PLANNING

This heater is intended to be used to supply supplemental heat from a wall location in new or existing construction.
Choose a location where edge of heater will be at least 12” from the floor or any adjacent vertical surface.
The heater can be operated using its built-in thermostat or a remote thermostat (such as the Model 86W Line-Voltage thermostat or an appropriate low-voltage thermostat and transformer/relay). The Model 85 Kit is available for surface-mount applications. Purchase these accessories separately.
Plan to supply the heater with proper line voltage and appropriate power cable.
NOTE: Power can be tapped from a nearby circuit depending on the heater wattage required and the amperage rating of the circuit.
Heater can be converted to half-wattage to avoid overloading such circuits.

Attach housing to wall studs
NAIL HERE – BOTH SIDES, MEASURING GUIDES

2. Attach housing to wall studs.
NOTE: Locate housing at least 12” from floor on any adjacent walls.
Use the measuring guides on the sides of housing to position housing so that it will be flush with finished wall. Nail the housing to studs through the hole and slot on both sides of housing.
NOTE: In 24”-on-center stud construction, framing in between studs is necessary.

WIRING

Installation work and electrical wiring must be done by a qualified person(s) in accordance with all applicable codes and standards, including fire-rated construction codes and standards.

  1. Connect power cable to housing. Attach electrical power cable to housing using appropriate
    connector. Allow 6” of wire inside housing.
  2. Wire the heater assembly. Connect wires from heater assembly to power cable wires. Follow wiring diagram.
    If heater is wired direct, use the builtin thermostat for temperature control.

Wire the heater assembly

LINE-VOLTAGE THERMOSTAT

OPTIONAL WIRING CONVERSIONS

When using a separate wall control, simply turn the heater’s built-in thermostat to its highest setting. There is no need to disconnect the built-in thermostat:
a) Turn built-in thermostat to highest setting.
b) Remove knob.
c) Fasten security cover to grille.

LINE-VOLTAGE THERMOSTAT

FACTORY-WIREDHEATER

If wall-mounted control is desired, use the Model 86W Line-Voltage Thermostat. Purchase thermostat separately.
Cut blue wire. Strip ½” of insulation from each end. Connect wires from wall control to each stripped wire.
If wall-mounted control is desired, use a transformer/relay with an appropriate low-voltage
thermostat (purchase separately). Follow the mounting and wiring instructions packed with the controls.

HALF-WATTAGE CONVERSION

HALF-WATTAGE CONVERSION
REMOVE THIS JUMPER WIRE, TOP / FRONT OF HEATER, HEATER CONVERTED TO HALF-WATTAGE

The heater will produce less heat and use less electricity if converted to half-wattage. Remove the black jumper wire from the heating element and discard wire.

COMPLETE THE INSTALLATION

  1. Install housing mask. A housing mask has been provided to keep construction dust, drywall spray, paint, etc., from damaging the heater. Bend the flap on the mask and push it into the heater housing.
    NOTE: Mask can be put into place before or after heater assembly is reinstalled. Remove mask before operation.
  2. Reinstall heater assembly. Secure heater assembly to housing with four (4) screws. Check
    thermal overload button marked “RESET”. Heater will not operate unless this button is depressed.

Reinstall heater assembly

3. Install grille. Place grille over heater and attach with four (4) screws. Push knob onto thermostat stem.
4. Attach security cover to grille (optional). When heater is installed in a public area without a separate wall control, it is recommended that:
a) Built-in thermostat be set to desired temperature level.
b) Thermostat knob be removed.
c) Security cover be attached to grille with two (2) screws, provided.
5. Check operation. Turn on power at service entrance. Turn thermostat to its highest setting and make sure heating element and blower come on. Then turn it to its lowest setting and make sure element and blower shut off.
NOTE: The fan delay prevents the fan from coming on until the element is hot. Likewise, it keeps the fan running until the element cools down.

OPERATION

Before using heater, make sure heater has been properly installed according to installation steps under “INSTALLATION” on page 3.
The heater can be operated using its built-in thermostat or a remote thermostat (such as the Model 86W Line-Voltage thermostat or an appropriate low-voltage thermostat and transformer/relay). The Model 85 Kit is available for surface-mount applications. Purchase these accessories separately.

THERMAL OVERLOAD PROTECTOR

Your heater is equipped with a manual-reset thermal overload protector. If heater fails to operate
when thermostat is turned to its highest setting:
1) Turn off power at service entrance.
2) Remove knob and grille.
3) Press button marked “RESET”.
This type of device is particularly useful (compared to automatic reset devices) because it encourages the user to find and correct the cause of overheating unit when resetting the protector.

TO AVOID PROPERTY DAMAGE WHEN USING THIS HEATER TO PREVENT FREEZE-UPS:

Make sure heater functions properly before leaving unattended. A tripped protector will prevent the heater from operating.
