SOURCE: heating pressure gauge goes up

yes tami
there should be a pressure rellief valve fitted.
it also sounds like the heat exchanger is blocked if the hot water is not as good as it used to be and the boiler reaches temperature too quickly then there is scale in the heat exchanger and needs to be cleaned or replaced

SOURCE: i've got a pressure problem on my glow worm 35ci combi boiler

check to see if you have a mid position valve or a 3 way valve
the mid position will give hot primary supply to both your hot water cylinder and your heating circuit if both stats are asking for heat.
you cant really get spares for these type of valves you are probably better off changing it if it is causing problems.

SOURCE: hot water boiler will not ignite

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

Check to see if diverter valve is in domestic mode or heating mode.

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.

My ideal logic combi 30+ is saying ignition lockout and my radiatiors arent heating up as well as my water not turning hot. How can i fix this please?


Lockout is a safety feature. Usually a latching condition and needs to be investigated rather than blindly reset. (The Combi has a bit more intelligence.) With the ignition locked out, you can't hi-fire the boiler, so no hot water of either type. The 'L' should also show a code number - check your user manual (google) for more guidance.

I've had a lockout on a non-combi: it was caused by lack of circulation of central heating water through the boiler.... The system boiled and the trip tripped. The pump WAS running, but wear in a valve actuator resulted in the valve feedback saying valve open while it was physically shut.

Boiler won't ignite for hot water unless heating is on.


If this is in a RV the propane monitoring valve may require more gas flow to turn on than the water heater requires. A central heating system requires substantial gas flow so when the monitoring valve opens to fire the central heating, there is enough gas flow to also fire the water heater.

How to use Central Heating only on an IDEAL W2000 CF50 boiler


you should have a programmer that will let you have the hot water and heating on or off . You could have a motor rised valve on the system which controls both . depends on what system you have . Fully pumped of just pumped on the heating side .

Er3 flashes hot water will not reach set point


Had this happen to me before, if you have hot water from the boiler going in and out of the boiler mate and the temps are not rising within the hot water means more than likely you may need to remove exchanger and clean sediment off element, basically sediment creates a blanket over the heat source causing poor thermal conductivity. Things to check before removing heat exchanger

- outlet temp of boiler water to aquamate -inlet temp of boiler water to aqua mate= 20-30'F if low then bad thermal transfer or poor water movement
-make sure sensor is reading properly
- get boiler temp higher to speed up thermal gain in water heater

Valient combi boiler is not heating the water properly


vailant boilers are one of the best on the market and should last you more than 6 years depending on installation and servicing.
the engineer you had should not have replaced the diverter valve if the boiler was firing up when the taps are opened. if you was getting luke warm water with the boiler alight it is a classic symptom of a blocked plate heat exchanger on the central heating side.
a new heat exchanger can cost around £100 depending on the age and model of the boiler.alteranatively it could be descaled but may clogg again. it would be a good ideal to fit a magna clean filter on the system to help prevent further debris if you have a dirty system .if you don't trust your engineer i suggest you ask another. find out if he is registered first and don't pay until you are satisfied with the work. if you are asking the same engineer back try and get a discount off the work as he has failed to rectifiy the original fault and fitted the wrong part due to wrong diagnostics. if he is registered you can complain to the governing body ie corgi or gas safe register.
good luck.

Hi Jurgie,
I'm Harvey, the Master Plumber,
Happy to render my assistance.

This is your problem!
When you are switching on the boiler it ignites for 8 to 10 seconds, then it cuts off and the lock out lamp comes on. Pressing the reset button or turning on the hot water tap has the same effect.

I need to get the make and model of your specific boiler to give you an accurate answer!
Waiting for your response.
Harvey, your Master Plumber.
