The problem: yesterday the baseboard heaters never turn off. Though it could be a short somewhere else in the system, I’m going to start with the assumption it’s this old thermostat.
When I removed the thermostat from the wall, these were the only 2 wires actually connected. The 3rd one was just floating. 😮
Could any of you please suggest a replacement thermostat, something that is basic, could handle these 2 (3?) wires and is programmable?
I’ve looked at this one, for example, but it assume about 6 wires to connect. I’ve got 2: Honeywell
