Question about Dayton Electric Heater
I have a dayton kero heater 110,000 btus model 3e2180. You can turn it on and the motor will run but will not fire up but you can take the top cover and it will fire up then when you start to put the cover back on it goes out.
Your photo cell is bad or dirty its a little lens that looks threw the hole into the cumbustion chamber with two wires coming out of it.

OHH I bet this is the same question I just posted to. So it is a forced air kerosene. The usual is like I said a blocked combustion air hole. It could also be something shorting out the spark ignition to ground when replaces inspect the wires and look for a week or loose ground in this case. Sorry about the confusion.
A Bad ignition proving circuit or something like (what we call here dirt dobbers) hornets nest could be letting the flame hit it and not allowing full flow through the heater. Mice are also notorious for making problems like wires chewed and nests in the wrong place. Given where it may have been stored.
