Dayton e51 kerosene heater

Very strange, the machine comes on with the fan , spark and fuel.It lights briefly and then cuts off.The led flashes on the side.Now if you take the top cowling off, it will operate properly.

One other thing to look at is the photo sensor. it has two wires and faces the front. it will have a rubber housing and if you pull it out of its holder you should look in the end. if all you see is soot take a soft rag and pencil and try wiping it off. be careful not to use too much pressure as it can be damaged. either it or the small opening it looks through is plugged. it has to see a flame or it assumes that it did not light and will shut off the unit. this may go in a cycle over and over.

Thermostat is touching hot metal when cowling on, there is a emergengy shut off sensor being activated while cowling attached---thermostats are meant to be placed with some space around them--they are calibrated thusly, if this space does not exist or if has lost its mechanical integrity- then any unit using such a device sops working properly

I have a 2E511C heater that wont fire up but the spark plug is firing


You probably already know this . The 2E511C was manufactured by DESA for Grainger, so you must follow these Reddy Heater troubleshooting tips.

It sounds like the heater is not getting fuel or the fuel is not hitting the spark and you must troubleshoot and find out why.

Contact me for a Dayton to DESA parts cross reference chart.

Wat the hell is wrong with my dayton heater?170,000 btu oil fired...wont stay runnin?on shut down puffs like a mutha....


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.

Dayton 175k heater


the air pressure is not correct on either units.the photo cell DOES NOT look for light any more,it count the light flashes.if the flame is not in the right possition the heater will shut down....after the unit ignites the ignitor is no longer used to keep the unit working,just the fuel that is being fed to the flame ball.that's why the pressure is so inportant.......
