    Electric cooker, random operation

    Hi, My (admittedly old) electric cooker is playing up. Sometimes it works fine, but on other (seemingly unpredictable) occasions, it fires up (either hobs, grill, or oven) fine but dies after a few minutes. At other times, the hobs/grill don't get up to full temperature and the oven...

    Want shower but not sure which type???

    Hi all, I'm wanting to install (or have installed) a shower. Space is a constraint so it will have to be over the bath (no separate cubicle). My system is gravity fed for the hot water and doesn't have a header tank (the cold comes straight from the mains). CH is pumped if that's of any...

    Is it possible to fit a pump to the HW supply?

    My mains water pressure for cold is fine and would have sufficient force to be used in a shower, sadly the hot water pressure is rubbish and doesn't have enough force to travel the required height. My bath has a mixer tap with a shower head attachmet, so I was wondering whether it would be...

    Clearing sludge?

    Hi all, Thanks for your help so far with the cold radiators :( Last night I bled all of the radiators that I could (some are painted shut..) and also bled the pump and checked the impellor for roatation. The water from the radiators is black. All was looking pretty good and the first...

    Bleeding pump and freezing rads

    Hi all, System is gravity fed with a pump for the CH. Pump was replaced in February this year (Grundfos). At the moment, most of the radiators (I have 5) are begining to get warm but after about 15 mins I get a squealling noise from the pump (turn of and on again to re-set) and radiators...

    HW must be on with CH

    System is gravity fed with a pump for the CH. Manual for electronic control states that the system can be plumbed in one of two ways: 1) CH and HW independent 2) HW must be on with CH Mine is setup as option 2 and I'm wondering: 1) Why it would have been installed this way? 2)...

    Noisy pump - what to do?

    Okay, used CH for the first time last night with no problems, come to switch it on today and there's a screaming noise coming from the boiler unit. No noise with just HW, but wails like a banshee with CH activated. I assumed that it's the pump sticking and disassembled, removing front disc...

    Vibrating/Banging noise from Pipes

    Hi, hope you can help with this.. I've got a gravity fed hot water and central heating system that's making weird noises (ooer). At the mo. the central heating is turned off and only the hot water left on. When I turn on the hot tap (not always but often) a vibrating/banging noise...

    Hot water fine, but no heat to radiators?

    System is configured so that to get CH you must have HW on. All fine with HW, but no joy with radiators. They just went cold in the middle of the day. Wall mounted thermostat makes expected click when twisted, so I'm assuming all fine there. Control unit lights up as expected and boiler def...
