    Whistling underfloor heating TRV

    Don't suppose anyone might have any other potential solutions?

    Whistling underfloor heating TRV

    Yeah I’ve tried that, unfortunately to no avail. Well, that is on page 43 of the manual here under the boiler settings section I selected ‘1’ for the pump head, which I assume is correct? https://www.worcester-bosch.co.uk/support/literature/download/release/6720806944/12633

    Whistling underfloor heating TRV

    We've recently moved into a property with underfloor heating downstairs but unfortunately the TRV on the manifold intermittently whistles whenever it engages. The manifold is an Emmeti TM3-R, which I've managed to find a full working video of here (about 21 seconds to 1:10); Whenever the hot...

    Low current still reaching light sockets even when off?

    Thanks for the quick reply. So just to double-check then, it's not necessarily a problem per se, more just a natural side-effect with a very low powered bulb? As I say it was primarily just from experimenting with varying bulb wattages, for the sake of ease I can live with a slightly brighter...

    Low current still reaching light sockets even when off?

    A couple of months ago I changed all of our downstairs light fittings and all seemed absolutely fine - no problems in that time and all work as expected etc. Yesterday I was experimenting with some lightbulbs with varying brightness and oddly when screwing in a dim 1w bulb, it still gave off a...

    Changing light fitting - finding switch live

    Unfortunately not, I naively thought they’d be labelled/marked correctly like on all the other 3 fittings so just took the previous fitting off without checking, but alas. Unfortunately no discernible markings/differences on any of the blue wires at all, no.

    Changing light fitting - finding switch live

    No obvious way to tell. There are three separate groups of cables so to speak all within their own grey outer sleeve (with an earth, live and neutral within each), but they're all identical and it's not possible to tell from the ceiling which one goes to the switch. Unfortunately I don't have a...

    Changing light fitting - finding switch live

    Apologies in advance if this is an annoyingly common question... Changed 4 light fittings today and 3 of them work absolutely fine. The 3 all conveniently had the switch live marked/sleeved accordingly (blue wire with an additional brown sleeve) so I connected that to live and connected any...

    Loud running water sound through radiators

    Agreed, this is what puzzles me. The same happens when turning off the lockshield valves on the 3 downstairs radiators, that seems to completely shut off any heat getting to the radiators upstairs as opposed to just bypassing them. Truthfully I'm not sure, the house was originally built in the...

    Loud running water sound through radiators

    Don't suppose anyone knows if there's anything apparently wrong with this connection? I've tried setting the boiler temperature down to 50 as well as its KW setting as low as 8 but to no avail.

    Light fitting connection query

    Installing a new light fitting yesterday, it worked fine but it then wouldn't turn off so I'd obviously mistakenly wired it with the switch live somehow. Wires and connections seen below; I'd previously put the 3 brown wires into the live terminal as well as the blue wire with the brown...

    Loud running water sound through radiators

    Here's the TRV. Judging by which side of the radiator gets hot first, I think it's been installed on the return side rather than the flow side if that matters. As mentioned, strangely leaving everything else fully open, turning this down to around 3 prevents the radiators upstairs from getting...

    Loud running water sound through radiators

    Unfortunately I'm not sure! Is there an easy way to tell? From what I can see mine don't seem to have any arrows underneath them whatsoever... The solution to that would just be to bleed them, right? I've tried that unfortunately to no avail. Doing some more research online, I think the...

    Loud running water sound through radiators

    I don't suppose there are any other obvious solutions? Am I right in thinking that if the downstairs thermostatic valves prevent heat from getting upstairs as efficiently, someone somewhere along the line has done a bodge job of the installation?
