Hi jamaica 1

Yes it will probably still work, but with reduced output. About half to be more precise Though I would not recommend using it if it has a fan. The Fan also will run at a slower speed, and may not even start, causing the heater to overheat, or burn the element out.

USING IT MAY CAUSE A FIRE RISK. or burn it out.

If I have explained this clearly for you, a FixYa rating would be great. If you want to ask more questions, happy to help :)

I NEED A WIRING DIAGRAM FOR A 120/240/24V ACME CONTROL TRANSFORMER.IT HAS H1,H3,H2 AND H4 ON ONE SIDE(PRIMARY). SIDE 2 HAS X2,F1,F2 AND X2 (SECONDARY). IT CAME WITH NO INSTRUCTIONS AND I NEED TO HOOK IT UP...


If you're wiring up 120 volts to the primary then you need to connect H1 and H3 together, then connect H2 and H4 together. Then connect one side of line (120 volts) to H1 and H3 and connect the other side of line (120 volts) to H2 and H4. Then for the 24 volts secondary X1 is one side of your 24 volts and X2 is the other side of your 24 volts.
For 240 volt primary connect H2 and H3 together, Then connect one side of your Primary (240 volts) to H1 and connect the other side of your primary (240 volts to H4. Then your Secondary 24 volts is still X1 and X2.

I have a FahrenheatPro. and it doesn't seems to not throw out hea


the baseboard heaters out put goes down a lot more than you would think when used on 120 volts ... thats because not only is the voltage half of what it should be, the current is also half .. so the total power (the product of voltage and current) is one fourth of what it would be if operated on 240 volts .. you are operating at only 186 watts instead of the 750 watts you should have .. so you would have to have 4 times as many heaters for the same heat output .. you likely have the 240 volts available (most houses do) .. there are two phases .. each 120 volts .. when both phases are used together then you get the 240 volts total .. another option is you can use heaters designed for 120 volts .. the current would increase to a little more than 6 amps per heater .. some heaters have a jumper you can move for 120 volt service or 240 volt service... you can use those with either voltage ..

Replacing old with new


Are the heaters rated at the same voltage, if so just connect the white to one heater wires and the black to the other heater wire..Does the white wire have a tape around it. If it does that indicates that it is a 120 volt cuircuit and not a neutral, which means you have a 240 volt supply. Make sure your heater is 240 vac.

take a close look at the tubular element with a magnifying glass. the volts value should be stamped into the element. most baseboard heaters are 240 volt at low, high and medium density. wattage could be from 750 to 1500 watts

Basboard heater installation


if the heater is 120 volt or 240 volt its really pretty easy. at either end is a cover. remove the cover and you'll see a wirenut or maybe just two wires. one side has an integral thermostat. connect your supply to the two wires on the thermostat. connect the other end in your breaker box with the appropriate sized circuit breaker. wire size feeding it will depend on its current draw. how many watts is the heater? 1500 watts will draw 6.25 amps at 240 volts so you can use 14 ga wire. 2000 watts will draw 8.3 at 240 volts - so 14 ga is still ok. 2500 watts at 240 draws 10.41 amps. 3000 watts draws 12.5 amps at this stage I'd use 12 gauge on a 20 amp breaker.
