    No the previous answer was not the solution. Both pieces of baseboard are on there own circuit operated by a remote thermostat.Previously they both worked, both units have voltage at the unit.(line voltage). but both units refuse to heat up.

Hi,

To make sure you have 240V power to the element you need to have a meter with long enough leads or connect a wire to one end of the element so that you can get a reading across the element...
One lead needs to be on one end of the element and the other go directly to the other end....you should have 240v across the two ends... if not then find out where the power is stopping at... by back tracking on the wires...
if you have the 240v across the element then the element is bad, but that rarely happens...

Hi, in my former home there was a minor wiring error which prevented my living room heater from coming on regardless of its thermostat setting. I noticed one day that it was on and found the problem with the entry way thermostat. Unless the entry way thermostat was switched on the living room heater would not work. I had to change a couple of wires in the thermostat box to solve the problem. Could you have a similar type problem

Sounds like possibly you haven't removed all packing material. All machines will produce a strange odor upon start up but should go away rather quickly. Be sure to Read the manual in it's entirety

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

Smell


the heat may be affecting the unit's paint. normally the oil used in manufacturing burns off the first time the unit is used. maybe the proximity of the element to the case is too close.
