One, double pole, 20 amp breaker feeding the two heaters will be okay IF you have #12 AWG wire and NO other loads on the circuit. 4000 watts will pull 16.6 amps, that's max for a 20 amp circuit.

I have a base board heater in the basement. It's never been connect up the wiring is all there from the breaker box to the heater,it has 1blk.1white and the ground. heater has 1blk. 1 red & therostat


You need to take a meter and see if you have 220 volts between the black and white. if you do have 220 then hook white wire to the red on the on the thermostat and the black to the black wire on the thermostat. on the other side of the thermostat hook the red and black to the red and black to the heater

Electric Travel Cooker, Sanyo RN-AVA308, will not heat up, where can I have it serviced?


I have the same unit and the same model number. Mine also not heat up. upon investigation I noticed the heating element has a 4 wires which I believe each pair (2 wires) meant for 100/120V and the other one is for 220/240V. I checked 2 wires (1 pair) has an open circuit while the other pair is ok. I directly connected the heating element to the power and it was heated up. I measured the resistance and it was around 78 ohm. from my lame calculation this is for 100/120V heating element. the 220/240V was busted.

Since mine on 220/240V power grid, to use the working 78 ohm heating element the estimated power would be P=VxV/R, around 738W which is way too high than the rated power (365W) for this voltage. I plan to add the dummy resistor 82 ohm + 78 ohm heating element to reduce its power around 370W. Hope it works.

Hello I have a Fahrenheat Ceiling-Mount Industrial Heater 240v rated. Can I use a 220 plug to wire it and connect it to my 220 aux plug in my garage? If so how should I wire it to the heater itself?


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

you will have to install a 30 amp breaker, and make sure the wire is rated for 40 amps, or 110% of 30 amps, you can wire direct to the heater if you wish.

Dear sir I am trying to connect Model Et104, my questions are as follows: I am having a problem connectiing your system. Both power source 110v and 220 volts have to connect to your system???? If my...


Fixya answers questions about other people's products.

I specialize in timers.
Intermatic is changing their product line
I suggest you download the manual:
http://www.intermatic.com/~/media/files/intermatic/products/instructions/timers/et104c%20-%20english.ashx

The manual is generic across all the ET100 series products.
The manual does not describe individual models.
The instructions are on the timer door.
Look for the clock voltage.
The clock voltage tells the story of your timer model.

NOW lets say your clock voltage is 120V.
I believe you suspect the clock voltage is 120V.

To make this timer work with your 240V cable, there are 2 methods

Method 1) To meet code, run a white wire from nearby 120V receptacle.
This is a Neutral wire.
Connect the Neutral to terminal 1
Connect one leg from the 240V cable (1 of the 240V wires) to terminal 2 and that will complete the 120V circuit and the clock will run.
This is true because each leg of a 240V circuit is actually 120V, and only when the two legs are combined do they produce the 240V circuit

Method 2) Connect bare ground wire to terminal 1 and to grounding screw
The bare wire connects to the Neutral busbar in the main breaker box, so it will complete the 120V circuit just as described above.
This is not code, but your clock will operate.
Then connect one leg from the 240V cable to the terminal 2

IF your clock is 240 V, then connect both legs of the 240V cable to terminals 1 and 2

My EH40 is not supplying power to the water heater. I hooked the power line in to posts 1 and 2 and I hooked the load out to posts 4 and 6. When I use my power checker it reads no power to posts 3,4,5,...


I have an EH 40 sitting in front of me right now.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-EH40-hot-water-heater-timer.html
The link above shows correct 240V water heater timer wiring for EH40
Link below shows an overview picture of EH 40 connected to 240V water heater
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/EH40-water-heater-circuit-5.jpg
http://waterheatertimer.org/240-v-water-heater-circuit.html


EH40 has a 240V clock.
Terminals 1 and 2 send power to the 240V clock
Power to the clock terminals do not pass through timer to any other terminal

How to wire EH40 for 240V
240V line has 2 hot wires from breaker box.
Lets call these wires Hot1 and Hot2
These wire are interchangeable on 240V circuit
Hot1 connects to terminal 1 with a jumper to terminal 3 (or connect to 3 and jumper to 1)
Hot2 connects to terminal 2 with a jumper to terminal 5 (or connect to 5 and jumper to 2)

240V circuit has 2 wires going to the Load
Let's call these Load1 and Load2
These wires are interchangeable on 240V circuit
Load1 connects to terminal 4
Load2 connects to terminal 6

If the timer is still not working, go back to the breaker and test if it is delivering 240V to the circuit.
If breaker is bad on one leg, then the circuit can test with live power, but the 240V appliance will not work.
240V circuit requires both legs of 240V before circuit is complete.

Not sure hooked up correctly


The black and white wires should both go to the breaker. Not just the black wire. If you hook only the black wire to the breaker then you are only feeding the unit with 110 instead of 220. Both wires need to be hot.

Coleman Powermate Progen 5000, the 240 locking 4 plug, how to wir


The L1420p is a common plug used for most all generators having 20amp outlet with ground. The markings on the plug are as follows; x,y, are hot connections 115v each; w connection is neutral; g is ground. You will need a four conductor cable to connect all the wires. In some cases, there is no need to connect the ground wire because on the generator, the ground is the frame. Check your manual for the proper method of attaching a ground to your generator. So unless you are grounding the frame to a ground rod or other method, the ground wire on the plug just goes to frame. If the heater is used on a jobsite, check local codes or OSHA requirements. You could also just ground the heater like many appliances in the home where there is an extra ground wire from the frame of the appliance to ground. Good Luck

Electric baseboard heaters


measure the room, then multiply the length by the width to get the square feet you want to heat. multiply this by 10 and that is the watts you need to heat the room assuming you are using standard 220/240v baseboards.

Plugged 4w 120v trimmer into 220v outlet with a 50-2000w 220-110v coverter - it blew fuse and doesn't work. soldering melted off wire inside


scrap the trimmer...
probablly damaged beyond cost of new one

a step down transformer would have been a better choice than a voltage converter ( not trying to be a wise guy here)..
