Vulcan Quasar 40 air issue

Hi,

Our Vulcan Quasar 40 was merrily working until suddenly it started playing up. The first thing I noticed was that the top of the heater was getting hot, and then after a few minutes the entire unit would stop. I assume the unit is stopping due to the thermostat, however what I did notice is that no air is coming out through the air deflectors.

I am guessing it may be blocked or similar so heat is going up into the heater and due to the thermostat is quickly just turning itself off and then on again. Any thoughts on how to fix this?

Hi the problem you have is your heater is cutting out due to the over temp switch getting to hot the reason for this is that your fan is not working thus not enough air flow is getting through the heat exchanger to keep it cool
your heater is designed to not exceed a certain temprature so as not to become a fire risk
to solve your problem you will need to replace your fan
this will solves your problem

Hi, Joe and the usual suspects are:
1. Spark plugs in bad condition or have an improper gap or are partially fouled.
2. Spark plug cables in bad condition.
3. Battery damaged or nearly discharged, should have 12.5 volts.
4. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
5. Throttle controls not adjusted correctly.
6. Water or dirt in the fuel system.
7. Water or dirt in the carburetor.
8. Intake air leak.
9. Fuel tank vent hose and vapor valve plugged, or fuel line closed off, restricting fuel flow.
10. Choke valve inoperative.
11. Engine lubricant to heavy (winter operation).
12. Ignition is not functioning properly (possible sensor failure).
13. Faulty ignition coil.
14. Valves sticking.

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.

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.
