SOURCE: 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]

SOURCE: what braker for 240 volts 500 watts 2-1 amps

if you are running a new circuit for this one heater than a simple 2-pole 15 amp breaker will do fine, it is also acceptable to use a 2-pole 20 amp breaker, as long as you are in the united states. since you have such a small unit you can put 7 of these heaters on one 20 amp breaker.

Need a wiring diagram for rheem electric water 50 gallon 2007 model

1) Copy following links for standard wiring that applies to all brands electric water heater: wire colors vary, and do not matter.
You probably have ordinary residential non-simultaneous water heater.

2) Look at tank label.
Typical label will show number of elements (upper and lower)
And give wattage for each element.
Notice also total connected watts.
If total connected watts is same as individual upper or lower element watts, then you have ordinary residential non-simultaneous tank.

You want spring-operated 30 minute countdown timer for 240Volt electric heater.
You don't say how many watts your heater is.
Answer is longer without knowing watts.

1) As you know, you can turn off any 240Volt circuit by turning OFF one hot leg.
People are skeptical when working with 240 V and believe both hot wires have to be turned OFF.
But you know the heater needs both hot wires. Disconnect one hot wire and see.
240V water heater thermostats operate in this way ... they turn OFF 1 hot wire.

2) Intermatic FF30 and FD30 series timers can directly turn off 1 leg of 240Volt 2500 watt heater.
Max 2500 watt, no more.
This Intematic timer is rated for wattage shown. With other brands, check the rating.
Amazon sells FD30 30-minute

3) Intermatic also makes DPST timer if you want to turn OFF both hot wires
Aplussupply sells FF and FD Intermatic timers, and 30-minute DPST model FD430M
The rating is same as shown above.

4) If your wattage is greater than 2500 watts, then you need to install a 30amp contactor with 120Volt coil. Timer turns magnetic coil on-off, coil opens and closes contacts that turn heater on-off. You can use any ordinary light-weight wall timer with a contactor.

5) Following page gives you information for installing a contactor to handle 240Volt loads up to 5500 watts.
Pages show how to wire, where to buy, what to buy.

Purchased "Reliance Lowboy electric water heater"

The water heater has two 4500 watt elements.
However both elements are not turned-ON at same time
So the water heater is 4500 Watts

Volts x Amps = watts
Amps =watts divided by volts
Amps = 4500 Watts divided by 240 Volts
Amps= 18.75

So that says a 20 amp breaker ... except for the 80% rule
80% rules says for safety, your Amp rating should be multiplied by 80%

20 amp breaker X 80% = 16 amps
20 amp breaker is actually safe for just 16 amps, and your water heater draws 18.75 amps.

The calculation shows you need a 30 Amp breaker.
30 Amp breaker requires 10 gauge wire.

I had the same problem the starter was the problem, found the stater will engage by itself not sure why but think it could be the wireing, or a swich. also check the solenoide it could be bad if the starter is bad.

Find the breaker that feeds it, it will be a double pole. (two pole). Turn of the power to heater. Open it up and disconnect power wires and cap off (or tape). Then, take out mounting screws and remove from wall.

Maytag model MDE7057AYW 5600 Watts dryer runs ,but

5600 watts will not operate off 120 volts.
This is a 220/240 volt hookup.
There are 2 legs of 120 volts each that operate the dryer.
The only part requiring 220v is the heater.
Otherwise 120v routes through the various controls and relays.

Basboard heater installation

if the heater is 120 volt or 240 volt its really pretty easy. at either end is a cover. remove the cover and you'll see a wirenut or maybe just two wires. one side has an integral thermostat. connect your supply to the two wires on the thermostat. connect the other end in your breaker box with the appropriate sized circuit breaker. wire size feeding it will depend on its current draw. how many watts is the heater? 1500 watts will draw 6.25 amps at 240 volts so you can use 14 ga wire. 2000 watts will draw 8.3 at 240 volts - so 14 ga is still ok. 2500 watts at 240 draws 10.41 amps. 3000 watts draws 12.5 amps at this stage I'd use 12 gauge on a 20 amp breaker.
