Customer Question

Hi, I have a Ferroli F24 Combi boiler at a house that I am currently renting. It gave me some hot water 2 hours ago but the c/h did not come on (ie no heat in the radiators). The only light on the display on the boiler indicates "Electric Power Supply (Permanent Light)".
Any idea?
Thanks!

Do you have a switch on the front for hot water or hot water & heating?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

No.


I have 1 dial switch for the hot water and a separate dial switch for the heating.


Need to know ASAP if I can sort it out easily or if I need to call my landlord.

Expert:  Andrew Smith replied 3 years ago.
The only quick fix (without any flashing lights showing) is to turn back into hot water only a couple of times and back again, try turning the room stat up and down a couple of times, and making sure the system pressure is at 1.5bar.

Let me know what happens
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Ok. Thanks!


 


I have followed your suggestions.


 


So, it has now been 10-15mins and this is what I currently have:


 


The Central Heating light went on to start with and it remained ON for a few minutes and it is now flashing (intermittent) - for the last 10 mins or so.


 


Electric Power Supply (fixing light) remains ON permanently.


 


The heating came on and it is now running.


 


So, it has now been 10-15mins and the heat is running in my radiators and I have hot water and everything seems to be running ok.


 


Yet, the light indicators are as described above.


Which leads me to the folowing questions:


 


Can I consider the problem "fixed"?


Is it something that might happen again and/or that I need to be concerned about for in the future?


Is it something common, minor or something I need to talk to my landlord about?


 


Please let me know what you think.


 


Thanks!

Expert:  Andrew Smith replied 3 years ago.
It sounds fixed.
It could have been a communication problem with the room stat?

Keep an eye on it, but to be honest you have done all you can via this means.
Good luck.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

ok.


 


Many thanks!

Well done
