    Potterton PUMA 80 - pilot keeps cutting out when C.H. on

    Thanks Steve, that's interesting. I think that I should have changed the whole diverter valve, not only the wax capsule, as from what you are saying the diverter is not working properly. In fact I ran more than 4 galls of HW with the heating turned off, but the diverter was still cold. I'll try...

    Potterton PUMA 80 - pilot keeps cutting out when C.H. on

    Thanks misteryman, although SW8 is not that close, mainly because of the traffic. Bengasman, this is what I am saying, £90 without solving the problem is not acceptable. The parts were £11 (including VAT). If he had solved the problem, no worries and all happy. Thanks for indicating Agile...

    Potterton PUMA 80 - pilot keeps cutting out when C.H. on

    I'd like to solve the problem before the autumn comes. Not only, but the people who are living in that house need the central heating in some cold mornings... Almost in all the radiators there are the thermostatic valves. I guess the water inside the radiator is quite dirty as no one flushed...

    Potterton PUMA 80 - pilot keeps cutting out when C.H. on

    I appreciate I need a RGI to check this boiler out, but do you know anyone who's honest and who's not charging £90 to replace, in 1 hour, a thermal couple and a DHW overheat sensor (£11 for both parts)? Above all when they were still working absolutely ok? I haven't found any RGI I could fully...

    Potterton PUMA 80 - pilot keeps cutting out when C.H. on

    I changed the wax capsule, but hasn't made any difference: as soon as I turn the CH on, after 1 min, the boiler cuts out. Hot water runs ok. Either faulty pump or central heating sensor causing boiler to go to high limit and cut out pilot? Or I should have replaced the whole diverter valve...

    Puma cutting out

    I changed the wax capsule, but hasn't made any difference: as soon as I turn the CH on, after 1 min, the boiler cuts out. Either faulty pump or central heating sensor causing boiler to go to high limit and cut out pilot? Or having good pressure hot water means that the pump is working ok? I...

    Puma cutting out

    Thank you very much Ian. I'll see if I can find the wax capsule elsewhere, as they sell the diverter valve assembly complete. I think you are right in fact I turned the CH on and after 2 mins the 22mm flow pipe was still totally cold, but the water was boiling towards the air vent. I'll let...

    Which boiler for a 5 bedroomed semi?

    Because If I have to live in a 5 bed house I would probably want to install a megaflow system. While if renting it I'd go for a cheaper solution. Thanks for asking

    Puma cutting out

    Thanks Ianmcd, so the wax capsule basically would block the CH system overheating the water therefore cutting out the boiler? If the hot water is working ok, could the pump still not be working? If you turn the CH on after 60 secs you can see steam and light drops/spray of boiling water from...

    THANK YOU ALL! I'LL HAVE A LOOK AT THE MODELS YOU MENTIONED. This is a place we'll rent out therefore I need to compromise on price.

    Which boiler for a 5 bedroomed semi?

    Thanks in advance for your advice. What boiler would you use for a 5 bedroomed semi-detached victorian property: 2 en-suite, 1 bathroom, gas hobs and gas central heating. The price, as always is very important. Glow-worm 35 cx? Glowworm Xtramax HE combi? Baxi boiler? I am sure you'll come...

    Potterton PUMA 80 - pilot keeps cutting out when C.H. on

    Thanks Penfold46, I previously read all the posts you sent me but this problem seems to be a different one. Also in the posts you sent me the real problem is not mentioned in the end therefore I am still very unsure. I had a Gas Safe Registered to have a look at it and replaced the thermal...

    Puma cutting out

    I Have a similar problem. I hope to get a few tips. I wouldn't like to replace this Potterton PUMA 80 which is probably 10 years old, as we'll have to renew the whole system in 6 months, but the pilot keeps cutting out. It happens when the central heating turns on. Today I ran the hot water...
