Double check that the programmer is calling for the boiler to fire, and also that the thermostat is turned up enough.... you will hear it click as you turn it up... if the radiators still dont get warm...
then In the airing cupboard there should be a pump on a three port valve that says A,B, and AB on the different pipe outlets... It seems that this is possibly stuck in one position.... Sometimes the servo motor on top of the three port valve (square metal box with wires going into it) goes weak and requires replacement, these are not expensive from a decent plumbing spares shop I.e Pts (plumbing trade supplies) and are a doddle to install, just isolate power to it, take square the top cover off the valve to reveal the innards and you will see it straight away... Like a round brass cylinder with a flat top... It should have two screws holding it in...

Hope this helps
Thanks
Steve

SOURCE: Vaillant boiler (VCW GB 221)

The movement of the diverter valve is critical on this appliance, and is located on rear right of the boiler, when hot water is turned on, theres are two microswitches, which must break (they both close in Central heating mode), if pump is running, it is recognising the hot water demand, check microswitches are breaking, if not, it tends to be a defective servo valve (located above the water valve), or a blocked/ restricted control line (small copper tubes which connect into the servo valve)

One thing I would check is the flame sensor. Your boiler may not have this on it but I have seen them act like this before. If you have one I would replace it. Hope this is ofsome help. Thanks

Have a Baxi solo boiler 340PF, have hot water but no heating, pilot light will not stay on. how do I fix it so I get heating please?


it might be the thermal coupler....it is a piece of wire that goes from the pilot to the thermostat. very inexpensive. .I am a 50 yr old woman, and I changed mine on my furnace twice..Home Depot or equivalent should be able to help. Google "thermal coupler"

Hiya. I have an old baxi boiler wm 38/RS . The pilot light is on but the boiler will not fire up . Can u help me


Rubbish!
Cleaning the jet is a job ONLY for a gas fitter as it involves disturbing both the case seals and the gas pipework. DON'T RISK YOUR SAFETY, besides which if the pilot wasn't powerful enough it would continually go out.
Check (if you're competant to do so) that there's 240vac across the gas valve solenoid connections. If so then the gas valve will need replacing by a GAS SAFE REGISTERED fitter.

I have a Baxi WM old boiler. Hot water only needed


there should be a switch which toggles between hot water only /// hot water + central heating /// & possible off on
Either on the boiler or on a separate timer control

Baxi Boiler not firing, pilot light ok


first check the pilot is alight, it sounds like it is cause you can hear the boiler click. that click is the gas vale solenoid trying to open, if there is 240-230volts at gas valve when you here the click and pilot is alight the gas valve is broken. if you test for voltage look on the gas valve and see if its 240 or 24v obviously if it 24 v check for 24 volts, let me know
