I have a Modine G105A shop heater. I cant find any information

Resolved Question:

I have a Modine G105A shop heater. I can't find any information on it. I would like to find out which type of venting required for this unit. Would this be a Type B or something else? Secondly, the wiring is all there but was cut so I could use a wiring diagram or instructions to hook it back up.

Hi, I'm Tim and I'm an HVAC expert here to assist you with your questions. Thanks for the opportunity to help!

Tim H. :

Hello there

Customer:

Hi TIm

Tim H. :

This heater will be vented with class B venting vertically through the roof with an approved cap. Then use single wall venting from the appliance to the vertical stacK.

Customer:

does it need to be through the roof or can i do a horizontal vent out the side wall of the garage?

Tim H. :

No, it should go through the roof to establish a draft and be to code

Customer:

it sucks because i have concrete roof tiles

Customer:

ah ha, okay

Customer:

so will there be a need for double wall vent material or anything crazy?

Tim H. :

The only way you could go through the side is with a Tjernland side wall vent kit---very expensive

Customer:

yikes, probably worth more than the heater itself

Tim H. :

Yes, true

Tim H. :

So class B will be double wall vent

Customer:

ok great

Tim H. :

That is for the vertical stack only

Customer:

i could use a recommendation on where to purchase a vent kit

Tim H. :

There are many places online that sell venting. Even most home improvement stores sell it

Customer:

cool

Tim H. :

I believe this is 6 inch

Customer:

yes, that appears to be correct. the vent on the heater is 6"

Tim H. :

Yes, and it's oval coming off the draft hood, correct?

Customer:

that's right

Tim H. :

So just take the single wall and sort of "squish" it so it attaches to the outlet

Customer:

so far no luck in finding an oval to round adapter though.

Customer:

it's 6 3/4 wide

Customer:

excellant

Customer:

i will plan on that

Tim H. :

You should be able to take the 6 inch single wall and sort of "squish" it to fit

Customer:

my only other question was the wiring is cut but all there and looks to be in good shape

Tim H. :

OK

Tim H. :

If you give me about 1/2 hour, I can try and see if a wiring diagram is still available. This heater is 1960's vintage!

Customer:

yes, you're exactly right, it is

Tim H. :

I'll see what I can find if you want to check back in a bit

Customer:

thanks!

Tim H. :

No problem

Tim H. :

Here is a wiring diagram

Customer:

great!

Tim H. :

Yes, good luck! Thank you for using Just Answer and please don't forget to rate my service. (Bonuses are always appreciated). Feel free to post back with any additional questions.
