Repressurise Potterton Performa 24 boiler

Hi,I have a Potterton Performa 24 combi boiler - the system pressure is falling below 0.5bar, hence I need to repressurise the it.How do I go about doing this? From what I can see there are 4 taps on the under side of the boiler, and one of these lets the water back in the system to repressurise itThanks

    I have the same problem. My radiator valve was leaking which is now fixed but think I need to let water back into the system. Not sure what one it is. Any help?



    Thanks

Hope this is helpful. On my potterton 24 combi boiler it is the valve that sits the lowest, with a slight indent in the black tap. if you turn this for a short period you will hear a hiss and the pressure will quickly build to the desired pressure, when you can them turn the tap back off.

I have a Potterton Combi Puma 80e When I use the shower the pressure seems to drop and shower goes cold! except when the central heating is on shower works fine


Does the red status led in the centre of the control board come on when hot water is drawn? You need to remove ONLY the front decorative cover to see the control board, two fixing screws at the base of it. If not the boiler won't fire when the CH is off.
The trigger for this is a pressure switch, replacement of which is beyond DIY scope.

Combi Boiler pressure gauge reading 0, and radiator half on!


The first thing you need to do is to put some more water into your heating system. This is usually done by allowing water from your (pressurised) domestic cold water supply to flow into the system: On older boilers, this is done with a connection (often made with a removable hose) on the pipework just outside the boiler. Newer boilers may have a built-in connection with some sort of removable link (sometimes looks like a plastic key).

Once you've got the boiler up to working pressure (typically about 1 bar - 15 psi), you should be able to bleed your upstairs radiator properly.

This may be all it takes, though the pressure excursions you're getting when you run the hot tap suggest there may be another problem. See what happens to the pressure as the boiler heats up and cools down. There really ought to be very little pressure difference between the two conditions. If you see significant changes, this usually means that the "pressure vessel" (or in hydraulic terms, system accumulaor) has lost its air charge.

The pressure vessel is a metal container inside the boiler, usually painted in red enamel. Somewhere near the top, you will find a schrader valve (like the one on a car tyre), and you can use this along with a tyre pump to replenish the air in the top of the vessel. This will reduce your pressure transients for a while, but you need to keep an eye on it. If the problem returns, you probably need to replace the pressure vessel (or clag another one into the plumbing alongside the boiler).

Combi boiler problem


most have an overrun built in for a few minutes. if much longer have you got a room thermostat anywhere to turn down
If it never turns off check the switch which controls ON/TIMED/OFF and turn to timed or off. if it still continues on timed then it's the timer

My aristion DIA 20-24 combi boiler keeps tripping the over heat thermostat button located under the main control panel maybe 5 times a day seems to be getting more frequent


hi,

just check your water supply of your aristion DIA 20-24 combi boiler if is in constant pressure. not properly circulated water supply can cause overheating.

and manuals can help us also in proper checking. at the link below please check this out if you don't have.
