thermostat has 1 HOT 1 NEUTRAL that go in and 1 HOT 1 NEUTRAL that come out and tie into the heating element wires.

Are you getting 120 between the Red and neutral? Are the Black and Red in the same cable moving into the box?

Do you also have a remote thermostat sensor that is located in the floor and connects to the thermostat with two wires ?
