This is an easily fixed problem. There are two thermistor switches on Dayton furnaces. One controls the fan motor run function and the heater valve on/off function. The other called a blocked vent switch (located in the top front of the heater) stops the gas valve from opening in the event the
vent is plugged. However, if the furnace was totally shut down for the summer and is now being fired up for winter, the block vent switch has to be reset. The switch has a reset button on it, push it and it should solve your problem. Also, check to make sure the fan run thermistor is clean and does not have debris around it as that acts a insulator for heat to keep the fan run function on.

It sounds like you have a couple of problems.

1. fan run all the time. I am sure is your fan delay module.
2. will not light. That would be the gas valve.

Dayton gas furnace model 3e385 works and lights but as soon as fan comes on the unit shuts off and lights again wondering what was wrong


Check heat exchanger for cracks or holes which will cause the fan to blow out the flames. The flame sensor on the pilot or burners has to be in constant contact with flame to operate normally. If the flame is put out by a cracked exchanger the exchanger or furnace needs to be replaced.

Pilot stays lite but fan comes on without burners lighting


On older systems the fan is controlled by a time delay relay which will turn of the blower after a preset time when a call for heat is present regardless if there is a burner function or not.
Need to check why the main gas valve is not energizing, there are to many configurations for a complete diagnostic without further info, Model, Brand etc.

Carrier super saver furnace keeps going on and off


Sounds like the flame sensor is dirty or bad. This sits in the burner flame when the burners are running. This usually has a single white wire connected to the back of it.

I have a Dayton 4LX55 tubular heater in my shop that won't light


Check your thermostat and see that it’s wired correctly, it should be as followed for this particular unit; R-W-G from the thermostat terminal, and R-W1-G on the units terminal strip. Also check and make sure you have gas to the unit and make sure the switch to the gas valve is in the “ON” position. If all of the above is correct and working, you could have a bad igniter, or a have a flame rollout, or high limit switch tripped.

Hope this helps

I have a Dayton gas heater Model 3E225


Does the main blower fan kick on? Also, if the heater is vented outside via a flue pipe, there may be a small (about 3 or 4 inches in diameter) vent fan that kicks on to ensure the exhaust fumes are evacuated through the flue pipe. If there's a problem with that fan, the burner won't light either.
