    disconected the filling loop and turned the water back on . The water came out of the filling loop but is not going into the boiler .Can anyone help?

    I have the same problem with my Baxi 105HE and the local installer has said that I must have a leak around the heating pipework and to check the radiators. I have checked them all, and no leaks are evident. There is no water coming out of the overflow pipe but there is out of the condensate pipe - which I have been told is normal. I have to fill up the pressure to at least 2.0 twice a day to get the boiler to start and it drops down to 1.0 after a few minutes and remains there until heating goes off and gradually drops down to zero, so effectively will not come on via the timer. If the unit is set to Hot water only, you can see the needle dropping down gradually until it reaches zero. If the hot water is used it goes up a few small notches but then drops down to zero again and then eventually will not come on for water until it is topped up. Does anyone have any clues on this one yet ??

On the pipework near the boiler there should be a silver flexi hose connecting the two copper pipes ...this is called a filling loop there sould be taps on the filling loop turn on by moving the black plastic taps do this slow ..at the same time look at the pressure gauge on a baxi do not go over 1 bar...............

warning ..if the boiler has lost pressure where has it gone..is there any leaks anywhere..if it persist contact a engineer

Heating Is a closed system, so if its loosing water that fast , must be a leak somewhere, look for green scale on pipework joints, or rusty spots around radiator, espescialy around the bleed valves and plugs at the top, also check the red pressure relief is not stuck open, turn it untill it 'clicks' shut to be sure. When filling fill up to about 1.5 bar then run system warm and go round bleed each radiator, highest first, then top up to about 1.5 warm.

Baxi 105 getting hot water but no heating


Check you have a call for heat from the room thermostat and that boiler is set to winter to allow heating. If this is ok, then double check the secondary circuit pressure - you may need to use the filling loop to top it up as this will stop it running if too low. If all of these are ok, then it could be the diverter valve on the heat exchanger. If this is stuck in the hot water position, no water will be circulated through the radiators.

No hot water coming from combi boiler ( vailliant)


I have a BAXI combi Instant 105 HE bolier. It has been very cold for the past week and the hot water is not working (though the heating is). I have cleared the overflow flu pipe of ice but this has not solved the problem. Any suggestions?

Combi Boiler pressure gauge reading 0, and radiator half on!


The first thing you need to do is to put some more water into your heating system. This is usually done by allowing water from your (pressurised) domestic cold water supply to flow into the system: On older boilers, this is done with a connection (often made with a removable hose) on the pipework just outside the boiler. Newer boilers may have a built-in connection with some sort of removable link (sometimes looks like a plastic key).

Once you've got the boiler up to working pressure (typically about 1 bar - 15 psi), you should be able to bleed your upstairs radiator properly.

This may be all it takes, though the pressure excursions you're getting when you run the hot tap suggest there may be another problem. See what happens to the pressure as the boiler heats up and cools down. There really ought to be very little pressure difference between the two conditions. If you see significant changes, this usually means that the "pressure vessel" (or in hydraulic terms, system accumulaor) has lost its air charge.

The pressure vessel is a metal container inside the boiler, usually painted in red enamel. Somewhere near the top, you will find a schrader valve (like the one on a car tyre), and you can use this along with a tyre pump to replenish the air in the top of the vessel. This will reduce your pressure transients for a while, but you need to keep an eye on it. If the problem returns, you probably need to replace the pressure vessel (or clag another one into the plumbing alongside the boiler).
