    When cleaning portable Rival Titan portable space heater accidentally disconnected wires to thermostat and on/off switch. Need instructions to reconnect wires.

    Neutral power line (the wide blade) to heater element.
    Hot power line(slim blade) to the switch. Switch to thermostat. Thermostat to other end of heater element.

    First there is the cord power that has been splits into two wires with female connectors - then one of these wires has been stripped from the black casing to reveal a green wire that has been attached to the frame; the other half is still in its casing with its female connected that looks like it slides over a flat connection.

    The there are 2 wires coming from the left and right side of heating coils with a male flat connected. The left side wire is still connected to the Hi/Lo switch on the right but the right wire is not connected to anything and I don't see anywhere for it to plug in to. There is a male connected available on this switch to the left of where the left wire is connected to the switch. When I opened the unit these right wire wasn't connected to anything.

    Now for the thermostat, it does have on male post available
