Replacing a baseboard heater
I recently purchased a 240v, 1500w baseboard heater to replace the one in my (1996) home that had become fouled with a melted plastic toy on the element. Anyway, I assumed replacement would be simply disconnecting the old one and reconnection the new one.
The new heater has 2 wires, this would be easy!
Unfortunately the old heater has 2 wires for the power, and another 2 which I assume are for the thermostat on the wall. Is there a way that I can make this work? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Chances are, the 2 wires from the thermostat controlled an on/off device within the old heater. The new one apparently doesn't have one of those.
This would mean the stat is wired to 'switch' only one 'side' of the 240V feed.
Initself a problem.
Should this be the case, hopefully a heating with a build in T-stat is an option.
Check art 427, part 3 ( assuming again) resistance heating, part 7 , Control & Protection (pg 70-284 2002 ed)go on about proper disconnecting means.
