Customer Question
H/L reset lamp on. Overheat/...
H/L reset lamp on. Overheat/ fire valves all ok. Lamp goes off when temp dial returned to almost zero. As soon as any upward movement, lamp comes on. Circ pump is running ok, all rads are now cooling off as must have happened a while ago. Any suggestions please?

The problem has been resolved for the time being. Turned temp of boiler down slightly has overcome problem. Feel slightly peeved that I have paid for service and nothing received. Would appreciate some small return to my PayPal account for lack of response. At least thank you for replying.
