200,000 BTU Oil Fired Dayton: Shuts off

Hi there ! Our unit pretty much stopped coming most of the time and stopped after a few minutes when it did come on. I read your solution on checking for fan blade clearance with the couling. We blew out the rear section with compressed air, added small washers under the couling lip to raise it 1/16", put the couling back on. It fired right up and ran great for about 5 minutes and shut down. When we ran it with and without the couling on it seems to have a lot of good fan pressure. Is there a manual and or more trouble shooting tips for this size unit? Do you know what my next thing to check is? Thanks in advance, Mike Quante

Most likely the flame sensor is dirty and needs to be cleaned. The sensor is a small rod that sits in front of the burner. Try using steel wool to clean it.

I need a service manual for a Dayton oil fired 350,000 BTU heater.

I have a manual for a Dayton 3E218E. If you want a copy email me at and put "HEATER MANUAL" in the subject line. I can scan it in and email it back to you. This manual is for 2E510F, 2E511F, 3E218E and 3E219E. I also found a great web site for parts for all these models as well:

Most use a spark plug to ignite fuel it could need cleaning. You also could have water in fuel or dirt
check and clean ignitor/spark plug clean fuel line and nozzle, drain and clean tank Check for water in fuel by tilting unit to have a low corner siphon fuel from that corner after 1 hr inspect for water.

If the fan was working, but the fan is not working now after replacing the whole kit, then something was installed incorrectly during the installation, possibly the rotor gap or rotor thickness is not correct or vane/vanes installed 90 degrees off.

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.
