Open Question

Vulcan ducted heatingThe unit (Cx90) shutdown on summer period, and I just bought over and tried to ignite the pilot as instruction at the back of panel. The problem is, it fully control by wall control inside the house and no ignition button beside the pilot gas valve. Furthermore, I can find any pilot light that i can light up. It is new to me. Any idea to light it up? the fan is working fine when turn to cool. Turn to Heat, the fan stop.

Could be a number of things
Sounds like it the gas valve. If the gas Valve isn't opening or is burnt out then no gas will flow through it.
Also it the pilot is blocked then you wont get and gas coming through to light it up.
I am forever replacing gas valves on the buffalo series units and have found this to be quite a common problem on older units.

This unit is a cooling unit only. I don't know what switch you are looking at but I don't think it's for the evap. cooler(swamp cooler). I am in the Phoenix, Arizona area and it's very common to have a evap. cooler and a seperate heat/cool system as on the hottest days the evap. cooler doesn't cool enough. I hope this helps. Please give me a positive rating. Thank you.

Hi,
From what you are showing and saying I would say that you have a bad gas valve... Your test B is the most telling in that it pulls the MV's down when you close the wall switch, but the gas valve does not open...this tells me that it is trying but the valve is not opening...

Now... the next problem will be to find that valve... from doing a very quick search, I believe that it is an OEM valve and probably will only be available from the manufacturer or a dealer...

So I would contact your dealer or Vermont castings and try to secure a new gas valve.

If it were a thermocouple problem the pilot would not stay lit...

One other test would be to bypass the wall switch and jumper the gas valve directly to make sure the wall switch is not the problem...

Pilot lights but won't stay on in my older style vulcan space heater. thermo couple was replaced last year.any ideas that i could try thanks


Most common cause of pilot light problems is air movement. If your space heater exhausts gas through the roof, ensure the cap is on and level. If not, outside air movement will blow out the pilot. If you do not have an exhaust gas duct, check that the unit is positioned so that it does not blow air back onto itself from walls, furniture, etc, and ensure no other devices that move air are aimed towards the unit. The unit also needs to be placed away from central ducting, including return vents.

Hope this helps!
