Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

There is a Singer Baseboard Heater in one of my rooms. We bumped it while moving furniture today and it turned on. We have tried moving the dial both left and right and can't get it to turn off. Any idea of how to turn it off? If not, how do we remove it altogether.

I was able to determine and turn off the breaker. I am having a heating and air conditioning company remove the heater altogether. Thank you for checking back with me.

Unit turns lights on but pin doesn't turn them off

Do you have 2 trippers on the dial?-- one marked 'on' and the other 'off' ? Each of these little trippers has a different cam (or bump) on them-- positioned to catch the lever that actuates the switch, and either move it to 'ON'- or to the 'OFF' position.

Can you remove the trippers, and check, (compare them side by side)- Do they have different shaped cams.. (or bumps)?

So the 'ON' tripper might be set (say for example) for 5 AM and the OFF tripper might be set for 10 PM--- and each 24 hours, as the dial rotates once a day,-- each of those bumps catch the lever, and gradually move the lever either to 'ON' or then (at 10 PM-- say) to Off. Repeating every day.

What is happening with yours?-- and what do the Cams look like?
Let us know what you find, and we can go from there

I have just moved in to a flat with a vent axia storage heater. I switched it on last night and although the output in off it is still heating up the room today. Is that normal? thanks Heather

Yes, Heather, it's working correctly. It lives up to it's name "storage heater". When you turned it on last night, it heated and at the same time it was storing heat to be used later, during peak electrical use hours, without having to use any electricity. It's working as it should.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I would like to know how your new baseboard heaters compare with an old baseboard heater I need to replace. How much more energy effecientis your product than an old unit(s) my grandfather put into his...

Glenn, we don't sell anything on this site except ways to solve repair issues. You need to contact several dealers or manufacturers of electric baseboard heaters to answer your question intelligently. Researching online can be a great resource.

Certainly there will be some savings using today's models, but how much has a lot of variables. For example, you can have a 94% efficient furnace. But, if your home is not energy efficient, that 94% efficient furnace doesn't mean much.

Good luck to you. I hope I've headed you in the right direction.

I have baseboard heat in my house (hydronic(?) - not electric). The 3 bedrooms upstairs are always 3 VERY different temperatures. My daughter's room is always cold, sons' room is like the Sahara and our...

what it sound like is that your sons room is the closest room to the boiler and is getting too much of the heates water. your room is probebly the room in the middle and your daughters is the last one. Lets start bye taking and shutting down the valves in youe sons room and or adjusting the circuit setters which is what you probebly have . THey should by on the return line and you can adjust them by just closing them down a little bit at a time or if you have a way to take the temperature of the return and the supply lines then you would try to shoot for around 10 delta t. look at the baseboard heaters where the water come in and that should be where you will find the circuit setters. Good Luck and have a Merrry Christmas
