Vulcan oil heater

I have a fairly old Vulcan oil heater (it was installed in May 1970). . The model could be 10-05, (the serial number is: 29403).. When I was giving it a clean up, I accidentally pulled off all the leads from their push-on terminals, and I'm not sure where they go back. Can anyone supply me with a schematic wiring diagram that even a fool could follow? My e-address is: ruglen@tpg.com.au Thank you. John.

    Almost exactly the same problem as John. If it is possible to obtain the schematic diagram he received & hopefully get it working again.

    Hi, my vulcan has given us years of trouble free service but recently it will not lite off, the red lite comes on and the fuel filter is clean, if you could pass on a copy of the circuit diagram so i can troubleshoot the unit that would be greatly appreciated.

    30 Year old Vulcan Oil heater that is not lighting up but only smoking when attempting to switch it on. It has been working well until this just happened.

    It's John again. The Vulcan heater is working 100%, but ONCE AGAIN we have run out of oil, and the prices they are charging to fill the tank are totally beyond a joke. My pension just won't stretch to filling it any more, so it's now plenty of clothes and blankets if we're watching T.V. But there are probably people a lot worse off than I am, so what's the point of complaining?. .

Regarding the wiring on my ancient Vulcan oil heater...I have only just received a wiring diagram (dated January 1969), which I am just about to get stuck in to. I hope that I can follow it (the drawing looks like the last copy of something that's been copied 1,000 times before on one of those old Roneo, wet ink, wind-it-by-hand copiers). The drawing came from a Vulcan agent on the very far side of Adelaide. Here's hoping. Ooroo, John. .

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.

Runs for 2 minutes well then shuts off and smokes - a 50,000 btu serial #7581 - fairly old


I would suggest calling Portable Heater Parts at 1-800-362-6951, you will need your model number and a description of the problem and talk to their technical service department for assistance and to order replacements parts for this unit. Let me know if you need more assistance.

I had a vulcan central heating unit that was made in 1990. Could you please tell me what the model number is on a 1990 vulcan central heating unit. Thanks, Rob


Hi Rob, The number you have listed AUW230A may be the model number. You say its a central heat so, If it is a package unit, the model, serial, and all of the ratings would be on the unit near the elect box on a package unit.I do know by the # you gave me it is a Vulcan 3000 watt thermostatically controlled Immersion heater. Here is a link I can give you, they deal with this heater for parts Ect. that maybe of help to you, it is www.grainger.com. There are many model # and I believe this is it, AUW230A. I hope this helps Rob, Sincerely,
Shastalaker7

Vulcan oil heater


1. Check electricity is on.
2. Check oil is in the tank and valve turned on.
3. Switch the fan off at the bottom left hand corner.
4. Switch oil knob to No.1.
5. Set Air knob to No.3.
6. Operate re set button (right hand corner of heater under settings dial). Either press in until it clicks or if the pull out version pull out until it clicks.

Wait - ignition should take place in a few minutes and flames will appear on the left of the burner under the radiants.

You should get occasional yellow crests above the pure blue flame just visible below the top row of burner holes under the radiants.

After the red warning light goes out you can adjust to higher settings.

The radiants do not glow on low setting.

You can adjust the heater on to higher settings but this should be done gradually - no more than 2 settings at a time.

Some warnings:

* The unit must be correctly earthed.
* Do not use anything except heater oil.
* Never attempt to re-light the heater when it is hot.
* If the red light does not appear when the oil knob is switched on, immediately turn the oil knob off. Reasons include: Heater is too hot; Electric plug turned off; failure of ignition system.

Good luck - no responsibility taken for the advice (but it is largely copied from my Vulcan heaters instruction manual which I still have (installed in 1967).
