Welcome! We keep going until you have all of the information you need.[b/]. Extensive training & coaching also available.

Tell me a bit about your technical background please so that I can coach you appropriately

This is might well be nothing that you will be able repair yourself or simply push a reset button to get going again.

It will most likely need to be seen by a professional Worcester technician.

If you can tell me which direction you are from the center of the nearest city I can look for a well rated service outfit in your area.

.We can go from there if you wish.

ok good.
Are you able to take the outer case off?

If you do turn it off and give a good squirt of wd40 on the spindle to see if we can make it spin faster.

Ask Your Own HVAC Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No power to fan
HVAC Technician: Andrew Smith, HVAC Technician replied 2 years ago
Ok, the power comes straight from the PCB - can you check for power there and hopefully it is a defective APS not closing or the cabling to the fan
Ask Your Own HVAC Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Just to not I think the expansion vessel diaphragm has gone as well
Yes that's where I checked there's also no voltage on the aps terminals
Unless there volt free
HVAC Technician: Andrew Smith, HVAC Technician replied 2 years ago
No should be 240V
Does the pressure rise excessively when heating?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No voltage there mate
HVAC Technician: Andrew Smith, HVAC Technician replied 2 years ago

Central heating light flashing fast
No light on hot water
HVAC Technician: Andrew Smith, HVAC Technician replied 2 years ago
ok, pointing to a sensor fault;
Visually inspect all three temperature sensors on the appliance (combustion chamber cover needs to be removed to see the central heating / primary sensor). Are they electrically connected and look o.k. ?
Ask Your Own HVAC Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Looks like the G3 thermostat is faulty as
Pulled cable off and the lights have changed to alternate flashing on ch and hw
HVAC Technician: Andrew Smith, HVAC Technician replied 2 years ago
That's good, it should only cost about £25 to swap it, but you will need to drain the boiler to do it.
Ask Your Own HVAC Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Is there a way to test the boiler without it
As it's open circuit won't it run without it or is it monitored ie resistance
HVAC Technician: Andrew Smith, HVAC Technician replied 2 years ago
It is a thermal resistor, so the boiler needs the resistance to be between certain criteria for the PCB to know the temperature.
You should be able to get one tomorrow if you call your local Parts Center in the morning.
