Vulcan Gas Heating Furnace Pilot Light Goes Off

Hi, I tried many times to start up the pilot light of Wall Vulcan gas heater but unsuccessful. I followed the instruction but when I release the * button the pilot light goes off too. I hold it quite long before slowly releasing the button but still did not work. Please suggest any possible problems may caused. Thanks and appreciated.

SOURCE: Pilot light won't stay lit

Look for dust and lint. Look for them in places where gas should be freely flowing. I had a similar problem with an Empire Corcho wall-mounted propane ceramic catalyst heater. First it was the pilot light, then the #2 ceramic mantle. After horsing around with the gas lines and pressure regulators and trying to re-aim the pilot, it all turned out to be dust and lint in the gas passages. A little dust bunny in the brass pilot tube gave me a pilot light the shape and color of a banana. One puff of compressed air, and I got back my razor-sharp pilot. And some dust in the chimney of the #2 burner kept it burning blue/yellow and blistering paint off the upper surfaces of the heater. A bit of cleaning with a shop-vac put that right. "Passive" heaters are very much prone to this sort of problem because they rely on convection currents (i.e. LOW velocity) to get the job done. Convection currents are notorious dust collectors, as in COBWEB CITY.

Our vulcan wall heater when trying to start when we release the button the flame goes out.


The thermocouple which senses the flame has probably failed or it could be a poor pilot flame (Dirty or partially blocked injector) Get a licensed gas Tech to service it if this hasn't been done previously.

Totai heater wont stay on after lit


Without a pilot flame sensor signal the pilot light will not stay on and the heater won't work. Try Replacing the pilot flame sensor, the pilot flame burns on to it and it connects to the valve. It looks like a wire.

Vulcan oven pilot light how to relight


Hello Lynne,
To relight the pilots,start by removing the floor of the oven,then remove the small access panel below the doors. On the main oven burner will be a small pilot burner that probably looks something like this 10_26_2011_9_29_16_pm.jpg
on the gas valve behind that small panel under the doors will be a red button,push that red button and hold it in while lighting that pilot burner...continue tohold that red button for 30 seconds,release it and the pilot should be lit.
Good luck,GENE

Cozy Wall Heaters


On the gas valve, look for a marking that indicates "Pilot". If there is no such marking, you do not have a pilot and the system is electronic ignition. Ok so if you find the pilot position, you will be able to turn a know to that position and depress the knob into the gas valve. At the same time you are depressing the knob, look for a red button that snaps when you depress it. This is a Pizo starter. If you do not have this button, look for a viewing port where you can insert a long match. Once you have the knob depressed and the viewing port open if needed) you should be able to light the pilot with the snapper or match. Before you release the knob on the gas valve, sing "Yankee Doodle". This will give the flame enough time to heat up a probe to the proper temperature and the flame should stay on. Button up any port you opened and then turn the gas valve knob to the "On" position.
