SOURCE: Vulcan Ilec central heater main burners turn off after few second

Flame rollout sensors, overheat thermistor, air proving switch, bad earthing, blocked flue. Any of these things can cause your problem. If its a permanent pilot, is it clean burning?? If electronic ignition, is the flame rod clean i.e. no carbon or rust etc.. Safest bet is a qualified gasfitter take a look at it.

I just went into the Bonaire website and downloaded their FAQ on gas ducted heating from their support link. Their instructions are pretty easy to understand.

SOURCE: I had a vulcan central heating unit that was made

Hi Rob, The number you have listed AUW230A may be the model number. You say its a central heat so, If it is a package unit, the model, serial, and all of the ratings would be on the unit near the elect box on a package unit.I do know by the # you gave me it is a Vulcan 3000 watt thermostatically controlled Immersion heater. Here is a link I can give you, they deal with this heater for parts Ect. that maybe of help to you, it is www.grainger.com. There are many model # and I believe this is it, AUW230A. I hope this helps Rob, Sincerely,

SOURCE: can't seem to ignite pilot on a 30 year old vulcan

Hello,
It's probably just a dirty pilot orifice (or a spider web), if it's been off since last winter. Try using a can of compressed air with attached straw (like you use to clean computer keyboards) and blow out the dust from the pilot orifice in the pilot assembly, which is where you light it. That should do the trick. Good luck! Douglas

Obviously a direct short. Take pic, remove all wires, replace fuse. Wire by wire, turning power back on each time until fuse pops. When it does, there's your problem.

Bonaire vulcan comfort control


No it cant really be fitted as the evap system uses much larger duct and also in some cases people use a different type of duct that when running a gas heater threw it it tends to melt with the heat. Your best option would be to get new ducting that way you can size it correctly so you dont have air alance issues down the track.
