    Do you use 12/2 or 12/3 for a 240V heater?

If the heater is 120 volt or 240 volt its really pretty easy. at either end is a cover. remove the cover and you'll see a wirenut or maybe just two wires. one side has an integral thermostat. connect your supply to the two wires on the thermostat. connect the other end in your breaker box with the appropriate sized circuit breaker. wire size feeding it will depend on its current draw. how many watts is the heater? 1500 watts will draw 6.25 amps at 240 volts so you can use 14 ga wire. 2000 watts will draw 8.3 at 240 volts - so 14 ga is still ok. 2500 watts at 240 draws 10.41 amps. 3000 watts draws 12.5 amps at this stage I'd use 12 gauge on a 20 amp breaker.

Sounds like possibly you haven't removed all packing material. All machines will produce a strange odor upon start up but should go away rather quickly. Be sure to Read the manual in it's entirety

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.
