Question about Dayton Electric Heater
This heater is just over a year old. Intially worked great, but now it keeps cycling - heats for 45 secs, then off for 75 secs. Fan works. Same result with the included thermostat or an external thermostat, so I doubt the thermostat is the problem. Is the problem likely to be the high temp cutout?

You want to use the 10/3 wire... the red and black are the hot, the white goes to the nuetral and the green/bare wire to the ground.
Use a 30 amp 2 pole breaker..

It sounds to me like your thermostat may be bad. I would check power incoming to t-stat then turn temp. setting up and down to see if it is switching on and off. If not then replace. If it does then I would check all wiring to gas valve and if power is shutting off to valve but burner continues then replace gas valve. Thank you.

The sensor for the thermostat is probably going bad or has bad connections. It is (or thinks it is) heating up fast and therefore shuts of the heater.
