Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Connecting thermostat to noma baseboard heater model #52-2510-0 using a honeywell thermostat causes a short circuit. How is the noma heater to be wired. Attaching the power source to one end of the heater causes an immediate short circuit. Un-doing the two wires at the other end allows the heater to warm up but causes the thermostat to burn. Is there a special thermostat required for this model and how is the wiring done.

Hi!!
Click on the following link to obtain a manual for your Noma Baseboard Heater. http://www.qualitycraft.com/files/QBD-500%201000%201500%20Baseboard%20IM.pdf The wiring instructions are in the manual. The wires at the ends are not supposed to touch each other. You can use either side to connect the power supply to the heater.
On the Thermostat, I believe the Heater uses a thermostat that runs on 220v, your regular thermostat runs on 24v, that's why the thermostat burns. To make your thermostat work you would need to get a single throw contactor with a 24v coil, a 220v to 24v reducing transformer, etc. I think you better off getting the thermostat form the Noma guys.

Why is my honeywell 8320r1003 short cycling for hot water heat.I have heat set at 65 degress.cycling 2min,3min,the most is 8min.


Hi Bill, after closing your thermostat, is this correct the situation?
And how far is your thermostat from your baseboard heater, if the baseboard is underneath the stat, you should move the stat elsewhere. Hope this help you find the problem.

How to set heat for baseboard heat


They use a 120v thermostat you should be able to buy one wherever you bought the baseboard heaters. Be aware those heaters costs a lot of money to run and dry out your house like a desert buy a few room humidifiers when you get the thermostat. Make sure you use the correct size wiring to the baseboard heaters and the Tstat if you undersize the wires for the breakers involved you'll more than likely cause a electrical fire.

Need a thermostat for model no hz-514


How about a free replacement heater?

There has been a recall since 2002 on some Honeywell portable baseboard heaters. Check this link, or call Honeywell ASAP. The ON/OFF switch failed (with a burning plastic odor) on my HZ-514.

http://www.cpsc.gov/en/Recalls/2002/CPSC-Honeywell-Consumer-Products-Announce-Recall-of-Moveable-Baseboard-Heaters/

"Consumers should stop using these heaters immediately, unplug them, and contact HCP at (800) 290-8495 between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m. ET Monday through Sunday or log on to the company's website at www.honeywell.com to determine whether their heater is part of the recall."

I hope this is a solution for you, and you are safely warm again in the near future. need-thermostat-model-no-hz-514-gwybjxudtwjfkyidrgix5fxs-4-0.jpg CPSC Honeywell Consumer Products Announce Recall of Moveable Baseboard...

Thermostat short circuit


Any use of a device that exceeds it's designed limits can be dangerous.

It may work for a long time, and it may in fact cause a failure of the thermostat. This could cause melting, shorting, etc, and could cause a fire.

The good news is, you're overloading it by less than 1 amp; so it may not fail right away.

I would recommend reducing the load on the thermostat to below the rated wattage to reduce the chance of fire, and prolong the life of the thermostat.

baseboard heaters are usually line voltage thermostats. the wire in your box sounds like a 240 volt circuit. either the 2 blacks or the 2 reds and wire nut the others. I dont know if they need to be connected to each other, not sure where they go or what they are to

CAN I WIRE A 2 WIRE NOMA NON PROGRAMMABLE THERMOSTAT TO A 240 V BASEBOARD HEATER AND HOW. 2 BLACK WIRES ON THE THERMOSTAT. 3600W@240 VOLT


To the best of my knowledge, Noma does not make a high voltage stat (M# would be more helpful). You most likely have a heating only stat that operates on 24VAC. Also, at that wattage, the wires on your thermostat would need to be a minimum of 12ga.

Wiring on thermostat tl7235a1003


OK, here's my guess at this...I hope someone more knowledgable will confirm or correct me.

A line voltage thermostat switches the power to the baseboard heater. In other words, it's just like a wall light switch except it activates and deactivates based on the temperature.

I think your old model CT62 was wired exactly like a light switch. The hot wire to the light is broken then run to the wall switch and then back to the light so there's no neutral wire at a light switch box. This worked fine for your CT62 because it did not need power, it only needed to switch it.

The new model TL7235A1003 requires electrical power because it's programmable so you need both a hot wire and neutral wire at it's installed location. In addition you also need 2 wires leading to the baseboard heater so the thermostat can supply it's power.

I believe L1-L2 are to be connected to the hot/neutral wires, and the Load wires go to the baseboard heater.

If I am correct you will not be able to use this thermostat without some re-wiring.

Good luck.

Make sure BOTH fuses on each heater circuit test ok -- they are no doubt 220V -- hence 2 fuses
