Question about Fahrenheat Electric Convector Baseboard Heater, 3'
Posted by dogmanwayne on Dec 07, 2008
I am installing a noma 1000 watt heater. Controller is a line Noma line voltage double pole thermostat, wiring 12\2, breaker double 20\20. I am not getting heat. The red\black are from the breaker to line at each thermoatate terminal, load is again black\red from each terminal. At the heater I am getting 120 volts at each wire red and black. The black is connected to the black of the heater and the red to the white at the heater by wire nuts and the copper to ground. With the thermostat on I am getting no heat... I thought it might be a defective heater and exchanged it... the same problem. Any ideas? Thanks Wayne
First, is this a 120 VAC or 240 VAC heater? 120 VAC heater will usually have one Black & one White wire and 240 VAC heater will usually have two Black wires or one Black & one Red wire. If it is a 120 VAC heater then you need to supply the white wire at the heater with a neutral (white) wire from the breaker panel. If it is a 240 VAC heater then you need to verify that you have 240 VAC at the heater from Black lead to Red lead. If you are not sure about how to do this please have an experienced electrician look at it so you don't get electrocuted and/or burn up your new heater. Hope this helps!
