I have a pair of electromod basement heater. The label on each of them show them show 750/1000W. Power supply to this is 240V

I am trying to replace the old manual thermostat with a progrmabale one. I bought Aube TH106 and installed it. It turns on fine and set the target temperature around 6 degrees more than the current temperature.

However the thermostatheater is not turning on. The thermostat is supposed to work with minimum 2Amp.

Now thinking baseboard heater may not be working, I put the old thermostat back and the heater runs fine. With the new thermostat I also checked if power is coming to the heater with a voltage tester and it’s positive. I don’t have a multimeter right now with me

What could be wrong here? Any idea ?
