Dayton G73 wire hook up with 10/3 NM-B wire

I'm trying to hook up my new Dayton G73 heater and I have a spool of 10/3 NM-B wire that I used for my dryer. The schematic shows the black, white and ground hook up. What should I do with the red wire from the 10/3?

Red wire is not needed. Be certain 208 volts is read across black and white. Cap off the red.

    Hire an electrician - your home insurance will not be honored if your home burns down because you got wiring info from an anonymouse idiot on the web... The G73 is NOT a 3 phase heater, it needs two phase from a 240v panel. You should use 10/2, with Black and Red as hot, copper ground to green ground at the heater.

Wiring


Since it is a 30 amp heater you need to run #10 gauge wire and use a 2 pole 30 amp breaker, since it is 208/240 volts. I hope this helped you.

Hooking up my heater


The white is the common neutral, it is probably a 3 wire unit, and you are missing the ground wire. Check inside the control panel and see if someone wired it using the white wire for the ground, it will be screwed into a terminal lug. Check the schematics to see if the unit requires a common neutral to run the controls.

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.

Dayton G73 electric heater


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.

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.
