Electric Wall Heater Sparking

I have an electric wall heater in my condo that's worked fine for years. But the first time I turned the thermostat on this Winter, a bunch of blue sparks lit up in the heater itself. Of course I turned it off. I tried it a second time and it happened again. Any ideas what could be causing this?

I'm puzzled by what may be causing low heat output from a Markel wall-mounted 240V electric heater, new from around 1984; cannot find model number. I'm not sure of the wattage rating. The heater element...


your element may have metered out but still may not getting as hot as it used too found this on my hot water cylinder, the hot water was only warm not hot like it should be so pulled out it meterwd fine but when i placed a new one in the cylinder and let the water heat up it was a lot hotter than it had been and now i can't get out of the shower but it was the element not heating as it should have and thats just old age i bet i don't run as hot when im old and it was nearly thirty year old heater, if it was new from 1984 it sounds like its had a full life i don't really expect heater to last more than thirty years well really more than twenty years anyway and a heater from the eighties couldn't have never been that efficient and **** a bit of power too i'd upgrade to at least a 2000 model heater you'll actually save money by buying a newer one!

Electric Hydronic Baseboard Heater, 240 Volt: WHEN I TURNED ON MY ELECTRIC BASEBOARD HEATER THER...


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.

The wall thermostat will click even if there is no power. You will need an electric metere to trace down the problem. May be a bad breaker, bad limit switch or the element could have went bad. You need to follow the electric and see what is interupting the flow.

Williams wall furnace, top vent.


I've replaced a Williams wall gas heater non-electric. The thermostat is connected right and mounted on the wall. But, there's a thick black copper wire on the side of the furnace tagged thermostat. I don't know what to do with it? Where do you connect this wire? When it touches the top screw of the three screws running vertically(where the other wires are connected). The burner lights up and stays on, even if you play with the wall thermostat. Touching the other two screws doesn't do anything. Now, the manual talks about connecting it to the venting wires? Extra wires coming from the top or maybe somewhere else in the wall? I've left it connected to the first screw, ran the heater. But, it never turns off? Any suggestions? Thanks
