Question about Heating & Cooling

Open Question

I have a Betacom Glowworm 24c. I installed it and everything was fine for a couple of weeks but now the DHW temperature will not get above 35degrees when I open a tap fully, if I close it down reducing the flow by 50% the temperature increases to 64degrees which is fine. It is almost as if the boiler can not keep up with the flow rate but it was ok when first installed, any ideas anyone??? Any help is much appreciated. Jim

SOURCE: Vaillant Ecotec combi boiler -

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.

SOURCE: Domestic oil fired central heating.

many times the feeder tube from the bottom of the tank becomes perforated. the return tube is ok most of the time . try switching the 3 8 tubes from inlet to outlet and see if problem resolved. if so the the tube down into the tank is flawed.

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.

SOURCE: we seem to have developed

it seams the valve that senses water flow is not operating properly,causing the boiler to keep heating the water when it has nowhere to go,i,e the taps turned off,thus boiling the water.

I have a 2003 pontiac sunfire that runs hot and then is fine for a couple weeks . have put it in the shop several time .Any ideas?


Difficult...

Running hot would come down to a blocked radiator, a collapsed hose, a faulty temperature sensor or a cylinder head/gasket problem.

it could also be the gauge or even a bad earth on a temperature sensor.

Does your car exhibit any signs of overheating .. steam .. boiling radiator ... rough running?

It's strange that it runs fine for a couple of weeks and then runs hot. To me that suggests a temperature sensor/thermostat problem coupled with the outside air temperature.

What did the workshop suggest?

What could be the fault with the Supreme- Galanz model KFR-25GW/A4 when switched on goes into standby


check that the temperature setting is not at or above ambient temperature as the machine will go into standby until the thermostat is activated by a higher temperature that what it is set at.. So if the setting is 35degrees and the room temperature is 25degrees it sensors that it need not turn on and will go to standby until the 35 degrees becomes less than the 25 degrees.

Hello, I can help you.
The thermostat cycles the refrigerator on and off. The refrigerator normally runs as long as the temperature inside the refrigerator is higher than the set temperature. If the temperature inside the refrigerator is cold enough and the thermostat still does not cycle off, the thermostat may be defective. If so, you need to replace it, because it cannot be repaired. If the thermostat is not defective, you may have a problem with the sealed (refrigerant) system, in which case you should contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

I have a vitodens 100-w combi boiler and tried to turn the heating on just to give it a working as was advised. However, I have no heat coming to my radiators. The boilers seems to be working as my hot...


Here's the deal: If your Vitodens 100 has outdoor temperature sensing capability, either built in or via external aftermarket control such as Tekmar or other, and the temperature outside is above warm weather shut down (WWSD), then the boiler will not operate for space heating, but will operate to make Domestic Hot Water (DHW) only. Generally speaking WWSD is facoty set at 20*C, since this is normal room temperature so the boiler will not need to operate at temperatures above this number as it is warm enough outdoors to heat the house to comfortable levels.
If your Vitodens 100 does not have outdoor temperature sensing capability then you should check to see if your room thermostats are operational and calling for heat since the boiler is only responding to this on-off control based on room temperature. (turn up your room thermostats)
In both cases you need to make sure that your heating system's distribution pump and zone valves are operating correctly.
In any case you should be calling a heating contractor if you suspect that there is a problem with your boiler and/or heating system.
Good luck.
