Question about Fahrenheat Electric Convector Baseboard Heater, 3'

1 Answer

Heater is not heating up.

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

    I have a Fahrenheit fzl4004b wall heater. It has been in storage for several years, but prior to that had little use. I just re-installed it, and it will not turn on. I am getting 120v on red and black, but when turned on, nothing happens, no heat, no fan! Any suggestions

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!

There is a thermal disc inside the heater that will tell the heater if it is getting too hot to shut down. When the disc cools off then the heater will start up again. After a wile the disc gets weak or it gets stuck open not allowing the heater to turn on. You will need to replace the disc or purchase a new heater as parts for those are not easy to find.

good luck

I have installed a Dimplex 1500watt heater. I used a double 15amp breaker and 14/2 wire (I know should've used 12 guage but changed plans post construction and was told 14 would be fine). There is...


A number 12 copper supply cable at the voltage is overkill for this load.

Ohm's Law states: Watts = Volts x Amps. To find Amps: Amps = Watts / Volts. This is 1500W / 240V = 6.25 Amps. Since the max continuous load for a 14 copper is 12 Amps, this size wire is the correct size.

Check to make sure the heater is in fact a 240 volt type, as if it is a 120 volt type, you are likely instantly burning out the heating element. If it is indeed a 120 volt heater, you will need to connect to a single pole 15 amp breaker and place the other wire that was on the breaker to neutral to provide the correct voltage. The load will still be 1500W, but at half the voltage, the current will double to 12.5 amps, and may cause the circuit breaker to trip after a while.

I hope this helps & good luck.

Using the equation I = P/E where "I" is Amps, "P" is Watts, and "E" is voltage, we find that your 5000w circuit will have an Amperage of 20.83. A 22 amp tstat will work, it will just leave you no room for surges. I would suggest splitting the baseboard and using 2 thermostats. Hope this helps

How to size a room for baseboard.


HERE YOU GO CALCULATE THE HEAT @ 10 WATTS PER SQUARE FOOT , TAKE THE LENGTH X WIDTH X 10 AND THIS WILL TELL YOU THE AMOUNT OF WATTAGE YOU NEED . MOST ALL BASEBOARD HEATERS ARE RATED @ 250 WATTS PER LEN FT AS TO SAY A EX. A 4FT HEATER IS 1000 WATTS , MOST OF THE THERMOSTATS ARE RATED @ 20 AMPS AS IS THE 12-2-WG WIRE TO RUN TO HEATERS AND THERMOSTAT DIVIDE THE TOTAL WATTAGE BY THE LINE VOLTAGE USUALLY 240VOLT IN US .AND THIS WILL TELL YOU THE CURRENT DRAW ----WHICH CANNOT EXCEED 20 AMPS ON 12-3-WG AND THAT IS THE LIMIT OF THE THERMOSTAT AS WELL THESE STATES APPLY 99% OF THE TIME I DO REALIZE THERE ARE EX BUT HAVE USED THESE FORMULAS FOR 35 YEARS OF DOING MY WORK AND THEY DO FINE
