Question about Dayton Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Dayton unit heater model#4LX58A. The unit is getting spark but seems to be not quite enough spark to get it to fire. If I use a cigarette lighter I can get it to fire. Any idea what the issue is?

Had cell phone and computer plugged into dual cigarette lighter unit and cigarette lighter overheated and quit working - we checked the fuse - it seems fine.Just want the cigarette lighter socket to work...


More than likely overheated the wiring going to the lighter as well and burned it off. If you pull the lighter socket out you should see if it did. Simply solder it back on and be careful not to overload it again.

I have a 2E511C heater that wont fire up but the spark plug is firing


You probably already know this . The 2E511C was manufactured by DESA for Grainger, so you must follow these Reddy Heater troubleshooting tips.

It sounds like the heater is not getting fuel or the fuel is not hitting the spark and you must troubleshoot and find out why.

Contact me for a Dayton to DESA parts cross reference chart.

My3e219c heater was working fine.turned it off then tried to turn back on and all it does is fan runs while it is sparking and sucking fuel but will not fire.


Hi, Try checking the fuel supply to this unit, sounds as though something has been picked up by the pump and it is not getting enough fuel to fire. If you have spark, and fan is running, the fuel is the problem. Check this out and let me know. You and I can go from there.

How do i change 12v power / cigarette lighter! in a Peugoet 206


The cigarette lighter is connected to a harness that's being the unit. You need to most likely remove the panel that the cigarette lighter is attached to in order to remove the lighter unit out. Once the unit is out, disconnect the wiring harness to exchange it. I don't know how exactly your lighter will come out

Distance to keep between a 2000 watt heater & wall insulation?


The fiberglass will not catch fire. There is a sfer barrier built into the wall heaters. When you install a wall heater you basically just cut the wall open and throw the unit in with the flue and gas and away you go. If you can to second guess take some of the insillation and take a match or a lighter and hold it in your hand and light the fiberglass, you will see that it wont burn even with direct flame on it. You are 100 percent safe

Wat the hell is wrong with my dayton heater?170,000 btu oil fired...wont stay runnin?on shut down puffs like a mutha....


Most use a spark plug to ignite fuel it could need cleaning. You also could have water in fuel or dirt
check and clean ignitor/spark plug clean fuel line and nozzle, drain and clean tank Check for water in fuel by tilting unit to have a low corner siphon fuel from that corner after 1 hr inspect for water.
