I’m having an issue with a 10,000w heater I purchased at Princess Auto and installed in my garage. After wiring it up, all it does is make a loud (grinding?) noise and the fan doesn’t turn.
I can turn the fan blade freely so that doesn’t appear to be the problem. I’m basically thinking I either wired it incorrectly or the heater is defective. I hooked it up for 3 phase connection as per the instructions in the manual (page 9 , 10)
I wired it up as per the instructions… first I set it up for 3 phase by moving the red and blue wires from L1 & L3 on the power terminal station over to L2. Then I connected the 10 gauge wire in the following manner to the heater. Red to L1, Black to L2, White to L3 and ground to the green screw.
On the breaker, red and black are connected to the 40 amp 2 pole breaker, and white and ground to the respective bars.
Does this all look correct? If so, then i’ll chalk it up to a defective heater. But before I do, i’d just like confirmation on the wiring.
