Question about Dayton 511 Utility Heater
It is getting fuel, I cleaned the air filter, it sprays fuel and you can see the spark but won't lite
I am having the exact same problem with my Dayton 150,000 BTU. There is fuel, spark and the fan runs but it will not light up. I took the cover off and it would light... but I think that is because the fan was not forcing as much air across the spark and fuel. Seems like the fan is not allowing it to start.... Suggestions?
See if there is a pressues switch on the heater one of the tubes could be blocked,
