Question about Combi Centre DX - Mango

2 Answers

I'm a plumber and was looking at a friend's Ariston Microgenus 28 kW combi boiler today. The problem is the DHW comes out tepid, then within a few seconds of the burner igniting, the temp indicator lights on the front panel show 80 deg and the burner cuts out. The water goes cold again, the supposed temp drops to 60 and the burner fires again- but again only for a few secs til the lights show 80 again. I removed the temp sensor and cleaned it, but no difference. Does anybody know what value in ohms the sensor is supposed to be giving, so I can test it before buying a new sensor?

Many boilers seem to use a more or less common type of thermister although actual fixings vary. My experience of one of these from another brand of boiler was 670 ohms at 10 deg C and 10 -11 k ohms at 20 deg C

Ariston Microgenus 27 boiler - leaking motorised valve


The leak is coming from a seal around the pin that the motor acts upon, the seal does not come as a replaceable part on its own, so the whole flow group as it is called will need to be replaced, approximate price 170 to 200 pounds inc vat, makers part no 998613. plus 2 or 3 hours labour of a corgi registered engineer. If your boiler is more than 6 years old and you have not had to replace the fan or other parts yet, then think about getting a new high efficiency boiler, it could be a better long term solution.

Ariston micro genus combi boiler central heating works okay but domestic hotwater fails to rise but burners seem to be lit and the boiler doesnt appear to cycle dhw temp gets to about 30 degrees instead of...


having found a circuit diagram, realised that the divertor valve was electrically operated.i unplugged this then unclipped the motor from the valve body,the diverter valve is spring loaded and once i'd removed the motor the spring raised the valve to divert water through the dhw heat exchanger,giving us hot water but no heating, if i refit the motor the problem comes back heating no dhw.ordered new motorised valve assembly £30 next day order .
this was a simple fix without having to drain the system down.

Ariston Microgenus 27mffi combi boiler


im an engineer and recently had exactly the same thing with this ariston boiler, i found out it was the the 'air pressure switch', this is a switch which is part of the ignition, it works in conjuction with the fan. when the boiler fires up the air pressure switch makes, if its faulty it can break the circuit mid flow and cause the burner to shut down therefore giving intermittent hot water and heating, theres a possibility that the aps tubes may be damaged as well so ensure they'e condition is good. hope this helps you

Ariston combi boiler


sounds like your diverter valve is passing on the boiler, this diverts the heat either to the rads or to the taps, if its passing through the heating chanel it'll heat up the rads- may also be a scaled up secondary heat exchanger, hope this helps you

Ariston microgenus 27 pressure on 0


Filling loop is underneath the boiler, easily identified as a chrome coloured braided pipe with a black tap at either end. Open right hand tap first then left hand one . Fill system till presure gauge reads just over 1 bar when system is cold. Then turn both taps off.

I have an Ariston Microgenus 27 Combi Boiler


I hate these boilers!

If the pump is not circulating change it. If the pump is ok you may have a blockage in the diverter valve
