Question about Fahrenheat Heaters
This is for my 1996 built home. It is a Fahrenheat Fan Forced Wall Heater FZL 4004 A and the plastic knob is stripped out and will not turn..just spins. This plastic knob is grey with long stem and says "Warmer" with arow going around. Can I get this item from you? Thanks S Thayer 863-324-5384 or firstname.lastname@example.org
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.

You should have a licensed electrician connect this unit for you.
That being said you need to supply 240v to the unit. You will need a true two pole breaker. (not a split or a twin) There should be two screws or lugs and two slots or clamps on the bus side. These slots must span both phases of your panel. You can measure the voltage across the two screws if you are uncertain, it should read 240v.
Next connect a piece of 12/2 wire to the two screws. Use the black and the white. Land the bare copper wire on the ground bus in the panel.
Then at the unit, land the bare ground to the ground screw and connect your 12/2 to the wires in the unit. You may find the wire nutted together. This is normal, and allows "feeding" the unit from either side. If you are unsure measure the voltage here also, across the white and the black. It should be about 240v.

Hi, what you may want to do, since the plastic is stripped on the dial, that is on the metal post, is buy you a package of JB weld. A 2-part epoxy that works great for these types of repairs. You can get it at a hardware store or auto parts store. Drying time depends on the package you get, they have a fast dry, and a 4 to 6 hour set up time. This epoxy is awesome and will do the job. I have looked online for something that would replace this control knob, but can't find anything, so I came up with this. It will do the job and is user friendly. Just center the shaft or better yet, turn it all the way off. Apply the epoxy to the shaft, and place the round plastic knob on the shaft to the off position. You will be ready to go. Please let me know how this goes for you, and I know by the time you pick this up, mix it, and put it on, you will be way ahead of solving this problem.
