Customer Question

I got a used Qmark heater muh0321 it's wired with 12/2 and a small 220 plug. Seams to work fine . but it doesn;t get very hot just warm air. I plugged it into my compressor outlet to try it. Should it have larger wire? and is the way it's wired have anything to do with how hot it gets? thanks, Dave

The wire size isn't your problem. I suggest testing the voltage with a 2 wire voltage tester. Let me know the reading for further consideration.
