Loud kickspace heater

I just had a TPI-TSH20J, 240v, 2000w kickspace heater installed and it is very loud. Would a comparable Qmark heater be quiter and worth the switch? Thank you, Michael

SOURCE: Noisy kickspace heater

it probably is a sealed motor but if you have access to it you may be able to oil it with a very thin oil - like 3 in one oil. the bearings are undoubtedly oil-lite which is a porous bronze bearing pressed into the end bells of the motor. for fractional horsepower motors I'd go to grainger dot com to see if a replacement can be found.

Hey. I’m about to purchase the PLF2004 240v Hydronic Baseboard Heater 2000w. My question is, do i need to pull a neutral?

240v will be 2 "hot / 120" wires and a ground. Refer to the factory specifications for amp draw and be sure you run the right size to handle the load and use a breaker properly sized as well.

My Qmark electic heater keep tripping the breaker

You will need to provide additional diagnostic information. Most likely the breaker is defective. Warning: potential for injury is HIGH working on power electrical! Do not attempt if you do not have experience and training. Proper personal protective equipment and methods should be used. The running amps needs to be measured when the heater is turned on. Find the rating on the breaker and calculate 80% of this rating. The heater current should be less than this value. If the breaker is tripping when less than 80% is measured it is most likely defective. Measure all power legs on the heater. Also check the nameplate info on the heater Volts, Amps. Compare these values to the actual.

Can I wire two heaters on one source? I have model RDH2010 (1000W/2000W)which is 240v. I am using 220 wiring,

One, double pole, 20 amp breaker feeding the two heaters will be okay IF you have #12 AWG wire and NO other loads on the circuit. 4000 watts will pull 16.6 amps, that's max for a 20 amp circuit.

Electric Hydronic Baseboard Heater Under Electrical Recepticle

I believe you interpretation of the code is a bit skewed in that the fundamental concern is to not route power cords over a heat source which might cause the insulation on that wire to exceed its rated operating temp and fail. The heaters themselves have shrowds over them so there are no exposed surfaces hot enough to melt wire insulation and when you think about it ..2000 watts disipated over a long baseboard section is not that hot. If I were you, I would go ahead and install them and not worry about the warning.. The warning also removes any liability from the heater manufacturer in the event something happens.. Common sense would dictate that you wouldn't intentionally drape power cords all over the heaters... Just use common sense and not worry about it..
