SOURCE: Have a 20yr + old vulcan gas heater and I cannot turn pilot off

Hi, If you are talking about the knob on a gas valve that you use to light the pilot and turn it off also, you have to turn the knob either ccw or cw to turn it off. To light the pilot is when you turn the knob to pilot and push down and hold it, light the pilot while you continue to push it down for a minute, and then slowly release it and pilot will stay lite. So, if this is the type you have just turn knob one way or the other and it will shut off. If you do not have this type set up, just turn off the gas to the furnace at the flex line as there should be a hand valve by code and by law that supplys gas to you're furnace. You can shut it off there and the pilot will also shut off.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7
PS If you don't have either one of these shut off's, on the main gas valve it self, you should have a place marked pilot adjustment. Pop the small chrome cap and insert a very small screw driver to turn it cw to shut off pilot.This would be you're last choice.

SOURCE: pilot on, gas fires up, no fan comes on.

Sounds like you are talking about the indoor fan that circulates air through house. Turn the unit off and make sure the fan rotates freely. Next check the capacitor for the fan. If it looks swollen its probably bad. If it doesn't look swollen then you will need a multimeter to check it with. If that's ok then check the fan relay. Let me know what you find.

SOURCE: Hi I have Vulcan

When on, Is the pilot strong and blue flame? If its yellow the flame is being pulled away from the T/couple or Pilot generator it will cause the unit to shut down.If the pilot light is strong it could be the T/couple or pilot generator.
It could also be the high limit switch kicking the pilot off but that's usually the case.
you should have atech look at the problem as there are other reasons that could effect its operation

SOURCE: Hi, Vulcan " burwood " gas space heater.I have

As long as the burner works it is unlikly that the thermostat is your problem. It is more likly the fan limit switch needs replaced.Unfortunatly I am having no luck finding a wiring diagram for this model so I can't tell you where it is at,but I think that's the problem. Thank you. Sorry I'm not more help

Pilot lights but won't stay on in my older style vulcan space heater. thermo couple was replaced last year.any ideas that i could try thanks


Most common cause of pilot light problems is air movement. If your space heater exhausts gas through the roof, ensure the cap is on and level. If not, outside air movement will blow out the pilot. If you do not have an exhaust gas duct, check that the unit is positioned so that it does not blow air back onto itself from walls, furniture, etc, and ensure no other devices that move air are aimed towards the unit. The unit also needs to be placed away from central ducting, including return vents.

Hope this helps!

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.

Pilot light


Hi the thermocouple is a long copper wire that goes back to the gas valve from the pilot .

i would clean the flame senser first , then check the pressure switch jump this out , then check the fan control or snap disc jump this out see if it runs if you need A THERMOCOUPLE then honeywell universal will do

the regulator IS not only the issue, but it's a major safety benefit,..the pilot flame is non adunstable..get a cheap regulator(like the ones for the outdoor bbq's)
