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

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 - heating OK, but no hot water.


Most likey problem is the diverter valve, not energising fully. This in turn will not move the little plastic lever arm that actuates the microswitch on the side, sending the signal to ignite.

You can buy a diaghram kit from most local plumb centres, you need to replace the diaghram and seals, don't forget the silicon grease to ensure the plunger doesnt stick. Kits less than a tenner.

You should have noticed before it stopped working completely the water had reduced in temperature before the weeks it failed.

To make sure it is a diverter valve fault, depress the microswitch if you can, when the hot water is flowing and hey presto the demand for hot water light should shine.
