    Puma 100e DHW Flow Limiter

    My Puma 100e is fine on the CH but the DHW flow has reduced over a couple of weeks to a much lower flow rate. It was always a restricted flow for the first 30 secs or so as the water warmed up but now it doesn't increase. Am I right in suspecting the DHW Thermostat/Flow Limiter Assembly has a...

    Potterton Puma 100e tripping out house circuit breaker

    I've recently had a problem with water pressure dropping on this boiler and water flow from the hot tap seemed lower than usual. However this afternoon when I went to turn the heating on again the RCCB in the house circuit breaker had tripped out. Every time I switch the boiler on at the wall...

    Old aluminium double glazed window fixing clips?

    I have an old aluminium double glazed window that I want to fit to my garage to replace an old rusty crittall window.

    My 1998 106 1360cc multi point injection is suffering from an uneven tickover and a slight miss at low speeds. Have replaced Lambda, spark plugs and HT leads but still no difference. Yesterday I had a look at the plugs and noticed the one nearest to the timing belt was black and sooty while...

    Potterton Puma 100e Fan - same as an 80e?

    Need a new fan for my 100e and have been offered one for a 80e which has different part number so I guess it is different in some way and unsuitable? Anyone confirm this? Thanks

    Potterton Puma 100e no H/W or CH and burning smell?

    Had heating on and noticed rads getting cool. Went to garage and noticed strange burning type smell. Tried HW and not working either. Checked Modulation PCB (as I replaced it a year ago) but looks fine - no sign of burning (as do the other 2 boards). When a tap is turned on or CH the boiler...

    My mums got an old Apollo gas boiler which does the central heating ok but has never worked for hot water. She has used the immersion heater instead for hot water.
