Question about Dayton Electric Heater

Use Breaker for Switch?

I'm preparing to purchase a Dayton 3UG73, 5000 w electric heater. My electrician suggested hardwiring direct from the main electric panel with a new 30 amp circuit and using the breaker for the on/off switch. The heater will be only about 6 to 8 feet from the breaker. Does anyone see a problem with this arrangement? Are there any concerns to be aware of?

How to repair an Electric Water Heater that Fails to Heat Water


If your home has an electric water heater that is not working properly, start your troubleshooting here When an electric water heater fails to heat water, either the power to the water heater has been interrupted or there is a problem with the controls or heating elements. Perform these diagnostics:

1) Be sure electricity is being delivered to the appliance. Check the main switch on the water heater and the circuit breaker (or fuse) that serves the water heater. If the circuit breaker has tripped, reset it by flipping it all the way to OFF and then back to ON.
If a fuse has blown, replace it with a new fuse with the same rating. If the circuit breaker or fuse repeatedly blows out, call a qualified electrician to check and repair the circuit. Note that the water heater should not share a circuit with another appliance—it draws too much power when heating.
2) Check the high-temperature cutoff in the water heater. Open the panel and push the reset button. If the button doesn’t make a clicking sound or you still don’t have power after pressing it, then your high-temperature cutoff is probably bad. Call an electric water heater repairperson.
3) If there is any water inside the compartment, this could cause the thermostat to malfunction. Leaking water means that your water heater may need to be replaced. If this is the case, be sure to read the “Storage Water Heater Buying Guide” and related buying guide articles before making your purchase.
If these steps don’t solve the problem, you may have a problem with your heating elements. You can replace these yourself following the manufacturer’s instructions if you feel comfortable with this type of repair, or call a water heater service professional.

I need the the 3 button switch on a dayton model 2E440A electic wall heater. 220 volt. ark-less switch 9334 NC where can I purchase this switch


Hi, what you are going to have to do, is remove the switch, mark the wiring so you know where to terminate and take the switch to a local appliance parts house. write down and take the unit model and serial #'s down also as they may have to match it with an aftermarket type normally closed switch that's if they can't find the OEM switch. Sometimes, you can get away with going to a air conditioning wholesale only parts store and you can pay cash for the exact replacement. But yes, it will have to be a parts house that deals with this equip. I hope this has given you some direction as to you're question. Sincerely,
Shastalaker7

I've got a Dayton 3E369 Unit heater. The electric


Sounds like it has a bad fan switch wich is no more than a small circular bi-metal switch that expands when heated closing a switch. Get a parts breakdown off the net. I am sure you could find the switch in your area and replace it yourself.

Curcuit breaker pops


hello elanalex,
When your heater shuts off it trips your main breaker and that is usually associated with the interupt capacity of the breaker ( which means that while your heater is drawing current, if the thermostat says stop.. you are interupting that current demand abruptly and your getting a surge back to your breaker, You may be able to add a surge arrestor to that power feed to suppress that problem. You may also be able to repsecify your main breaker with one that has a higher interupt capacity.. Check with a local electrical supply house..explain the problem and they should be able to provide a hardware solution. Make sure you provide details on your circuit breaker brand so they can provide the proper solution.. GoodLuck
Regards,
Rick
