    why repressurise accumulator tank every 3 months?

    Took old accumulator tank to tip yesterday. Noticed label on it saying tank should be repressurised every 3 months.... Why? We never did this - basically because we didn't know you had to. Is this why it needed to be replaced when only 4 years old? This is something we could easily do...

    We have a Neff oven B1451. The fan is not working but the oven still heats up - not much good on fan oven setting but can use it as a conventional oven. Is it likely to be the fan motor and is this easy to replace? All help gratefully received. Thanks

    I have an Ideal Minimiser SE which is approx 3 years old. Three weeks ago the PCB (PCB 41) blew and was replaced. The fuse in the switch that powers the boiler also fused. This fuse has now gone again and we are without heating and hot water again. It is a 3 amp fuse - could we put a 5 amp...

    central heating on even though not timed to be

    My central heating came on in the middle of the night even though it was not timed to be on. When I checked the timer, the timer was not on. The timer came on as usual at 6am and turned off as usual but the heating is still on although I don't think the water is (the motorised valve is shut)...
