Hi, I have a Vaillant TURBOmax VUW 242/1E combi boiler. Recently the instant hot water has stopped working. Central heating is fine, but when I run the hot tap (upstairs and down) the boiler just doesn't react. It doesn't try and ignite or anything. Any clues??

Hi! If your cleaner is not steaming it could be that the steamer pump is not on, or there is no water or not enough water in the tank. I have included a link to the instruction manual. If it is still not steaming please contact customer support at 1-800-321-1134. Thanks! http://dirtdevil.com/file/235/
take the top off the header tank ( part you fill the water in) top to the top run engine until it boils or fan kicks in to cool down the engine. while it is heating up squeeze the pipes around the engine to help release the air better DONT put your hands near any moving parts. keep the water full to the top while doing this. when at temp turn off engine and leave to cool down dont add any water or do anything till it has cooled down. when cooled down top up to the mark and should be good then if not then the thermostat may be faulty. or you have a blockage some were in the system that is causing the over boiling problem also check that the fan is working and the temp switch for the fan is working all these can make the engine over heat, also when bleeding the system have the heater on number one and heat on full.
a thermostat is always located on top hose from radiator.. just follow ur hose from radiator to engine block when the hose stops then u found it i have not seen a thermostat been any where else, as i been working on cars 9 years ...
Yes there is a thermal cutoff that will shut the motor off for a period of time to protect it from getting to hot. If this is what happened after 20-30 mins. the motor should come back on and run again. If it does I would try to clean motor as best I could using a soft brush, vacumn, and blow out with air if possible. Clean fan of f as best you can to help motor run cooler.Hope this helps.Thank you
In the heat mode your furnace fan operates in a lower speed. when your zone panel purges it powers the G terminal in your furnace, which is high speed. You may have an airflow problem if your EAC is powered directly to an outlet, you may have a bad air pressure switch, or if the eac is wired to the furnace control board, it is mis-wired..more info needed.
I recently fixed one with the same problem. Remove the rear cover where the switch is mounted. (Take off the filter first) The wires have enough length that it is not necessary to remove them. Use a blow dryer and blow into the opening to remove dust and moisture from the circuit boards. Either one will make it start and stop. Make sure not to get it too hot or too close. Good Luck. I can't help you with the dealer question as I'm in NC.
If it says "Clean Cell Now" and it is a new machine, it is broken. I have six, yes six, of this model. They are all new and you shouldn't have to clean the filter/cells for a few months.
The way to clean is:
remove the white cover
remove the prefilter. Good time to clean the prefilter by removing the 2 retention clips and gently swing the prefilter outward. Clean or groom it with a vacuum. Use the upholstery brush. wash the prefilter in warm, soapy water. No Chlorine! Rinse clean with regular water. Wipe with a paper towel and let dry completely. It is okay to gently use a hair blower to speed up the drying process.
Onto the Cell.
The cell can be washed one of two ways. Either in a hot tub of water or in a dishwasher.
Wear gloves to protect your hands. Never touch the fins or wires. It will ruin them and cut you up. Use the two handles.
Use hot water and dish detergent.
No chlorine and no abrasives.
Soak for 10 minutes, then dip a couple of times to remove stuck dust/dirt/schmutz.
I have a sharper image ionic breeze hybrid gp that ran fine for years unitl it recently started sparking / arcing at the base of the grid blades and always in the same spot. I cleaned it several times but the sparking always came back and the unit went into either "drying grid" or "attention required" mode. The solution I found was to stand the removable grid in 2 inches of Pine-Sol cleaner 50/50 diluted with water for 24 hours then brush again with the cleaning brush and hot water. Presto! No more sparking.
