We have a bedroom in attic that we seldom use. But with holiday houseguests it is getting use. But, the electric baseboard heater is not working.
We have fuse panels. This particular room's heating is not identified, but perhaps it shares a circuit with another heater? Anyway, I removed all fuses and checked each one. No bad fuses.
The heater is controlled by a wall thermostat - It has white and black wires coming to it - The thermostat breaks the white wire only, the black wire really just passes through. I checked voltages - nothing across the white & black on either side of the thermostat. But from either black or white to ground (the box), I get 110v. Just is case, I changed out the thermostat for a spare, but no change.
At heater, it is the same - no voltage between the incoming wires, but 110v to ground from either side.
Questions: - If I see 110v to ground from black & white, why don't I see 220V across these conductors? - If I see the 110v to ground, does that mean that I do have power to the heater?
Any suggestions as to how to further troubleshoot this problem?
