This is probably a very simple question but I'm a total greenhorn to
home repair (although learning quickly). Anyhow my house has forced
hot water heat via baseboard heaters. One of the heaters it much
longer than the actual pipe it. My goal is to slide the back to the
left about 6 inches because the right side of the heater prevents me
from opening the door to a cabinet I just installed. However there's
plenty of room from the pipe/heating element. If I could slide the
back part of the heater to the left abot 6 inches everything would be
great. I took the cover off and there were two screws seemingly
holding the back on. I took the screws out but the darn thing won't
budge. I can't figure out what's holding it toghether and I don't
want to damage the heating element by trying to pry the thing off the
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I also lack the correct
terminology which I do appologize about. What are the correct terms?
There's the housing, the heating element etc. Am I missing anything?
yeah that's the puzzling part (about the cover not the hvac loser). I
the front piece off as well as the top piece so that only the back
plate remains. There seemingly were two screws attaching it to the
wall but when I took them out the damn thing still wouldn't budge. I
imagine there are some screws behind the heating element. Not sure
how I'll get to those. I might end up just cutting the excess
housing. There is easily 6 inches of housing past the left side of
the heating element/pipe.
