Disconnected the baseboard heater - turned power back on - no power


If the breaker (you mean from the main board?) is turning off there is a line fault or short somewhere. If the breaker is not kicked off then there is a loose connection or maybe a small blown fuse in the base board heater unit itself.

How to install two electric baseboard heats together?


Connecting the heaters in parallel means that essentially the two wires coming from the power source (the thermostat) go to the two ends of the first heater, and the same two wires then continue on and are connected to the two ends of the second heater as well. This means that each heater will receive the full 220 volts, and each one will draw the amperage it was designed to in order to reach its maximum temperature. As long as the sum of the two amperages is less than the size of the circuit breaker (20 amps in the case of baseboard heaters), then they both get what they need. If you put too many in parallel on the same circuit, you simply blow the circuit breaker and nothing warms up.

Yes it is acceptable and common practice. You do not need a neutral on a 220 Volt circuit. Just wrap it with black electrical tape so anyone who gets into the wiring later will know that both are hot. This is accepted by the National Electrical Code.

How do I know if I have 240v when replacing old baseboard heaters


When you turned off the power to the heaters was the breakers a double (2 pole ) one? If so, then yes, it defintely is 240v. There are very few 110v baseboard heaters out there anyway. The best way to check is to have an electric meter and check it out for sure. Actually if you are working on electrical circuits and you do not have an electric meter to check if you have them shut down for sure, you are on dangerous ground. Always be safe and check before working on any circuit.

Cadet Thermostat


from the mod number it looks like you have electric baseboard. these do not have blowers in them they work off natural air movement. but heat up rather quickly. your gonna have to chk if baseboard is getting power to determine weather or not the t stat or the heater is not working. but first chk your circuit breakers. most heaters are 220v (double breaker)

Heater is excessivly noisy, can be heard over tv


first, my research into the Cadet model #09954 is a 240v unit. if it is wired to only 120v that may be your problem. I am not even sure it work work on 120v.

Baseboard heater cadet model


Check the circuit it is plugged into first with a tester or something else.
If it is 240v there are two hot wires.
You have to examine it first for power and then I would check the thermostat next.
You could have an open element.
