SOURCE: Domestic oil fired central heating.

many times the feeder tube from the bottom of the tank becomes perforated. the return tube is ok most of the time . try switching the 3 8 tubes from inlet to outlet and see if problem resolved. if so the the tube down into the tank is flawed.

hi,

just check your water supply of your aristion DIA 20-24 combi boiler if is in constant pressure. not properly circulated water supply can cause overheating.

and manuals can help us also in proper checking. at the link below please check this out if you don't have.

Aquastat pops reset when reaching temp.


Aquastat cycling controls do not have a reset button. What you are looking at is a manual reset limit switch. That is a safety control set at the MAXIMUM allowable temperature for the boiler to attain. More than likely the actual cycling control is not cycling at the correct temperature allowing the overtemp condition. The cycling control will be very close in external appearance to the limit switch but it will not have the red reset button and it is wired in series with the limit control and will turn the boiler off and on automatically based on its setpoint.

Why does the reset button on the aquastat keep tripping every time boiler finished a cicle


Hi, this is because the boiler aquastat is faulty! Change it out as the contacts are worn out causing it to trip the stat. I have seen this so many times. Please let me know.

Worcester 24i boiler..how do i re-ignite the pilot light??


Overheat thermostat has tripped. If a modern Worcester need to press reset on control panel.

If older style Worcester - Pull front cover off the boiler (just above control panel flap pull the cover from both sides forward to unclip and then lift upwards to remove cover) and you will see a little brown reset button - press this back down.
However the over heat thermostat trips for a reason - was the system running on low pressure? It could be the pump is sticking a bit (dirt in the system) which can be sorted easily by adding an additive (DIY packs available at Home-base) . Or it could be the pump has completely gone. If this is the case it will trip again as soon as the boiler clicks back on.

The boiler is not heating radiators and no hot water. Any ideas? Is there anyway of resetting the boiler? If so how do I do it? Thanks in advance.


when you say not heating do you mean the boiler is firing and not getting hot enough? If it is not firing at all check t-stat to make sure it is calling for heat. also check aqua stat and low water cut-off. your low water cutoff can be reset there is a small button on the side and your boiler motor has one as well just look around it can be hard to find.

Central heating system boiling


more information required but if the boiler supplies the domestic hot water cylinder then the stat on the cylinder may be bringing on the boiler also the boiler stat may be up too high try turning it down.

Bosch greenstar 30 CDi - no central heating or hot water!


it sounds like the system was not cleaned properly when the new boiler was fitted. all new boilers need to have the pipework flushed to remove any debris scale sludge and flux from the system. this is now usually done by a power flush which is basically a big pump mounted on a big bucket and it washes the dirt out of the pipework and collects in the bucket. if this is not done the dirt will block up the small passages in the heat exchanger. i suggest the system is cleaned flush and the heat exchanger changed to help protect the boiler a filter should be fitted (for example a magna clean) if the company who installed the boiler is corgi registered then they are liable for the damages. call corgi for advice.

I have a vitodens 100-w combi boiler and tried to turn the heating on just to give it a working as was advised. However, I have no heat coming to my radiators. The boilers seems to be working as my hot...


Here's the deal: If your Vitodens 100 has outdoor temperature sensing capability, either built in or via external aftermarket control such as Tekmar or other, and the temperature outside is above warm weather shut down (WWSD), then the boiler will not operate for space heating, but will operate to make Domestic Hot Water (DHW) only. Generally speaking WWSD is facoty set at 20*C, since this is normal room temperature so the boiler will not need to operate at temperatures above this number as it is warm enough outdoors to heat the house to comfortable levels.
If your Vitodens 100 does not have outdoor temperature sensing capability then you should check to see if your room thermostats are operational and calling for heat since the boiler is only responding to this on-off control based on room temperature. (turn up your room thermostats)
In both cases you need to make sure that your heating system's distribution pump and zone valves are operating correctly.
In any case you should be calling a heating contractor if you suspect that there is a problem with your boiler and/or heating system.
Good luck.

I have a Certikin Genie swimming pool boiler that is showing the word GAS and i can smell it. What should i do?


You could try resetting this as it could be caused by several factors (blown heat exchanger being one as Karl mentioned).
Hve you tried resetting from in Service Mode ?

To get to Servce mode you need to go ino User Setup Mode first (turn off the boiler via the panel switch - then hold the Lock/Reset button whilst turning back on). Once in User Setup Mode if you rotate the thermostats all the way clockwise (it should display the software version) Then press and hold the Lock/Reset button for 3 seconds.
This should put you into service mode and it is now possible to change/reset some of the control parameters.
If you try resetting the error.

This issue may be caused if the Flue or water stat is tripped (in which case reset the stat). If th Fan resistor remains open in the circuit then you will need tsomeone out to investigate as that may cause the GAS error too.

COuldalso be the Valve coils are faulty in wich case they need replacing (agians I would get an engineer outto confirm and do that).

I'm suyou probably tried all this but just in case...

If the roblem is solved can you advise what fixed it ?

Thanks
