Question about Heating & Cooling

Open Question

Does anyone know how old the Vulcan Powerhouse 135 unit would be? Have to work out if it is better to fix the heat exchange or replace it - it is a rental property which will be pulled down in a couple of years and i need to fix it as cheaply as possible.

This unit is a cooling unit only. I don't know what switch you are looking at but I don't think it's for the evap. cooler(swamp cooler). I am in the Phoenix, Arizona area and it's very common to have a evap. cooler and a seperate heat/cool system as on the hottest days the evap. cooler doesn't cool enough. I hope this helps. Please give me a positive rating. Thank you.

SOURCE: Replaced my 5-year old 3-ton 12 SEER Goodman outside condensing unit with an older 3-ton RUDD condensing unit because of lack of funds. Now the compressor has gone out on the RUDD. Is it better to rep

A new unit will be 13+ seer unless you can find someone that has replaced a compressor or has one left over from pre 2006 stock. Our wise Government with all its resources decided that we aren't smart enough to turn off the lights to save energy, so they chose to end the med and low price lines. And the same bunch of smart ones decided that now R22 because of its chlorien content being bad for the air (5% of what R12 was) so we have R410A and others that no one knows how much cancer or daMAGE THEY WILL DO OVER TIME. So now if you replace your AC unit out side with a new one be sure its compatable with the refrigerant inside and beware soem manufacturers wont stand up to full warranty if you dont buy an indoor coil and rerplace it too.

We get what we deserve in Washington DC and if our guy didnt support this stuf too many other folks guys did. We just dont talk about it enough. AND WE SHOULD. But then again you like me are probably RITCH. So we have to give up our wealth to the government so they can redistribute it and buy more votes. And we can stay working too much to talk about it.

Just burns my back side like a 4 foot flame.

Read tween the politics and you'll get my recomendation.

Buy your self a compressor and get someone qualified to install it or see if the old goodman one will interchange easily.

SOURCE: leaking from secondary heat exchanger

Hi cgcol

I just had the same problem with the same boiler and was recommended to get in touch with a company called Wolseley uk. http://www.wolseley.co.uk/servlet/reality/rscp/IN.BRADETFRMBP1?app=centers&ses=99999|47543&website=www.wolseley.co.uk
link is to their website branch locator. You need to click on parts center on the left hand side of your screen under branch locator, then put your post code in as easy as 123. The parts you need are o rings. They come as a set, their part number for the set is 459382 FROLI 39817620 ORING SET as shown on my invoice. Only cost £7.19 + VAT. Plus bought 798007 REGIN REGZ40 SILICONE GREASE 50G cost £5.47 + VAT (smallest size they do). This is to lube Orings before fitting and pushing pipes together. Make sure you have turned all stop taps off that are under the boiler and drained rads.
Hope this has been a help!

I have a vulcan compact 60 sn# 1744 cat# 38-05 aw 166 the problem is the gas burner shuts down periodically about every 4-5 min, leaving the fan still running for a further 3-4 min, blowing out...


Hi Dave, my neighbour has a Vulcan Compact 60 that is doing the same as yours, except the cycle time is even shorter, only four minutes total. The temperature in the house barely rises and never reaches the thermostat setting. Altering the thermostat anticipator does not alter the cycle time. Therefore, as you have found, the fault is not related to the thermostat. The gas technician who inspected the heater said he could see the unit was faulting, but didn't think he could fix it. WTH? To help my friendly neighbour, I have asked numerous experienced techs since and those few who actually seem to know anything have helped me piece together what is probably (I emphasise probably) happening. Current thinking is that the fan is not blowing enough air and the heat exchanger is overheating, which trips the over temp switch (limiter), cutting off the burner. Eventually the fan cools the unit down enough to switch itself off and reset the limiter, then the cycle repeats.
The remedy is to replace the fan or replace the fan bearings, if they have become tight, as is likely the case. It might also be necessary to replace the combination fan/limiter switch, because the contacts are probably arcing due to the extra current drain of the fan with tight bearings (I know this because the arcing causes TV and radio interference to myself and others in the vicinity, which interference ceases when the heater is turned off and resumes when the heater is turned on and had about 20 minutes to heat up). Important: If no action is taken, the heat exchanger can be damaged and/or cracked, especially if the limiter contacts weld closed, which will allow the heater to exceed the limit temperature and probably crack the heat exchanger. This in turn will allow carbon monoxide fumes to enter the house via the ducts. Therefore the problem should be fixed ASAP.
I am currently trying to find someone who understands this heater to the extent described above and therefore has some chance of repairing it correctly. No success as yet, similar to your own experience.
Dave, if you discover anything at all about this fault, please let me know, as I am not going to waste my money on gas techs who are unable to fix the problem because they don't understand the system to the required degree.
Parts can be obtained from many gas supply houses. The one I normally use quoted about $300 for a fan and $150 for a fan/limit switch. This seems too expensive to me. I could get a whole second-hand unit for about $300. Will try to let you know if I make any further discoveries. Anyway, best of luck. Regards, VC60.

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

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.
