    15YO boiler condemned as flue too long??? Please advise?

    I agree, but this was said by an independent. Others may say different? I'm not making a point in that regard, just that I'm happy with what I have and will stick with it. It's a simple boiler to repair, in most cases without massive expense, so why not?

    15YO boiler condemned as flue too long??? Please advise?

    I agree! Why Should I exchange a working boiler for a new condensing one that probably won't provide much more efficiency without changing the entire radiator system? If I can get out of this contract, I will pay an independent to do a thorough safety inspection. Forget the insurance! I've...

    15YO boiler condemned as flue too long??? Please advise?

    It fits snuggly around the inner exaust pipe. I also added a very thin layer of silicone, but was going to do some research on the heat/steam tolerance. I think originally it was held in place by concrete. The entire installation looks a bit cowboyish to me. It happend when the property was...

    15YO boiler condemned as flue too long??? Please advise?

    Hi, I checked the flue terminal this morning and found that it had fallen behind the garden shed. I have now re-attached: I'll also order and install a terminal guard and repair the rendering around the flue. With the terminal problem sorted, should I go back to the company and ask...

    Many thanks, I wanted some advice before contacting the company. Also, on the service record the 30 point check list hasn't been filled out. Could this indicate he didn't do a service.?? Cheers

    Pump runs for a while then sudden loss of Vs. Faulty PCB?

    I replaced the PCB and boiler is now working fine. One of the switches on the old board has black soot on the transparent cover and it was sparking just before the pump cut out. It also rattles when I shake the board.

    Pump runs for a while then sudden loss of Vs. Faulty PCB?

    Faulty thermostat / sensor? Is the pump regulated or permanently on whilst gas is fired up? The fault finder on the manual says no 230v to pump, replace PCB. I just wanted confirmation before spending £45. Cheers

    Pump runs for a while then sudden loss of Vs. Faulty PCB?

    My Glowworm Swiftflow 75E has been cutting out after a sudden rise in pressure of 1 Bar. It usually runs for a while before this happens, but the timing is intermittent. 230v AC is entering the pump during normal operation, but just before the rise in pressure the voltage cuts out. I’m...
