Question about Dayton (3E386) Heater

Dayton 3E227A Heating Cycle

I have an old 75 K BTU Dayton shop heater in a large (approx 24' x 48') garage. For the last two years it has started to produce heat only in short cycles. The burner will come on for a time, maybe up to two minutes and go off as the fan comes on. The burner will then immediately come back on for a short time and again shut off as the fan cycles on. It will repeat these short cycles until the thermostat senses the set temperature. The heater did not work this way before. It used to run continuously until the set temperature was reached. What could be causing this change in operation?

    Thanks, I'll check the connections and try to find the internal sensor to see if it needs cleaning or replacement.

The sensor for the thermostat is probably going bad or has bad connections. It is (or thinks it is) heating up fast and therefore shuts of the heater.

I have a 25,000 BTU hanging furnace, will this heat a 900sq foot garage that has been insulated.


Here in Vermont we design heating systems to perform at -10 to -20 degrees. Depending upon how tight the doors and windows are, it may if your temperatures don't drop below 20 degrees. It may take a while to heat up and I would not expect any temperature over 62 degrees inside the garage. Maybe a 50,000 Btu heater? Remember the output may be 20% less than the rated input of the heater.

Venting a Dayton 4E454 24,000 BTU gas furnace


If you intend to use this in a residential garage, you will have to use standard galvanized round pipe coming off the unit, 24 gauge will suffice, use a minimum of 6”-8” from the unit. From there you will have to make the transition to the B-Vent. Always double check with you local codes in your area.

Hope this helps.
