Low pressure coming from Hot Water Tap

I have a Worcester 34i Combi Boiler and recently the water is not as good coming out of the hot water tap, so i tested how many ltrs a minute i was getting from both cold and hot. The result of this was 15 ltrs a min from the Cold tap and 6 ltrs a min from the Hot tap. The manual says you should get around 10 ltrs a min from the hot water, so i am losing around 4 ltrs a min from the hot water and dunno why this is all off a sudden started to happen. I would be grateful if anyone could help or advise with what they think could possibly be the cause of this.

    Okay cause a lot of times when you have the hot water heater up stairs away from the bathroom it takes time for the hot water to get to the place. And when it has to go far it will loose some pressure. It is common

it sounds like your shut off valve might be bad even though it turns on and off by turing it doesn't mean that the washer is not stuck to the seat and not opening, try replacing the valve

I have a Worcester 24di combi boiler and it's not working I have a red flashing tap light have represurised the pressure but still not working I have no heating or hot water can you help me please


Red flashing lights usually mean trouble.
There is not enough air getting to the combustion chamber, or the chimney is not working properly. (Stopped up flu)
If this is not a pretty obvious problem, it is better handled by someone who knows a lot more about it than us.

Flashing red light on Worcester 24i junior combi boiler


Pressure is ok? at 1 bar or above
I think on this one there should be a reset button [red] on the left hand top of the casing - or lower the control panel [ phillips screw on each side] and the button is on the left of the base plate. Press this and try the heating.or hot tap
P.S. if you're on a prepayment meter check you have gas.

Worcester 24i combi when in shower hot water flicks on and off can hear gas igniting and extinguishing


This is lack of water flow through the diverter valve.

First have you got a good flow from any cold tap? If yes then see below

If I remember there is a pipe carrying cold mains crossing the lower front of the boiler with an in line filter usually clogged. Remove clean & replace
check also any filter in rising mains to boiler

another cause is the diverter valve itself - diaphram inside may be punctured/split
