I have the solution, finally after looking for 2 days.

First off, I couldn't quite put it all together based on what I was reading. I finally tracked down the Fahrenheat web site (www.fahrenheatpro.com). And called tech support (800) 452-4179.

To wire 2 BB units to 1 tstat.

1. Use #14 wire for 0-12 amps, #12 wire for 12.1 to 16 amps and #10 wire for 16.1 to 24 amps.

2. I have a 12/2 wire going from the tstat to BB#1 and another 12/2 wire going from BB1 to BB2.

3. Onthe left side of the heater, you will have 2 sets of black wires tied together with a nut (on right side it's 2 sets of Black/Red wires). You can use either side of the heater. For the purpose of explaining this, lets use the left side, 2 sets of black wires.

4. Undo one of the sets of black wires (it doesn't matter witch), the other set will be left alone.

5. Take the black wire coming from the tstat and tie it into one of the black wires from the heater and the black wire going to the second BB unit. So you will have those 3 wires tied together with a nut at the 1st BB unit.

6. Take the white wire coming from the tstat and tie it into the other black wire from the heater and the white wire going to the other BB heater. Again, you will have 3 wire tied together here.

7. At the second BB unit, tie the black wire coming from the 1st unit to one of the black wires in one of those 2 sets of black wires. Again, only undo 1 set of wires at the 2nd unit, leave the other one alone. Tie the white wire coming from the 1st unit to the other black wire.

8. Make sure ground wire in grounded at the tstat and at both BB units.

Hope this helps...... If I was less clear than I hoped, call tech support and they will walk you thru it....

Kevin.

240 volt wall mount baseboard heater. at either end of the heater is a service plate. it may also have an integral thermostat on one end. feed your line into the side with the thermostat. the thermostat has two wires a black and a red, with similar wire colors going to the element. wire your line on one red and one black on the same side of the "stat." the not connected to anything side of the "stat." the rest of the heater is series wired to the overload and element. (factory wired) no need to touch anything here.

I have 2 fahrenheat plf series heaters how do i wire them up to 10/2 wire. i have 2 black wires with a wire nut, 1green with a wire nut and a black and red wire with a bell crimps where does my white...


If I understand you correctly the two black wires (from heater) are caped off with a wire nut and the black and red with crimp ons are attached to something? If so attack the black wire to one of the black caped off leads from heater and the other caped off wire to the white wire from the 10/2 cable. Make sure that that 10/2 wire is attached to a 2-pole breaker not larger than 30-amps.

Hello Fixya Guru ! I am in the process of installing several Marley PLF series 2000 watt/ 240 volt electric "Hydronic" baseboard heaters. I am using 10/3 bx with a 30amp breaker. To my...


You are correct that these heaters use a two-wire 240 volt supply, and the neutral is not needed.

2000 watts = 240 volt x Amps ==> Amps = 8.3 amps

30 amps x .8 safety factor = 24 amps

24 amps / 8.3 amps = 2.9 heaters per 30 amp breaker (3 heaters should be okay)

More info, pls let me know.

Charlie

P.S. Where does the 2880-watt number come from ?

P.P.S. There has to be a ground bus-bar in the panel -- if it's a main panel (not a sub-panel) the ground buss and the neutral buss are connected in the panel. Could you clarify what you have in the panel.

Led 1 and led 2 both are red, what does that indicate?


Led 2 flashing indicates the the computer is undergoing POST (testing components). If it flashing then something is wrong, usually the computer beeps a cumber of times which translates to a code eg ram error.

When led 2 is stable, the computer completed POST and is booting up through bios and then the OS.

Led 1 on which means the computer is receiving power.

Hello. The red and the black are the hot wires. Therefore, connect one of your conductors to the red and the other conductor to the black. Use wirenuts. The bare ground wire should be solidly attached to the new unit's green wire using a wire nut.

No i didn't. I need instructions for wiring a


you have baclk and red wire supply and a black and red wire to load (baseboard).
your switch will have 2 black and 2 red.
connect blk supply to 1 black on switch ( it doesn't matter which one)
connect red supply to 1 red on switch
then
connect black from baseboard to black switch
connect red from baseboard to red switch
if multiple baseboards that have several loads at thermostat then just connect baseboard blacks together and reds together before connecting at switch.
