David,

The fact that you're getting a little burst of domestic hot water suggests that the boiler is capable of circulating hot primary loop water through the heat exchanger, but doesn't necessarily do so when it needs to.

What seems to be lacking is a recognition that domestic hot water is now being drawn off, and that the boiler needs to fire up and divert the primary flow through the heat exchanger.

A good place to start might be the flow switch (usually in the bottom of the boiler, where the cold water supply comes in) or the electrical connections to it.

check to see if the expansion tank is completely full of water or isolated from the rest for the system. If full it needs replacing, if isolated (valve turned off to it) then turn it on. When a hot water heating system cannot allow for expansion then the pressure will increase when running until the saftey opens.

SOURCE: how to check if pressure switch on halstead boiler 82 combi

Hi I am thinking what your tryig to say is the air pressure switch?
you can check this switch to see if the boiler works by removing one of the sensing tubes from it & by sucking on or blowing as this willactivate the switch you dont have to do it very hard, just gently as you will hear the switch clicking, if the boiler does fire when you click, in order for it to continue to ignite you may have to fold over the tube, when you release it the boiler should stop.if it does work then you will have to change the air pressure switch, but remember this can only be done by a Corgi Engineer

Kindly

Richie

SOURCE: hi,i have a vaillant turbomax

I had this. Open up the main case, take the second inner case front off to expose the boiler.

Clean the thermocouple which detects the flame being lit with some steel wool held with needle nose pliers. It will be all sooty and will turn off the gas as a safety precaution if it does not detect heat fast enough.

Don't listen to the gas man who will say "needs a new circuit board mate" as this is usually a stock response.

just had same problem.  this apprently happens if the power supply has been interrupted or you switch the power on and off.
• The boiler runs for 15 minutes at minimum heat output to fill the condensate trap, the display (K) alternates between -II-” and the boiler flow temperature. This occurs every time the mains supply has been interrupted.

I have the same boiler with a similar issue. The water is more than likley leaving the system from the pressure relief valve, which will be routed outside. It sounds like you have lost the pressure in your expansion tank, which is inside the boiler. With the boiler pressure at zero and the power isolated, the expansion tank can be accessed from a panel at the top of the boiler on the right hand side. You will see a valve on the red expansion vessel like the one on a car tyre and can be pressurised with a car tyre air pump. I think from the manual the pressure should be about 1 bar, but it depends on the length of pipework on your system. A competent boiler engineer should be able to sort this out, but it may be that your valve is leaking, or the expansion vessel has failed and the problem will occur again.

Sime super 90 stopped firing up


Sometimes removing a radiator dislodges build up inside plumbing. Perhaps it would help ,and perhaps not, to see if the radiators have unrestricted flow. Radiators with shut off vavles can have a valve that doesn't fully open or close if not used often enough, Like the valve on a water line. Have your other half flush them out see if that helps. Good Luck

RAds don't get hot anymore


rads not heating could be down to old system ie pipework etc and sludge building up. r there any cold spots on rads? when boiler turning off do u mean going to reset? if so could be over heat prob at boiler . there should be a pressure pipe coming from boiler going to outside if its a combi. if this is leaking your expansion vessel might need re charged as this is where the water will be going.

I have a Baxi Combi boiler and want to add new TRVs to the radiators. Do I need to drain the system or can just turn off all the radiators and hope not much water escapes. How do I add new inhibitor...


You will need to isolate the boiler from the radiators because there is an auto feed valve that will continue to allow water into the system if the pressure in the boiler drops. There should be some valves off of the boiler that will allow you to do this.

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
