Wire a dayton 4lz94a thermostat for turning on a gas fired heating unit?

If the unit has a switch that does fire it up when turned on. using the same gage wire, you can make an addaptor with an extention cord buy cutting just the black wire ing the extention cord and hooking the black wire from the male plug side to the line in side of the thermostat and the black wire from the female side to the load side of the thermostat..

The cord on my heater is damage can I replace the cord or buy a new one its a PowerHeat Infrared Quartz Heater

Was the cord damaged by an outside factor? Furniture, pet, wear? If so, a new cord is OK. If the cord went bad when using the heater as directed, there may be a failure in the unit -- Do Not Repair! Replace the entire cord from inside the unit with the same (or heavier) sized wire. Don't just splice it!

Heater will not shut off it will run 24hrs. even when temp. is above heater setting

seethis procedure and fix it. God bless you
    • 1 Connect the test leads to your DMM. Insert the black lead in the black "common" socket and push the red lead in the red socket labeled "volts, ohms, milliamperes." Set the function switch on your DMM to the "ohms" function.
    • 2 Use a Phillips head screwdriver to remove the space heater's back cover and disconnect the power cord from the switch and heating element
    • 3 Check the power cord for a broken wire. Touch one test probe to first one blade, then the other blade on the plug and then touch the other probe to the other end of the power cord. If the wire is working, there should be an indication of 0.00 to 0.5 ohms between each blade on the plug and a different end of the power cord. If the meter indicates "O.L." on one or both sides of the cord, the wire is defective. Most often, the wire will be broken right at the molded plug or inside the plug. The easiest way to fix this problem is to replace the cord set.
    • 4 Check between the two sides of the power cord for a 0.00 to 0.5 ohms reading indicating a short between the two sides of the line cord. If the heater tripped a circuit breaker, there is a short circuit somewhere in the heater wiring. Shorts in a power cord usually occur inside the molded plug. The short could be inside the cord set, if it has been pinched or cut. Fix by replacing the cord set.
    • 5 Check the thermostatic switch by placing one test probe on each of the switch terminals. Turn the switch slowly through its complete range. The DMM should indicate a continuous 0.00 to 0.5 ohms throughout the switch's full range of movement. An "O.L." indication here indicates a faulty switch, and you need to replace it. The reason that a functional switch could read 0.5 ohms and not 0.00 ohms is that some DMMs read their internal fuse's resistance.
    • 6 Check the heating element for an open circuit or short circuit. A typical radiant heating element will have a resistance of roughly 15 to 30 ohms. A burned out heating element will read "O.L." and need to be replaced. A reading significantly lower than 15 ohms indicates a shorted or partially shorted heating element, and it needs to be replaced.
    • 7 Reconnect the wires that you disconnected earlier and plug the heater in. Check the blower motor voltage if the heating element gets hot but the fan does not work. This is the only test that you will have to make with the heater plugged in, so use caution here.
    • 8 Set the DMM for "AC volts" and touch the test probes to the motor leads. A reading of 115 volts here indicates a defective fan motor, and you need to replace it.

Where can i get a replacement power cord for this heater?

unless you get a second hand one it would be cheaper to make your own if you buy a couple meters of cable and power plug you create your own and you can get these parts at any hardware store and instructions with parts on how to and if you know anyone with any electrical knowledge they should be able to put it together for you, all you need to do is take your cord with you and get someone to match the cable and plug for you and its only an appliance it should just be standard stuff, another solution is to find an old appliance that doesen't work any more and remove power cord to it and use on oil heater, these options can be done and done safely for your peace of mind i reckon to get the actual cord for it may coast more than its worth so honestly would be looking at other options if you know electrician you should have no worries

My heater fan wont turn on in auto mode but will in manual

Well you have a good transformer and the fuse is not blown. So I would look for the most obvious thing which is the relay. Why the relay? Well most units do double duty as air conditioner and heater. AC and heat require different fan speeds. The relay shifts the fan from low to high for ac. The fan runs on low for heat. In rare instances it could be a bad wall thermostat but most times not. You know the fan is good because you can get it to come on manually.

Reddy heater pro 110

My best guess is that you are are connecting to your AC receptacle with an extention cord that is too small. The Reddy Heater contains a computer that will shut the unit off if it cannot pull enough amps from your service. The longer the cord the higher the loss from receptacle to unit. This loss can be reduced by increasing the size of your extention cord. I run a 100' 10/2 cord.

Hope this helps!
