Question about Air Conditioners

Have a combi boiler and the hot water from my taps are running cold to luke warm. My British Gas engineer has told me it is nothing to do with the boiler but is caused by a faulty thermostat cartridge in my shower mixer. Is this right?

Modern shower valves have an "anti scald device" in them to prevent scalding from to hot water.

They come preset at 120 degrees.

Sometimes they can start to malfunction and all you get is warm, not hot water, they can also be intermittent.

This will only effect the shower valve though, not the other faucets.

You gave a good description of the boiler--
now we need to hear the clues you have observed, as it fires (or fails to fire-- or what?)

Or as the water flow-- or doesn't flow?
As the cold water enters-- what does the flame do?
And does the flow rate reduce as the flow gets to the divert er valve?

How old is the boiler?-- and have we been using HARD water?
(Any water softener in the circuit to remove calcium and magnesium, etc.?)
Do you suspect a scaling problem in the interior parts?
If so-- can you circuit an acid thru the innards, to clean up the scale?

Please comment on what happens when water and gas flow-- so we can help you get to the next step.

I HAVE A WATER ONLY BOILER MODEL WR11E IT IS ONLY 6 MONTHS OLD AND THE PROBLEM IS THE WATER IS ONLY LUKE WARM AND NOT HOT AS IT WAS BEFORE


Turn the boiler off. Connect a garden hose to the drain bib. Shut the water supply valve off.
Open the drain bib and drain boiler. Close drain bib and open supply valve.
When boiler is full, go to the farthest faucet and open the hot water and let run.
Go back to supply valve and turn off and on a couple of times rapidly this will "bounce" sediment loose.
Repeat above twice.

When you turn hot tap on nothing happens to the boiler just cold water out of tap when heating switched on pump starts but does not ignite


I think you are working on a RV water heater.
Check the reset on the unit and turn your beakers off and on.
If you are working on a gas water heater is the pilot lit.
If you can get us a little more INFO we can help you better.

Vaillant combi boiler problem


when the tap is turned on and the water light on the boiler doesn't this means the diverter valve is not operating it could be down to low water pressure in the house this can be checked at the cold tap in the kitchen. if there is plenty of pressure then it could be the diagphram in the diverter valve is worn or split. the diagphram is only a few pounds but it depends on the engineer you get as to how much money he wants to fit it.
the egg timer symbol (or two pyramids together) is an ignition indicator turn off and on again to see if it will fire with the tap running. reset the boiler with the lower right hand control knob.

Hi,i have a vaillant turbomax combi boiler,the radiator side is working well but when running hot tap the boiler kicks in for about 5 seconds ,hot water starts to flow then boiler cuts out,water runs cold...


Which turbomax, as there a two different models. The more modern one, with the brass CPL diverter valve, located at the front left of the boiler, was very prone sticking & jamming, this would restrict flow through the hot water circuit in the boiler, and cause cycling. Vaillant actually modified the diverter. You can identify, if it is the old type, as there is a very small hole in the middle of the diverter on the old ones, probable no more than 1mm-2mm wide. The modfied one, is much bigger approx 5mm wide. If old type, replace as this usally sorts the problem

Vaillant Ecotec combi boiler - radiators working but no hot water flow to taps


David,

The fact that you're getting a little burst of domestic hot water suggests that the boiler is capable of circulating hot primary loop water through the heat exchanger, but doesn't necessarily do so when it needs to.

What seems to be lacking is a recognition that domestic hot water is now being drawn off, and that the boiler needs to fire up and divert the primary flow through the heat exchanger.

A good place to start might be the flow switch (usually in the bottom of the boiler, where the cold water supply comes in) or the electrical connections to it.
