Hi I moved into a flat that has a beta com 30 installed and straight away had problems with the heating. The boiler fires up ok and temp will go to 80 then after a few minutes the boiler cuts off as if it thinks the flat is up to temp which it isn't even when leaving heating on for five hour the warmest it gets is 17 degrees. Told the landlord who had had boiler guy out to look he said nothing wrong with boiler maybe rads are blocked. Plumber turned up when I was out and said he took them all off and cleared them but still getting no real heating in flat. The closest rad to the boiler works the best but the rest just get hot near the top but im not surprised if only 40 degrees is getting pumped around most of the time. There's no room thermostat wired up ...would this help or can I bypass the built in one to test it. I've given as much info as I can for now but please feel free to ask anything else that may get me a nice warm flat ....thanks

Is it a betacom c by any chance?
It might just need the return filter cleaning if it is

Yep a gauze filter in the heating return isolation valve. Should be the valve on the right hand side with blue handle but some people fit them incorrectly on the left hand side flow pipe

Yes you will have to isolate flow+return and drain boiler. Ridged chrome nut on the front unscrews and filter is inside
