SOURCE: I have a Dayton gas heater Model 3E225

Does the main blower fan kick on? Also, if the heater is vented outside via a flue pipe, there may be a small (about 3 or 4 inches in diameter) vent fan that kicks on to ensure the exhaust fumes are evacuated through the flue pipe. If there's a problem with that fan, the burner won't light either.

The Dayton brand belongs to WWGrainger if the parts are available that would be the only place.

I have a Dayton hanging gas (propane) heater 3E838 series 1067A model z21116 when the heater ignites its like to much gas and blow out the side vents ????


sounds like the air to gas setting is wrong, not enough air intake. there should be an air adjuster near the burn box. where the gas goes into the burn box. fallow the gas line to find it. adjust it till it burns correct. there also should be a gas pressure adjuster to, it should be near the burner.

I have a 100,000 btu reddy heater, and every time I turn it on, it runs for about 5 minutes, then stops, then I have to push the reset button and start it again. Can you tell me where to start? thanx


If it actually ignites and burns but shuts off either the flame sensor is bad (or dirty) or the control is bad. I would verify the flame sensor is clean and had good electrical connections to the controller for starters.

150,000 BTU propane Reddy Heater shuts off after ignition


Is there a frost line on your LP tank, if so you may need to replace the tank with a larger tank or refill your tank. This can happen if the tank your using is too low or too small (use 100 lb tank or greater). If there is no frost line it may be an issue with the thermocouple. The manufacturer offers a service manual and owner's manuals on there site. This should assist you... www.desatech.com Thank you

Read the instructions on how to light the pilot but where I need to put the match I am not sure where to direct the flame to. I see the housing for the pilot but not where inside


You noted above it is a Coleman forced air Heater with a electronic ignition? You don't need a match to light the pilot, it lights automatic on a call for heat at the thermostat.If it does not light, then you have other problems. Let me know.
Good Luck,

COLEMAN FURNACE BURNER NOT LIGHTING


There is a thermocouple "wire" that is supposed to be touching the pilot flame.
The thermocouple senses a flame (hot) and allows the heater to operate. If the thermocouple does not sense that the pilot is on, then it will not allow the furnace to operate.
Bend the thermocouple wire (or the pilot tube) so that the pilot flame is touchingg the thermocouple.

That shouls work now.

The air from the fan should not be blowing through the same cxavity that the pilot is in.
If it is, then you may have a leaking furnace whereby carbon monoxide may be seeping into your living quarters.
If the fix above works and the pilot stays on after the heater starts, then there is probably no leak.

Let us know the results ... post a comment or "RATE" this or another expert's solution.

Pilot lights but goes off when releasing valve to turn on


i would suspect defective thermopile or obsruction in pilot assembly that prevents pilot flame from hitting thermopile . check pilot flame characteristics, should be blue and stiff.if it is yellowish that would indicate blockage.use multimeter to determine voltage output. you need about 100mv to maintain pilot and around 400mv to operate control valve
