Question about Dayton G73 Utility Heater

Thermostat (?) in utility heater

I have an Air Tech utility heater (translation: cheap) that isn't heating or blowing air, though the power indicator light comes on. Is there a thermostat in these types of heaters, and if so, can it be replaced or repaired? I am thinking that may be the problem, though I am a novice at such things. I just don't want to keep replacing these heaters and contributing yet another heater to the landfill. Goodwill doesn't want them if they don't work! Thanks. and Brrrrrr.... chill55@peoplepc.com

Honeywell thermostat blows cold air on heat


Thermostats don't actually blow anything, the heating system might though. Check the breakers for your heat system, then call a heating specialist. They're really not that expensive.

Heater blows cold air in 98 s10 blazer


Pull thermostat out and check to see if it is stuck open. If it isn't, put thermostat in a pot of water and heat to boiling. If thermostat opens before boiling it is fine. Reinstall thermost or replace it.

Doesn't seem to heat up as well as expected. I did have to change the outlet for the heaters plug. can run for hours and still be able to tough heater grates.


If this is an old unit you can try cleaning it with compressed air and a blow gun, blowing air forward and backwards thru the ceramic until it is clean. Please do this only when it is off and unplugged. If it is new I would return it these from Dayton are not cheap.

My honeywell heater thermostat is only blowing cold air, there is no heat blowing regardless of setting. how can i fix it? it won't even turn off.


the wiring for thermostats are color coded. R(red)power, Y(yellow)cooling, G(green)common, W(white)heating. O(orange), E(emergency)heat. Make sure that you have the right thermostat because there is an air condition thermostat and there is a heatpump thermostat and they wire up differently.

Heater will not blow warm air, only blows cool air even when the engine is warmed up


Sounds like the thermostat is jammed, I would replace it anyhow for how much it will cost, or possibly the heater matrix, thats the small radiator inside the car behind the dash that takes the hot water in and the fan then blows the heat through the vents, this may be blocked doubtful though more likely the thermostat be careful driving the car in case it overheats and blows the gasket.

It could just be air locked, meaning if you have topped the water up lately or put anti freeze in it it has pulled some air in the water system, much like your house heating you will have to bleed it.

No interior heat until I start to drive


You most likely have an "AIR LOCK" within the Heater Core. This requires one to pressurize the Cooling System and loosen the heater hose at the HIGHEST POINT and bleed the Air out of the Heater Core. I am not familiar with the Nissan but have encountered this problem numerous times over the years. Most late model vehicles are equipped with Air Bleed devices which must be utilized any time coolant is drained and refilled.

Most all reputable Auto Parts stores sell and/or rent a pump that temporarily replaces the Pressure Cap that may be utilized to pressurize the system for this purpose. If you don't feel capable of performing the bleeding operation take your vehicle to an ASE Certified Mechanic and have it done correctly.

Edgestar 12,000 portale air conditioner and heater


There are 3 possibilities beginning with the most likely problem

1) If your heater heats up for a few minutes and then quits, chances are there is a blockage in the air flow, check for dust and grime blocking the air intake coarse filter , airgun blow to clear accumulated dust and otherwise clean the coarse filter .
2) If the heater fan blows but there is no warm air, the heating element needs renewal ( this happens very rarely)
3)If the fan stalls and the heater heats up and the thermostat kicks in, then this will be not be a DIY job. This is least likely as you said the air cooler works.
