    I have a Worchester Bosch Greenstar 25Si Compact Combi Bolier.
    In generally works fine however sometimes it needs topping up.
    To do this there is a little blue leaver on the bottom of the bolier.
    Recently this lever has got very stiff I am almost worried if I pull it down to hard it will snap off.

    Another conern is that I may over fill the boiler (is that even possbile?) if it gets stuck will it cut off at any point?

    I am going to get a quote to get it fixed but in the mean time advice is welcome.

    Maybe you have a strong trigger finger that might break it. :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    OK thanks , first of all dont go near that with WD 40 as someone advised, that blue lever is designed to just gently be pulled on , never force it, just a gentle pull until the guage reads the correct pressure , it is not like a 1/4 tap, you just simply tease the valve off its seat, it is not like an on off vave
