Question about Cadet Manufacturing CADET Softheat Portable Hydronic Baseboard Heater 1500 Watts 120 Volts 72 (EPA1500/3W) 13169

Open Question

Shortly after installation, my 8 foot Cadet baseboard hydronic heater (240v) began gurgling. I checked to see if it was level, and it was, and i then removed if and stood it on its end and moved any air bubbles into the expansion end, and then reinstalled it with a shim so that it was slightly more than level for testing. It still gurgles, and i am trying to find a solution for it before i give it back to Home Depot, get my $260 back and find another manufacturer who can do this right. I have a number of portable Intertherms, and they have never gurgled endlessly like this. Is it fixable?? Thanks, DR

SOURCE: Oil-filled SoftHeat baseboard heater makes loud gurgling noises

I have the same (I think) electric baseboard heater (no, it's not a boiler system). Actually, we have three. Recently, one started making the loud noises, then it stopped working two days ago.

I'm wondering if the original poster ever found more information, or if anyone else has an idea. There is still power to the heater -- the little light on the knob is on. There's just no heat.

Thanks!

How do I know if I have 240v when replacing old baseboard heaters


When you turned off the power to the heaters was the breakers a double (2 pole ) one? If so, then yes, it defintely is 240v. There are very few 110v baseboard heaters out there anyway. The best way to check is to have an electric meter and check it out for sure. Actually if you are working on electrical circuits and you do not have an electric meter to check if you have them shut down for sure, you are on dangerous ground. Always be safe and check before working on any circuit.

How far off the floor do i install hot water baseboard heaters


When you install the baseboard heater make sure the bottom part which is the all thing must sit over the floor and touch the tiles or carpet and use 2 or 3 wood screw against the wall. That is it and do not put any kind of paper or cotton or material things above the cover. Beside that you are ok and it is not like an electric wall heater.

measure the room, then multiply the length by the width to get the square feet you want to heat. multiply this by 10 and that is the watts you need to heat the room assuming you are using standard 220/240v baseboards.

Electric Hydronic Baseboard Heater Under Electrical Recepticle


Hello,
I believe you interpretation of the code is a bit skewed in that the fundamental concern is to not route power cords over a heat source which might cause the insulation on that wire to exceed its rated operating temp and fail. The heaters themselves have shrowds over them so there are no exposed surfaces hot enough to melt wire insulation and when you think about it ..2000 watts disipated over a long baseboard section is not that hot. If I were you, I would go ahead and install them and not worry about the warning.. The warning also removes any liability from the heater manufacturer in the event something happens.. Common sense would dictate that you wouldn't intentionally drape power cords all over the heaters... Just use common sense and not worry about it..
Regards,
Rick
