    no power to boiler

    Agile is right i think, your expansion vessel has burst, they can be upto about £100 for the part, thats causing the pressure variation you're seeing Your pcb fuse has blown for a reason, could be fan, pump or the diverter i'd have thought Not a cheap repair

    New Combi Boiler needed. Minefield time.

    Avoid Baxi like the plague. Ours is 7.5 years old, has had a catalogue of failures from day 1 and now i'm looking to get it ripped out and replaced. Pita Easy to fix BUT need fixing all the time The intergas sound good to me, simple design

    Baxi cutting out

    I have a Baxi 133HE Recently its started switching off early evening. The stat is calling for heat and the boiler isnt saying no flame but only a pipe at the bottom is warm, all rads cold. Some of the rads are std valves (not TRVs) so they'll always be open and are still cold. I'm...

    Wireless door chime fail

    Hmm, it was mounted near the lock (over hole if old wired one), moving it down below that seems to have worked Very poor range. And no, its a wooden door

    Wireless door chime fail

    Got planning, in build and neighbour complains

    not 3 years ago - last year the amendments to the planning were approved, the garage is complete with an office in the loft. the smackhead neighbour apologised and all is cool again, we keep our distance, a new hedge is growing to screen them out :D

    Got planning, in build and neighbour complains

    donk.. it's an interesting point so let me add some context. previously we've been to his 40th birthday bash, also been to a gig with him. the dorris was concerned he was a bit of a goon so she wanted to keep our distance (he fell out with a lifelong mate who was literally always round his...

    Double Garage - how much to pay

    that's the plan mate. My annoyance is at the gap between 'ballpark' and reality.. i'd expect some potential variation but 8k to 27k is a ****ing **** take imho
