Incoming cold water usually connects to nipple marked with C, and/or the nipple that feeds into water filter (if unit has built in filter)
If unit has shut-off valve, then shut off is located on cold line.
If unit is operable, then turn on hot water and see which pipe gets hot ... and then cold is other pipe.
read your product manual.
Search your brand and model on internet to locate product manual.
Otherwise re-post question and include brand and model number so product manual can be located and information can seen first-hand.

I've got a Worcester Bosch boiler had a leak In the pipe On the landing so a friend emptied the boiler an I fixed the pipe but I don't know how to refill the boiler


Can you get the manual online? You have the Manufacturer info so you probably have the model number too. I found a manual on Manuals.com for my boiler so they may have yours too which will hopefully have some information on filling boiler although I realize each installation is somewhat different but that's why it's difficult to answer you question. Usually there is a manual pressure valve that regulates the water pressure in the boiler which is usually pretty low...like less than 20 lbs. The manual should tell you the pressure as well. But this pressure valve has a flip handle that comes off the cold water line to the boiler to do just what you want to do...refill it with water. When refilling the boiler (if you find the valve, you may have to purge the air out of the lines which there is a whole other process for. But you shouldn't allow cold water into a hot boiler...it could crack it when the cold water hits the hot cast iron. So make sure the boiler is cool when filling it up.
Now go try to find that manual!

Worcester 350 combi boiler on but water cold and radiators cold. Have put pressure up but made no difference. What's wrong with it?


If the inline pump is not working no hot water will flow into your radiators. The pump pushes the water in the lines to create a water flow. Increasing the pressure will not help in this case. I recommend you put the pressure back down as it usually is preset when the boiler is installed. My pump is about three feet back of the boiler on the intake line. If you don't know what you are doing I recommend getting a repair man as you could create more problems by over heating the boiler its self and blowing the electrical parts up.

Baxi boiler no water in hot water taps


If no hot water it is the diverter valve in the boiler. If no cold water the tap in the mains water supply to the boiler may be turned off

Empty boiler


Turn main water off to the water heater, it may be a valve on cold side coming in to shut off. Next turn power off to the heater and drain the tank the drain will be located near the bottom of the tank.
You will need a water hose to connect to the drain to run water outside. Open a faucet hot side to allow you to drain the tank.

Upon reinstall connect the tank up and fill tank and open up hot side on one faucet at a time to purge out air from system before turning power back on. Make sure you have water flowing from each faucet's hot side before turning power back on.

Boiler recycling when in DHC mode and water alternates hot then cold, back to hot every few minutes. Could it be pressure / flow rate.


First check pressure over 1 bar ok then-
1. check flow - is it adequate - a little less than the cold tap ok then -
2. does the boiler initially fire up on low hot flow but alternate as u say
If answers are 1. no but 2. yes then check for a furred up secondary heat exchanger
if 1. yes but 2. no [that is the water not the heating] goes hot / cold and if the boiler goes out when the water goes to cold then it's the diverter valve, either to replace or if it is one which has a internal diaphragm-replace that

Alpha 240e boiler wont fire up for hot water, will for heating


most likely the diverter valve.. when hot tap turned on the movement of the water through the valve operates a diaphragm which pushes a pin/button//switch to tell the boiler to fire up

Combi boiler no DHW


if the boiler fires when the tap is opened then the diverter valve is working ok it must be a blocked plate heat exchanger which is the stainless steel rectangular block inside the boiler connected to the pump and the mains cold water.
it will be blocked on the central heating part probably with black scale. it is possible to clean out but sometimes it is better to just change the plate. but remember to flush the system as well or the same thing will happen.
