Yes, tripping a breaker is always a crowd pleaser.  ;)

I'm going to wire up a test lead and try it in a shop outlet.  I'll post back if I'm still alive.

So sorry to all of you who put your money on my demise, lol.

 

Cut the wire, creating two ends, attached the hot leads of a piece of romex to them, stuck the other end of the romex hot leads into the hots of a 220 outlet.  It made heat, like heaters do,  :)

probably how it is terminated...

 

In your original post it sounded like there was only a terminal on ONE end... if there is one on each end and the wire connects the two as a loop yes you split that wire and wire each end to a 220v leg... it's a Resistance heater much like a Hot water heater element...

 

Then you just need a 220v thermostat.....

 

Sorry for the confusion....

Not really sure why anyone was worried, the worst that could have happened was a circuit breaker tripped.


Electric things don't just burst into flames and they wont shock you unless you're touching bare metal. Its science not magic.


Common sense goes a long way, I'm glad you fixed it yourself and didn't resort to calling a 'professional'. :P

If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day

:yes:

Ha ha, lots of drama in this thread, lol.  I didn't know how to wire this particular unit but I'm not exactly a n00b, I wired my house and shop among other things.  I usually just bring in a pro to double check my work at the entrance panel. 

 

Sorry I couldn't have made it more exciting.  :D

Try plugging a 120v heater into 220 sometime. Its a good light show. :lol:

Well that falls under common sense doesn't it?  :tongue: 

Then again as they say, common sense isn't common.

Every house over 40 years old is full of 40 plus year old parts.

 

I trust you'll ignore the obvious opportunity to make a joke about my age.  :D
