SOURCE: Cozy wall furnace - unattached wire, won't turn on

Sounds like one of your limit switches lost it's wire. Look for a disc like device no more bigger then a 50 piece. You will see two wires going to that and if the wire broke take off the insulation and install new plastic sheath and re-attach. Let me know it that is helpful. ken

SOURCE: Properly installed electric baseboard heater won't work.

I am an electrician. You must measure the voltage across the black and red wires. Measuring each wire to the neutral will not cut it. If both your red and black wire are on the same phase the heater will not work.

To double check your wiring, measure the voltage across the two screws feeding your subpanel, they should be 240v or 208v depending on your power company. Then do the same at the breaker feeding your thermostat. Again it should read 240v.

If you have no potential across the screws it is possible that you installed an incorrect breaker. Not all breakers with two screws on them are 240v breakers. There is what is called a twin or split breaker that has two screws that are on the same phase. These are for wiring two 110v circuits, when you run out of spaces in the panel.

Double check everything. This is a relatively easy circuit to wire, even for homeowners. If the heater does not work them something is wrong so do not leave the circuit energized.

SOURCE: Heater won't turn off. Wires were troubled

Shut off the gas to the heater. Bad gas valve. Gas should not be leaking from any part of the gas valve.

Propane smell with pilot on and burner ring/thermostat off. Pilot off no smell. Pilot light is good, burner ring burns cleanly. Logs correctly placed. No line leaks. Failed shutoff valve how to fix?


This is a major hazard, you need to take pictures of the whole thing and then disassemble the whole thing and use ptfe sealant and reassemble the whole thing. Unless you want to get a sniffer to locate the issue, If could also be the pilot pressure is too high and the pilot is not burning all the gas. You may want to call a pro due to explosion risk.

How to light pilot on Dayton furnace and then start furnace


If this is a standing pilot system, turn the gas valve to pilot position. push in the knob & hold while lighting pilot...keeping holding knob down for a minute... this will pick & hold the gas valve. Let go of the knob & see if the pilot stays lit, if it does, then turn the knob to on position & the furnace should start if there is a call for heat from the thermostat

How do you shut down


the pilot light always stays on, its designed to allow your heater to turn on by itself without you needing to light a match every time. if the pilot light is burning you have nothing to worry about. its when the pilot light goes out that a small amount of gas leaks into the room. and by small i mean smaller than a hand held lighter... if you still want to shut the entire thing down you could turn off the gas line feeding the heater or possibly the whole house, otherwise the pilot light will stay on. as far as the actual heater turning off, thats probably controlled by some sort of thermostat somewhere. if you set the temp to very cold it should stay off. if that doesn't work then you may need a new thermostat.

Dayton Furnace - Pilot Light Goes Out but Fan keeps running?


Pilot lighted furnaces have a thermocouple made from disasimilar metals that when heated create electricity to actuate a relay that alows the gas to flow to the furnace.

When the thermocouple gets coated with carbon from the pilot lights constant burning it acts as an insulator and keeps the thermocouple from getting enough heat to generate electricity, a very good safety factor.

What you have to do is locate the thermocouple it should be located over the pilot light, you will see a gray substance around the thermocouple it will be hard like cement, take a knife and scrape away as much of the gray material as possible then sand the themocouple with a medium sandpaper until it shines, use one of you wifes emery boards, this should solve your problem.

Pilot light goes out when turning on the thermostat


Check your thermocoupling to make sure that it is sensing flame. You can tell if it is good or bad by the white on the tip of the flame sensor. The other problem would be a blocked or closed flue pipe. Make sure that the cap is not smashed down on the pipe on your roof
