Hi i have a wireless room thermostat i wish to fit to my potterton boiler can anyone advise me thanks


in general-
wireless thermo has 2 units - room thermo and furnace rcvr.
if thermo is battery powered no wires to connect - if not needs 24V connected - then why do they call it wireless?
rcvr connects to same 4 wires as current therm except at the furnace - 24v power and 2 control lines
I can't remember the color code except red/black is +24v/common
but I have found them messed up by "professional" installers so u need to verify before connecting or go by the terminal labeling.

What is a requarement for motor, do we need it to be bonding ?


Motor must be grounded with ground wire.
Some local codes require outdoor motor shell to be bonded, with a ground rod driven into ground and ground wire attached... in addition to ground wire back to panel.
Never hurts to bond outdoor electrical devices.

http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-Tankless-electric-water-heater.html

How did you test for 240?
How is the unit wired?
Which brand and type water heater do you have?
What product are you hooking up to 240V?
What does product label show?
Is this electric tank-type water heater, or electric tankless?
Is the water heater new? Or older heater?
Have you pressed in reset button on tank-type?

Add a comment for followup.

What size wire and how does it hook to thr unit rpkb-036jaz


Look at rating plate on side of unit for Volts, Amps, Watts.
Volts x amps = watts.
If unit is 240Volts, then you need double-pole 240Volt breaker
If unit is 8500 watts at max power, then 8500 watts divided by 240Volts = 35 amps.

What size breaker for 35 amps?
When electricians figure load rating for breakers, they use the 80% rule.
40 amp breaker x 80% = 32 amp safe maximum load for 40 amp breaker. Use 8 gauge wire with 40 amp breaker.
50 amp breaker x 80% = 40 amp safe maximum for 50 amp breaker. I use 6 gauge wire with 50 amp breaker.
60 amp breaker x 80% = 48 amp safe maximum for 60 amp breaker. Again, use 6 gauge wire with 60 amp breaker.

How to connect wires to unit.
First of all, all outdoor HVAC units require power cut off located next to unit.
This lets the mechanic, or service tech turn power off to work on unit, even if the mechanic does not have access to main breaker box.

Next, open unit to see where wires connect.
If unit has wires, then connect both hot wires from 240 breaker to the wires inside unit. Connect bare ground wire to green ground screw.
If unit has terminals. The terminals will be labeled L1 L2. Connect each hot wire from 240Volt breaker to either one of the screw terminals. Then bare ground goes to green ground screw.

Copy following links for basic illustrations connecting wires to terminals, and to breakers, and selecting wire size.

Wiring an electric water heater


Hello,You are correct! Black/blue=black & Yellow=white 220volt single phase power.There are 3 wires for 3 phase power connection NOT the case in a home.Also an "off peak"timer option would use (black) only controlling the bottom element and (blue) controlling the top element.

Furnace locks out because of twinning polarity


Usually a polarity problem is fixed by reversing the wires that run to the power supply to the unit.First, shut off the breaker that feeds power to the furnace. Most of the time, there will be one black, and one white Unhook those, switch the wires around, use new wire nuts to wire them back together. Hope this helps.

Furnace filter is black and sooty wall seem to be sooty


   By sealed unit you mean that the burner air comes from outside of the house?      You have checked the heat exchanger for cracks by removing the burners and looking with a mirror and flashlight, correct, or had a service tech so?
The furnace burners have enough air and are burning clean (blue) with just a tip of orange at the end? You bought the house new and the fireplace has never been used?  If it has been used to clean smoke for the house for whatwever reason I woudl start by havign the ducts cleaned.   Another possibility I have seen is insolation inside of ductwork breaking down.
