Question about Heating & Cooling

Open Question

My Baxi wm-511-rs boiler GC No 4207708 has been off for a year. The place was rented and they used electric fires. Hot water was obtained again via electrical hot water tank. Must admit I'm not sure if this tank also heats warter by using input from the boiler. I switched on everything, set the thermostat and timer thought I'd bleed the rads nothing came out! So I re-lit the pilot but it won't fire up to heat the house. Any suggestions would be of great help please.

My boiler dosent come on i have no hot water but when i turn the heating on boiler works but still no hot water what should i do


Hot water is gravity fed through your pipes. When you turn the faucet on the water will flow through the pipes. If your hot water heater is natural gas driven relight the pilot. Same if oil fueled. If electrical, check fuse to see if it has blown or the circuit breaker has tripped. If either has tripped, replace it and if it blows again the heater has a serious failure, you might need to buy a new one. If pilot won't light on gas unit, try relighting after 5 minutes, could be a bad thermocouple.

My Baxi Combi 80e boiler turns the heating on randomly. With the wall thermostat turned down and even with the boil switched to hot water only the heating still fires up when unwanted.


If the thermostat wire run passes anywhere through, beside or inside any metal surfaces and the wires touch any of the metal its the same as if you turn the stat to on. I've seen this a few times. Easiet way to detect it, if its inside the house is at night in the dark. Look around when its doing this you may see the small spark when it goes on. Otherwise you will need to inspect the entire run from the stat to the untis, etc.

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.

Baxi solo WM 50/4 RS pilot light is lit, Boiler will heat water but not rads have you any ideas thanks sam


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

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
