9 TIMES OUT OF 10 THE COLORS ARE THE SAME. MATCH THEM UP. FIRST LABEL THE WIRES ON THE ORIGINAL STAT, AND PUT THEM IN THE CORRESPONDING PLACE ON NEW ONE.

Central heating not working but hot water is ok.


If when you turn power off you wait a while it is probably not the central system coming on. You have a triple aquastat that maintains a temperature level needed to provide hot water. but you are not getting the thermostat to operate the central heating. The thermostat is a switch that operates by temperature. if you have tried raising the thermostat and the system did nor kick in. try jumping the thermostat terminals in the aquastat . if that works then the problem is either in the thermostat or the wiring to the thermostat. also with a electrical tester." while the thermostat is jumped" test the c1 and c2 terminals to see if power is going to the circulator. If not then you need a new aquastat. if you have power and the pump is not moving water replace it.

I have had a problem with my central heating system since the summer. The heating sometimes comes on in the middle of the night, even though the timer turns off at 11.00 pm. A plumber fitted a new timer...


Hi,
You are right you definetly have some issues there and it would seem that the "short" either messed with the brain of your heater or the critter is wired wrong.
To be totally honest for me to sit at a computer and try to assume what exactly went wrong would be totally unprofessional.
If you were my customer I would be telling you to call me the next time it acted up and let it in that state so that I could come and do some testing ti figure what the problem is... Once you reset the rpoblem goes away and I am out o luck to find it.
See if you can find someone that will come and treouble shoot that thing while it is in the failed state, that will let you know for sure hwat the issue is.

I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

No central heating back boiler


back boiler run from a gas fire? check the instructions to operate the gas heat to the back boiler not just the fire
I presume that this a fully pumped system - air lock doubtful There maybe on/off valves on the pipes to and from the back boiler [situate close to cylinder] make sure they are on - anticlockwise turn
or there could be a blockage in the outlet from header tank usually in the loft. or If there is no water in it maybe the mains cold feed it is off.
Note if no water in it DO NOT USE the back boiler

I've a problem with my central heating, I've changed my central heating programmer to a drayton lp522. My heating is constantly on. The only way that I am able to turn it of is with the thermostat when I...


Hi you never mentioned which programmer the LP522 replaced, as the LP522 is a 5/2 day programmer.

you may of wired directly to the heating on terminal on the programmer?

It may of been that you had a basic programmer which was only designed for the system you have installed.If i know what existing programmer was used i may be able to help?

Kindly

Honeywell wall thermostat


Hi,Richmart
I'm Harvey the Plumber,
First, Your question is if your thermostat is wired correctly!

Assuming that it is correct, a common problem that most people and plumbers overlook is correctly setting the heat anticipater on the thermostat.
Assuming that you have a gas central heating system, then you must simply look on the gas valve for the amp rating.
For instance,if the gas valve printing says .4 amps then set the heat anticipater for .4
It's common for the unit to turn on and off erratically (short cycling) when this setting is not correct.
If all you are worryied about is the wiring, you must look at the wireing diagram that came with the thermostat.
Further diagnoses would requie detailed information about your central heating system.
Or the alternative would be to have a hands on tech help you out.

Feel free contact me again!
