Grainger should have one of those available.

What do you need to know? The line comes in feeds the high limit to the transformer, the hot side to the fan motor is broken by the fan control switch (disc limit). Very easy to figure out.

-sounds like the kind of answer you would get at Menards. Contractors (even semi-retired) only want to talk to other contractors. Everybody else is stupid.

I don't know what you mean by that comment. There are only two line voltage loads in a unit heater, one being the control transformer and the other the blower motor. It isn't rocket science. On the low voltage side the limits and thermostat break the power to the gas valve (standing pilot) or ignition control (spark sys).

- no I don't, but that's what I've found. Sounds like YOU may be one of those guys.

BTW - I found this thread because I have a Dayton garage heater Model 3UF86 (and it has no gas valve because it is all electric, so maybe it's NOT that simple.)

The line wiring coming in was for 3 phase and I need to change that to single phase 240v for my home garage. The diagram shows that it is factory wired for single phase so maybe I just need to use the L1 & L3 for my hot and neutral and remove the L2 ?

There is also a note for 3ph to 1ph - "A1 to A" (terminal block to the contactor), and "B1 to B" ( 3phase block to an element) which I am not sure if I need to do anything with, I have not been able to find any more info on this, even thru Grainger.

Was hoping to find some help here.

Yup. Just the answer I was expecting.

Actually no, I am not. Not if upwards of 10,000 posts to DIY boards means anything.

Well you didn't say that in your earlier post. You just dug up a year old thread with a criticism of one of the regulars.

Thing is this is NOT a DIY site. That was made quite clear in the sign up area.
So that said, if you come here with a DIY question as you have you will likely get some ribbing by the regulars and an invitation to visit the related DIY message board to this site.

Yup, you got me, Speedy Petey.

's comment to Redman's asking for help just kinda reminded me of someone else. My comment was dumb and no, you shouldn't feel bad about making me feel stupid.

I guess I just landed in the wrong place for DYI help. I did not realize that this is the official place where "contractors only want to talk to other contractors."

Sorry.

I have no idea why you think my comment was rude or something. "What do you need to know?" is not rude in my book.
