SOURCE: Oil-filled SoftHeat baseboard heater makes loud gurgling noises

I have the same (I think) electric baseboard heater (no, it's not a boiler system). Actually, we have three. Recently, one started making the loud noises, then it stopped working two days ago.

I'm wondering if the original poster ever found more information, or if anyone else has an idea. There is still power to the heater -- the little light on the knob is on. There's just no heat.

Yes it is acceptable and common practice. You do not need a neutral on a 220 Volt circuit. Just wrap it with black electrical tape so anyone who gets into the wiring later will know that both are hot. This is accepted by the National Electrical Code.

Good day, I just moved into my new home on August

It sounds to me that the motors on the units in question, may need a few drops of oil on the bearings. I have seen motors in these heaters and most do have a place to oil them, they wouldn't have sealed bearings as the newer motors.Check the blower wheels also for dirt build up on the blades, as this will cause them to be out of balance and cause some noise also.
