    I have several of these heaters, they work very well however the thermostat could be better designed, it is hard to tell where hi and lo are we usually have to turn it way down about 1/4 from low and it does cycle and the temp varys about 10-12 degrees before it kicks back on, we have had no problem with reliability and it travels down the road heating in a cargo trailer, no failures yet, been using them about 6 years and hundreds of thousands of miles

    I bought the G73 used from a guy at work, he says it was used very little and works good. I wired it up in my garage and it is off more tnan it is on. runs for 2 minutes and off for five. I read in the directions that it will cycle when below 50 degrees, I ask how will it ever get to 50 degrees. I have heated my garage up to 70 with a torpedo heater in addition to the G73. when the torpedo was shut off the temp continued to drop in the garage. By the way the garage is fully insulated with the house on two sides. I left the G73 on at the end of one day when the garge was heated to 65 with the torpedo, and the next day it was 40 in there with an outside temp of 25. Any solutions, could I have some wires mixed up? I checked the eattage jumpers and they are on high.

I just got my G73.  It comes with a new note that says "below 50 degrees the fan will cycle randomly (and might seem like its not working correctly) but once it is above 50 it will cycle normally."  it uses that to let the element re-heat quickly to bring the room up to temp faster.

Check the thermostat settings and try with different settings.
It sounds like is set at very low heat and the room is at that temperature.

Yes, but it will require some knowledge of electric to do that. You will need a line voltage thermostat and mostly like have to have that run a contactor that will be wired to bypass the heater thermostat. A good electrician should be able to to this for you very easily.

My Dayton garage heater model 2E636B does not heat up.


These heaters are the same as the marley heater, the element never gets red hot. the unit is set up so the fan kicks on after the element has heated to a certain temp and turns off after the element has cooled. It is common for these heater fans to cycle on and off quite often untill the air temp reaches about 55 degrees and then will operate normaly. If the fan still cycles too often you may have to replace the fan control and high limit switch. These are not very expensive and easy to replace yourself. they arte usualy attached to the back of the element with clips. The luke warm air is what these units put out. I have an equivelent to the dayton G73 and it heats a 24' X 30' garrage all winter in central Minnesota.

Installing a Dayton G73


If that is a 240V unit then you are correct wiring L1 and L2 to black and red. Unless the unit uses 120V for something like a control panel, it doesn't need the neutral.
