    Hot water was workign fine yesterday, since then boiler has made a few strange noises(as it does all the time) and hot water has this morning been non existent.

    Also, i think the radiators need bleeding. Is the way to do this radiator specific or boiler specific.

    Thanks

    I would suggest the two posters talk to friends and relatives to get a name of a service engineer who has the ability to carry out successful repairs (most of the time)

    When a boiler stops working, through diagnostics, repairs can be carried out. If the fault is here now gone next minute, even black magic stands no chance of locating the defect.

    As far as self repairs are concerned, I can only say that if you are asking for help on these pages, DIY repairs are beynd most. Major slice of my work is boiler repairs. There are times when I struggle as some makes of boilers or faults can make the me look like an idiot.
