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.

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.

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

My PLF504 detonated this morning (11-25-2010). It worked fine for two years then BANG. Room was lit by flame coming from center (left to right) of unit. I wrote Marley asking them to honor the 10 year heater element warranty. Also, no burnt wires at thermostat connection, no dust bunnies on the fins. Source of fire was the fluid filled encapsulated heater core. Thank God, circuit breaker tripped and wall was tiled.

Electric baseboard heater


this is a tough call but with 2000 watts in each room there should be more than enough heat .the rooms should maintain a average temp of 73 to 78 degrees temp without weatherazation and that is of course there is no drafts coming from any windows or near a front or back door that opens and closes alot . Basiclly you have it covered but definatley get the house winterize/insulated real good.I would keep 1 or 2 space heaters on hand just incase the person in house feels there cold just to cover yourself ,usually it the female complaining its cold if its not warm enough but there have been some males that need that temp to be 80 degrees all the time.good luck but im sure it will be ok!!

I have one thermostat for 4 electric baseboard heaters all in seperate rooms, i want to disconnect one of them how do I do it?


You have to shut the power off to all your baseboards, make absolutely sure that the power is off !!!!! once you are sure, then its a matter of unscrewing the unit from the wall, then opening up the panel, uncouple the wires inside the unit that supply the power, wire nut the wires then tape with electrical tape, if at all possible remove the power leads from the breaker panel that feeds that particular baseboard, if not, then make extra sure you have the power leads secure and taped off as so they will not touch together or anything else, I would strongly recommend that you hire a certified electrician to do this !! as this type of home repair is very dangerous and deadly. hope that was helpful

Electric baseboard heat not getting hot


Is your fuse box and main power source large enough to handle the full load if all are turned on at the same time? Are you uses two pole breakers? you might only be feeding with 110 volt. This would prevent them from getting very hot.

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
