Hi Guys,

Just need some advice. I woke up this morning to find that the boiler had tripped the RCD and from my fuse box. Upon opening the front lid I discovered there was a little pool of water directly under the 3 way divertor valve.
-
I removed the electrical connector which connects into the 3 way divertor valve and noted it was wet, so I dried it with a cloth and blow dried it.. re connected and all ok now, however there still is very little leak coming from where the 3 way divertor valve connects to the 3 way electric actuator valve.

I have ordered a 3 way diverter valve :

Can anyone please advise, do you think changing this will solve the issue? Or do I need to be looking at something else.

Many thanks

You have ordered a new diverter actuator motor.

But you say after drying that the existing is working again.

But you are planning to do nothing at all to cure the leak which spoilt the original motor.

You also seem to have opened the room sealed boiler cover in your desire to save your money by doing DIY boiler repairs!

you will have to get the leak sorted , you have sorted the motor but the leak will short it out again, you should not be doing this yourself

I have been repairing boilers for years and have knowledge. What I am trying to find out is why it is leaking when the central heating is on. No offence but I didn't sign up to this forum and be told that I should not be doing his myself.. Many thanks

Your posting does not seem to be what a competent boiler engineer would be saying.

If I went to a customer and just replaced the motor then I would be severely criticised afterwards when the replacement fails because I did not address the underlying problem of the leak!

You also clearly did not read the forum rules about advice on gas/combustion aspects!

what advice were you hoping for ? if you sprinkle it with fairy dust it will be fine ? do you always wake up in the houses of the boilers that you have been repairing for years where you gained this vast knowledge ????

It also seems that you may have been repairing boilers without being gas registered!

That is illegal !
