    What exactly trips? If a heating appliance tries to light a few times and fails. It will lock out and need a manual reset to warn you of trouble.

I have a baxi combi boiler which wont start and trips the electric..plumber has changed fan,ignition and now pcb to no!

Start by diconnecting main supply to Boiler (at the boiler input) and see if it trips the electric. This would point to fault in wiring from board to boiler.
Then check several points with meter to find short-circuit.
If not, then you have to TURN OFF THE GAS SUPPLY and connect and disconnect items such as solenoids, switches, board etc; until you find what causes it to trip.

I want to fit an RCBO into a transformer, when the transformer is not plugged into the supply will the RCBO trip as there is no supply at that time?

The functions of an RCBO are: 1)Trip in the presence of over current
2) Trip in case of imbalance between the current in the live feed and the return.
To answer the question, will it trip if the transformer is disconnected? I would say that in the absence of any current at all(since it's not connected), the RCBO would not sense current or current differences since the circuit is dead. Therefore, it should not trip. I hope I understood your question properly. Let me know what you think.

Our machine is about 4 years old now and has recently begun tripping the GFI sporadically. In most cases it does this when the steam pump is on, either for steam or heating for hot water. Sometimes, it...

Your seals in the steam boiler are gone and it is leaking water to the switch below. The steam boiler is located just above the switch on the lower left side. You just have to replace the seals (O-rings)

I need to power flash a vaillant boiler. can you please help. water goes hold and cold, sometime the heating stop but the water works and vice versa. i was told by an engineering that it needs power...


Although not a PC problem, i have had this same issue on my Vaillant Boiler, the problem you are describing is not a power flush problem, you need to clean out your exisiting diverter valve or purchase a new one

The diverter valve is repsonsible for either providing hot water or providing hot water to the central heating, when this valve gets stuck in between the symptoms you have described above occur

I would also not recommned that you do a power flush yourslef as you may end up damaging the boiler and its pump

If this has been useful please leave postive feedback/vote/testimonial - Thank You Again -

I have an ideal standard he30 boiler instaledi have an ideal standard he30 boiler instaled about 6 weeks ago. the boiler keeps losing presure about half a bar every 2 days if i dont top it up it will trip...

You have a problem that the installer does not know how to fix so they are just stringing you along hoping that you will give up and find some one else or forget about it..
You need to tell them to
1. fix the boiler correctly
2.take it back out and give you a new one at their expense
3. or tell them you will call another comapny to fix it and will give the bill to them to pay.
You did not get what you have paid for... do not pay them any money to come out and troubleshoot the boiler.
The boiler should work as the instructions say or someone did something wrong...
Sometimes it is best to call the boiler company and talk directly to their Tech. Support people.

I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

If you disconnect the element wires and the machine works, but when you hook them back up it trips the circuit breaker. Your element is bad (shorted) and need to be replaced.
