Boiler compartment ventilation will not stop you getting hot water . Its sounds like you have problems with a sensor or the water section on the boiler .

Potterton Suprema status light.


Hi,

Are you getting Hot water and Heating?

The reason i ask is because I don't think you have a problem.

On this boiler it has a 'pump over run' thermostat incorporated into it, this ensures heat escapes from the boiler by using the pump to cool it down.

If you are getting hot water and heating, leave it well alone, if you reset the boiler this can have adverse effects on the boiler and evenually cause malfunction.

However, if you find that you are not getting Hot Water or Heating, then the most common fault on this boiler is the PCB (Printed Circuit Board) it is the 'brain' of the boiler and the most common fault on this make. (£160 + vat)

I hope this helps,

Steve

No central heating back boiler


back boiler run from a gas fire? check the instructions to operate the gas heat to the back boiler not just the fire
I presume that this a fully pumped system - air lock doubtful There maybe on/off valves on the pipes to and from the back boiler [situate close to cylinder] make sure they are on - anticlockwise turn
or there could be a blockage in the outlet from header tank usually in the loft. or If there is no water in it maybe the mains cold feed it is off.
Note if no water in it DO NOT USE the back boiler

The hot water and central heating wont work together


what size of gas line is going into boiler and water heater? is it black iron ? natural gas or propane? have you checked gas pressure at water heater and furnace ? if they work fine individually then you have a problem with incoming gas pressure. Call gas company and ask them if they would come out and check gas pressure.

Gas boiler


hi sounds as though the system is sludged up & needs power flushing.the reason is that the water cannot circulate so over heats & pumps into the header tank.
expect to pay approx 350 400 pounds to have it properly cleansed, it will restore the system efficiency.
The other area worth considering is that it could be a faulty pump os that when th eboiler fires it cannot circulate so in turn expands & vents into the tank.

My advise is to arrange for a corgi engineer to sort it out for you.

No heat!


Ger, do you get your hot water off the same boiler and it that working alright? How many zones and are they controled by zone valves (little boxes mounted on the pipes) or circulators (small pumps)?

Boiling water sounds can indicate hard water deposits in the boiler or that your aquastat is set too high allowing the water to heat up higher than it should. Check your boiler guage and let me know what temperature you are recording. Get back to me with the answers to my questions, we'll figure it out.
