    My friend has a Baxi Combi either an 80e or 105e.

    One of her radiators needed bleeding so I done that for her but now she has no heating or hot water!!!

    Also there's no pressure showing (not very good instructions I know but I am female!!).

    Does anybody have an ideas and is it simple to fix?

    Thanks

    The loop will be under the boiler normally but it could be above it but very likely under boiler

    if its connected up i.e the silver hose is in between two other silver parts not hanging lose turn the black leaver to start to fill the boiler, watch the gauge until it gets to 1 - 1.5 bar and you should be fine.

    Photos would help us give you better instructions

    I'm having a few problems uploading some pics!!

    Just to go back to the black lever.....there is a black valve on the left hand side of the silver loop.If I turn it clockwise then I hear a noise (similar to a pressure noise) do I just need to keep it turned until pressure dial goes up to 1 - 1.5 and how long can I expect this to take?

    Thanks

    Deleted 'cos what I had written wos exactly wot u did. No need to worry. Just remember that with sealed systems if you vent a radiator you need to top the system up manually.

    Your Certificate of Competance in Topping Up Boilers is in the post. :LOL:
