Add line thermostat to fahrenheat space heater

I have a 5000w space heater from Fahrenheat.  The unit comes with a thermostat attached to the model but it only reads hot to cold (not a number).  The unit will also be mounted up on the ceiling where I wont be able to reach it so I would like to add a line voltage thermostat.  The thermostat I purchased is rated for this heater.  My question is do I leave the  simple thermostat attached in the unit or should I disconnect it?  In this case I would run the supply line to the thermostat and then from the thermostat to the heater.  Thanks.

I'm replacing a non-hydronic electric baseboard heating unit with a Fahrenheat hydronic one. My old unit was 240v using 2 conductors plus bare ground wire. The fahrenheat (PLF series) unit's instructions...


Hello. The red and the black are the hot wires. Therefore, connect one of your conductors to the red and the other conductor to the black. Use wirenuts. The bare ground wire should be solidly attached to the new unit's green wire using a wire nut.

How to wire unit baseboard heater to the power to thermoster


That is a portable unit and should not be hard-wired and controlled by a wall-mounted thermostat. The unit may never cut off that way.

It is considered a "space heater" not an area heater.

Electric space heater contactor won't stay latched


Jumpered the bimetal thermostat and everything worked smoothly. Tried to clean contacts in thermostat with no luck, so ordered a replacement. At least it was cheaper than the contactor.

Electric baseboard heater


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.

Can someone please tell me what is the lowest temperature setting a Fahrenheat 3000 Watt Large Room Fan-Forced Wall Heater Model FZL3004 will turn on at ?


about the only way I can figure is to let the room get very cool and adjust the thermostat to its lowest setting. now turn on the unit. monitor the heat until the stat just opens. the thermostat bimetal will be closed and will open when the bimetal expands and opens its contacts. another way is to hitch up a chart recorder to measure temperature with its output connected to the heater. [too expensive for you or the DIY to accomplish]

How do I wire up my fahrenheat F25408 baseboar heater?


Baseboard heaters are easy to hitch up. You can have a wall mounted thermostat or an integral thermostat. The diagram I have is for the integral thermostat. Follow the diagram and it should work.
