I have a garage that used to have power. About 5 years ago the previous owners disconnected the power to the garage. The original owners however had created a very nice home workshop which included a heating unit. It is a Dayton 3E368 NG Unit Heater. (See Link
) I have since restored power to the garage by adding a new sub-panel (Thanks to help on the Electric forum). I am now ready to restore power to the workshop (which is behind the garage). The heating unit is exactly the way it was when it was turned off. The gas line is still working too. But I have some questions before starting this up.
1. It appears the thermostat maybe missing. There are two yellow wires labeled (to thermostat) and a brown thermostat wire attached it but nothing on the other end. What kind of thermostat should attach? I have one I bought for a base board heater awhile back. Will that work? (you can see the wire on the right side of the attached picture, hanging from the gas line)
2. Should I do anything to prepare the heater before I turn it on?
3. Anything I should worry about.
