    The plastic Dial is stripped where it connects to the metal post. Need a new Dial and maybe one of the other models Plastic Dial would work from Fahrenheat or annother manufacturer

Hi, what you may want to do, since the plastic is stripped on the dial, that is on the metal post, is buy you a package of JB weld. A 2-part epoxy that works great for these types of repairs. You can get it at a hardware store or auto parts store. Drying time depends on the package you get, they have a fast dry, and a 4 to 6 hour set up time. This epoxy is awesome and will do the job. I have looked online for something that would replace this control knob, but can't find anything, so I came up with this. It will do the job and is user friendly. Just center the shaft or better yet, turn it all the way off. Apply the epoxy to the shaft, and place the round plastic knob on the shaft to the off position. You will be ready to go. Please let me know how this goes for you, and I know by the time you pick this up, mix it, and put it on, you will be way ahead of solving this problem.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7

Not sure hooked up correctly


The black and white wires should both go to the breaker. Not just the black wire. If you hook only the black wire to the breaker then you are only feeding the unit with 110 instead of 220. Both wires need to be hot.

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.

Can someone please tell me what is the lowest temperature setting a Fahrenheat 3000 Watt Large Room Fan-Forced Wall Heater Model FZL3004 will turn on at ?


about the only way I can figure is to let the room get very cool and adjust the thermostat to its lowest setting. now turn on the unit. monitor the heat until the stat just opens. the thermostat bimetal will be closed and will open when the bimetal expands and opens its contacts. another way is to hitch up a chart recorder to measure temperature with its output connected to the heater. [too expensive for you or the DIY to accomplish]

Fahrenheat 4000 watt wall mounted heater shuts off and needs reset


the reset is probably an inline circuit breaker. if you can get hold of am amprobe clamp around ammeter, check the current when the unit is running at full power. the reading you get check against the current rating of the inline breaker. your fan motor bearings may be dry increasing the current draw of the unit and tripping the breaker. try oiling the fan bearings with a light oil NOT WD-40.

Low air flow


most fan forced wall heaters do not move a lot of air. check the cfm rating on the heater. the fan sucks in air from the bottom and forces it up to the top where the element is. broan and nutone have good air flow.
