    Reillo G40 burner locking out after at least an hour.

    Good afternoon Ladies and Gents, I have a customer whose boiler locks out periodically after at least one hour. My initial thought was the oil supply and checked that and the filter, replaced nozzle and oil supply hose. Ran fine, obviously I can't wait for it to not work. Pump pressure was...

    Hi all, looking for a bit of advice. I'm GSR, been repairing the above boiler for a few weeks. Problem after problem. So far I have replaced the diverter valve, APS, Pressure gauge and PCB. DHW great, CH comes on runs for approx five minutes then cuts out. Rads get aired but that's it. Was...

    Elusive gas cock service isolation valve part

    Hi All I have a leaking gas cock for a Thorn Olympic boiler. I have looked at the MIs, they show the part in the spares but not the part number. Does anyone have an idea how I might get it, as the phone numbers on the MI's no longer exist. Thanks in advance

    Grandee 15/22 Wall mounted Oil boiler, smoking from electric

    No it was dry, I stripped it down, checked for insulation breakdown, remade all the connections. Spoke to the tech guys at Heating World, they no longer make that type of panel with the 11 pins relay (which by the way My Hub were selling for £70 but Farnells Electronics do it for £10!!!!)...

    Grandee 15/22 Wall mounted Oil boiler, smoking from electric

    Hi all Here's one for you. Called to the above boiler, wasn't firing. On inspection, the reset button was lit, so reset it. Fan then cut out. Took cover off, water seemed to be coming from the baffle cover, looked above it and spotted that the Auto air vent was open so close it. Dried...

    It was the solenoid, pesky thing. Thanks again for all you input. I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal labotomy :P

    Worcester Bosch 18/25 oil fired boiler trips electrics

    Thanks for all the advice. I have isolated the transformer -trip. I spoke to WB techies and they said control box - replaced - trip. I have disconnected the solenoid and the boiler does not trip but goes into lock. The solenoid stem is a bit dodgy, the locking screw was a bugger to get off...

    Worcester Bosch 18/25 oil fired boiler trips electrics

    Hi all Boiler has just started tripping the electrics, fan starts ok, soon as it goes to fire. Electric trips. Initially I thought it was the pump. But alas no. Sounds more expensive. Any ideas greatly welcomed. Thanks in advance

    Gloworm Economy Plus 50 B groaning then stopping

    It's due replacing in the spring time as the house its in is being reconfigured. So the boiler would be moving regardless. Any ideas of a quick fix to make it last?? Is there a product on the market that would actively remove the scale from the exchanger if it was taken out to clean from the...

    Fitting a DT92E to Promax FSB 30

    Hi all I've just been asked to fit a Honeywell DT92E to a Potterton Promax 30 FSB. It has a BP2000 programmer and Honeywell centre. It does not have a user thermostat fitted hence the DT92E. I have racked my brains staring at the Honeywell Manual hoping for some lightbulb to go off in my...

    Hi all new to this, I have a Beko Frost free, free standing, fridge ferezer. Recently the fan in the freezer compartment has been making a noise. On closer inspection it is the fan blades rubbing against a build of ice. :? The back of the freezer now has a large build up of ice. Is there...
