It appears you eirther have to small of wire installed.
I am assuming this is electric heat. The breaker could not be big enough.

The nameplate stamped on the unit should tell you
how manyamps it draws and the max size breaker
should be used.

I have a Dayton model 2e695 electric heater that will get warm but never hot, any suggestions on what might be wrong?

Ohm out the heaters sound like one heater has failed? There will be two wires going into the heater if you unplug it there and set a meter to ohms and place a lead on each terminal of the heater you see something from 5 to 15ohms. If it reads OL that heater is open and not working.

150K Dayton Heater, no spark

Check to be sure the Ignition Device (transformer) is grounded, first, then see if power is going in to the Ignition control. If power is going in, but there is no spark from the coil wire, then the transformer is bad (replacement part number 102482-01).

There are other parts the can create a no-fire situation, such as a defective Safety Control (reset), Therefore you must troubleshoot to find the exact problem in order to avoid throwing parts at the unit.

Installing a Dayton G73

How many amps is your service? And what gauge wire did you use for the heater?
If your service is only 40amps that is your problem. You don't have enough amps for the heater and the rest of your house, you will have to upgrade your service.
