Figure 2 – Connectors, cable, and hardware used to wire the UH-524TA

Locating the Heater
The heater should be installed out of traffic areas and at least 6′ off the floor. The direction of air flow should not be restricted (ie: by columns or machinery) and the air flow should wipe exposed walls, rather than blowing directly at them. When more than one heater is used in an area, the heaters should be arranged so that the air discharge of each heater supports the air flow of the others to provide best circulation of warm air, as indicated in Figure 3, below.

Figure 3

Mounting

  1. Remove the mounting bracket from the heating unit by loosening the bracket screws with a wrench and slipping the handle off over the screw heads.
  2. Locate a stud in the ceiling and attach the mounting bracket to the ceiling joist as shown in Figures 4-A or 4-B. Place a washer on the screw between the bracket and the ceiling to act as a spacer and screw them into the stud. Tighten the screws enough to securely hold the heating unit with the air flow pointed in the proper direction.
  3. Lift the heater up and into the mounting bracket. Align the screws on each side of the heater with the keyhole slots in the mounting brackets. If the heater is to be tilted, it must be positioned in the lower keyhole slots (see Figure 5). Tighten the bracket screws so the unit is securely suspended at the desired position.

Wiring

  1. To connect the power to the heater, simply remove the screw from the front of the unit. This allows the hinged bottom to open, providing access to the electrical wiring and connectors. (See Figure 5)
  2. Attach the cable connectors to the unit (See Figure 2) and slide the 8 or 10 gauge wire (see page 2) through the cable connector. Pull enough wire through the connector to work with when making the the connections.
    NOTE: Wiring compartment volume: 370 in3 (6063 cm3)
  3. Connect the wire to the power terminal block located in the base of the heater (See Figure 6).
    NOTE: Unit is 240/208 volts. When wiring a two conductor cable with ground the white wire must be marked black by adding a piece
    of black electrical tape to the wire near the point of connection.
    NOTE: To decrease the heat output of the heating unit, see Adjust the Heat Output, Table 2 and Wiring Diagrams Figure 7.

WARNING: TO PREVENT POSSIBLE ELECTRIC SHOCK, DISCONNECT POWER TO THE HEATER AT THE MAIN SERVICE BOX BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO ADJUST THE HEAT OUTPUT OF THIS UNIT.

Adjusting the Heat Output
Heat output can be increased or decreased by switching wires at the wattage change terminal board. The heater is factory wired at the maximum rated BTU per hour. Should your particular application require less heat output, refer to Table 2 below and change the wires at the wattage change terminal board as shown in Wiring Diagram Figure 7A or 7B.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Heater must be properly installed before operation.
  2. After heater is completely assembled, rotate thermostat knob counterclockwise until control stops. This is the minimum heat setting.
  3. Turn power supply to heater “ON” at main switch panel.
  4. Heater should not operate. If it operates disconnect power and recheck wiring.
  5. Rotate thermostat clockwise until it stops (maximum heat set-ting).
  6. Heater should turn on after a brief delay (see Automatic Fan Delay below). If heater and fan do not come on, disconnect power and check wiring.
    NOTE: The first time you operate the unit, it may smoke slightly. This is due to the residual cleaning agents used to clean the ele-ment when the heater is manufactured. This is normal and does not indicate a problem with the unit. This condition will stop after the heater has been in operation for a few minutes.
  7. Allow heater to continue to operate until room temperature reaches desired comfort level. Then rotate thermostat knob counterclockwise slowly until thermostat clicks off. (Note that the fan delay will keep the fan running until the elements cool.) Heater will cycle on and off to maintain room temperature.
  8. It may be necessary to readjust thermostat a time or so until exact comfort level is attained. Rotation in the clockwise direction will increase the amount of time the heater will pro-duce heat. Rotation in the counterclockwise direction will reduce the amount of time the heater is on.

Automatic Fan Delay: The FUH Series has an automatic fan delay. When the thermostat calls for heat, fan action is delayed momentarily until the heating elements warm. This prevents the circulation of cold air. When the heater raises the temperature of the room to the thermostat set point, the heating element is turned off but the fan will continue to run until the heating element cools down. This prevents exposing the unit to residual heat, provides a higher comfort level and prolonged element life.

Automatic Thermal Limit: FUH Series is equipped with a thermal limit which will automatically shut off the heater in the event of overheating. Should the thermal limit activate an alarm light will be visible on the front of the heater next to the thermo-stat knob. The heater will turn on when the operating temperature returns to normal. Should the unit overheat and activate the thermal limit, the cause of the overheating should be determined before further operation.

WARNING: DO NOT TAMPER WITH OR BYPASS ANY SAFETY LIMITS INSIDE HEATER.

CAUTION: CAUTION – DO NOT CONTINUE TO ATTEMPT TO USE THE HEATER IF THE THERMAL LIMIT REPEATEDLY OPERATES. TO DO SO COULD PERMANENTLY DAMAGE THE HEATER OR CREATE A FIRE OR SAFETY HAZARD.

NOTE: If the unit is installed in an area where the temperature is below 50° F, the fan may cycle on and off until the temperature in the room rises above 50° F, this is normal and does not indicate a problem with the unit. As soon as the heater warms the air in the room above 50°, the fan will operate continually until the thermostat has reached the room set point.

Adjusting Air Flow Direction
You can adjust the direction of air flow by:

  1. Turning the unit. If the unit has been installed with a single lag bolt, as shown in Figure 8, simply turn the entire unit as needed to adjust air flow.
  2. Tilting the unit. Loosen the bracket screws, tilt the heater to the desired position, and re-tighten the bracket screws (see Figure 4).
    NOTE: To tilt the heater it must be mounted in bottom key hole slots of mounting bracket to maintain adequate clearance and
    prevent possible overheating.
  3. Adjusting the louvers to the desired position.
    NOTE: The louvers are designed so they can not be completely closed. Do not attempt to defeat this feature, damage to the unit
    can result.
