SOURCE: Can i get a new pilot light assembly for a vulcan

If you can not,do this,take a piece of 3/16 tubing,and cut it to fit over the pilot light,and make sure the tubing is cut long enough to extend into the flame of the pilot light,this will save you money,and time,most of the time the problem with the pilot light is,that it burns away over time,and does not stay into the flame .If this was helpful,please rate,thank you.

SOURCE: can't light a vulcan heritage

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

What you are experiencing is the lack of a signal from the thermocouple to the gas valve. I.e. the thermocouple is not passing heat information at all. This is caused by either a defective thermocouple, a dirty mating area where the thermocouple connects to the gas valve or... an improperly positioned thermocouple that is not "in the flame" with the pilot lit.

  • First make sure the FIRE end of the thermocouple is in the flame when lit. (reposition if necessay)
  • Next disconnect the thermocouple by unscrewing the fitting on the top of the gas valve. (No gas will come out) Clean the metal mating area as best you can and then re-install the thermocouple. Just a good snug fit. Once you feel it come snug add 15 degrees of tightening motion with a wrench.
Attempt to light the pilot... wait 45 seconds to 1 minute while holding the pilot button down before letting it up. If it stays lit.... GOOD JOB. If it goes out the next step is to replace the thermocouple. If after replacing the thermocouple it does not stay lit the remedy is to replace the gas valve. There are no short cuts and the sequence of repairs is just as I stated in order.

You can remove your old thermocouple and walk in to almost any appliance parts supply or Plumbing and heating supply to purchase the correct thermocouple without a part number. They will match it up with yours.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Describe your Problem i have a quasar vulcan gas heater pilot light is on but wont ignite. can hear it clicking trying to ignite what is the o=problem . this heater maybe about 20 years old


What do you mean by the pilot light is on but won't light. Do you mean that there is gasbut won't light. If so the spark may not be hitting the pilot properly or it may not be getting enough gas. If lighting but continuing to spark the sensor may need cleaning. This can be cleaned with steel wool (not sand paper), probably will need to disassemble the pilot asembly The pilot may also be dirty reducing gas flow. If this is the case dis-assembly will be needed and the pilot cleaned.

Noisy pilot light Vulcan Quasar 40


Simply clean out the jet tube with a fine wire, the sound you hear is the gas blowing by the irregular edges, and swirling and not mixing and producing sound waves, (Bit like a flute) So, you need to clean the tube right out, and smooth off the end again, & sorta "Countersink", Flame the end too, at the end.use a very fine needle file, and make it look like new, that will sort your problem out. Then adjust so you have a good gas flow. Also check out it isn't blocked too.

How do i light my heater pilot light? My gas was turned off temporairly but is back on and I need to relight my pilot light.


Your pilot is a spark ignition so it will start itself. You will probally need to bleed the gas line to get it to start. Do this by opening the union outside the cabinet and turn the gas on till you can smell it. Shut the gas off and tighten the union up again and let the gas clear. Then start the gas and seeif it will light at that point.

Heater does not maintain room temperature; pilot light does not always light


Hello
You may have a bad thermocouple if you have a standing pilot light.
A standing pilot light is always lit,the thermocouple feels the heat and opens the gas valve,giving a full flow of gas to the heater to burn.

Thermo couple is a small copper tube located near the pilot light running back to the gas valve.

Next you may have a auto ignitor may be made out of ballast or look similar to a spark plug,this supplie a spark to the gasflow lighting it to burn for heat.

one of these is malfuntioning,and im assuming this is why you can not maintain room temp.
Hope this was helpful

Wont light


Is there a spark? or do you need a long match? The button usually just opens the pilot so it can be lit. If its not electronic.
