Hi,

You have a faulty diverter valve, this is a fiddly job, you need to call in a 'Gas Safe' engineer to diagnose and replace this

I hope this helps

Vaillant ecotec plus 824 problems


The Symbols should be there whenever the boiler is in use, it confirms the pump is running and the gas valve is open...i.e firing.
the pump overrun may come on after a firing to dissipate excess heat and is what it says, i.e the pump continues to run to keep the hot water moving to prevent the boiler from getting noisey. Sometimes you may see a radiator symbol which means the boiler is doing a 'heating' cycle as against hot water.

Have a ecotec 824 plus boiler the bar goes upto 2.7 and stays round 1.5 when not operating,what is causing this?


Sounds to me like the expansion vessel is not working correctly. When the boiler is on the water gets hot and expands into the expansion vessel but if the vessel is not working the pressure will rise and will eventually escape through the pressure relief valve.

I need to power flash a vaillant boiler. can you please help. water goes hold and cold, sometime the heating stop but the water works and vice versa. i was told by an engineering that it needs power...


Hi

Although not a PC problem, i have had this same issue on my Vaillant Boiler, the problem you are describing is not a power flush problem, you need to clean out your exisiting diverter valve or purchase a new one

The diverter valve is repsonsible for either providing hot water or providing hot water to the central heating, when this valve gets stuck in between the symptoms you have described above occur

I would also not recommned that you do a power flush yourslef as you may end up damaging the boiler and its pump

Vaillant boiler no central heating but hot water ok


Could be a lot of things, but the issue appears to center on the heating circulation system. Possible causes I can think of:
  1. Thermostat setting is incorrect
  2. Thermostat is failing
  3. Main circulation pump for heat has failed
  4. Valve for heat circulation is closed

F22 on my vaillant boiler turbo max


Hi Guy's,
The answer is that your system is out of water pressure.
Usually there is a nob on the right under the base of the unit near to the small dial to the right of the front cover.
To enable the system to work correctly the needle on this dial should be in the Grey, about midway position.
Currently with fault F22 this will be lower to below the Grey and on the needle.
To bring the pressure back to the correct position, you need to turn this nob until you hear the water entering the system, KEEP AN EYE ON THE DIAL AND TURN THE WATER OFF AGAIN WITH THIS NOB ONCE THE DIAL IS IN THE CORRECT GREY POSITION AS MENTIONED ABOVE. DO NOT OVER FILL THE SYSTEM. I suggest you check this every six months or so.
Once this is corrected your unit will light up again.
Best of luck. Mike. N.
