move the collar away from the orifice for a blue flame. too little air causes incomplete combustion so you get the yellow tinging

Does Vulcan Pyrox gas wall furnace have a filter? It seems to cycle on and off too often and the gas seems too high. Also it makes a bang when reigniting. How can I turn the gas down inside it?


get it serviced by a licenced gas fitter / plumber. Should be serviced every two years. Don't risk your life via carbon Monoxide poisoning get a licenced gas fitter /plumber to assess the unit.

I have a Vulcan Ultra 21E ceiling ducted unit The LED flashing fault is no 8 which is a gas interruption. The unit fan runs, ignition starts full flame and gas flows for about 2 secs then shuts down The...


Just been thru a similar problem with my Climate Technologies Vulcan High Efficiency Ducted Gas heater which in this case is installed under the house. This heater is about 7 years old and I have previously (2 years back) refurbished the controller by replacing the main power supply electrolytic filter capacitors.

I also had a communication problem with the Touch pad Thermostat which in the end required replacing the entire touch pad as one of it's voltage regulators had gone intermittent (Touch pads are available on E-Bay). To operate the heater while the touch pad was out of commission I installed a manual switch between the heat contacts on the heater controller. Closing the switch causes the heater to permanently run if it has no thermostat. Once communication with the touch panel was restored we were able to try and find the intermittent heater fault.

Again I have been getting Fault Code 08 "Gas Interruption" however the heater was lighting OK and then going out after about a minute or so. In the end I found 2 distinct heater faults.

Fault 1 was the flame sensor where the weld between the wire and flame probe rod had broken but it was still touching. This meant it was sensing Flame OK and then later would go open with expansion as the temperature rose. I fixed this by replacing the Flame Probe with a new one sourced from Reece HVAC.

At this point I celebrated thinking it was fixed!

Fault 2 after the flame sensor issue was cleared the fault still persisted but slightly less often.
The heater was cycling 3 times to get going and then locking out, requiring a reset from the touch thermostat or heater controller board. Sometimes the heater would achieve a onging burn for a long period, and other times just locking out after 3 tries.

Careful observation of the flame, through the observation holes after it lit, showed correct flame sensing but as soon as the nominal 65C duct temperature was reached the combustion fan (modulates) throttles back too far and the flame goes out, the flame sensor switches off and gas valve is then closed. The pressure differential across the burner manafold controls the Gas flow rate so if the combustion fan goes too slow the flame goes out due to lack of gas.

On the control board there is a potentiometer marked "MIN GAS RATE" this needs to be tweaked clockwise until the burner remains lit when the nominal 60-65C duct temperature is reached. Don't turn it up too far or the heater may not throttle back enough and end up going out on overheat.

Once a stable flame is achieved when throttled, try the heater in the economy mode which uses a lower recirculating fan speed and check the flame still remains lit. My problem was most obvious in the Econ mode.

Hope this helps someone else - It took me over a year to solve this one. NeilP

Just installed a vulcan oil heater, but when you start it up it will only burn yellow flames and keeps going out and will smoke, then relight with a bang,


Sounds like you may have the wrong size tip on your oil burner. A yellow flame indicates too much fuel not enough oxygen.

Bonaire Vulcan ducted heating system flashes F08 and HC 01. What do I do?


I was able to fix my Pyrox ducted gas heater (flashing between HC01 and F08 by pressing the reset button on the main PCB located in the main heating unit.
The reset button is located next to a set of indicator led's. It's easy to get to by just removing the covering shroud.

Can i get a new pilot light assembly for a vulcan cx 90 ducted heater


If you can not,do this,take a piece of 3/16 tubing,and cut it to fit over the pilot light,and make sure the tubing is cut long enough to extend into the flame of the pilot light,this will save you money,and time,most of the time the problem with the pilot light is,that it burns away over time,and does not stay into the flame .If this was helpful,please rate,thank you.

Goodman Dependable 92, ignitor and fan comes on for 3 seconds, furnance does not turn on. Goes through 3-4 cycles, then shuts down furnance. If it is the flame sensor, where can one buy parts?


Do the burners come on? If so then yes it probably is the flame sensor if not then there is another issue not the flame sensor. The flame sensor could just be dirty take the flame sensor out and clean it with a piece of emery cloth or lite sand paper and put it back in and this should get the burners to stay on.
