Is the switch off?

Check the fuse panel/breaker box.

Is the thermostat switch set to heat?

Is system oil heat? If so check the following...

Some systems that use oil have an emergency switch (sometimes with a red plate) located away from the unit usually the basement staircase.

The oil systems also have a heat element above the burner on ceiling that "trips" if there is excessive heat. This shuts everything down so as not to feed a possible fire with oil.

Check the gun (burner itself) and try and locate a little red reset switch located near the back side of gun. Try pushing it in to see if its tripped.

If these quick checks don't help then it would be wise to call a technician to check your system for issues. Heating systems are too critical to "play" with and problems are best left to the pros for safety's sake. Good luck, I hope this helps.

Why does it take two bowls of water before water gets hot on combi boiler


The water isn't maintained hot (unless the central heating is on) in a combi boiler. you will, therefore have to turn the water on, which activates the burner. The burner will then have to heat up the heat-exchanger which then supplies the hot water through cold pipes. Once the pipes are warm, you will receive hot water.

Possible cause of lockout: boiler low water level. If you have a combination temperature/pressure gauge, it should read approximately 12 psi when the boiler is cold. When it runs, it will be approximately 22 psi. If the pressure is low feel the inlet water supply piping. Open the manual feeder valve. The cold water coming in will verify that there is no obstruction to the water flow. You may have "dirt" in the line. You may have a defective water pressure valve or check valve. Another thought. Make sure your AIR SEPARATOR is functional. Remove the cap and depress the valve. You should see water. If air comes out, continue to"bleed" the AIR SEPARATOR. You may haven't to replace the A/S.

having found a circuit diagram, realised that the divertor valve was electrically operated.i unplugged this then unclipped the motor from the valve body,the diverter valve is spring loaded and once i'd removed the motor the spring raised the valve to divert water through the dhw heat exchanger,giving us hot water but no heating, if i refit the motor the problem comes back heating no dhw.ordered new motorised valve assembly £30 next day order .
this was a simple fix without having to drain the system down.
