About the only way I can figure is to let the room get very cool and adjust the thermostat to its lowest setting. now turn on the unit. monitor the heat until the stat just opens. the thermostat bimetal will be closed and will open when the bimetal expands and opens its contacts. another way is to hitch up a chart recorder to measure temperature with its output connected to the heater. [too expensive for you or the DIY to accomplish]

I do not have the manual to my fan forced heater (model HF-0034) and I am not sure how to work it. It keeps shutting off after a few seconds of heat. Then it will turn on again in 10 minutes and back off...


A lot of this, may be caused by the temperature setting and where the heater is placed. If the temperature is not set high enough, as opposed the ambient room temperature, it probably only turns ON briefly. Also, if the heater is placed near a heat source or in direct sun light, it's sensing the temperature from those sources, rather than the room air.

Try moving it to a another location and setting the temperature on the unit a bit higher.

Hope this helped you to solve the problem. Please let me know.

Do rinnai heaters run efficiently if turned up and down often?


Maintaining the lowest acceptable setting and leaving it at that temperature is the most economical way to run the unit. If the space is going to be unoccupied for an extended time (several hours), lower temperatures are okay. This minimizes the need to burst the heat to warm the space quicker. As I understand your unit, it minimizes electrical & gas consumption by basing the need on the temperature difference of actual space temperature and setpoint. The larger the gap, the more power and gas is consumed.
In summary, when the space is occupied, maintain a consistent temperature setting. When the space is unoccupied, maintain a lower setpoint.

Hope this helps. Good Luck. :-)

I have to play with thermostat to get my heating system on


You did not make it clear if the thermostat is a programmable unit or not. I am wondering if the thermostat is not set on the correct heat anticipation setting. A heat anticipater is a small heater that helps the thermostat turn off before it over shoots the desired temperature setting. If the thermostat is set for a 5 degree setting, it will turn off at 63 degrees if set at 68. If the anticipater was set at 1 or 2 degrees, it will shut off the heater at 66 or 67. Newer thermostats will only allow the thermostat to cycle 6 times per hour so if you never reach the desired temp, you have to wait 10 minutes before it will allow a call for heat. Check the installation instructions to see if there is a setting where you can get the anticipator temperature closer to your set temp. Good luck.

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.

Drawing current but not producing any heat.


I am assuming this is an electric wall mount heater, if the unit is drawing current then it should relate to heat as 3.41 btu is = 1 watt.
take the voltage reading and the amp draw and mutiply them to determine the wattage eg; 240 volts x 20.8 amps = 5000 watts = 17,050 btu. if the unit is fan assited and you are drawing 1 to 2 amps this would indicate the fan is runnning without the heat element being energized hope this helps

Fahrenheat 4000 watt wall mounted heater shuts off and needs reset


the reset is probably an inline circuit breaker. if you can get hold of am amprobe clamp around ammeter, check the current when the unit is running at full power. the reading you get check against the current rating of the inline breaker. your fan motor bearings may be dry increasing the current draw of the unit and tripping the breaker. try oiling the fan bearings with a light oil NOT WD-40.

Install and hot wire heater


You can be assured that the element is 240 volt. The fan motor is also rated at 240 volt. the wires you have black - black are the connections you make to the line. Use a 12/2 with ground. Use a double pole 20 breaker in your panelbox. The green wire is the equipment ground - connect this to the bare wire from the 12/2. On the 12/2 cable - there will be two colors, one black and one white. Wrap a couple of turns of black tape on the white wire both at the heater location and on the white in the panelbox. connect the 12/2 to your 2 pole breaker, the black wire and the taped white to the breaker.
