    Hi

    I've recently moved into a new place with an Vaillant ecoTEC plus 824, which has been providing me with hot water perfectly over the past 2 months. Now its time to turn on the central heating and I'm not getting anywhere. With the dial in either 'ON' or 'TIMER', nothing is happening- no radiator symbol on the display, no heat in the radiators, no sound from the boiler. I've tried changing the temperature- pushing it even to the maximum makes no difference.

    The water is on the Warmstart system.

    Am I doing something wrong, do I need to call somebody out?

    Thanks for the help- much appreciated.


    Claire

    when you turn the heating knob does the numbers change on the display?

    YES! :rolleyes:

    I had totally forgotten about its existence (new flat easily done!)

    I just moved it from zero and the boiler kicked into life...along with the radiator symbol on the display.


    A million thank you's!

    hi, I have the same problem except my thermostat is set to 30 degrees and nothing!

    it says the room temp is 27 so I set it to 30 so it should decide to turn on the radiators to give me the extra heat right?

    no radiator symbol & no heat & my poor little baby is getting cold at night now.

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated
