Why can't i fill my boiler


You didn't specify what kind of boiler you have. Some low pressure steam boilers have a manual fill valve as well as an automatic float switch valve. Hot water boilers have a pressure reducing valve that constantly monitor the boiler pressure and maintain 12 to 18 PSI for the safety of the boiler. If the boiler runs out of water there is a good chance it will rupture and become unrepairable. If you are saying your boiler won't fill, and its a hot water boiler, the pressure reducing valve is probably blocked with sediment and needs replacement. The valve is in the water line that feeds directly into the boiler return line from city water. Hope this helps.

I have an old solid fuel fire with a back boiler behind it...the pump is making a buzzing noise....some radiators hot some not...please help


Tell us more: What is the Solid Fuel?-- Coal?-- Wood? Is this a Steam boiler?- or a Hot water boiler?-- It sounds like Hot water, for you mention a pump-- Perhaps it is a Hot Water Circulation pump?
Does the Boiler have a sight glass?-- What is the water level?
Tell us more, so we can help you figure things out.

I need a diagram for an indirect hot water system heated by a solid fuel boiler and an oil boiler


If you are using more than one heat source you will have 1 more pump than the heat source pumps Main pump = SYSTEM pump pumps through the indirect hot water system and back into itself. This is the system loop. The other two boilers tee into this loop upstream of the indirect tank, downstream of the SYSTEM pump. The cold water return to each boiler tees into the system loop next to and upstream of where the hot water for that boiler tees into the system the loop. The oil boiler will have its own pump on its return line from the sytem loop and the solid fuel boiler will have its own pump. When any boiler fires, it turns on its own pump AND the system pump. If you want a drawing email me -pipesster@gmail.com send a fax number and I'll fax you a drawing.

Amtrol water heater WH-7P gets barely warm water


From what you are saying it sounds like an issue with either a circulator pump or a zone valve. It depends on what type of system you have ... if you have a circulator pump that only runs the Amtrol then that is probably bad. If you have a zone valve system then it is probably the zone valve if you still have heat for the rest of the house. If you have no space heating then it is probably the circulator pump.

I can only get hot water when i turn the heating on! the boiler is a sime super 90 plus (so it says on the front). i have turned all the radiators in the house off, am i causing damage doing this?


It sounds like you have a bad aquastat, if you have steam heat, and you have closed off the radiators, it will not cause a problem, it will just shut off when you build a couple psi of pressure. I would not recommend the same on a hot water boiler, because it could cause problems if you start making steam. Hope this helps.

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

Open vent central heating


yes it is possible toupgrade the system to a sealed one using a system boiler as you mentioned. the thing to bear in mind is to upgrade the radiator valves to pressure rated ones 10bar.
The probable cause of the over heating is down to the system being sludged up/cold feed blocked, or possible pump circulating problem?
I would recommend the installation of a magna clean filter to help keep the new boiler clear from system debris.I would definately power flush the system, if the system is a twin two port valve system then a automatic bypass should be fitted, all of this done by a corgi registered gas engineer
