SOURCE: Hi I am renting a house

It sounds like you have a problem with the part that controls the gas flow on the main burner? There is a two page manual that comes with Vulcan 260's, but it doesn't say much and there is no troubleshooting information on it. I could forward a link to that manual, but it wouldn't help solve your problem.

Your unit was made to handle 2-4 people in a moderate climate. In a cool climate, that drops down to 2-3 max. They have a full warranty for 3 years and a partial one that ends at five years.

Before calling a plummer, you might try the gas company instead. Service calls to the gas company are free. Tell the service person that your unit is getting gas to the pilot lite, but it is not enough to keep the burner flame lite. Have them see if they can clean or clear out the line supplying the burner. If its some kind of blockage or dirt/debris causing the limitation in gas supply to the burner then the gas company might be able to help you with that.

If they can't, there is no harm and the call is free.

Vulcan parts with installation instructions are readily available on the internet. You might want to try isolating the part that could be causing the problem in order to check prices and make sure that your service repair man does not over charge you. I would not suggest replacing a gas connection related item without education and experience - they are dangerous.

When making an espresso, pressure builds up slowly to optimum pressure then falls and doesn't produce any coffee. ie no pressure

I had a similar problem with mine. It turned out to be a clogged filter basket. The filter basket is double walled and build up occurs between the two layers and typical cleaning methods do not seem to work. The advice I found said to heat the filter cup by holding it over a stove burner. It will smoke some and might slightly discolor. Don't heat it so long that the metal warps other wise it won't fit back in the holder. I heated it by placing it directly on my electric burner set to medium. I left it there until it stopped smoking. Removed it with pliers and set it somewhere safe to cool. It worked for me.

Of course, you could also just replace the filter basket too.

I am getting no water from the hot side of all my faucets cold water works fine

Sounds like the water inlet valve to your hot water heater has been closed (turned off) If the tank has no water coming in, it can't put anything out.

Weatherking furnace will not ignite

Turn off power to furnace and remove upper panel only. Turn the power back on and turn the thermostat all the way up. Go back down to furnace and watch the burner section.

This is what you should look for
1)On the left hand side of the furnace near the burner, the igniter should glow red, if it glows red and shuts off without igniting the burner then you have a problem with the venting or faulty pressure switch.

2) If it does not glow red but you have power to the furnace, the ignitier is most likely cracked.

If they are just hair line cracks I would not be overly concerned,just something I would recommend that you monitor. If they spread apart a bit further you can clean and wire brush cracks as good as you can ,then wash down and allow to dry. You can use a thin coating of hi-temp furnace cement with a temp rating of 2000 degrees. Follow instructions on container and it should help. Thank you.

Leaking water all over

It could be a simple problem like the feed line from the pump to the boiler is leaking. If the unit has ever been allowed to freeze without draining the boiler your problem is serious. It could result in a blowen seal between the top and bottom castings of the boiler or worse, it will crack the bottom casting. You should be able to see by taking the white top off and observing. Remove the water tank and four screws.
If the casting is cracked it has to be disassembled and I had mine silver soldered back together. Works fine now.

If you disconnect the element wires and the machine works, but when you hook them back up it trips the circuit breaker. Your element is bad (shorted) and need to be replaced.

Burners heat very slowly, oven has to be set 50 degrees higher than desired temp. to get the right heat.

First, you should make sure the unit is set up to run the type of gas you use. If you have natural gas and it is set up for lpg, or vice versa. If it is wrong, you can retrofit it by changing out the orifices. Other than that, check your pressure at the manifold that feeds the burners to see if it is adequate. A bad regulator could very easily cause this problem as well.
