I have a Potterton Lynx 2 bolier.

Pressure indictor on the bolier was in the red zone (below 1 bar), however appeared to function fine and no "low pressure" light was switched on. Upstairs radiators however only heated about half way up, and when attempted to bleed no pressure in the readitors. As such re-pressured bolier and bled radiators fine.

Ever since doing this the bolier has had a fault. Starts up fine on timed central heating settings, however after an hour or so stops working. If you turn down the thermostat and turn back up again the boilier fires into life, however, again after an hour it turns off again.

Additionally in the mornings we no longer get the level of hot water needed.

Is there a simple fault i need to fix, as generaly boiler seems to work fine apart from shutting down after an hour.

you need to re fill the system,then bleed the rads. your hitting to low pressure cut off.
