I have a Vulcan Quasar 40 gas wall heater and this morning it starting to make a roaring/rubbing sound.........which I think sounds like the fan or fan belt. So I'm looking for a Vulcan repairer in Canberra - thoughts??

SOURCE: Pilot light won't stay lit

Try cleaning the thermal couple. Just remove the ash from around it. If that doesn't work you will have to change out the thermal couple.

SOURCE: Vulcan Quasar 40 air issue

Hi the problem you have is your heater is cutting out due to the over temp switch getting to hot the reason for this is that your fan is not working thus not enough air flow is getting through the heat exchanger to keep it cool
your heater is designed to not exceed a certain temprature so as not to become a fire risk
to solve your problem you will need to replace your fan
this will solves your problem

Have a gasfitter bypass the clock. The clock is the source of the problem. You will then have a manually operated heater.

Simply clean out the jet tube with a fine wire, the sound you hear is the gas blowing by the irregular edges, and swirling and not mixing and producing sound waves, (Bit like a flute) So, you need to clean the tube right out, and smooth off the end again, & sorta "Countersink", Flame the end too, at the end.use a very fine needle file, and make it look like new, that will sort your problem out. Then adjust so you have a good gas flow. Also check out it isn't blocked too.

SOURCE: pilot on, gas fires up, no fan comes on.

Sounds like you are talking about the indoor fan that circulates air through house. Turn the unit off and make sure the fan rotates freely. Next check the capacitor for the fan. If it looks swollen its probably bad. If it doesn't look swollen then you will need a multimeter to check it with. If that's ok then check the fan relay. Let me know what you find.

Vulcan quasar 40 shut down when fan starts up


Replace the fan thermal switch located at the top of the heat exchanger. Unplug the power first as the switch is 240V.
Available from any plumbing trade shops e.g. Reece & Tradelink
