Question about Fahrenheat Electric Hydronic Baseboard Heater, 240 Volt

1 Answer

I am trying to connect two 240 V 70" hydronic heaters. They will reside in adjacent rooms. The diagram provided in the installation manual is confusing for connecting multiple heaters. I was planning to connect the first heater to the power source on one side, and daisy chain from the other side, to the 2nd heater. Is this correct??

No, the resistance of the electric going through the one heater will cut down the voltage going to the second one and it will not get hot. You need to pull the power off where you hook to the first heater so that they both get full voltage. They need to be hooked up parrellel and not series.

My PLF504 detonated this morning (11-25-2010). It worked fine for two years then BANG. Room was lit by flame coming from center (left to right) of unit. I wrote Marley asking them to honor the 10 year heater element warranty. Also, no burnt wires at thermostat connection, no dust bunnies on the fins. Source of fire was the fluid filled encapsulated heater core. Thank God, circuit breaker tripped and wall was tiled.

what you have is called a hydronic heating system.
this heating system is completely isolated from your water heater I believe this as most hydronic systems I have installed circulate water through the furnace to heat the house. If this is true you need only to connect your old water heater cold water supply side to the tankless and, old hot water side to the house system: the showers/tubs/sinks etc. in your home.
my appologies if I have missunderstood your inquiry.

You should have the black going to 1 breaker, and the white going to an adjacent 2nd breaker.

Check that you have 240 VAC to the thermostat, and that the breakers are fully set.

If you have 240 VAC to the stat, check that 240 VAC is being powered to the heater.

Let me know what you find. (I am assuming the heat strips are good.).

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.

Need wiring help with Fahrenheat PLF754 240V baseboard heater with Fahrenheat PT2DS double-pole thermostat Open kimono - I know enough about electrical wiring to be dangerous. I have a Fahrenheat PLF754 240V baseboard heater and a Fahrenheat PT2DS (also known as Marley T2) double-pole integrated thermostat that and the heater isn't working. My power supply is a single cable with white, black, and red wires. I traced the supply line back to the circuit panel and found that the red and black wires terminate on a DP-40A breaker. The white wire is grounded. The heater has 2 red wires exiting a center tube at the end of the heater where the thermostat goes and 2 black wires exiting a small cut-out near the top of the same end. There's also a green ground wire from the heater. The thermostat has 2 red wires on the left top and bottom, 2 black wires on the right top and bottom, and a green ground wire. An electrician friend of mine (since left town) installed the wiring, heater, and thermostat for me. It worked fine for about 1 year and then stopped working. I'm trying to troubleshoot the problem but don't have any documentation on how this thing should be wired or how I might isolate the problem to the thermostat, heater, or both. I did verify that the power supply is good. Everything is currently wired as follows: Black power supply to black thermostat (top) Red power supply to black thermostat (bottom) One black heater to red thermostat (top) Other black heater to one red heater Other red heater to red thermostat (bottom) Green heater to green thermostat White power supply not connected - just wire-nutted Can anyone confirm this is the correct wiring for this configuration and, if not, what it should be? If this is correct, how best to isolate the problem? Thanks!
