If that is a 240V unit then you are correct wiring L1 and L2 to black and red. Unless the unit uses 120V for something like a control panel, it doesn't need the neutral.

SOURCE: Wiring diagram for a Dayton thermostat

Contact Dayton on the internet for this problem. The diagram should be available on their site. Or they will give you a number for customer care. They can give you step-by-step instructions. I am a technician and this is what I would do as their are millions of wiring diagrams. Many are noy up to date.

If I understand your post correctly....You state that you are hooking up a 240v heater and towards the end you speak of removing jumpers...W2 terminals..ect. It sounds to me your trying to us a 24v low voltage thermostat instead of a Line voltage thermostat.That's what I'd take a look at.

SOURCE: hooking up my heater

The black goes to L1, Red to L2. The bare copper wire is the ground which goes to the grounding nut in the rear, it has the green washer on it. The white is the 'common' or 'neutral' wire and isnt used, it gets capped with a wire nut and some electrical tape.

My dayton NG heater fan will not shut off properly


Sounds like a bad fan switch. The switch is located on the heat exchanger and is 110 volt bi-metal switch. Follow the wires from the blower going back to the heatexchanger. Graingers can get you a new switch if you give them your model number. www.grainger.com.

I just purchased an used furnace model # 4E458 and serial # Q9541564. I am trying to find a wiring diagrahm. Where can I get one? Thank you Joe Biernasz


if you go to the manufacturers web site they should be able to help. but most of the time you just need to hook up your high voltage(120v) which if your black, white and green. and on your low voltage side it is usually red=r,green=g,yellow=y and w=white. if you have a thermostat that is battery operated than you do not need a common wire. if you need a common wire than us the blue wire. and if you are hooking up an a/c system then hook up 1 wire to y and the other to common

Hooking up my heater


The white is the common neutral, it is probably a 3 wire unit, and you are missing the ground wire. Check inside the control panel and see if someone wired it using the white wire for the ground, it will be screwed into a terminal lug. Check the schematics to see if the unit requires a common neutral to run the controls.

Red wire is not needed. Be certain 208 volts is read across black and white. Cap off the red.
