Repressurizing my boiler

I have a Wocester combi boiler and it needs re-pressurizing as the grey needle is amost down to 0.

Under the boiler is a big white plastic key which I'm sure I've been told previously by an engineer that you need to turn anti clockwise for the boiler to re-pressurize however I haven't lived in the house for two years and only moved back in yesterday to find the boiler in this state. The looks like a clockwork key and says to remove it once filling is complete...

Any advice gratefully received..

How to top your Worcester combi boiler up - Gas Care.

www.gascare-heating.co.uk/topping-pressure-worcester-bosch-combination-boiler/ Aug 4, 2014 - If the needle on the pressure gauge on your boiler has gone into the red or down to zero it means there is little or no pressure left in the heating system and it needs to be topped up ASAP. So here's Gas Care Swansea's guide to refilling your Worcester Bosch combination boiler through the internal filling link.

When it reaches between 1 and 1.5 bar, it is time to turn the white knob back to the right to close the valve. Be very careful not to over-tighten. 7) Turn the filling key to the left until the arrow lines up with the open padlock and remove the key.

SOURCE: combi boiler wont re-pressurize when

Check to see if your pressure relief valve is partially open. This is about all it could be unless you are losing flame under the boiler vessel.

Thanks

SOURCE: Repressurise Potterton Performa 24 boiler

hope this is helpful. On my potterton 24 combi boiler it is the valve that sits the lowest, with a slight indent in the black tap. if you turn this for a short period you will hear a hiss and the pressure will quickly build to the desired pressure, when you can them turn the tap back off.

SOURCE: Need to turn up pressure

Hello,


Thank you for contacting Fixya.com.


The normal process is that there is a little white valve on the underside of the boiler with a safety pin holding it in place remove the pin and turn the knob until you hear water being installed when the water pressure reaches the 1-1+1/2 bar then that is ample to run your boiler so turn the tap off and replace the pin


Please accept the suggestion if it's helpful, you can also get back to us if you have any further query.


Have a nice day.

Lighting the pilot light on a Worcester 24CDi combi boiler.


Most of these boilers don"t have a permenant pilot light they have electronic ignition that lights the burner when you are calling for heat or hot water, is there enough water pressure in the boiler ( there is a small gauge on the bottom r/h side of the boiler the needle should be sitting at between 1 - 2 if not enough pressure the boiler won"t light )

I have the same boiler with a similar issue. The water is more than likley leaving the system from the pressure relief valve, which will be routed outside. It sounds like you have lost the pressure in your expansion tank, which is inside the boiler. With the boiler pressure at zero and the power isolated, the expansion tank can be accessed from a panel at the top of the boiler on the right hand side. You will see a valve on the red expansion vessel like the one on a car tyre and can be pressurised with a car tyre air pump. I think from the manual the pressure should be about 1 bar, but it depends on the length of pipework on your system. A competent boiler engineer should be able to sort this out, but it may be that your valve is leaking, or the expansion vessel has failed and the problem will occur again.

Combi Boiler pressure gauge reading 0, and radiator half on!


The first thing you need to do is to put some more water into your heating system. This is usually done by allowing water from your (pressurised) domestic cold water supply to flow into the system: On older boilers, this is done with a connection (often made with a removable hose) on the pipework just outside the boiler. Newer boilers may have a built-in connection with some sort of removable link (sometimes looks like a plastic key).

Once you've got the boiler up to working pressure (typically about 1 bar - 15 psi), you should be able to bleed your upstairs radiator properly.

This may be all it takes, though the pressure excursions you're getting when you run the hot tap suggest there may be another problem. See what happens to the pressure as the boiler heats up and cools down. There really ought to be very little pressure difference between the two conditions. If you see significant changes, this usually means that the "pressure vessel" (or in hydraulic terms, system accumulaor) has lost its air charge.

The pressure vessel is a metal container inside the boiler, usually painted in red enamel. Somewhere near the top, you will find a schrader valve (like the one on a car tyre), and you can use this along with a tyre pump to replenish the air in the top of the vessel. This will reduce your pressure transients for a while, but you need to keep an eye on it. If the problem returns, you probably need to replace the pressure vessel (or clag another one into the plumbing alongside the boiler).

Need to repressurise my worcester 28si combi boiler


most worcesters have n internal filling loop, depending on which one you have i.e CDi (left hand side, or Greenstar/ junior (high efficiency) right hand side, there ill be a void, the filling loops are black plastic with either a small grey or white knob, position your filling key pointing up, with the little noggins poiting at 3 and 9 o'clock, so it looks like your putting the key in on the wont almost. Push it up, and twist. (older worcester turn it 45 degress), newer worcester turn to the right slightly, you'll know if its in right because you cant turn it any further on the newer ones. turn the small knob anti-clockwise to let water in, unitl the reuired pressure is reached. Normally 1- 1.5bar is adequate. If you key isnt in right water will come out where the key is. So if it does it means the key isnt in right, dont panic, turn the knob off and try again. Once done, twist key back to its original position and pull out, youll probably gets a few drip out, this is normal.

Unforuntely not the most user friendly of devices if you dont know what your doing.

Good luck
