Question about Honeywell HZ514 Baseboard Heater

2 Answers

Honeywell HZ514 Baseboard space heater

I have a baseboard space heater from Honeywell.
The models specks are as follows.

The UL is listed 6D17
LA is LR95812
It's 120 Volt and 60Hz, 12.5A, 1500W

There are three questions that people would like answered
1. How much power does this draw? Is there a danger for overheating or blowing fuses on a circuit in the case of a commercial building wired for commercial businesses that has refrigerators, vending machines and large cannon commercial copiers?

2. If I accidently left it on low for a few days, what are the fire risks? This model as far as I can tell does not have a timer so I have to remember to turn it off. But what if I forget on a Friday?

Thanks for your time. Please reply with your title and contact information in case there are additional questions.

Regards,
Mary Ann Kaufman

The power draw would be the same as 15 100 watt light bulbs all on at the same time! If this is on a circuit with anything else (ex; vending machine with cooler. )drawing over 7.5 amps it will trip the circuit breaker! does'nt matter if comercial or home! 120 volt receptacle would be on 20 amp breaker. And as for last question... I know there is a thermostat on front, so as long as thats set right, there should be no reason to fear a fire, if in safe location! John

How about a free replacement heater?

There has been a recall since 2002 on some Honeywell portable baseboard heaters. Check this link, or call Honeywell ASAP. The ON/OFF switch failed (with a burning plastic odor) on my HZ-514.

http://www.cpsc.gov/en/Recalls/2002/CPSC-Honeywell-Consumer-Products-Announce-Recall-of-Moveable-Baseboard-Heaters/

"Consumers should stop using these heaters immediately, unplug them, and contact HCP at (800) 290-8495 between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m. ET Monday through Sunday or log on to the company's website at www.honeywell.com to determine whether their heater is part of the recall."

I hope this is a solution for you, and you are safely warm again in the near future.http://www.cpsc.gov/en/Recalls/2002/CPSC-Honeywell-Consumer-Products-Announce-Recall-of-Moveable-Baseboard-Heaters/ not-heating-up-could-problem-some-gwybjxudtwjfkyidrgix5fxs-4-0.jpg

Honeywell HZ517 Electric Baseboard Heater not powering up


first.... did they work in the past?? if so... you may have a defective thermastat. if not, usually it is a incorrect wiring problem. wiring in two baseboard heaters to one thermastat can be tricky if you do not know what you are doing. baseboard heaters by design seldom go bad.... if wired correctly the problem could be a defective thermastat or safety limit switch.

Baseboard heater


Make sure BOTH fuses on each heater circuit test ok -- they are no doubt 220V -- hence 2 fuses

Loud humming


If this is an electric resistance heater then there is no power supply or transformer. I had a baseboard heater that would hum loudly and I found there's a wire that runs along the bottom to connect the far end of the heat element to the electrical wiring at the supply end. This wire becomes magnetized from the current flowing through it and vibrates in the channel it runs through. I was able to open this channel and squirt a bit of silicone caulk in to keep the wire from vibrating and the hum is gone.
