Hi all,

I am replacing an old baseboard heater by a new one.

They are the same: wiring layout, wattage, etc...

The only difference is that the old baseboard heater has the Power wire coming from the left side, where the new one has it on the right side. (and of course, the wire is not long enough to connect it to the other side)

Is there a way of connecting this? I tried inverting the inside but it's not possible.

Thanks so much in advance

Pictures show old baseboard wiring. New one is exactly the same but on opposite sides.

Seldom do electric baseboard myself. But the ones I did, you could wire on either side.

Even on the ones that don't give much space on one side, you can still have your wires enter on that side, merret them together and extend the wires to the other side where you have more room for Controls. (if it's even necessary) They usually provide a chase running on the back plate.

Cheers!
