    Hi i have a Vokera, mynute 20e. a while ago pump was leaking. turned off water and left system off. 3 months later back in house switched on boiler all ok. 1 month later pressure dropping to 0psi after 2 days. have just looked at pump and it is hard to turn and very hot i beleive it may be seized. also no hot water coming through taps do u think the pump faulty and do i also have another problem, could not find leak from pump 2nd time round.

    If you're saying you've taken the centre screw out and the shaft doesn't turn, yes it's faulty. Presumably the boiler won't run at all?

    If it has a go at running and boils because the pump isn't going (which I don'y trhink it shjould, but ...) then it might well squirt water out of the pressure relief valve. See FAQ for insight on that - Boiler Pressure Problems.
