My boiler has stopped working. It is less than 6 months old. I need to establish what the problem is, i.e. gas supply or the unit itself before I call anyone out

    Hi I need to confirm those details first. But I didn't mention the boiler is less than 6 months old. It is gas and I have not done anything out of the ordinary to make it stop working. I have checked with the gas company and they advised for me to check my metre when I get home just to make sure it is not a supply problem.

Without a brand name and model number it's much to hard and lengthy to even start. What do you use for fuel? Are you out? Have you replaced the batteries in the thermostat? Have you checked to see if the Emergency Switch is on as well as the circuit breaker?

Where do i adjust boiler temp on a gas fired boiler

difficult to say just where the temperature control is on your system. it will likely be an immersion type control located some on or near the boiler. it should have a temperature range scale on it.

First service your unit completely. And then keep 23 degree for better cooling and then observe for 1 hr.
If no cooling, unit may be running with no gas or less gas and more reasons. Call repairman to locate the exact problem.

My f28 boiler is letting water out all the from the run off valve


This is a relief vave,probably rated for 30 psi.You either have air in your heating system causing the pressure to go up.

Or you need a new relief valve,sometimes the springs wareout or rust and iron from the water keep them from reseating properly.

You should have 15 to 20 psi of pressure on the boiler if its 30 or over you need to bleed air from the highest radiator or baseboard,if there is a 2nd floor go up to one and find the bleeder and bleed out air.Be carefull once the water starts coming it will be hot.

Turn the boiler off. Connect a garden hose to the drain bib. Shut the water supply valve off.
Open the drain bib and drain boiler. Close drain bib and open supply valve.
When boiler is full, go to the farthest faucet and open the hot water and let run.
Go back to supply valve and turn off and on a couple of times rapidly this will "bounce" sediment loose.
Repeat above twice.

My air conditioner is 1 month old. it stopped

Find the name on your a/c unit. Then look in the yellow pages under air conditioners. There will be a service company that deals in that brand. If it is less then a year old there should be no problem with them fixing it. It should still be under warrenty. You should not need a receipt. Before you do that make sure your breaker is not tripped. The company that installed tour unit should have record of the install. Good luck

A 2 month old Goodman GMH95 natural gas furnace has been working properly until tonight. Now it starts up properly, but after 30 seconds (and right when the cirulator fan kicks on) it shuts the gas valve...

Goodman's control boards are very sensitive as well as the connections to the gas valves. Check the wires and make sure they are snug and tight. With it being only 2 months old, I doubt the board is bad or the flame sensor(unless it is a used system). So I would just snug and wiggle the wires on the board and the gas valve and try that.

I have a 6 year old Halstead Ace High boiler which has many recurring problems due to a bad fitting. It was never flushed out causing the heat exchange needing to replaced TWICE through clogging and then...

Firstly your system needs a power flush to get rid of the grot, then it needs a good inhibitor to slow up the reappearance of the sludge.

Changing the boiler won't help. Any boiler will get clogged up but the halstead DHW heat exchanger is particualrly prone to getting gummed up. You can clean this out and refit without having to buy a new one. - but without a power flush it will happen again.

I want to take a sink unit out. This means I have to turn off the cold water mains and hot water. I have a Worcester combi boiler and am not sure how to turn off the direct hot water . Can you help

Under the sink itself there should be shut-offs. To turn off the water to your boiler, first turn the power off to it at the breaker box. Then on the boiler itself, there will be some valves. One of the valves will be located in the copper line that comes from your water meter. Turn that one off. If you want to turn off the water to the whole house, right next to the water meter there should be a valve. Turn it off and open all faucets to ensure the water is off. Reverse this procedure when establishing water pressure again.
