Question about Air Conditioners
SOURCE: ariston micro genus combi boiler
having found a circuit diagram, realised that the divertor valve was electrically operated.i unplugged this then unclipped the motor from the valve body,the diverter valve is spring loaded and once i'd removed the motor the spring raised the valve to divert water through the dhw heat exchanger,giving us hot water but no heating, if i refit the motor the problem comes back heating no dhw.ordered new motorised valve assembly £30 next day order .
this was a simple fix without having to drain the system down.

SOURCE: ariston genus premium 24 error
Code 101 is related to connection between pcb and boiler unit.check if the electrodes are still sparking even after the gas had lit, this means the pcb is not detecting the flame and trying to relight.Try reset,
If operation is blocked, the display shows the text RESET and the relevant error code. To restore boiler operation, simply press the RESET button on the control panel. If still the same error is coming up then turn the unit off for 1 hour then restart it again and check.If still the same error is coming up then press the "INFO TOP" button on the system .Simply by repeatedly pressing the "INFO TOP" button, the user may immediately view a whole range of information which is necessary to the correct operation of the boiler.---------If the reset is not helping and still the error is coming up again then the pcb has to be checked to resolve the problem.-----------Thanks.Helpmech.

It clearly indicated the problem is the programmer.The board does not accepts the settings.In old system or short circuit system this problem occurs.Solution is to replace the control board.
Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

SOURCE: my boiler heating is working
As I understand your question, you have a boiler with a 'summer/winter' hookup for domestic hot water.
Your boiler should run all the time, i.e. not be shut off by you. Your boiler provides hot water for baseboard heat in your home ... possibly through several 'zones' each controlled by an individual thermostat and circulator. Yours may be a steam system. If this is the case, you have radiators not radiant baseboard heaters and no circulators.
Your summer/winter hookup provides a constant supply of domestic hot water. It does this by taking cold water from your water main and passing it through a copper coil which sits inside your boiler and then to your hot water main in your home. Since the coil sits in the hot water at the top of the boiler, it is constantly being heated. This coil may be in a deteriorated condition in your case or it may be too small for your needs.
Several years ago, I did a small upgrade to my mid 1950's era American Standard boiler. The summer winter hookup in my case was mounted on a 4 inch cast iron boiler plug. The coil was 12 feet long (folded up to a package about 1 foot long). I was very afraid when the plumber came in with what amounted to a 10 foot long pipe wrench. My fear was I would have a pile of broken cast iron at the end of the day. All is well that ends well. He got the old one out and replaced it with a coil that consisted of 20 feet of copper tubing 3/4 inch in size (the folded tubing was about 20 inches long and fit nicely into the boiler). We now have all the hot water a household consisting of one guy and three gals would need in all but the extremest of times..
I think you r answer is here ... replace your summer/winter coil with a new, bigger coil.
Something else I did. My kitchen is 60 feet (pipe wise) from the boiler. It takes a long time to get hot water there. I put in a small electric hot water heater just under the kitchen. I put a timer on it so it runs for a couple hours in the morning and a few hours in the afternoon. The hot water line from the boiler serves as the cold water input to the heater. I now enjoy the convenience of quick hot water in the kitchen with the relatively low cost of oil heated water from the boiler as a relatively small cost of electricity.
My winter settings are 160 - 200 and my summer settings are 120 - 150 which seems adequate for our needs.
Thanks for your question at FixYa.com. I hope I have been of assistance to you today.
