Vulcan freeloader hot water heater

After my heater got flooded from heavy rain my pilot light went out. I am able to relight the pilot light and the heater operates fine but after a while the pilot light goes out. I have to relight my heater every morning and evening as the pilot light has gone out.

    Same problem but heater has not been flooded. This is more like the pilot is not keeping the flame detector capillary hot enough. Does the flame burner tip ever need cleaning ? htr is 8 yo and have already tried to cln the pilot hole but is v/v small. htr can run for two or three days before needing re-light. Hidden pilot flow adjusting screw is set at maximum and plenty of gas is coming from the gas regulator unit pilot outlet tube.

    Yeah i'm having the same problem, it just keeps going out. Also the peizo ignitor wire seems to have been disconnected. Where should the wire be attached to? Is there somewhere online where i can see a diagram or instruction manual?

Maby to much gas is going to the pilot causing flame lift-off get a gasfitter to check working pressure, flame position, blocked pilot injector, oversized pilot, windy location.

Could be moisture in the gas supply line - get your gas fitter to purge the line at the meter.

Rheem NatGas hot water heater model 41V50, basement flooded pilot went our how do I relight?


At the controls there should be a knob that says " Pilot"... "ON" Turn the knob to pilot and hold it down while lighting the pilot lite. Keep holding it down until it gets warm enough that when you leave it up the pilot stays on. Once the pilot lite stays on on it's own turn it to on.

First turn the dial on the hot water heater to the off position and wait for 5 minutes. Then turn the dial on the water heater to the pilot position. Press in the dial and use a gas grill lighter, long wooden match, or similar device to light the pilot. Once the pilot is lit, continue to hold in the dial for about 1 minute then release and turn the dial to the temperature setting that's comfortable for you.

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.

I have a vulcan freeloader 230 gas hot water system. the pilot will not stay lit. and some times when i do get the pilot lit, it will not ignite the main burner until i have lit the pilot a few times.


Clean the pilot assembly if has any orange at the tip. If its burning clean and blue, then its most likely the thermocouple. Safer to get a gasfitter to check it out.

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
