Question about Fahrenheat Electric Convector Baseboard Heater, 240 Volt

1 Answer

When my heater kicks in after a few minutes there is a pop.

I installed Fahrenheat model F2546 72" baseboard heaters about 4 years ago. There are two heaters on opposite walls running off of the same thermostat, they are on 220 20 amp double pole breaker. One of the heaters will make a fairly loud pop after it is running a few minutes. I removed both wire plates and found no burn marks. As a matter of fact everything looks like it was just wired up, no signs of overheat or arks at all. Was just wondering if this is something to really be concerned about or if anyone has a fix.

The sound that you are hearing may be from the metal expanding when it gets hot.

My PLF504 detonated this morning (11-25-2010). It worked fine for two years then BANG. Room was lit by flame coming from center (left to right) of unit. I wrote Marley asking them to honor the 10 year heater element warranty. Also, no burnt wires at thermostat connection, no dust bunnies on the fins. Source of fire was the fluid filled encapsulated heater core. Thank God, circuit breaker tripped and wall was tiled.

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.
