What if I do not want it hardwired in? Can you wire a 240v plug into into so I can disconnect it...

Asked by CSMJVH December 27, 2019

Answer

Yes, you could wire a 240v cord to the heater, then run the 240 close by and set up an outlet. You’d need to ensure the cord exits the unit safely and to code, since the box on the unit isn’t made to support a cord exiting.

First off, this should be installed by a licensed electrician. I also had the wall thermostat installed to control the temperature. The way mine got mounted to the ceiling allows the unit to rotate if needed, but the directions make it look like it needs to be mounted in the forward position in line with the mount. In planning for it to be rigid mounted, we installed the mount at a 45 degree angle diagonally across the garage. This was to try to evenly disperse the heat across the garage and seems to work as planned. The unit heats our 24’x24’ garage with ease. The only trouble I’ve had is that the unit self powers off when I run it in the high power mode. When the garage was nothing but open studs it could run continuously on high, but as soon as drywall went in it started shutting off by itself. I tried the low power setting and now it runs without a problem. I think on high the unit was heating the area too fast and the heater would sense it and shut off. Even if you want to use the wall thermostat you need to keep the remote control to power the unit on for the first time or if it shuts itself off for any reason. This is also how you set low/high power and set a timer on the device. Overall this is a great electric garage heater and would buy it again.

Don’t waste your money
Looked good out of the box and was easy to assemble and mount on the ceiling. Very small access to connect wiring slowed the installation process. The unit started and ran ok at first then cut off and error light flashing over heat. The clearances back and sides exceeded the minimum 12” and there were no objects near the heat, so it had an internal defect. Called the customer service number and left a message. The next day I ran the heater and now it worked fine for about an hour, then the same problem.... still no reply from customer service so I boxed it up and returned it. I went to a different store and found another brand, US made. It was more money even with the eleven per cent rebate but clearly a better product. Installed much easier and works perfectly.

Just bought it to take the chill out of my non insulated garage when I'm out there. Works great. Needed to get a 40 amp double pole bleaker and install it.

The heater was good to install however it had major wiring problems. The ground wire was short, the wiring compartment was not large enough for easy connections. The worst part of this project was the information that was left out. It was described as needing 220 volt power, no problem. What was left out was the need for a 40amp circuit at 220 volts. If I had known it required a 40amp circuit I would not have bought it.

Shuts off after 1 minute
Worthless. The unit shuts off after 1-2 minutes. I tried the low power setting to no avail. My garage was in the low 50's and the temp was set to 70. Every time this happens, you have to turn off the power, the breaker and wait 15 minutes. Clearly there is a faulty design with the internal temp/overheat sensor.
