Bonaire gas ducted heating not reaching set room temperature anymore...

Hi, I have a Bonaire Vulcan Comfort Control 5330072 gas ducted heater which has worked find every winter for the past few years. This winter for some reason it does not seem to reach the set temperature, even when it's only 22 degrees. It ignites and blows hot air, but always stops and cuts out when the room reaches about 18-19 degrees. We have tried setting the temperature higher and lower but it makes no difference. No error code is being displayed either? If it were a new heater I would assume it just struggled to heat our space, however as mentioned it has worked perfectly in the past. Any help or suggestions would be welcome!

    Thanks Bill, no the unit has not been serviced for a while but we were hoping to troubleshoot ourselves before calling a service tech in (have not had a good track record with service techs on other appliances).
    You mentioned vermin may have caused a problem? Any suggestions where we could have a look? Otherwise might have to make that phone call!
    Thanks!

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.

hi,
The heating coil itself have some problem that's why the circuit breaker clicks off by sensing over current drop. Check the heating coil and replace it.

Vulcan ducted heating system 530 E (5 years old) have replaced AAA batteries on remote control but still not working. Thanks Michael


You have to recode the remote to the heater if the batteries have been removed for more than 3 minutes. On the comfort control will the remote is in a off state turn the heater off at the power.

While off press and hold the up button and the on/off until code appears then release buttons and turn the power back on to the heater.

When code disappears from the remote turn on the remote set the temp higher than current temp and combustion fan should start up then heater will fire up.

If not repeat process as they are easily corrupted by other remotes.

Download control manual from - http://www.bonaire.com.au/support/documentation/owner/default.aspx

Set / check fan speed or it may overheat.

Bonaire Vulcan ducted heating system flashes F08 and HC 01. What do I do?


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.

I have a similar problem


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.
