Venting a Dayton 4E454 24,000 BTU gas furnace

I bought a used Dayton 4E454 gas overhead furnace. It is a powered vent type witha approx. 3 to 4" squirell cage fan in line with the 6" discharge for the vent pipe. There is a label on this fan housing that says "Do not use a Class B double wall vent with a power vented heater". What type of venting do I use? Thanks!

    Yes - it is for a residential garage.

If you intend to use this in a residential garage, you will have to use standard galvanized round pipe coming off the unit, 24 gauge will suffice, use a minimum of 6”-8” from the unit. From there you will have to make the transition to the B-Vent. Always double check with you local codes in your area.

Hope this helps.

Size of the exhaust vent pipe on a 75 gallon gas water heater? Is it the same size as on a 50 gallon water heater. Brand is GE, mfg 2008


I believe it takes 4" vent pipe up to 100,000 BTU
BTUs are shown on label side of tank.

Does new water heater have power vent? What does manual say?
Are you experiencing vent problem now? When you light a match and put it under vent stack, does smoke immediately get pulled upward? Are furnace and waster heater connected to same venting. Is there dark exhaust stain around vent hood? Does exhaust vent back out of vent hood when furnace kicks on? Are flue pipes stained with rust and white coating? Are vent pipes vertical, or are there level runs? Are the pipes made of galvanized and screwed together with 3 screws at each joint?

Frankly I would double-triple-check any internet answer dealing with possible CO poisoning at your home.
1) Ask local plumber for specific code in your area.
2) Call gas company
3) Post question on pro water heater forum:
http://www.thetankatwaterheaterrescue.com/forums/forum3/
4) Read whole manual for new water heater before buying.
5) Contact manufacturer.

Add a comment with your experience so others with same-similar problem can benefit.

How many BYU is a Lennox G40UH (x) series furnace? And can it be vented with PVC? Thanks alot!


The Btu rating for this furnace is 40,000. Since the furnace has a 3 /34" metal flue collar on the top of the unit, you can not use PVC pipe to vent it. Only 90+ efficient gas furnaces can use PVC pipe for venting and the also come equipped with a condensation pump, which yours doesn't.

For more information on your furnace and how it's to be safely installed and vented, here is a link to the installation manual http://www.greenwoodheating.com/products/manuals/gasfurnaces/G40UH.pdf that you can download and print.

Hope this helped answer your questions?

I was wondering if the Dayton fuel trimmer model# 3E369B can be placed on blocks in the floor of my garage


Hi,
Yes, it can be set on concrete blocks or anything non-flammable.
Also make sure that you do not run it if you are working with flammable gases or materials. I don't believe that that heater is sealed combustion.
Make sure also that you have correct venting so you don't wake up dead...
If you can take good precaution then go for it...

Have a dayton gas furnace #3E463A spoke to hiltonjug last week. purchased new air sensing switch and new gas valve. just installed new air switch and green light is not coming on on control box????


Is the pressure switch tubing installed correctly???...no holes in it???....and the furnace ventor motor is running????turn off the power and wait a couple seconds...turn the power back on with a call for heat and observe...the ventor(exhaust fan) should start running/....the pressure it causes closes the pressure switch and should power the 24v circuit to the circuit board turning the green light on....if not....check your vent outside....it could be plugged...this will also not allow the switch to close ....clean the vent etc....if the vent is clear and ventor running....ensure that the pressurw switch is actually closed...voltage test....and if it is then that wasn't your problem....need more info really

We have a dayton gas furnace model #3E463A. thought the control box was gone. got new one we furnace starts up the power goes on, fan starts no green pulsing light on control no ignition


When your furnace starts...the Ventor motor(exhaust fan) starts up....within a short time (seconds) the Pressure switch closes proving that the Fan is indeed running and the vent is not blocked...if this doesnt happen the furnace will not poweer the ignitor or fire at all....Check the vent pipe outside and look for obstructions or dirt on the screen inside the pipe...the condensate from the fuirnace may not be draining at all...due to plugged condensate drain lines...find this tube coming out of the furnace front...bottom of upper compartment usually , and pull it off the tap....if water starts coming out then your drain is plugged downstream of the furnace.

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.
