The power draw would be the same as 15 100 watt light bulbs all on at the same time! If this is on a circuit with anything else (ex; vending machine with cooler. )drawing over 7.5 amps it will trip the circuit breaker! does'nt matter if comercial or home! 120 volt receptacle would be on 20 amp breaker. And as for last question... I know there is a thermostat on front, so as long as thats set right, there should be no reason to fear a fire, if in safe location! John

If you turn the power off the heater still increases heat to 80?

what does the screw look like?

If this is an electric resistance heater then there is no power supply or transformer. I had a baseboard heater that would hum loudly and I found there's a wire that runs along the bottom to connect the far end of the heat element to the electrical wiring at the supply end. This wire becomes magnetized from the current flowing through it and vibrates in the channel it runs through. I was able to open this channel and squirt a bit of silicone caulk in to keep the wire from vibrating and the hum is gone.

On a Honeywell thermostat the flashing means that the system is in a delay to turn on the compressor. This is used to protect the compressor from coming on and off too often. The normal delay is about 5 minutes. After that the system should come on. If not there is s problem.

In order to help us help you we will need a little more information. What happens either at the inside unit or at the outside unit after the thermostat stops flashing "Cool"? Any fans come on? Do you hear a "KLUNK"? Any sparks? Please let us know so we can help.
