Machine no longer produces hot water. After my (stupidly) leaving the heat on for a 10 hour period.

    My machine has worked perfectly for 6 years but now the orange light does not come on when the machine is switched on and the boiler /water is not heating up. However if the steam button is switched on then both the light and boiler work correctly. Am I right in assuming the 110 degree thermostat is not working? Is there a way to test it? Will replacing the thermostat solve problem or are there other solutions?

    Mine works fine, but the water is not as warm/hot as it used to be.

Combi Boilers Waste Energy


Combination boilers are called just that because they combine your hot water production and your space heating together with one boiler. The problem lies in the way that they produce hot water. To make the water hot, these boilers have a coil inside the chamber that the water for the space heating is held. The heat is transferred through the copper coil wall from the one water to the other.

The heat transfer of the efficiency of the transfer is not the problem. The problem is that you have to keep the boiler hot all of the time to make sure that you will have heat to make the water hot when you need it. To compound the problem you will find that boilers are typically very poorly insulated. The amount of heat that you will lose because of this poor insulation is unbelievable.

You have or are thinking about buying a Combi Boiler. Read this first because I will explain to you why you either have or are going to make a very big mistake.

Rather than go with this method of water heating, set up your boiler with a separate zone for an indirect water heater. Indirect hot water heaters transfer heat just as effectively, and they are usually very well insulated. The temperature drop in these indirect tanks is typically less than 1 degree F per hour. That’s not very much!

Keep in mind that even though this setup may cost you a bit more up front, that in the long run you will be saving more everyday. With the price of heating fuels going up daily you can bet that the indirect tank will pay for its self in a very short period of time.

I have a scunci ss 1000 hand held steamer cleaner. Its been used and given to me from a friend. The steam comes out the trouble is the steam is not hot, just luke warm. how can I fix it myself.


Try descaling it with CLR. Add CLR and water, turn it on but not fully to produce steam, just get it hot. Leave it for an hour. Empty that out and out some more in. Get this up to steam for 10 minutes, switch off, leave it for an hour and empty it. Fill and rinse out twice. Fill with water and see if it is fixed.

I assume there is a power 'On' light. If it is lit and no hot water is produced... the odds are the heating element is blown. If No 'Power On light' then change the fuse in the mains plug.... simples

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
It is possible that the heater has been taking longer (and longer) than it should to heat the water to the correct temperature. This could be that the element is coated in calcium. I suggest you run the contents of a couple of sachets of proprietary limescale removing powder/fluid through it. The most efficient way is to put the contents in an empty washer and pour a kettle of hot water into the drum then leave overnight. In the morning run just a spin; the water mix will then go through the drain filter and drain motor impeller blades, doing absolutely NO harm whatsoever! Worth a try before having to call an engineer! In fact worth a couple of tries ;-0)
Good luck,
John C
