Question about Dayton G73 Utility Heater
I bought a used Dayton 60 HZ. When I switch it on, the fan takes about 3 minutes before it kicks on then only luke warm air comes out. Additionally, the fan kicks on and off about every 3 minutes. The heating coils never turn red nor does the unit stay running continuously. My electrician bypassed the thermostat and switch and it still does the same thing. Is this unit worth fixing and are there parts still available for this model? My garage is about 600 square feet so I'm not even sure if this unit is large enough to heat the garage. I'm not looking for a unit to heat it past 70 degrees, just something to take the chill out of the garage. Any constructive advice would be appreciated as I'm trying to save a buck. Thanks! John
These heaters are the same as the marley heater, the element never gets red hot. the unit is set up so the fan kicks on after the element has heated to a certain temp and turns off after the element has cooled. It is common for these heater fans to cycle on and off quite often untill the air temp reaches about 55 degrees and then will operate normaly. If the fan still cycles too often you may have to replace the fan control and high limit switch. These are not very expensive and easy to replace yourself. they arte usualy attached to the back of the element with clips. The luke warm air is what these units put out. I have an equivelent to the dayton G73 and it heats a 24' X 30' garrage all winter in central Minnesota.
