Question about Dayton Gas Furnace Heater
I've got a Ultra 97 furnace & the relay/transformer is bad. I beleave this was manufactured by Magic Chef. The relay is an Essex part #632-310580-2111 36634C001. The relay has 4 wires comming out. (2 black & 2 red) Any idea where to locate this or a replacement. Most I found only have 3 wires comming out.

SOURCE: Can't get new thermostat to work
When you have only 2 wires it is set up to run just a heater only. If this is a central heat/air unit, you would have 4, red for Hot, White for heat, green for fan, and yellow for cooling. sometimes they will have a blue wire that's not being used for a spare only.Some times you can use just the heat part of the stat if you connect the Red to r and if the subbas'e says Rc and Rh .If so, try connecting red to red and if it does say Rc and Rh that means red cooling and red heating.Run a jumper wire across the 2 reds along with the red from the wall. Connect white to w.Try programming the heat and see if it fires up. If not, you will have to replace stat with a 2 wire Heating only thermostat. Do not pull any wires up from the transformer as you will burn it out!! Just remember, 2 wires are for a heater only!4 are for heat and cool, and 8 are used for a heat pump.Sometimes the new stats have the red jumper wire in place and all you have to do is hook your red to either end of the jumper, and then white to W. If no RCand RH, get a heat only stat, or it will never work believe me, I know this.Good Luck and let me know if you need more help. Shastalaker7

Hopefully there is a wiring diagram glued to one of the panels to verify but on the transformer you will have 2, 110 volt wires. One is the power coming in (usually black wire) and the other is a common (white wire) and will be connected to other common leads. On the low voltage side of the transformer one wire will go to the thermostat then from the thermostat to the gas valve. The other side will connect to the gas valve. When the thermostat calls for heat it completes the circuit from transformer to gas valve back to transformer.
