Baseboard heater wiring


Have two baseboard heaters; one each in separate bedrooms; heater #1 stays on (low) all the time; went to replace the thermostats in both rooms and found the wiring to be as shown on the attachment; heater #2 & thermostat work; heater #1 thermostat seems to have no effect on the baseboard unit. Any suggestions how I can get the wiring put right? Much appreciated.

According to that diagram the heater#1 has constant power and heater #2 requires both stats to be on for it to work. Take the black hot wire from the black and white connection on the left and connect it to the black black connection on the right.

Round II Well ... got heater #1 / thermostat working fine (black from thermo connected to hot black), but for why I don't know the black wire coming from heater #2 / thermostat is hot -- meaning, if I connect it (and heater #1 black) to incoming hot, the breaker Does Not Like That!
Do appreciate any interpretation of status you can give.
Thanks.

You have two t-stats daisy chained, have your feed supply each T-stat, and the loads go to each baseboard heater respectfully....

It should look like this. If that doesn't work then one of your heaters is bad or you don't have it wired like this.
