Vulcan Freeloader water heater draining at bottom

Hi. My Vulcan Freeloader has started draining a lot of water from a small tube at the base. I can hear water running about half way up the unit. Any ideas what this may be, and if there is an easy solution? The model is 69-25 (145litre)

SOURCE: Vulcan 300 Freeloader Gas Water Heater

I assume it has a pilot. Try blowing out the pilot area with compressed air or CO2. Then relight the pilot.

Dust can cover the pilot combustion air inlet and cause it to pull away from the safety generator or thermocouple. Its called an oxygen depletion arrangement on some space heaters. I assume your Domestic Water Heater has this setup as well. Even if not the thermocouple is not getting all then heat from the flame. If this doesn't work get back to me here. We'll try 1 more thing.

If this helps you please grade me accordingly. GOOD LUCK

If you are sure the coolant (antifreeze) that is not diluted with more water than necessary, but if it is diluted should shut off the system and pour new liquid concentrate (antifreeze) and water in a ratio of 1: 1

I have a vulcan freeloader 260 gas, how do i make sure it has water in the tank


The old freeloader is feed by cold at the bottom and the hot feed comes out the top. Basically if you are getting hot water out the hot tap (or any water out the hot tap) it has water in it. If you have any concerns post a new fault, I will keep a look out for it. These are great heaters, well worth looking after.
