Loose power when turing it on

We have two tpi baseboard heaters, and when we turn the theromstat on we loose one of the 120v so the heater doesn't work. Do we need a new theromstat?

Sounds like it is wired incorrectly at the baseboard heater. BUT if it worked correctly before this, then you may have a bad thermastat. Wiring in two baseboards into one thermastat is a bit tricky, each time I do it I have to think it thru before hand to get it right. IF it has never worked right, again you probably have it wired in wrong at the baseboard.

I cannot get my TPI Corp baseboard heater to turn off. It kicks on even when it is not that cool in the room.


If the unit kicks on at too high a temperature, then it is probably the thermostat. If it will not turn off then it is probably the switch that is bad. Since you gave both indications, you could have two components bad. NOTE: Normally calling a technician to repair this item is more expensive than replacing it with a new one yourself.

I have base board heaters in each room and each with a thermostat and hooked to a controller. The controllers activate the heat in the base board heaters. I believe this is how it works. When you activate the thermostat, it sends a message to the controller that sends a message to the base board for heat.
The controllers are Singers. Prbkem 2:. When I turn down the thermostat (to off), I still get heat in the base board heaters. WHY.
I was going to get rid off the controllers and thermostats and buy new base board heaters at Home Depot. The thermostats are on the base board heaters. Will this work.

Does your baseboard heater have tstat. If so. Turn off power and disconnect the two wires going to heater take a ohmeter and check to see if you have any resistance on your heater. Also remove wires from tstat and check across terminals to see if you have restistance should be 0. If the heaters are good should read restance across them. If no resistance is found bad heater.

Disconnect baseboard heater


After confirming that the heater circuit is de-energized, simply go to whatever heater that you want to disconnect, open the junction box, remove the heater wires and cap them off. Twist the remaining circuit wires together, wire nut, replace the juction box cover and on to the next one. There are ways to install a thermostat at each heater too.

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.
