Question about Dayton E52 Utility 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.
We have a 3VE53C 400,000 btu heater , the fans will come on you can hear the ignitor and fuel will run out of the front of the unit. It trys to fire twice and will not. Then you get the E1 error sign.

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
