    Wireless Thermostat - What am I looking for ?

    Thanks. I think, in my head, it seemed easier to have the receiver where the existing thermostat was, rather than have to fanny about wiring stuff at the boiler, and having a hole to plaster in the front room...

    Wireless Thermostat - What am I looking for ?

    I have a Worcester Boiler in my garage, which is wired to a thermostat in the front room. All of the programming (heat levels, times, etc.) is done at the boiler, so the thermostat is just used for changing the temperature and advancing the programme. My wife wants a thermostat that can be...

    Cylinder Tank - Does this sound right ?

    I'm getting an EA If I understand you correctly (just to get it clear in my head) you are saying that when the tank gets near heat, it turns the gas down, but not enough gas is getting through then so that it is failing ? That kind of makes sense, as I do always have hot water, but just need...

    Cylinder Tank - Does this sound right ?

    I have a BG branded Worcester 430/i boiler, fitted about 13 or so years ago. Lately I have been having a lot of trouble with flame failure errors. It is just set to Water Heating at the moment, and I have observed that it always seems to be failing when the tank is actually pretty hot, so I...

    Replacing Boiler with no possible Flue location

    It's kind of into a small enclosed downstairs back yard. No photos just yet, I'm afraid.

    Replacing Boiler with no possible Flue location

    Asking for a friend, so I may be a bit sketchy on details, however.... A friend needs their boiler replacing. They live in a converted old-building (split into several smaller units) and, whilst their old flue-location was compliant when the old boiler was fitted, it isn't any more. Not only...

    Extractor fan to UK Power Plug

    If, for some reason, you just want the fan to spin whilst mounted on a worktop or something (like you were making some kind of home-made fume extractor to use in your shed for when you are soldering), then yes, albeit with a few safety precautions thrown in. If you want it to extract moisture...

    Gas BBQ - Is this a ridiculous idea ?

    To be honest, that hadn't actually occurred to me, but I just went and double-checked and it is Propane. One of these - https://www.albiongas.co.uk/product/10kg-gaslight/ So, LPG is Propane, right ?

    Gas BBQ - Is this a ridiculous idea ?

    Thanks All, From the sound of it, something like this is what I need, then ? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-Calor-Propane-LPG-Regulator-Red-1-3kg-h-fits-all-calor-gas-red-bottles-46330/350721593064?epid=928305705&hash=item51a8a2cee8:g:VSwAAOSwxp9W1kfE

    Gas BBQ - Is this a ridiculous idea ?

    I have a Gas BBQ that runs on 10kg Propane tanks with a quick release 'Gaslight' Connector My home is run on 47kg LPG tanks up the back of the garden. Getting a refill for the 10kg Propane tank costs about the same as the cost of refilling one of my 47kg bottles, which stings a bit. Would a...

    Peugeot Speedfight 2 Moped

    About 27,000 km, though the MOT history suggests that may be an unreliable figure. The guy we bought it from was about 22 Stone, so God knows how he ever got it moving....

    Peugeot Speedfight 2 Moped

    Two stroke. When I sucked on the vacuum pipe, I did get a good squirt of fuel out (which is kind of a pity, as that is what I was banking on).. Now, funnily enough, he has got it into his head that cleaning the carburettor is a massive job, and is also very keen to take off the cylinder head...

    Easy plug wiring

    Blue has an L in, and Brown has an N. And then it's the other way round from that. That's how I remember it - Simple.....

    Peugeot Speedfight 2 Moped

    Thanks. It can be a little difficult trying to get info out of him regarding pinning down a cause, but I would say that it does seem to be a cold and/or damp type of thing...
