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.
