    Hi all My parents are having some problems with their system and was after some advice.

    This is exactly how my father has written it down

    "Feed and expansion pipe from header tank rattles and vibrates and hot water gushes from open vent pipe when program on water but not on central heating."

    Had new pump fitted 7 months ago

    Obviously got to get a plumber in but would like an idea of whats up beforehand.

    Many thanks in advance

    Jon

    Most probably a blockage around the feed and vent connections.

    As AGM has said, it'll be blocked or restricted pipework.
    Your heating engineer will also need to check for correct circulation and boiler temperature control.
