SOURCE: My oil fired central heating

Since you have done a good job bleeding the system, I will suggest that the impeller on the pump is bad. Many times these will simply deteriorate in the volute causing the symptoms that you describe.

SOURCE: My Central heating system as no vent

You are talking about a gas fired system I assume. So no, it's not a big deal. Code now states that you need to vent the gas furnace from the attic or a crawl space and not from the living space. They change this code back and forth all the time. It's nothing to worry about if you do not plan to sell the home.

This does not sound like a thermostat problem. I would be looking for a zone valve or circulator pump problem.

what you have is better than a fortic. fortics should only be used if you have a lack of space to put in any thing else. if you are planning to heat water with the emersion just cap the ends that went to the rayburn and you are good to go. or fit a floor standing oil boiler and heat rads as well. you may have to add zone valves for that to keep water in the tankat the right temp

you will only be able to have the central heating on seperately if the system is fully pumped. Why would you not want the water to heat? it is more cost effective to use the residual heat to heat the water and keep the temperature up. Costs alot more to heat a cold house and a cold water tank

Hi,
In most cases problems with the circulator pump boil down to two problems.
The most common is air in the lines causing an air lock.
The next problem is that the pump gets stuck and is not running even though itmay be hot and seem to be running. In this cause the pump can sometimes betaken apart, cleaned and it will work, but usually it needs to be replaced.

Here is a tip that I wrote that will explain circulator pump problems in moredetail.
