    we have a master bath with two sinks. After about 45 seconds, the hot water no longer works on one sink, but the other across the room is fine. If we leave the water running in both, it seems to help tremendously.

Boiler won't ignite for hot water unless heating is on.


If this is in a RV the propane monitoring valve may require more gas flow to turn on than the water heater requires. A central heating system requires substantial gas flow so when the monitoring valve opens to fire the central heating, there is enough gas flow to also fire the water heater.

After moving my gas meter from inside the home to outside and having a semi concealed meter connected we cant get the combi boiler to work properly we can get hot water and have the gas fire on but


your boiler needs a minimum gas pressure of 16 mb to light successfully. if your gas pipe has been extended it has to be able to flow enough gas. it may need upgrading to 28mm for even as little as a metre from the gas meter. if your central heating works ok when the fire is off then this is your problem

Hi, your boilers pressure should be holding 1.5 bar with the relief set about 3. If the pressure is below this the flow switch will cause the boiler to stop as theirs not enough pressure to operate. Another thing, does your boiler have an auto fill system or do you need to plug a hose in to fill it? If its an auto fill system and you lose pressure you could have a leak.

Water to hot for gas boiler boiler gos off


It could be dyslexia, but I think you want to know what may be wrong with your boiler in this case!
This is a VERY old design. The diaphragm is on the water section, this operates a switch to turn ON the pump, and a further device causes the diverter valve to divert boiler water from CH duty to HW duty.
From your description it appears that the boiler is shutting down on internal boiler water temperature (too high), your 'briefly too hot' HW symptom may be caused either by the boiler side of the secondary heat exchanger being blocked/caked in sludge, OR the DHW side of it being scaled. Either way a new or replacement (descaled) secondary heat exchanger MAY inprove things. It's not easy on these old clunk-pots, and EVERY disturbed seal will subsequently leak, so get a good supply of o-rings and fibre seals before you start ("you" being the competant fitter you employ)

Every time we put on the central heating our water runs cold


What kind of water heater do you have?
In any case, it sound like a plumber should check out system.

Do you have indirect heater that gets heat from central heating boiler?
Most indirect/boiler combo heaters have control that is set to heat the water first.
If water is not getting heated, then the control needs repair.

Do you have gas water heater with gas central heating?
The central heater may be drawing so much gas from meter, that other gas appliances are unable to function. larger gas meter or gas line may be needed.
Or if furnace and water heater vent on same chimney, the backflow from central heat could be affecting burner on water heater especially if water heater has electronic sensor that stop combustion if air quality is bad. Venting problems can lead to CO poisoning, and are a serious matter.

Pressure relief valve - replace
The internal seal gets bunged up with dirt & scale and then leaks water [pressure] to that outside pipe
To avoid draining the whole system, turn off the two central heating taps on the 3/4 pipes and then operate the valve manually and / or disconnect - only a small amount of water will escape / drip to below the boiler
Replace valve and fill as before.
If you think your system needs flushing out - now is a good time
Turn off mains electricity to boiler before starting work

The hot water and central heating wont work together


what size of gas line is going into boiler and water heater? is it black iron ? natural gas or propane? have you checked gas pressure at water heater and furnace ? if they work fine individually then you have a problem with incoming gas pressure. Call gas company and ask them if they would come out and check gas pressure.
