    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 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

    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...

    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

    Yes, I know it isn't a car, but bear with me.... My 16 year old son has a 55 plate Peugeot Speedfight 2. It did run fine until around November, when he started having trouble with poor starting, lumpy running and intermittent loss of power, to the extent that he is now unwilling to go out on it...

    Strange LPG Issue - Not sure who to call...

    Morning All, I have a slightly strange issue with my LPG boiler, but I'm not entirely sure what sort of 'gasman' to call out to it. I'm also a bit nervous about calling people out to a fault that is 99% likely not to be doing it when they get here, but here goes: I have a 7 year old British...

    Dishwasher and Plinth Heater in same Double Socket ?

    I am just in the process of moving things around in my kitchen and am fitting some new units this weekend. I currently have a double socket inside one of my units, served by an unfused spur. Not sure what size cable feeds it, but it is a fairly big one (one of the flatter, not particularly...

    British Gas 430/i EA No Flame

    My British Gas 430/i suffers from sporadic 'No Flame' failures, but at the moment it seems to come on, work for about 20 minutes, and then drop out again, which is making heating up water very laborious. I have heard some talk about cleaning up the flame sensor - Is that something I can do...

    Immersion Heaters

    Wasn't sure whether this was electrics or plumbing, but here's my tale... I have a central heating / hot water system, whereby the boiler does it's stuff and heats up the water in the hot water tank. Not sure what that systems is called, but it's the old 'normal' one. Throughout last night...

    Can I do an LPG Conversion on a Range Cooker myself...?

    Not that it's my preferred option, but if it came to it. I have a new Leisure Dual-Fuel Range Cooker and ordered the LPG Conversion Kit last Friday, to be told it would be here by Tuesday (i.e. yesterday). When I ordered them, I was given all the spiel about having to have them fitted by a...

    Advice on Wiring Options

    Morning All, I'm in the middle of having an extension built and am now setting about the kitchen refit. I am going to get an electrician in, but am project-managing the job myself. I am having a multi-oven range with LPG hob put in, and have started removing units to accomodate it, and have...

    Fireplace Installation

    Morning All, In my house, I used to have a cast-iron insert fireplace, which my wife wanted replacing with a log-burner. I had the chimney swept out and checked (it's a clay liner, or whatever the term is) and, whilst I know I shouldn't have, boned up on the internet and fitted it myself...

    Dangers of the wrong tools

    I don't post much here any more, but I came across this and it reminded me of this place.... The subject below is an ex-member here (notb665), who died in an accident - It was very tragic, and it was made more so because he was one of those posters who had 'lived a lot of his life' on here...

    Draining a Domestic LPG Tank

    I don't think this is possible, and will only lead to conducting a 'Big Bang' experiment of my own, but just in case..... Someone we know is having their domestic LPG tank removed and replaced with an Oil tank instead. The LPG tank is half-full, and they have said that if there is any way of...

    Single Ovens

    Our oven has finally but the dust, and so it is time to buy a 'new' one. However, we are planning on a new kitchen over the next few years, so just need something to get us 'over the hump'. Old oven was a Stoves 600 EF, Single Fan Oven with integral grill etc., and plugged into a standard...

    Indesit WDG1095W - Doesn't turn

    I've got a ten-year old Indesit WDG1095W and it has stopped turning. It goes through the rest of the cycle as per usual - Fills, Drains etc., but does not turn or spin. It doesn't look like the brushes are worn, and there is continuity from the brush connector to the end of each brush...

    Stoves 600EF - Bypassing Timer Module

    I have a Stoves 600EF fitted oven in my kitchen which, I guess, is about 12-13 years old, like the rest of the kitchen. A few years ago it developped an intermittent fault with the timer module, which fails in such a way so that the oven cannot be used. We had it replaced at the time, but...
