Hi and welcome to FixYa,

The short answer is yes. A few other ideas you may want to consider:

  • current capacity of the contacts of the timer switch (relay);
  • terminals should be screw type, not soldered nor plug-in;
  • preferably switch the Line 1 (the hot wire);
  • for safety reasons, separate fuses for the timer circuitry as well as the load (heater).
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Dayton electric heater model 3UF94 can you rewire from 3phase 240v to singel phase 240v


You can wire any heater with elements to single phase because all heaters are single phase. It will require a larger feed because your amp draw is going to go up doing away with the third leg. You split the heaters up from 3 phase to 2 legs amp draw is going to go up 30 percent or so.

Dimplex LC Series causing wall to get very hot


Talked to my electrical supplier and he told me to avoid them. They are the same wattage in a smaller package, thus creating more heat in a smaller area rather than spreading it out to a larger baseboard. He said he doesn't know how they passed fed. Regulations. I am on the fence if I should get them.

I have just had a Williams 33,000 wall furnace installed to replace a pre-existing furnace. However, after installation, the Bellflower inspector issued a "correction notice" which the installer...


The "drip leg" is generally placed near the appliance, but that doesn't mean that it can't be placed in a more convenient location. However it must be dedicated only to that heating appliance.

How to light a pilot on an electric ignition heater i have followed all the directions on the heater and it still won't light


most elecrronic ignition gas heaters are remote control so you should have a remote or a wall switch some where and this means you shouldn't really have to touch any of controls inside heater and the manual starting of these fires is for service technician i suggest making sure that gas supply line you have to heater, check stop valve is on to let gas through. You then need to make sure the heater's isolater switch is on if has one so it gets 240v for electronic ignitor unless it is battery powered which obviously you need to change batteries in and if all fails from there i would call service technician, unless you are one yourself as above stated is all you should do if you are not a tech. Also your pilot may be faulty or may have had an eight legged intrusion into pilot stem itself it does happen have found spiders in pilots but its usually the web that causes problem so you should definatly call service agent.

Hi,
Here's what I think but you will have to check it out...
The fan motor in the 39 heater is a 120V fan there fore it cannot be hooked to the 240 which potentially could have the high (wild) leg as one of the fan legs...
The 240V 36 unit probably has a 240v fan motor....
Now if you were to make sure that the leg that fed the motor was a 120V to ground leg then you will be okay...
Hope you understand where I was going with this...

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.

Wiring my 240 V wall mount heater


Your question is kind of vague, but the 240v goes to the heating element, if the heater has a fan, it may be a 110v, so the white is common and should be wired as such. The heater should have a wiring diagram on 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'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'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'm trying to troubleshoot the problem but don'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!
