Dayton 3E837 unit heater manual


Can anyone help me find the owners manual for a Dayton 3E837 unit heater? I have already tried the Grainger web site and it is not listed?

I don't have a manual but do have a working 3E837 heater. If you don't install yours I would be interested in buying it as I need parts, especially the fan limit switch. These heaters were made in 1980 and I can't find parts anywhere.

Dayton 3E837 unit heater manual


Thank you. I'm freezing as we are having a very cold winter. If I can't get it soon, I'll have to buy something to replace it but I hate to do that. I've used that heater for 28 years and never had to have it worked on. I love it and don't want to replace it. If you can't use yours I can sure use the parts and I'm sure we could work out a deal and I'll pay shiping. I'm 63 years old so only need it for maybe 20 more years, ha, so would rather keep the old faithful than replace.

I talked to my father-in-law and he wants use it in his garage. The sad thing is that out fan limit switch is also missing, there are jumper wires to make it work. Also do not have a thermostat. I will talk to him more about selling it, if you are still insterested in it for parts. How much would you want to buy it for? How would you ship something like that? And how would we share personal info for shipping? As you can see, I am new at this.

I was really interested in the fan limit switch. Don't think I'm still interested but if so, I'll contact you later
