Anyone have any information on the old style in the floor heating systems?
Trying to find out how to power and wire up the Basato switch. Any help appreciated..

It's often difficult or impossible to get parts (except for the "Cozy" brand, which is still made), Some of the older types run *very* hot, and their floor grates can be hazardous, especially to small children. Some used asbestos ("transite") vent pipes. Many are old enough so that their heat exchangers should be carefully checked for cracks before they are returned to service.

Old style floor heater

Thanks Michael,
This system has been upgraded in the last 10yrs. All the vent piping has been replace and what I am looking to find out is the wiring configuration of the Standing Pilot Gas Valve, long story short, someone may have removed the 24volt transformer, but I cant be sure without a simple wiring diagram. If you can help with this, I would greatly appreciate it..
From what I can see, the overtemp on the mercury switch is connected and I bypassed it to rule this out, and the thermostat is also connected on the terminal block, now if and where the voltage is connected, I do not know and it is not marked. Thanks for the help..

Post photos of each component and whatever wiring diagram you can make up from observation.

With a limited number of components and very few terminals per component, there are very few ways these all can be wired in order to have a functioning system.
With this info it should be easy to fill in the missing connections or components.

Troubleshooting bad components in a correctly wired system is another issue.
