if the heater is 120 volt or 240 volt its really pretty easy. at either end is a cover. remove the cover and you'll see a wirenut or maybe just two wires. one side has an integral thermostat. connect your supply to the two wires on the thermostat. connect the other end in your breaker box with the appropriate sized circuit breaker. wire size feeding it will depend on its current draw. how many watts is the heater? 1500 watts will draw 6.25 amps at 240 volts so you can use 14 ga wire. 2000 watts will draw 8.3 at 240 volts - so 14 ga is still ok. 2500 watts at 240 draws 10.41 amps. 3000 watts draws 12.5 amps at this stage I'd use 12 gauge on a 20 amp breaker.

You need a meter, it will be hard without this! If you have 220v in the wall, then think of it like this; each wire is 120v. Test to each other, you get 220v. The thermostat is a double pole, you said. So think of it like this, its an adjustable temperature controlled switch that lets electricity through at the temp. you set it at. If you have 120v from one wire connected to one end of the element, and the other 120v connected to the other end of the element, then it will work. DO NOT CONNECT THE 120V TOGETHER. IT MUST GO THROUGH THE ELEMENT FIRST. The thermostat should be between the power from the wall and the element, to control the temperature.

go to a radio shack to find replacement knobs. get something called a "bar knob." this has a set screw which holds the knob on the thermo shaft. use a marker and print lo med high and off on the unit or use a brother p touch label maker.

SOURCE: Fahrenheat electric baseboard heaters are not safe for children

A few companies sell child-proof covers that prevent little fingers and small objects from getting into the radiators. Try searching Child-safe baseboard heater covers in a google search or PexSupply.com.... we use them in daycare centers.

I need to know if a mercury thermostat is bad will it allow the ac to come on but not the heater


need to know what thermostat you are referring to
the coolant thermostat has no connection to the ac system
if it is the ac thermostat the it maintains the cabin temperature by activating the ac compressor as required
if you are referring to climate control then that controls the heater flow to keep the ac temperature at a set temperature with the ac compressor operating all the time
so as an answer to you question , check the climate control module

My oil furnance is running but when it reches temperature it shuts off and will not come back on until we bleed the lines


You have a small leak on the suction side of the pump between the tank and the pump. when this happens the pump looses prime each time the furnace shuts down and when the furnace tries to fire up again the saftey device trips before the oil gets to the burner.

How do I fix my electric heater


  • sounds like the sensor or bulb that tells it to start the blower is defective/ im not familiar with your unit but this seems the most logical answer most furnace will not turn the blower on right away usually 90 seconds after the ignition but will also run longer to exhume any dangerous carbon monoxide. Electricic heaters are different. What type of unit do you have

Propane cylinder leaks


flick the little point as it may not be seating correctly. IF it still leaks attach the torch again and take it to a gas fitter and have it fixed . Remember that with gas what is in that little bottle can destroy you and your car if it is allowed to escape and ignite.
