Question about Fahrenheat FUH5-4 Heater

Open Question

Fahrenheat FUH 5-4B thermostat turns off at 40 degrees.

I have had this wall mounted unit in my garage for 7 years and it has worked well. This winter, the heater is shutting off at 40 degrees. Should I replace the thermostat?

the reset is probably an inline circuit breaker. if you can get hold of am amprobe clamp around ammeter, check the current when the unit is running at full power. the reading you get check against the current rating of the inline breaker. your fan motor bearings may be dry increasing the current draw of the unit and tripping the breaker. try oiling the fan bearings with a light oil NOT WD-40.

Sounds like a bad temperature control switch. If it looks like it can be replaced, check with Johnstone or Grainger Supply company to match it up. Google it for their websites.

1st you will belucky if you actually have 240 v, most
homes are usually 220v. In youyr case you need to start at the breaker panel.

This is an example:
You have a Double Pole Single Throw breaker. Black
Wire is hot and goes into one side of breaker,if you havea red wire that goes into the other have of the
breaker.

The white wire ties in the nuetral bar and the bare wire into the ground bus bar. At the unit you hook up the red and the black wire which will supply the 240
Volts, you could tie the white and the ground wires together into the grounding terminal

Could be either. But, I suspect that wiring is getting hot enough to trip the breaker. Check all of your wiring to see if there is a hot spot or insulation melted.

Fahrenheat fuh 54 b does not run long enough to get garage warm


have you checked what the operating amps are vs. the amps provided by the outlet. Sounds like you are trying to pull to much load and the machine probably has a saftey to where it shuts down bofore it buns itself up. Hope this helps. You have to be real careful about overloading circuts.

How do I wire up my fahrenheat F25408 baseboar heater?


Baseboard heaters are easy to hitch up. You can have a wall mounted thermostat or an integral thermostat. The diagram I have is for the integral thermostat. Follow the diagram and it should work.
