Question about Dayton Electric Heater

1 Answer

Not burning with top on

I have a Dayton heater that was given to me. The person before me said it quit burning and I think they may have worked on it some. I took the top off and it will ignite and burn as long as the top is off, then while it is running you can put the top on and the flame will go out and after just a couple of seconds the the fan will shut off.

Ignite =Burn? I assume its gas. Sounds like its starved for combustion air and while open it is getting plenty of air. Check for obstruction to the burner inlet area and maybe a hornet built a mud nest during the off season in it so look closely. Also maybe the shutter (if so equipped) is not open. You don't mention any miscolored parts of the flame. It should be blue for the most part unless its a kerosene heater.

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.

Dayton kero heater wont fire0


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.

Dayton 2yu62 doesn't work at all


Need to check heating elements and replace if necessary. If your checks are complete that is the answer I think.I suggest reviewing your findings. The heating elements rarely go bad.
