  • Wiring Question-220V.

    Hi, I have a question about wiring? I bought a 220V. floor shop heater, which has an ajustable thermostat.
    The problem is when I don't want the heat on, I turn the thermostat down to Zero and the heat stops but not the Fan!! OK. My question is, can I put an inline switch in the heater cord, remembering that it's on 220V.??.......... Norm :

    I've never seen an inline cord switch rated for 230v or any significant amperage... is it hard wired?

      Hi; No , it has a plug thats pluged into a 220V. receptical. I imagine the thermostat is supposed to shut it down? I turned OFF at night, when I opened the shop door in the morning, the darn thing was running?? So now I just unplug it from the receptical at night!! PS. IT'S really 240V.!! 220V.,- 240V. same thing I guess??

        Open up the fan and look at the wiring,it sounds like somebody bypassed a relay or it's stuck. The fan motor should kick out after a while. Sometimes the fan might run for a short while to cool it down.

            Instructions any insight as to the proper operating of the fan? Does it say anything about the fan being on all the time?

            Sounds like a new unit so I doubt anyone messed with the wiring inside.

              ED, Hi; Ya it's new maybe two weeks. As far as instrutions, I probably chucked-em. If I recall there was nothing specific other than ratate the numbered dial on the back.
              I'll have to check it this morning . Maybe I'm missing something?? Will get back to you!!........... Norm :

                Wire it through a outlet with a dedicated breaker, maybe?

                  Thanks, It's on an outlet withv a dedicated breaker now, as ED said previously it's new.
                  I can't see there being a Wiring problem!
                  Maybe I didn't turn it fully off, I will Keep a closer eye on it!!
                  Thanks again for all the Ideas !!!!..... Norm :

                    Look for some sort of switch inline with the fan,there is no way the fan should keep running like that. If possible take a picture and post it up.

                      Check the TStat and make sure it doesn't have a small switch that is set on run and not on auto.
