I just purchased a dayton g73 electric heater for my garage. I wired it with a 30 amp circut breaker, 10 guage 3 wire. I used the black and the red wires for the power or hot wires and I grounded the ground wire. My question is where do I put the white wire, there doesn't seem to be a place in the heater for this wire?. Do I need this wire?. The heater works, but doesn't seem to get very hot, any suggestions?

If this heater is only 240 volts you do not need a neutral. You can just cap the white wire at both ends.

make sure the heater is actually 240 volt...a previous poster had a 277 volt heater that was being starved and as a result had a lack of heat
