Question about Fahrenheat Electric Convector Baseboard Heater, 240 Volt

1 Answer

My electric baseboard heater is too hot! It is 95 degrees in my bathroom and it is set on low! It is too hot to touch the top of the heater. Is it a possible fire hazard? I tried to turn it below low just before off and it is still way to hot to touch. I am a fire fighter so this really concerns me. Please can someone help? Thanks :)

Sounds like you have a bad thermastat or it is wired incorrectly but you should turn it off

I have a baseboard heater in my apartment (small dining area) that has a dial that I can control the heat..the knob has #1-10...what is a good number to set it to and do I keep it on all the time. Thanks...


Hi!
The number you keep it on is whatever temperature that is comfortable to you. The settings on the dial are graduated from #1(lowest-coolest) to #10(warmest). If you want to keep the room temperature somewhat even you need to play around with the settings( one number at a time) until you find what is comfortable to you. Hope I was of help to you.

Fahrenheat electric baseboard heaters are not safe for children


A few companies sell child-proof covers that prevent little fingers and small objects from getting into the radiators. Try searching Child-safe baseboard heater covers in a google search or PexSupply.com.... we use them in daycare centers.

How far off the floor do i install hot water baseboard heaters


When you install the baseboard heater make sure the bottom part which is the all thing must sit over the floor and touch the tiles or carpet and use 2 or 3 wood screw against the wall. That is it and do not put any kind of paper or cotton or material things above the cover. Beside that you are ok and it is not like an electric wall heater.

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.

Electric Hydronic Baseboard Heater Under Electrical Recepticle


Hello,
I believe you interpretation of the code is a bit skewed in that the fundamental concern is to not route power cords over a heat source which might cause the insulation on that wire to exceed its rated operating temp and fail. The heaters themselves have shrowds over them so there are no exposed surfaces hot enough to melt wire insulation and when you think about it ..2000 watts disipated over a long baseboard section is not that hot. If I were you, I would go ahead and install them and not worry about the warning.. The warning also removes any liability from the heater manufacturer in the event something happens.. Common sense would dictate that you wouldn't intentionally drape power cords all over the heaters... Just use common sense and not worry about it..
Regards,
Rick

Fahrenheat baseboard heater knobs


go to a radio shack to find replacement knobs. get something called a "bar knob." this has a set screw which holds the knob on the thermo shaft. use a marker and print lo med high and off on the unit or use a brother p touch label maker.
