Repairing rival titan space heater

Albert, I have serious doubts that you'll find a suitable switch for your needs on this type of a unit. They just aren't available, unless you can walk into a hardware store and know just what you want. Otherwise, these things are made in China for the most part, and when they ship them over here, they don't ship replacement parts for them...

I'm looking to buy motor for an Airco Gas furnace model ACF-45, serial #DI-109. The motor is Tamper, 1/6hp, 1727rmp, type S-100336. Do you have any suggestion?

Hi, W/D here.
Make the necessary sketches, showing what color wire goes to which terminal (trust me on this, it's a really good idea). I do it whenever two or more wires are involved, and I've been known to also lable terminals with the wire color with a "Sharpie". Remove the motor and start capacitor. Take both with you to your local appliance parts supply house. They will match you up with a similar motor, and match the capacitor to the new motor. Getting the exact motor you described isn't important. Getting a good quality replacement motor with your horsepower rating, shaft size and matched capacitor is. They'll have it, and the cost will be less than running one down. I installed a replacement in a furnace last week, with the motor, capacitor and a pack of crimp-on terminals (I ran out!) costing about $109.00. Your's may be less at 1/6 hp. The one I installed was 1/3 hp, replaced a GE, and works fine.
Best regards, --W/D--

My Master forced air kerosene heater fan motor hums but wont turn over, I tried replacing the capacitor with no luck. Do you know what the problem may be

Be sure you replaced the capacitor with an identical one. If it is and you have the right voltage to the motor then the start windings in the motor are bad and the motor will have to be replaced. But like I said, make sure the voltage and micro-farad ratings of the replacement capacitor are the same as the original.

Heater works fine but you have to give the fan a little push in order for the unit to start.....can you help?

This doesn't have an easy fix to it. Sounds like the fan motor is very weak, probably the brushes in the motor are worn out and I doubt you can replace just the brushes. Probably have to change out the fan motor. Good news is these  are common heaters and parts should be available. Try Grainger on line or even Dayton on line and see if there is replacement parts for the fan.

Top of Form

Dayton heaters at one time were manufactured by DESA or a predecessor and labeled DAYTON for Grainger. I have been unable to find any specific reference material to "Dayton 3EV51".

There were 2 types of motors used. I suspect your heater has a starter relay. The solid state relay was used to allow the energizing of the start winding which would allow the motor to achieve approx 80% of rated speed, then the relay would de-energize the start winding to prevent overheating. The relay is not attached to the motor, except for the wiring.

This is what the starter relay looks like. If yours has one check to see if it is energizing the starter windings at start-up. If not it is probably defective. The part is still available at, I think, but today's replacement part looks slightly different.

If your motor does not have the relay, then the motor has an internal start-up system which is not serviceable, but the motor is probably still available. Most of the time the motor's part number is printed on the label.

You should probably replace the heater motor. All the parts should still be available for you fan and it should only take a few minutes to change out.
