Canterbury Gas Works
Gallant Plumbing were called out to gas works in Canterbury recently and we sent out our best Melbourne plumber to attend the issue.
Our plumber firstly met with the client to assess the situation. The client informed the plumber that there was a problem with the gas ducted heater.
Our Melbourne Plumber got straight to work, thoroughly checking the return grille and filter, to find there was no filter present. The best plumber also checked the floor register and baffle, including the thermostat operation.
Gallant’s plumber accessed the appliance underneath the house, removed top cover, and visually inspected any obvious faults. No faults were recorded on the ignition module, however some heat stress to electrical terminals and combustion fan coil was found.
The Gallant plumber checked electrical GPO, following this, tested resistance and voltage of the existing flame sensor. Then swapped flame sensor for 2nd hand one and rechecked resistance and voltage. Checked existing burner pressure, 0.74 KPA too low.

Our best Melbourne plumber then checked the gas meter and gas meter regulator and discovered a gas leak between the gas regulator and gas meter. The leak was repaired and tested. Gas regulator had a corrosion buildup, which was cleaned, lubricated and gas pressure was adjusted.
Our plumber fixed this by setting the correct burner pressure at the gas ducted heater, 0.88 KPA.
Our best plumber then removed covers and investigated room fan for excessive vibration, insolation was found caught in the blades. Debris was removed from room fan box and fan blades, then reinstated covers and tested. Excessive vibration is now minimal.
After all this, we tested the gas ducted heater multiple times, and was unable to replicate the fault.
Our plumber then liaised with the client to let us know if the heater is still playing up or running okay.
