Question about Electric TPI CORP TBS BASEBOARD HEATER THERMOSTAT
My di Longhi oil-filled electric radiator seems to work reasonably well, but two things concern me. When the radiator reaches a certain temperature and automatically shuts off, you can see electric sparks through the vent holes on the side. (We are very careful not to have anything on or near the radiator.) Also, the circuit breaker went off recently, while the radiator was on.
Is the unit defective?
Should I suspect problems with the wiring in the wall?
I look forward to your response.
I would suspect the unit is at fault. the sparks from the inside of the unit indicate a short from hot wire to ground (unit itself). this is verified by the tripping of the circuit breaker. I would not use the unit anymore till the short is clean.
this is potential fire hazard.
