Anyone have an idea what this thing is?

Found this on an inspection today. I have no idea what is it. There is a piece of asbestos fiber board behind the big metal plate… And of course, I don’t have great photos of the whole thing.
The pink/beige part looks like it use to have a dial and those wires lead to a junction box which then go to the big metal plate.

Thanks. Kaitlan

Chromalox is a manufacturer of heaters/immersion heaters.

Can’t find exact product in a catalog.
But if you ever need help identifying get the numbers off the product and ask Google. It’s what I do.
Anything I can do to help educate. Myself included.

What was directly on the other side/inside of what you took a pic of in your 3rd pic? a wall heater?


Wild stab that the beige box is a timer/controller for some device that was maybe mounted where that galvanized plate is. Hard to tell.

Thank you for the reply. No there was not, but it makes sense that once there was some sort of heater…

Thank you. I am going to run with your guess on this one…

Now that I look at my photos, that is what I should have done and will try to in the future. Thanks!

Kaitlan, you can recommend your client ask the homeowner, if you want to.
