Find where the gas line connects to the gas valve on the back of the heater, from the gas valve, follow a small aluminum tube going into the back of the heater. There may be a removable door to access the pilot assembly. If there is no aluminum tube, the unit has electronic ignition and no pilot lite. Turn the gas knob to off, then to pilot. Hold the gas valve in and with a long match or gas grill lighter, light the pilot. Continue to hold the knob in for about 30 seconds. After that, release the knob and check to make sure the pilot stays lit. If so, rotate the knob to ON. The thermostat will kick the burners on.

Dayton3e368a pilot lights but burners do not come on. Heat rod was replaced last year. Heater is in a greenhouse


Most heaters has a pilot proving sensor of one type or another, it will be in direct contact with the pilot flame to prove that the pilot is lit and then will allow for the main gas to the burners to open. If the proving device has failed then it needs replaced.

Just bought a Dayton electric heater to heat a 12' X 20' greenhouse in October. When the heater comes on it now makes a loud sound as if the fan is hitting something. I have it mounted horizonally near...


If it sounds like the fan is hitting something, It is likely you will have to get a step ladder, and look closely at what is making the noise-
Likely something fell in there-- and needs to be removed.

When you shut the thermostat down, does the fan stop instantly?

Hi the thermocouple is a long copper wire that goes back to the gas valve from the pilot .

Pilot goes out!!


My manual shows three possibilities:  1) Insufficient fresh air available for combustion, so ODS kicks off gas flow 2) Low gas line pressure (should be between 11 and 14") or 3) ODS/Pilot is partially clogged.  Toll free number for ProCom is 877-886-5989.
