How do i turn off hot water supply from this boiler, need to change bath hot tap valve

You turn off the mains water valve (usually under kitchen sink) so no more water enters the property. Then you run all the taps to drain the system. When you've finished just turn the mains back on. Or if you have a modern bathroom most water inlets / pipes to the taps have their own isolator value so you just need to turn that off.

How to remove airlock from hot water system

At the boiler should be a purge setup. This consists of a valve to shut the zone off, and downstream of that valve is a drain ****. Attach a hose to the drain ****, and with the boiler running, close the valve and open the drain ****. (Turn the heat up on one zone at a time if you have multiple zones.) You should be able to notice when the air comes out of the hose by hearing it and the hose twitches and jumps when large amounts of air come out. After the air stops coming out, open the valve , close the drain, flip the bypass closed, and let the water circulate, then reapeat procedure. Do this until you hear or see no more air. You can run a long hose outside or you can use a bucket and a short hose. Using the bucket allows you to actually see the bubbles of air, but you will be dumping many buckets before you are done. Most boiler feed valves have a fast fill lever that bypasses the slow 12 psi that the boiler is normally fed at. Using this will speed up the purge considerably, but don't forget to flip the lever back down between, and after purging or the boiler relief valve will blow off and make a mess. Good luck!

Baxi boiler 80E low pressure on boiler how to fix it?

Silver flex hose may be the (correct) filling loop. There may be a valve at each end of it, maybe just one at one end.
Open the single valve slowly and LISTEN for the sound of water entering the system, and LOOK for signs of the pressure gauge rising.
On the dual valve version open the first, then open the second slowly as above. Close both valves when pressure is adequate. Adequate is determined by the specifics of your system, but note that more pressure DOES NOT mean better showers, etc.
It should only take a few seconds to top-up, any longer indicates a significant loss of fluid from the system.

Water dripping out of external pipe from ideal classic fxff boiler hwta is how do i fix it

Do you find that the boiler water pressure drops over time?
Then replace the pressure relief valve. You'll find it in the lower part of the boiler connected to that external pipe.
Close off the water pipes to & from the boiler and then replace
On some you can dismantle the valve and clean the scale from the inside and it works again - but not always 100%
It's either this or the fill tap/valve is not turned off fully

How do i drain my system i cant find a valve on any of my radiators its a combi boiler is there a draining system on the boiler

some boilers drain via the emergency relief valve [usually a spring loaded red knob to twist or a lever ] others have a small drain tap under the boiler just poking out of the base plate. Remember to turn off the mains input.

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).
