Baxi duotecHEa 40kw combi boiler made loud banging noises for 2 or 3 minutes then stopped. What might have been the problem


the banging is the water boiling/overheating Check the pump is working by undoing the large screw on the front of pump and gently putting a soft stick into the space behind to check that the rotor/impellor is turning. take care to catch the water which drips from the screw hole

Water not going into well water tank


Is the pump running when power is ON?
Put ear against pipe and listen for pump.
Have you installed a check valve?
Check vlave lets water pass through the pipe and enter tank, but the valve closes after pump shuts off and keeps water from falling back down into well.

I HAVE A 50 GALLON 5YR OLD RICHMOND HOT WATER TANK SOMETIMES YOU TURN ON HOT WATER AND IT RUNS FINE.THEN ALLOF A SUDDEN THE WATER STOPS AND PIPES BANG.WE HAVE 44PSI COMING IN FROM CITY


What you're describing is "water hammer". This problem, left unchecked, can cause big problems for your home's plumbing. Water hammer is result of quickly shutting off the flow of water in your home. The faster the rate of water flowing when it is rapidly shut off can result in very loud banging. The banging is caused by the pipes shaking in the walls, ceilings and any place they aren't secured. This repeated shaking causes soldered and glued joints to weaken and eventually fail. The most common sources for water hammer are toilets and wash machines, but even quickly shutting off a faucet can cause it too.

An short article about water hammer is here. Below is a link to images of products designed to arrest water hammer and associated noise.
