Dayton 2yu62 doesn't work at all

I have two Dayton 2yu62 heaters and neither one works. Checked and confirmed that there is power at all connections when thermostat is on. Checked overheat switch. No problems there. Thermostats are working but nothing comes on. No reset switch. HELP!!!

    Will check the heating elements tomorrow morning. I don't this heating elements are the problems as the fans do not work either.

    Thanks for your help. Found the problems with the wiring between the breaker box and the heating units. One of the line wires had enough connection to show voltage but not enough connection to allow enough current to run the heaters (impedence too high). Don't you just love it when the building wiring diagram doesn't match with what is actually wired. Someone added another heater in the upstairs office and tapped into the wiring to the commercial heating units. Is fixed now. Again, thanks for you help.

Need to check heating elements and replace if necessary. If your checks are complete that is the answer I think.I suggest reviewing your findings. The heating elements rarely go bad.

    Using jumpers, send power directly to the heaters and or fans. If they work then you missed reporting a control device. Usually heaters have a thermal fuse in addition to an "overheat switch". Be sure youir jumpers bypass this protector. The fans come on with the thermostat.

Dayton (3E133) hooked up wont work at all

The 3E133 (or similar) Infra-Red Heater with correct voltage to the circuit board should produce a spark at the spark ignitor rod within a few seconds of having power applied. If it doesn't, one of the following could be the problem: (1. circuit board (ignition controller) is bad. (2. The gap between the spark ignitor rod and the middle rod (ground) is incorrect. It should be between 1/8" & 3/16". (3. There is not a good ground. This could be due to rust or a loose connection at any point between the equipment ground and the spark ignitor rod, including the ignitor mounting screws. (4. The spark ignitor rod or its orange wire is grounded, such as touching metal and thus "short circuiting" rather than allowing the spark ignitor rod to be 1/8" from "ground".
That's all I can think of that would cause NOTHING to happen.

What type of thermostat do i need to hook up to a 2yu62 heater

don't know about the heater to much but you can get range of t/stats and a majority can be wired into different types of heater firstly i'd get a sparky to come and see if he can wire a universal t/stat into your heater.

Flames burn then die down

it sounds like you may have a dirty pilot tube or a weak pressure regulator. I would try blowing out the pilot tube to make sure it is clear and if that does not work then replace the regulator.
