Vulcan pyrox wall heater has f1 fault what is f1

Posted by on

  • Paul Jun 14, 2016

    Hi I have had problems with this heater for 7 years. Guess I shouldn't have bought it off a plumber...
    It's always got f1 errors. I pulled out the fan and cleaned out all the dust. I also cut off the bottom green capacitor sensor altogether and then rejoined it. I leave this on the outside of heater with the resister fully out of the circuit. When it stops ( which it still does but at least it pumps out 5 mins of heat) I untwist the wires to re enable the "faulty" capacitor - and this enables the fan to start again.. Sounds really dodgy but it sort of works for a bit?
    Any better suggestions on how to fix?

SOURCE: I have a pyrox vulcan

Hello Chilly - First I'd like to know if this is a new unit or one that has been working until now.

If it had previously working are these the steps you're going through to start it?

START-UP SEQUENCE 1. Press the ON / OFF button. 2. Raise the temperature to HIGH so that the heater calls for heat 3. Within 10 seconds the gas valve will open and the sparker will function. Ignition will commence on a low gas rate and move to high fire after 3- 5 seconds (if high is selected on the control) 4. Within 5 seconds the flame sensor will prove the flame. 5. The fan will not operate until the fan thermostat switch has sensed temperature rise. This may take 2 or 3 minutes. 6. The fan will then start on a low fan speed and after 3 - 5 seconds move to high speed (if High is selected on the control)

If that is or is not what you have been doing let me know and we'll go from there.

Regards,

Mikeywaf

Does Vulcan Pyrox gas wall furnace have a filter? It seems to cycle on and off too often and the gas seems too high. Also it makes a bang when reigniting. How can I turn the gas down inside it?


get it serviced by a licenced gas fitter / plumber. Should be serviced every two years. Don't risk your life via carbon Monoxide poisoning get a licenced gas fitter /plumber to assess the unit.

I was able to fix my Pyrox ducted gas heater (flashing between HC01 and F08 by pressing the reset button on the main PCB located in the main heating unit.
The reset button is located next to a set of indicator led's. It's easy to get to by just removing the covering shroud.
