    Thank you Buffalo12980. Yes, I would like a diagram of how to set it up. Some of the items you have listed are new to my vocabulary! I am not an electrician. You sound like you really know what to do. It sounds like you want me to replace the igniter? A picture would be worth a thousand words. Please send one when you have time. Please send me your email and then I will send you mine. I don't want a bunch of junk mail.
    Thanks again, Denis.

Whoo tall order! well, since that unit uses a piezo crystal spark gap that's half the battle. go to the grainger site and find a 24 volt electrically operated solenoid for gas use. anything else won't do. next go to the white rodges web site and find a spark igniter with a flame rod flame detector 24 volt. you'll also need at least a 500va 120/24 volt transformer. a standard honeywell stat will do. I'm thinking the unit uses a millivolt generator to keep the gas valve open. you could substitute a mercury button cell to energize the pilot valve and keep the valve open. give me your email addy and I'll see if I can draw up a diagram for you.

    I did some more research on your project. I wouldn't feel right if I were to bypass anything that wasn't original equipment on the heater. its a liability clause and safety. if your system burns down the garage, I would be held liable and I don't need a lawsuit now! So, I'm going to decline your request.

Dayton is primarily sold by www.Grainger.com . You must purchase a re-jetting kit (Natural Gas Valve) from them to accomplish this.

I have a 150,000 BTU NATURAL GAS HEATER. IT WILL RUN FOR 10 SECONDS AND QUITS. IT WILL NOT IGNITE AGAIN UNLESS YOU SHUT IT OFF AND RESTART


Hi,
The heater is not proving the flame...and shutting down on safety...
Check the flame sensor and all connections of the ground from the burner to the ignition control...
The control may also be bad...
for additional help with Dayton units go to www.grainger.com
they sell that brand and have their own repair help techs.

Want to change Dayton 3E133E from natural gas to Propane


Would have to have conversion kit IF available. Must get from mfr. The Dayton brand is owned exclusively by W.W.Grainger. Not sure if someone else makes their furnaces for them. Start w/ Grainger, if they won't sell to you maybe they will give you the name of a company who will work on it. Good Luck!
