Hi, I have had my Saunier Duval Therma Condens F24E Boiler for just over 2 years and last month I noticed the water in the shower was getting colder and colder.

What is strange is that the central heating works fine (the radiators are all hot). It now seems to have have spread to all focets, even the kitchen where the water coming out of the hot water tap is now luke warm.

Is there anything I should look at before getting a plumber out?

We are not very enthusiastic about Sonya Duval boilers!

The thing to look at first is your wallet as it may need to be quite well stuffed if you eventually find an engineer who likes working on your boiler.

That may be so Tony, but this particular lady isn't so bad icon_wink.gif
Most likely a blocked plate he, this model seems quite prone to it. Take it out and flush it, it might look like this !!

We charge 136 for that kind of repair including a service.

Your kind of boiler can spring a mains water leak and kill the PCB if its just looked at!

Dirt in the plate does sound most likely and is as a result of the installer not cleaning the system properly. Cheap boiler equals a cheap installation!
