Question about Fahrenheat LFP6152 Halogen Baseboard Heater
I recently changed the 100 amp breaker for the furnace because it what making a lot of noise and was very hot, and it made the main breaker 200 amp went off one morning last week. I changed the 100 amp breaker yesterday, put the furnace on and this morning the upper part of the main box was hot and ther was a smell coming fromm the box. I put the furnace back on oil, but during the day the lights were blinking a bit and the panel is still hot. Should i replace the main breaker 200 amp.
This is a dangerous situation! There is a short in the furnace. It is NOT a breaker problem! You need to check the current draw in the furnace circuit, This requires an Amprobe meter. If you don't have one, contact a technician at once! You have a fire hazard!
