I guess I don't have enough know-how to figure this one out on my own.

I'm trying to replace the old turn-dial thermostat for our old baseboard heaters. I bought a Lux model with only a line (black) and load (red) wire. The old thermostat was wired as a pass-through with a set (black and white) coming in, and a set (black and white) running out. Here is a pic of the old wiring:

... and here is a pic of the new thermostat:

How can I go about making this work and keeping the pass-through wiring?

Thanks for the help!!

You're trying to replace a double-pole thermostat with a single-pole variety.

The best solution is to exchange the Lux thermostat. You probably have model LV1 when LV2 would be more suitable.

Remember, with 240V circuits, it's wise to break both HOT wires.

Ah yes... model numbers mean everything, don't they! Thanks! I will exchange it for the correct model.
