the air discharge may be blocked
in any manner.
6.
A heater has hot and arcing or
sparking parts inside. Do not use
it in areas where gasoline, paint,
or flammable vapors or liquids are
used or stored.
7.Connect grounding lead to grounding wire provided. Keep all foreign
objects out of heater.
8.
CAUTION – High temperature,
risk of fire, keep electrical cords,
drapery, furnishings, and other
combustibles at least 3 feet (0.9
m) from the front of the heater and
away from the side.
KNOW YOUR VOLTAGE!
If you are uncomfortable working with electricity, running electrical supply
wire or installing a circuit breaker, please consult a licensed electrician.
• Make sure the heater is the same voltage as the electrical supply wires you’re
using. The wire size must be correct for the voltage, the heater wattage and
the circuit breaker.
240 volt
120 volt
• CHECK YOUR BREAKER! If you’re replacing an existing heater, check the
labels of the old heater and use the same voltage.
double-pole breaker
single-pole breaker
• Connecting a 120 volt heater to a 240 volt electrical supply will destroy the
heater and void your warranty! Connecting a 240 volt heater to a 120 volt
electrical supply will only give you one quarter of the heat output.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
TIPS BEFORE YOU BEGIN
• Verify power has been turned off before starting any work!
• The Register model RM can only be mounted with the element up. It cannot be mounted in the
ceiling. For multiple heater wiring, see page 6.
• For cleaner performance and longer heater life, install your heater 12 inches from the floor.
• All models can be installed to be Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant. Check your
state and local requirements.
• A thermostat is required for all models. An electronic wall thermostat is recommended for ultimate
comfort and energy savings.
• The wall can label arrow shows the correct mounting orientation (arrow must point up).
STEP 1 Cut a hole in the wall next to a wall stud
If you haven’t installed drywall yet, skip this step.

STEP 2 Locate or route electrical supply wires
Route the electrical supply wire from the circuit breaker to the wall thermostat, and then to the heater
location.
Remove a knockout from the wall can and attach the supply wire with a cable clamp connector (not
included) leaving a minimum of 6 inches wire lead (See Figure 2).
STEP 3 Mount the wall can
If you haven’t installed drywall yet, make sure the front of the wall can extends beyond the front edge
of the wall stud to match the drywall depth (Figure 2).
If you already have drywall installed, rotate the wall can into the cutout legs first. Keep the front of the
wall can flush with the drywall.
Fasten the wall can to a stud (on either left or right side), with two screws (not included) through the
larger holes provided in the wall can (Figure 2).
tip: if not installing at minimum height, for additional support in new construction, legs can bend 90
degrees on the wall can (see Figure 2).

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
INSERT THE HEATER ASSEMBLY IN THE WALL CAN
STEP 4 Wire connections
Your heater has two connection wires and the wall can has a green grounding wire. Your supply wire
has two connection wires and a supply ground wire.
1. Connect supply ground wire to green grounding wire in wall can (See Figure 3).
2. Connect one of the supply wires to one of your heater wires with a wire connector (not included):
A. for 240 volts, it doesn’t matter which heater wire (Figure 3);
B. for 120 volts, connect the neutral (white) supply wire to the white heater wire (Figure 3).
3. Connect the remaining supply wire to the remaining heater wire with a wire connector (not
included) (See Figure 3).

caught between the heater assembly
and the wall can.
6. Attach the heater assembly at top of
the wall can with screw provided.

STEP 5 Install grill
Attach grill with the screws provided.
tip: hand tighten both screws first before securing. The open part of the grill goes on the bottom.
Turn power on at the main disconnect panel. Proceed to OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS.
HOW TO CHANGE THE WATTAGE
Multi-watt models RM162, RM168 and RM151 only
Multi-watt RM models offer a variety of heat output options. They are factory set to maximum wattage
(Figure 4). If you have a multi-watt model, you can change the heating element wire connections to a
lower wattage on the right hand side of the heater assembly (See Figures 5 and 6).

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
MULTIPLE HEATERS WITH ONE THERMOSTAT
More than one heater can be wired in parallel on the same circuit breaker (be sure to check
national and local codes for safety requirements). Additional electrical supply wire and cable clamp
connectors are required, and you’ll need to use a wall thermostat. When wiring multiple heaters to
one thermostat, the heaters must be in the same room and be spaced a minimum of three feet apart.
The maximum amperage load you can put on one circuit breaker is limited to either 80% of the circuit
breaker capacity, or the maximum amperage rating of the thermostat, whichever is lower.

1. Route the electrical supply wire from the circuit breaker to the wall thermostat. At the wall can of
heater #1, remove two knockouts and attach two sets of electrical supply wires with two cable
clamp connectors (not included) leaving a minimum of 6 inches wire lead. One set of electrical
supply wire goes to the wall thermostat and the other set goes to heater #2 (See Figure 8).
2. There are two supply ground wires in the wall can of heater #1 (See Figure 7). Connect the green
ground wire in the wall can of heater #1 to each of the ground wires from each set of the supply
wires (See Figure 7).
3. For heater #1, connect each heater wire to one of the supply wires going to the thermostat, and
one of the supply wires going to the heater #2. Each of the wires from heater #1 must have a
3-wire connection.
4. For heater #2, make the connections in the wall can as shown in Figure 8 above.
5. Turn power back on at the main disconnect panel.
6. Proceed to OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS.

2. Do not operate without grill.
How to operate your heater
The room temperature is controlled by a thermostat located either on the wall, or on the heater.
Once installation is complete and power has been restored, follow the steps below for your
thermostat.
If you have a wall or built-in thermostat:
1. Turn the thermostat knob all the way to the right.
2. When the room reaches your comfort level, turn the knob to the left, just until it clicks and
the heater turns off. The heater will automatically keep the room temperature around this setting.
3. To reduce the room temperature, turn the knob to the left. To increase the room
temperature, turn the knob to the right.
If you have an electronic wall thermostat, follow the instructions in the programming and operating
guide included with your thermostat.
PLEASE NOTE: On initial start-up, the heater may cause an odor due to the manufacturing
process. It typically goes away within several hours.
