SOURCE: My Dayton garage heater model 2E636B does not heat up.

These heaters are the same as the marley heater, the element never gets red hot. the unit is set up so the fan kicks on after the element has heated to a certain temp and turns off after the element has cooled. It is common for these heater fans to cycle on and off quite often untill the air temp reaches about 55 degrees and then will operate normaly. If the fan still cycles too often you may have to replace the fan control and high limit switch. These are not very expensive and easy to replace yourself. they arte usualy attached to the back of the element with clips. The luke warm air is what these units put out. I have an equivelent to the dayton G73 and it heats a 24' X 30' garrage all winter in central Minnesota.

SOURCE: my heater turns on the gas starts but then it shuts down

I have a Lennox Conservator III G16 and when I turn the termostat up to turn on the blower want come on, but on occassions my wife said that she tapped on the side of the furnance and the blower might start working. I vaccumed out both blower area and the upper furnance compartment, but still the blower want come on. Our dyer is located in the same room as the furnance, we had a HVAC associate check it out and he stated that we needed to vent our dyer outside to prevent dust buildup and a safety hazard. What do you think is wrong with our blower and we have not found a solution or method to vent our dyer outside as of yet.

Check the thermostat and make sure the fan switch is set on "Auto". If it is set on "ON" the blower will run constantly.

Pilot lights up but would not fire up into heating, I have brivis buffalo 85


This is the proper cycle of a furnace and what should happen.

Inducer motor kicks on, it runs for a little bit, about 3-5 seconds, then you should see a bright yellow glow, this is the igniter, shortly after, you should hear a click and the gas should start to flow, almost immediately it turns to a blue flame. Then your igniter should turn off and the blower motor start up.

If the pilot turns on and the gas ignites, then shortly after the unit shuts off, chances are this is your blower motor. It is not starting up, then the heat limit is reached in your unit and the safety shuts it off.

Mr. Heater Natural Gas Garage Heater - 45,000 BTU. Power 120 volt and 24 volt good. Thermostat calling for heat, but nothing happening??


Check for a fuse either in-line or on the circuit board. There should be 24 volts going to the thermostat. If not, you have either a bad transformer or a bad thermostat wire. Jump out the terminals that the thermostat wires are connected to. This should force the unit to fire. If not, bad circuit board.

I have a Daton Fuel trimmer furnace for my garage.


On the thermostat see if it has a setting for fan on auto and off try turning the fan on then see if it comes on, if it does then it may be your thermostat has failed if it does not turn on then reset the circuit breakers to see if you have a breaker kicked off. If it was wired properly there should be one near the unit and one in the main breaker panel so be sure to reset both. To do this you must force the breaker switches all the way off then all the way on. On some breakers if you do not force it to the off position it will not reset the breaker. If this does not help let me know and I will try to help you some more just replay to the e-mail you get go to the bottom of the page and post add comment

My honeywell gas suspended garage heater will not come on when the t'stat calls for heat. It is a heat only unit and neither the fan nor the blower motor will come on. The Heater is getting power to it...


The pilot light has to be lit before gas valve will operate. That's a safety feature so the valve won't open and fill the garage with gas and possibly cause an explosion or fire. If you have a standing pilot and can't get pilot to stay lit, it's usually the thermocouple and it will need to be replaced. Once the pilot is lit, the gas valve comes on and heats the combustion chamber up to approx. 100° to 125° a thermostat controlled fan switch will close and bring the blower on.

Pilot light is on but burners will not kick on. If I turn on the switch I get no response. Once in a while the burners kick on the shut off after about 2 min. Then they will do the same thing on and off...


Make sure the pipes are full of water. Check the thermostat to see if it is calling for heat. Make sure the thermostat is set to a temperature higher than the current temp of the water. If all those things are Ok then the unit may have gone off on high limit the last time you used it or the gas valve coils may have to be replaced. If there is a reset button for high limit press it. If the unit fires up but does not stay on then the gas valve coils may need to be replaced.
