SOURCE: The hot water and central heating wont work together

what size of gas line is going into boiler and water heater? is it black iron ? natural gas or propane? have you checked gas pressure at water heater and furnace ? if they work fine individually then you have a problem with incoming gas pressure. Call gas company and ask them if they would come out and check gas pressure.

Check all your limit switches on this unit. One of them is either tripped or bad.

SOURCE: my thermostatic concealed shower valve only gives

Hi,

If the hot and cold are fitted the wrong way round then the thermostat on the shower unit cannot operate properly!

Most thermostatic mixer showers have a 'bi-metallic' thermostat, if you supply the hot to the cold and vice versa IT WILL NOT WORK.

It is like wearing the left shoe on the right foot and the right on the left! It doesn't work.

Re-install the hot and cold to the correct supply, and this will sort it.

I hope this helps.

My dad has a valliant boiler VP4 ZE15 IT IS AROUND 3 YEARS OLD IT ISNOT IGNITING I HAVE TURNED PRESSURE UP AND HELD THE BUTTON IN FOR A MINUTE. i CANNOT FIND WHWERE THE RESET BUTTON IS TO TRY THIS PLEASE...


Turn the power off at the wall , wait 60 seconds and the boiler will automatically reset.

Modern boilers are complex re safety and the boiler will only start if the exhaust fan is running and is up to speed .

The vacuum caused by the fan trips a switch and allows ignition to continue

If the pilot light does not come on it does not warm up the thermocouple which turns on the main gas valve.

If you go to the Valliant website they will supply you with a user guide

Protherm 100EC boiler not firing up


You likely have a flame sensor problem.

If you can wath the ignition proccess, see if you ever notice a flame. If yes, and it then shuts downm, you have a flame sensor failure, replace the sensor and clean the flame burners and orifices.

If no flame at all, then your ignitor is failing, or you are not gatting gas to the ignitor.

Brand new valiant condensing boiler installed will not work


Valliant boilers have software that can be used to diagnose the unit. The software can be purchased at the plumbing supply house that the boiler was purchased from. You can also get tech. service by email as well. It sound like there is an issue with the electrical controls with it. Or the controls were wired wrong.
Technical enquiries 01634 292392 or technical@vaillant.co.uk
