If your baseboard goes down to the subfloor then I would be very surprised that the installer took the time to cut into it so that hardwood would go under it. If the contractor has a specialty tool for this which makes the endeavor take seconds instead of using an oscillating multi-tool then that would be cool. Anyways, the baseboard was probably cut ...

When you see 2 wires connected to supply/LINE side, it simply means that one of them is supply from the panel, and the other is supply going onward to somewhere else. They are both supply, and it doesn't matter which is which. You need to connect them both to supply/LINE, or to be more precise, connect them to each other, and then, connect a pigtail to your ...

If you only need it to last "a year or so", use Playdough, chewing gum, Bondoâ„¢, duct tape, cement, lime or whatever the heck you want. If it falls out in 6 months, fill it again - this only has to last a year or so, right? If you want to do it right, then use a quality wood filler.

Baseboard heaters are typically pretty cheap for a unit. A 1000W 48" is less than $50 - is it really worth cleaning and trying to find a new cover for something at that cost?

Supply == Line == T1, T2 old stat (if you typed correctly), L1, L2 New stat you show a picture of. Load == Load == L1, L2 old stat (if you typed correctly), T1, T2 New stat If there's nothing else on this circuit, line is the single wire, load is the two wires, one to each heater. If there are other things on the circuit, could be different - line could be ...
