Ok I think I have done it. Today I opened the wiring junction board that the valve connects to as well as the programmer and found the Grey/Blue wire very loose in fact not making connection to it slot. I have photo attached, it's fourth set of wire from the right side.
So after some fiddling...
Final question should I open up the junction box and check for the orange wire ( which is the rightmost one, correct me if I am wrong) is the orange wire loose, fix it back and close the box.
Offcourse with power supply off from the main.
Yes I have checked turning just hot water on (with heating off) does work because boiler is working (has a flame icon on display) and gas meter runs.
But heating not come on it's own. Problem because every time I need heating I have to turn water on which means very hot water throughout day...
I don't know because a new valve was installed just six months ago, unless I suspect the internal wiring has come loose of the junction box, Or perhaps boiler need servicing which is covered by home service companies.
So what is needed, anything I can do to resolve this.
I am considering signing up for home service like home serve or 247homerescue. Do you think they can come and bring it back to normal, I know they include boiler service because it has not been serviced since its brand new installation about...
Ok when turning hot water on by itself (without switching heating thermostat on) will start the boiler.
Therefore now we know hot water does not need heating on to work but heating to switch on does need hot water on,
The valve was installed just 6 months ago whereas the one before that was replaced went for over 25 years. In fact I did not even need to replace it as my diagnosis of no hot water coming in shower was wrong and in fact the ballcock valve was faulty.
Yes the heating only coming after hot water...
Yes I managed to take a picture of the wiring behind the programmer (pic now attached). Didn't play around with it just re-attached the unit back. But as I said before with pic attached before did re-wiring on the wiring unit when installing the new 3port motorised valve.
Only the wiring unit that is attached. But I remember I did had to re-attach the programmer unit as it was loose and screwed it back, only that I did. I am sure wiring instalment was good.
It's been working as required until yesterday. The 3 port motorised value is about 6 months old.
