Need help with baseboard heaters

Posted by textilejo (My Page) on

I'm at my wits end trying to remove the cover from my baseboard heaters. I need to vaccum the fins and I can't get the cover off. I've pull and banged and I'm ready to take out the sledge hammer!

Any sites I've looked at online say to take off the end caps and pop off the cover. My heaters do not have end covers to pop off!

Do I have to take the whole unit off the wall just to clean the fins?

What brand and model?

Perhaps you can call manufacturer for instructions.

Or a local dealer for help.
