Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

you will have to install a 30 amp breaker, and make sure the wire is rated for 40 amps, or 110% of 30 amps, you can wire direct to the heater if you wish.

Could be either. But, I suspect that wiring is getting hot enough to trip the breaker. Check all of your wiring to see if there is a hot spot or insulation melted.

Need instructions on how to install a 750W Fahrenheat heater. Wire size, breaker size, etc.


Hi,
To know what to tell you you need to know if it is 1 phase or 3 phase and what the voltage is that it will be running on...

I'm replacing a non-hydronic electric baseboard heating unit with a Fahrenheat hydronic one. My old unit was 240v using 2 conductors plus bare ground wire. The fahrenheat (PLF series) unit's instructions...


Hello. The red and the black are the hot wires. Therefore, connect one of your conductors to the red and the other conductor to the black. Use wirenuts. The bare ground wire should be solidly attached to the new unit's green wire using a wire nut.

I have the Fahrenheat Model FUH 724 heater. The manual states that it can be wired as a 240v 7500W unit but the directions and the unit itself only allow for three wires to be connected Black, White, and...


1st you will belucky if you actually have 240 v, most
homes are usually 220v. In youyr case you need to start at the breaker panel.

This is an example:
You have a Double Pole Single Throw breaker. Black
Wire is hot and goes into one side of breaker,if you havea red wire that goes into the other have of the
breaker.

The white wire ties in the nuetral bar and the bare wire into the ground bus bar. At the unit you hook up the red and the black wire which will supply the 240
Volts, you could tie the white and the ground wires together into the grounding terminal

I have a 3 car garage in Minnesota all insulated attached to house. What size and type of heater do I need. I also have 4 dogs that go in and out constantly. its about 840 SQ FT


Generally they say about 10 per SQ/Ft so in reallity you would need 8400 watts. You would then have to consider your ceiling height. If it is a 10 ft. ceiling and the fact that your dogs are going in and out you may need even more.

Electric space heater contactor won't stay latched


Jumpered the bimetal thermostat and everything worked smoothly. Tried to clean contacts in thermostat with no luck, so ordered a replacement. At least it was cheaper than the contactor.
