Becouse the boiler is aluminium and oxidates with time even you relese 2 screws of valve again valve dont move easy off. you need to put screwdriver between valve body and old boiler, might be needed 1 ce or 2 ce to hammer the screwdriver after that it will come out.

PS before starting replacing valve release the copper pipe that goes out from valve.

Cleaning inside central heating radiater


I'm assuming your saying you have hot water heat and you're having trouble with the broiler or stoppage in the pipes leading from the boiler to your wall radiators. Every household boiler I've seen has been very old and isn't worth replacing. If you decide to replace it, you will be replacing more than just the boiler. You'll be replacing many copper lines as well. The solution is usually changing to some alternative style heating such as electric baseboard with individual thermostats.

Burnt smell is coming from steamer wand


Boiler is contaminated with milk, check the water from the tea valve, if it smells the same or has swimmers, boiler needs to be descaled, if no floaties then removes steam wand and soak in purocaff for a few hours, then clean. Always flush ssteam wand before and after every drink.

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

Re-pressure Vaillant Turbomax Plus boiler


two pipes coming into boiler on right hand side have brass block valves with a small round recess. These two valves are linked with a stainless fill hose.

Inside the recess on each valve is a small slot, there is a "key" with the boiler but prob lost with the manual. The advantage of the key is its sized so you wont be poking it in the wrong place!

Using a screwdriver turn both slots throug 90 degrees, you will hear water running through. Sometimes one valve is left open so try a combination until the watert runs.

Keep an eye on the pressure gauge and dont let it get too high, if you have no idea of setting pressure head for about 1bar.

Hydronic Boiler relief valve problem?


Check the pressure guage. Typically the pressure in a water boiler should not be more than 20 psi. If you are approaching 30, the relief valve is doing it's job. I would replace or adjust the automatic water feed if the pressure is high. Always replace the boiler relief valve. Tap on the expansion tank, it should sound hollow. Replace it if it is full of water. If you have one of the old expansion tank that has no bladder in it, drain it.

Heats up and produces steam but the release button does not open the flow of steam.


To remedy this, I did the following:
1) Removed screws from: a) Lower area of handle (1 screw), b) Top of steamer, under round rubber flap around fill hole (2 screws), c) Front of steamer where nozzles attach (2 screws)
2) Removed back of handle, top of steamer, front of steamer where nozzles attach 
3) Once all parts are removed, you can see a brass button that is pushed by the trigger
4) Using a needle-nose pliers, grasp and rotate the button several times in both directions (you may hear it cranking against the interior spring). Do this until it turns fairly easily with the pliers.
5) Once this is done, you fill find that the brass button can be very slightly depressed with a bit of force. You may also need/want to unfold a large paper clip to push into the nozzle hole to help unsticking the brass button (not sure if that helped in my case, but it was something I tried along the way). When the brass button moves in and out (again, it won't move much), the steam release mechanism is unstuck!
6) Reassemble all parts (everything snaps back neatly into place).
This worked for my unit!
