Re: Too Warm

The thermostat may not be made to go lower than 50 degrees or so. A new one that can may need to be substituted. Go to the local appliance parts supplier. remove the old one and tell them what range you need.

I have a customer who has a Warm Morning direct vent propane heater: model DV.203 AMA. His complaint is the thermostat does not seem to work properly. The dial is turned to the lowest setting and it...

Some thermostats have a default lower limit such as 60 degrees to prevent complete loss of heating. The lower limit is not set by the user.

My error is ee88, how low should i set the temp in my basement, i've been setting it at 54 i think it has to be atleast 56 degrees

Normally, the air temp in a basement doesn't change more than 10 degrees throughout the year (Unless, you live in an extremely cold environment). If your just trying to knock the chill off during the winter and keep pipes from freezing 55 degrees is adequate.

What is the lowest temperature I can maintain with this heater ? That is, I plan to use it in crawl space where water pump and pressure tank and copper pipes and water heater are located and in winter...

YOu are asking a question that cannot be properly answered without knowing more of the situation. If this crawl space is subject to large air drafts and there are air vents that allow openess to this area, then you cannot be sure of the results. Since it will be winter, the humidity build-up is not so much a factor and you should take steps to isolate this area from air movement. Then you can apply heat. You may want to make a temporary plywood barrier around this area so your heat stays confined, thereby using the minimal heat needed to keep the temp you want. The heater will most likely handle the job; you should get a thermometer and keep the space at 40 degrees farenheit or slightly higher. When the warm weather arrives, remember to open the air venting again.

Fahrenheat fuh 54 b does not run long enough to get garage warm

have you checked what the operating amps are vs. the amps provided by the outlet. Sounds like you are trying to pull to much load and the machine probably has a saftey to where it shuts down bofore it buns itself up. Hope this helps. You have to be real careful about overloading circuts.

My Dayton garage heater model 2E636B does not heat up.

These heaters are the same as the marley heater, the element never gets red hot. the unit is set up so the fan kicks on after the element has heated to a certain temp and turns off after the element has cooled. It is common for these heater fans to cycle on and off quite often untill the air temp reaches about 55 degrees and then will operate normaly. If the fan still cycles too often you may have to replace the fan control and high limit switch. These are not very expensive and easy to replace yourself. they arte usualy attached to the back of the element with clips. The luke warm air is what these units put out. I have an equivelent to the dayton G73 and it heats a 24' X 30' garrage all winter in central Minnesota.
