    i have a towel rail that is in parrellel with the hot water tank coil and that gets hot with no problems, The valve motor moves ok when switching between central heating and hot water, Is ther a chance that it may be an air lock?

    have solved the problem. It was the mechanics between the motor and thw valve shaft jamming up. flush out with WD40. It now works a treat.

If the valve runs at other times, the valve is OK. you have a relay somewhere that is not sending signal to the valve when in that mode.

Trace down all the relays for that cycle and check voltage going int, coming out, and to see if the coil is enrgised.

You can check your float switch, power to both the air handler and outside condensing unit and ensure power is present, also check control voltage from transformer ensure 24Volts on secondary side. If you are not comfortable around electricity though I recommend you call your A/C Contractor for safety reasons.

Further information would be needed to further diagnose your problem.

If you remove the cover of the valve ,you should see some screws that hold the motor head to the valve. you can loosen these screw and the head will come off of the valve body without leaking fluid. you then can try to pivot the valve stem and see if it is sticking or if the the valve motor needs to be replaced. reverse process to install. hope this helps.

I have no hot water, in fact no water at all is coming through the hot taps in bathroom or kitchen. I have cold water and the central heating is working fine. What do you think the problem might be?


is there a separate water heater for those rooms? sounds like there could be a valve turned off. or the pipes are the old style galvanized and have plugged up. does any of this help lead you in the right direction?
