Re: Wallas Heater

Fuel pump is located between the combustion chamber and fresh air squirrel cage fan. If the bottom panel is off the heater, the pump is visible. If you put your finger on the pump during heater startup you should be able to feel the pump pulse as it attempts to pump fuel. Should be a rythmic pulse at about 60 pulses per minute.

Re: Wallas Heater

Good news is you'll really know your heater.

I thought the same thing (fuel pump bad). Even after manual priming, fuel would not feed when furnace was turned on. However, once the admiral re-read the instructions (because apparently as a man I don't fully read instructions). She turned the heater to max and presto the fuel pump pumped fuel. No problems since.

Re: Wallas Heater

There is a Wallas dealer in Sidney. Gartside Marine

I've done business with Ben and he's a good guy.

Re: Wallas Heater

You should check the supply voltage -- it should be at least 12.6V. You might have to start the engine before starting the heater. Once it gets going and the glow coil turns off, the supply voltage isn't as critical.
