I have a electric baseboard heater in my bathroom which does not work.
I just bought this house, so no idea if it ever did. I opened up the
thermostat and checked to see if the thermostat received any power at
all. It seems there is no electricity flowing to the thermostat
connection and hence the electric baseboard. ( Iused a electric bulb
set to complete the circuit )
Since the wires are behind the wall, is there any way to check where
the fault might be? All other lights etc in the bathroom work fine.
I don't see that anything has tripped.
The electric baseboard heaters I've worked on have used line voltage
thermostats to break the power to one side of the filament heater. That
would be 220 volts.

the comments by the so called "Pros." Not only are many of them vulgar
and go out of their way to ridicule a valid question, but some actually
try to cause damage to the writer's property. Although my comment may
not have been helpful or even apply, at least I did not purposely try to

Anyone who actually takes the time to read the newsgroup, it's posting and
answers, would learn quickly that those who pose questions are opening
themselves up to being the "entertainment" for the day.
Actually God is more of an S & M type. He put us here on Earth for his
entertainment, [as cruel as it may seem.] That's why we have full
unabridged will. I'm sure he's sitting whereever he / she sits laughing at
us everyday! And loving every minute of it.
