Question about Fahrenheat Electric Hydronic Baseboard Heater, 240 Volt

1 Answer

Our electro-hydronic boiler system stopped sending water to the outer registers. At least, the registers are all cold, except one. It was as if the lines were blocked--the valves that regulate the water were all on the OFF positions. The tank built up enough pressure / heat that it blew over in the overflow pipe, which was scary, but it did its job and kept it from exploding. We don't know what to think. My wife believes that we have a manuel for the heater, and she is retrieving it upstairs.

Sounds like you have a hot water boiler if it is firing which it must be if it activated the relief valve i would suspect the circulator is not working

Why does the pressure rise to over 3bar when the central heating is in operation ?


3 Bar = 43.5 PSI When you heat water it always expands increasing pressure.
In a closed vessel volume can increase by 2-3%. Either expansion tanks allow for this and PSI is maintain or without an expansion outlet the PSI will increase in proportion to heat supplied.
Is this a low temp hydronic boiler operating at or <140F, a hi temp hydronic boiler @ >180F or steam boiler?

I have a faema x1 grandaitalia machine , the water coming out of the boiler is only getting to 33 deg can you send me or a diagram of hot water system thanks or tell me what to fix problem


Ope you mean from hot water spout if so several problems exsist as this machine has a cold mix system to bring the roughly 120c water from boiler down to roughly 94c to use for americano. check spout and descale hot water nozzle or see if any black/brown particals in defuser(fine mesh in spout)as boiler pressure is roughly 1.3/1.4bar and mains water is roughly 2/4bar thus cold water will win if black brown particals in mesh poosible boiler contamination causing restriction to which once again cold water will win. question did any one take any pipes apart about 5 months ago????? as there are restrictors within the system.

You should be ok. Most of the time the boiler are charged to about 10psi and dont have feed valve. You would only feed if you have a slight leak in system. Rus

How to re pressurisecentral heating system


Hi tiger650,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: The Alpha SY24 boiler has stopped working. The pressure gauge has dropped, you need to know how to re pressurise the system once the radiators have been bled

Every hydronic heating system is required to have a presure regulator. Most guys call it a feeder valve. Every one I've installed or worked on had one. It's job is to keep the water pressure constant by adding water when you release some air without over filling the system. Sounds like it's not working. Some types can be serviced, others cannont so you may have to replace it. If you're not sure what to do it might be prudent to check the Repair Directory for a repairman.

My global hydronics outside wood boiler 5 years old has a interior leak who can fix it please, thank you.


Global Hydronics products have a notorious reputation for leaks. Their warranty isn't worth the paper it is written on. The leaks are NOT repairable by a local person and then the homeowner is faced with the daunting task of having the entire boiler shipped to Canada for repair. And if you do invest the hundreds of dollars to ship, they may just tell you that they won't fix it anyway and advise you to buy a new one.

After a quick search, it's obvious that their products have a poor reputation. Please people, register your problems with the Canadian Better Business Bureau. http://www.ccbbb.ca/ It's unbelievable that they have no official complaints against them when clearly, so many people have had major problems. This company needs to be stopped.

Hydronic Boiler relief valve problem?


Check the pressure guage. Typically the pressure in a water boiler should not be more than 20 psi. If you are approaching 30, the relief valve is doing it's job. I would replace or adjust the automatic water feed if the pressure is high. Always replace the boiler relief valve. Tap on the expansion tank, it should sound hollow. Replace it if it is full of water. If you have one of the old expansion tank that has no bladder in it, drain it.

Need wiring help with Fahrenheat PLF754 240V baseboard heater with Fahrenheat PT2DS double-pole thermostat Open kimono - I know enough about electrical wiring to be dangerous. I have a Fahrenheat PLF754 240V baseboard heater and a Fahrenheat PT2DS (also known as Marley T2) double-pole integrated thermostat that and the heater isn&#39;t working. My power supply is a single cable with white, black, and red wires. I traced the supply line back to the circuit panel and found that the red and black wires terminate on a DP-40A breaker. The white wire is grounded. The heater has 2 red wires exiting a center tube at the end of the heater where the thermostat goes and 2 black wires exiting a small cut-out near the top of the same end. There&#39;s also a green ground wire from the heater. The thermostat has 2 red wires on the left top and bottom, 2 black wires on the right top and bottom, and a green ground wire. An electrician friend of mine (since left town) installed the wiring, heater, and thermostat for me. It worked fine for about 1 year and then stopped working. I&#39;m trying to troubleshoot the problem but don&#39;t have any documentation on how this thing should be wired or how I might isolate the problem to the thermostat, heater, or both. I did verify that the power supply is good. Everything is currently wired as follows: Black power supply to black thermostat (top) Red power supply to black thermostat (bottom) One black heater to red thermostat (top) Other black heater to one red heater Other red heater to red thermostat (bottom) Green heater to green thermostat White power supply not connected - just wire-nutted Can anyone confirm this is the correct wiring for this configuration and, if not, what it should be? If this is correct, how best to isolate the problem? Thanks!
