If some taps have really hot and others luke warm, then you might have defective mixing valve, check valve, or crossover on single handled faucet.

Crossover can also cause stacking event. Stacking could be part of puzzle.

Once crossover or check valve or mixing valve problem is solved, if you have really hot water to some taps, then turn down thermostat to avoid scalding.

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

Low hot water pressure


it sounds like you need to up the temp on your water heater so that you are mixing more cold with the hot .be careful hot water can cause burns if valve is 4 years old then it has a limit stop do not set above 120 *you will need allen key and thermometer to check temp

Combi boiler no DHW


if the boiler fires when the tap is opened then the diverter valve is working ok it must be a blocked plate heat exchanger which is the stainless steel rectangular block inside the boiler connected to the pump and the mains cold water.
it will be blocked on the central heating part probably with black scale. it is possible to clean out but sometimes it is better to just change the plate. but remember to flush the system as well or the same thing will happen.

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.
