Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I have a potterton 80 combi (baxi). The lockout light keeps coming on when hot tap is turned on. I have notice that the pressure gauge is below 1 bar. Could this be the problem, if so how do I increase the water pressure to 1.5 bar? I can find the valve to decrease but not the one to increase pressure. help!!

Baxi banging noise


noise in water pipes is called water hammer and is when the water flow pulsates from an inconsistent flow. Water has mass and when stopped suddenly there is a pressure build up which moves any loose pipes. It can be fixed by putting more securing or mounting saddles on the pipe to hold it steady or you can get a pressure accumulator and it takes up the pressure build up and stops the noise. It is most prevalent when sudden stop taps are used such as ceramic taps or stop cocks and less so when you have to screw down the tap to shut off the water.

Combi boiler will not fire up on heating or hot water. pressure gauge reads approx 2.1 bar red light lit on panel


Hello
The water pressure should be 15 to 12 psi.If your at 2.1 there is a problem with your auto fill valve.

Which means the boiler is shut down on low water.

The auto fill valve is connected to your incoming cold water from the home,shut it off and check the screen inside for dirt or rust,you may need to have another one installed.

My baxi combi 100 he plus keeps losing pressure cant find a leak anywhere inside but some water coming outside from expansion pipe?


If you are having a small amount of water loss thru t&p valve then the valve may just be getting old and need relaced,If yours is a typical valve there will be a small handle in the center on the valve face. Open this valve by pulling straight back on handle end. If it's too hard to open dom' t force it. If you can open it then do so 4-5 times in a hurry ad when it closes tap on on the center of valve where the pivot point for valve handle is. Just tap it lightly and see if the leak slows down or stops. If so I would go ahead and replace the valve. Thank you

Repressurise Potterton Performa 24 boiler


hope this is helpful. On my potterton 24 combi boiler it is the valve that sits the lowest, with a slight indent in the black tap. if you turn this for a short period you will hear a hiss and the pressure will quickly build to the desired pressure, when you can them turn the tap back off.

Vaillant combi boiler problem


when the tap is turned on and the water light on the boiler doesn't this means the diverter valve is not operating it could be down to low water pressure in the house this can be checked at the cold tap in the kitchen. if there is plenty of pressure then it could be the diagphram in the diverter valve is worn or split. the diagphram is only a few pounds but it depends on the engineer you get as to how much money he wants to fit it.
the egg timer symbol (or two pyramids together) is an ignition indicator turn off and on again to see if it will fire with the tap running. reset the boiler with the lower right hand control knob.

Our Baxi combi 130 HE heats the water OK but will not heat radiators. This has happened after a period of not using the radiators (ie. over the summer)


check the pressure it should be in  the green band, check the pump, inside the boiler cabinet lower right.

Alpha H CB33 boiler A and B lights flashing won't start what do i do?


if the pressure gauge is showing below the green mark you need to top up the pressure by connecting the small flexi pipe underneath the boiler then turn the 2 blue taps located either end (slowly though) this will re pressurise the system and it should fire up straight away, hope this helps. KEEP AN EYE ON THE GAUGE THOUGH dont let it go to far above the green bar.
