Red, white, and black will be your high voltage. Green will probably be for ground and yellow and orange go to the thermostat. I can confirm on Monday when I have access to manuals.

### What is the motor hp?

Please see below courtesy of engineeringtoolbox.com

Electrical power is in general rated in watt (W) or horsepower (HP). A horsepower is a unit of power equal to 746 watts or 33000 lb ft per minute (or 550 lb ft per second).
A watt is equal to the power produced by a current of 1 amp across the potential difference of 1 volt. A watt is 1/746 of 1 horsepower.
Even if the watt is the base unit of electrical power, it is common to rate motor power in either horsepower or kilowatts.

### Power in Watts

Direct Current Electric power supply to a direct current (DC) motor:
PkW = ?m U I / 1000 (1)
where
PkW = power (kW)
?m = motor efficiency
U = voltage (V)
I = current (A, amps)
Electric power supply to a alternating current (AC) motor:
Single Phase PkW = ?m U I PF / 1000 (1b)
where
PF = Power Factor
Two Phase Four Wire PkW = ?m 2 U I PF / 1000 (1c)
Three Phase PkW = ?m 1.73 U I PF / 1000 (1d)

### Power in Horsepower

Horse power can be expressed as:
Php = PkW / 0.746 (2)
or
Php = (?m U I / 1000) / 0.746
= ?m U I / 746 (2b)
where
Php = horsepower (hp)

### Dayton electric heater model 3UF94 can you rewire from 3phase 240v to singel phase 240v

You can wire any heater with elements to single phase because all heaters are single phase. It will require a larger feed because your amp draw is going to go up doing away with the third leg. You split the heaters up from 3 phase to 2 legs amp draw is going to go up 30 percent or so.

### Dayton heater mod 2yu59 is not heating up?

Need to check the low voltage circuit for 24 volts, the 480 volt to 24 volt transformer may have a circuit protection reset or fuse installed. All the 3 phase electric heaters use a low voltage control circuit for operation of relays (24 volt coils).

### I got a dayton 2hp. electric motor model#2N982M it appears you can wire it for 110volts,220volts, or 440volts - need a wiring diagram mine partially worn off.

That motor is a three phase motor and will not run on 110 volts. It is also a high RPM motor with a lot of torque and MUST be mounted to a solid surface before it is powered up or it could rip your arm off as it flies across the room. If you have access to three phase power then you could power that motor but not with standard household electrical service.

Heres a link to some info for it

### I am working with a Dayton 2YU39. The name plates states that it has to be powered by 208 volt system. There's a 3-phase panel and a single-phase panel. The 3-pahse panel L1 to ground is 118 volts. L2 is a...

Hi,
Here's what I think but you will have to check it out...
The fan motor in the 39 heater is a 120V fan there fore it cannot be hooked to the 240 which potentially could have the high (wild) leg as one of the fan legs...
The 240V 36 unit probably has a 240v fan motor....
Now if you were to make sure that the leg that fed the motor was a 120V to ground leg then you will be okay...
Hope you understand where I was going with this...

### Hello im tryin to wire a dayton model 2yu68 unit heater 208v .30 amp bbreaker with 10 awg 3 wire and simple thermostat and still wont fire up

Are you using this heater for a residential application? 208V is typically only seen in a commercial/residential setting. It would be unusual for a home to be wired in what they call 3 phase which is how a 208 voltage is obtained.

Hope this helps. I would strongly advise that you consult with an electrician as 3 phase voltage is not for the average DIY'r.

### 240v circuit wiring to run my new Dayton Heater (3Vu34A)

On the 40 amp breaker, you should be using 8-3 w/ground. 10-3 w/ground will work on the 30 amp breaker. 12-3 w/ground is used for 20 amp circuits. Your new heater should have the electrical requirements listed in the user/installation information.

Here are a few ways to calculate your BTU's.
Get ready to use that algebra you thought you'd never use.
1 Ton = 12000 BTU's
400cubic feet per minute (CFM) = 1 Ton on standard ac units (300 is an absolute minnimum)
BTU's air heat = difference in temp. ( ∆T ) x 1.08 x CFM
∆T = BTU's / (1.08 x CFM)
i.e. 65F entering your unit and 93F air leaving on a 12000BTU unit.
∆T = 28
CFM = 400
28 x 1.08 x 400 = 12096BTU's
Another way...
Electric heat calculations.
BTU's = KW (killowatts) x 3413
Watts = Volts x Amps (single Phase) Most Homes))
Watts = Volts x Amps x Phase (this is for three phase units.)three wires and a ground))
120 volts 30 amps single phase (common)
120 x 30.0 x 1 = 3600 or 3.6KW 3.6 x 3413 = 12286BTU's
