Question about Fahrenheat FBE15002 Baseboard Heater

1 Answer

Electric baseboard heater worked last week. but when I

Electric baseboard heater worked last week. when I turn the wall control on there is a clicking, which tells me that the there is power. the marretts connecting the wires is secure. The breaker is a double pull so it must be 220 volts. could the problem be with the copper wire (sensor) that runs the length. I painted the covers of the baseboard heater and did move/replacced them back into their cradles very carefully.? I checked and clean the end tip (not where the wires come in) with a very a fine emery board to remove any paint or dirt (visable). Not sure what to do next. HELP.

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.

We have a NELCO baseboard electrical heater, circa 1970s. We wish to remove it temporarily from the wall to permit new flooring installation under the heater. How are they attached to the wall?


It is attached with 2-screws or 2-nails. Depending on who installed it. I970's, I'm betting on 2-nails.
If you remove the cover, you will see where the nails are located on the inside back wall of the heater compartment and are attached to the baseboard. Be sure to turn the circuit breaker for the heater to the OFF position, be for attempting to unwire and move the heater. The circuit breaker should remain OFF until the heater is reinstalled.

Okay couple questions here because either you have hot water baseboards or you have electric baseboard heaters.
- if the system is a hydronic baseboard heater fed form main boiler, usually this means your space heat is controlled by a zone valve which the zone valve is controlled by your thermostat.
-if you find the zone is controlled by a zone valve than it is possible the zone valve is defective causing hot water to bleed past the zone valve even though your t-stat is telling it to close.
- first find out what excatly the baseboard is heated by either water or electricity
-next personal message me and I can walk you through it

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.

Disconnect baseboard heater


After confirming that the heater circuit is de-energized, simply go to whatever heater that you want to disconnect, open the junction box, remove the heater wires and cap them off. Twist the remaining circuit wires together, wire nut, replace the juction box cover and on to the next one. There are ways to install a thermostat at each heater too.

How far off the floor do i install hot water baseboard heaters


When you install the baseboard heater make sure the bottom part which is the all thing must sit over the floor and touch the tiles or carpet and use 2 or 3 wood screw against the wall. That is it and do not put any kind of paper or cotton or material things above the cover. Beside that you are ok and it is not like an electric wall heater.

Electric baseboard heater


You need a meter, it will be hard without this! If you have 220v in the wall, then think of it like this; each wire is 120v. Test to each other, you get 220v. The thermostat is a double pole, you said. So think of it like this, its an adjustable temperature controlled switch that lets electricity through at the temp. you set it at. If you have 120v from one wire connected to one end of the element, and the other 120v connected to the other end of the element, then it will work. DO NOT CONNECT THE 120V TOGETHER. IT MUST GO THROUGH THE ELEMENT FIRST. The thermostat should be between the power from the wall and the element, to control the temperature.
